TEAM LADY VETS' Fundraiser:

One Step at a Time

THE STORY:

After spending six years in the Air Force, returning to civilian life was very overwhelming. I wasn't sure how to channel my feelings and emotions in a positive way, so I turned to drugs and alcohol to cope. With the drugs and alcohol, I didn't have to feel anything, or deal with life on a day-to-day basis. Addiction took me to an all time low and not only was I suffering, but my close friends and family suffered because of my addiction as well. Ultimately, because of my poor decisions and actions, I was left without my friends and family and homeless, and I had two options: inpatient rehab or prison. With the help of the services at the VA- providing assistance with my addiction and mental health services, I was able to start my life over again. Today with a 12 step recovery program, regular visits to my mental health provider, and exercise, I am able to function as a productive member of society again. I want to be able to give back to other veterans who are struggling and be a power of example to them as well. I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service, not only to other veterans, but to my community as well.
