I turned 29 years old yesterday! So, in honor of my birthday, and since this is a recovery blog, I am going to give you 29 things I have learned in my recovery so far. One more year till 30! Yikes!
FIRST TIME VISITORS
For first time visitors, or if you needed a reminder, this blog is all about recovery. For myself, I am recovering from bulimia. Over half of my life I have struggles with this addiction and now I can finally say that I am on a solid road to recovery at this time in my life. I have been purge free for about a year and a half now. There are so many things that I have learned and still will. However, I wanted to take the time today to share with you my top 29.
