With the help of staff, my family and friends, and each and every client, I trusted the process and am thrilled with the results. In a few short days, I am going home with a gigantic toolbag by my side. My DBT skills, with my support system, can guaide me through any future bumps in the road.
Through unfortunate circumstances, I walked through the Brookhaven doors for the first time. What I've found is that my trauma was a neccesary catalyst to bring me here. My heron wing had been broken for years before I recognized that I wasn't flying. The silver lining is a beautiful thing. Without the events earlier this year, I would not have seen the need for help. My program worked because I was ready to work my program.
Whether tear filled nights or laughter filled days, I am grateful for each and every moment.
