    Hi Maria,
    I’m sorry that things have been so difficult for you. You’ve been through so much but you’re still here and fighting for a better life. Addiction is so difficult to overcome and relapses are normal but I believe you’re going to make it. I don’t know what resources there are in Canada but like others have said, check our Find Resources tab and hopefully you can find what you need. Keep fighting and keep us updated!

    Much hope,

    Hi Maria,
    Thank you for updating us. I’m so sorry you’re going through so much, and I hope you’ll be able to be around your daughter again. I hope that they’ll be able to prove that you finished the treatment. I’m really sorry about what your adoptive mom said – I can’t imagine how hurtful that must have been.
    As I was reading this, I noticed a lot of positive statements, such as “I got this,” “I want to be a survivor,” and “on the bright side,” and I’m glad that you’re keeping these things in mind. You are strong, and I believe you can make it through this. I like Alyssa’s suggestion of taking things one at a time. It can help a lot when we feel overwhelmed about what’s going on in our lives.
    I don’t know of any resources in Canada, but I encourage you to keep looking. You deserve to get help and feel better. I’m proud of you for the steps you have taken so far. We’re here to support you if you need anything from us, and please continue to stay strong.

    Hi Maria,
    It is good to hear from you again, thank you for coming back to update us. You are incredibly strong and brave and I am amazed at your ability to keep fighting for yourself and your daughter. I know that most of our resources are focused on the US right now because that is where our main office it located. I do not have a lot of knowledge about resources or healthcare in Canada, but RAINN is an international group and may be able to help you find resources in your area. You can call them at 1-800-656-4673 or they have a free web-chat at http://www.rainn.org. Keep going, you can do this and you aren’t alone.
    Sending you love and strength,

    Hi Maria,
    It is good to hear back from you. I am sorry somethings haven’t been good, but things will get better overtime. Remember to stay positive and take everything just one day at a time. If one day is too hard, take it one hour or min or even second at a time if things are hard for you. Remember you are strong and can make it though this. Continue to stay strong.

    Thank you for sharing. You are taking good steps to heal. It is also awesome that you want to help other women who have been through similar experiences. I’ve found that when I reach out to help others it helps me see that I’m not alone and gives me strength to keep working to heal. It must be hard to not have the support of your family. Keep reaching out for resources. It can be a daunting process to find the help but it is out there. And always know we are here to listen whenever you need us.

I’m so sorry that you were put in those dangerous situations at such a young age, and that you are still struggling with the aftermath of those events. It sounds like you have the right idea of how to move forward. I’m impressed with your progress towards sobriety, and you are doing a great job at identify the steps you need to take to begin healing. I think it is very admirable that you want to help girls who have gone through situations similar to yours. Keep thinking positive, and taking small steps.
