Secret Weapon - A Mother Who Poisoned Herself

My Secret Weapon is that I grew up with a mother who poisoned herself with drugs and alcohol. I never knew her to be sober. She also had a terrible relationship with food and took on a variety of eating disorders. At the age of 38 she passed away due to her alcoholism and malnutrition, I was 16. Growing up in that environment made me incredibly self-motivated to say the least!! For along time I suppressed a lot of my feeling about this but when I had my daughter Venice that all changed. You have to face tough things to get through them. Now I am finishing a program for Integrative Health Coaching so I can help others. I think I have always had the internal drive to share all of this, the body can heal itself if given the right tools.
