Disclaimer, so you can read this without fear that I may relapse and return to being a pot-head/drunk/stripper: I do not use drugs anymore. I have not used any drugs for over 10 years and do not plan to. Now you can feel safe reading my totally off-my-rocker opinions about drugs.

When my daughter went in at 18-months-old for surgery to have her adenoids removed, and my husband, her daddy, came with, I cried in the waiting room. Not because I worried about her surgery. They were tears of relief. A sadness I unknowingly clung to nearly my entire life rose to the surface then released, as if a window were opened on my chest and a dozen butterflies fluttered to their freedom.
Growing up in a single-parent home was all I’d [...]
