Physical wounds heal and we can deal with them They are easily treatable with medication and bandages and we know that with treatment they will heal beneath the bandages But emotional scars are much complex; they enter a being in ways I can barely articulate and come out in all kinds of destructive ways that are not easily definable They stay with us for life no matter how much we journal see counselors cry and scream They are always there somewhere beneath the smile as a reminder of the past p49I am no stranger to loss I know what it feels like to have your heart burst out of your chest into tiny pieces scattered and shattered I know the strength it takes to muster a simple 'Hello' and half smile when you feel like you're dying inside I also know how vital it is to take care of yourself and to allow yourself to grieve I know how important it is to simply suit up and show up for life each dayNo matter how bad things get or how sad mad frustrated scared or angry I feel today I have one certainty Life will get better; I will not feel like this forever p245 6

Ps of her mother's cocktails By age 13 she was binge drinking and well on her way to regular cocaine and LSD use Her young life was awash in alcohol drugs and the trauma of rape She anesthetized herself to many of the harsh realities of her young life in. Reviewed by Dianna Geers for TeensReadToocomBased on her real life experiences Jennifer Storm shares her difficult but triumphant story Drinking blackouts drugs addiction and suicide attempts were all parts of her life in her teens and early twenties As you read about Jennifer's experiences you will be amazed because the entire time you are reading her story you know that she is writing her story so she has to get better right And there are things so out there that one would either think that there is no way this person would ever have a normal life or that the story must be fiction But both of those thoughts would be incorrect What I loved about this book was that Jennifer was not afraid to share the ugly side of her addiction and substance abuse it took her to some very daunting places that many would be too ashamed to share I also was happy that hers was such a success story When Jennifer decided that she was finished with that lifestyle she was truly finished Of course she received help to do so Often times our strengths are also our weaknessesthe fact that once she decides to uit using she is able to do it will offer hope to many because it can happen However for those who have tried to stop but have relapsed I hope it doesn't send them the message that a relapse means they won't be able to get better the next time Or the next Or the next Regardless Jennifer's story is one worth reading My best wishes to her and her continued success
