A pivotal moment in your life so far?
The most pivotal moment in my life thus far is when I decided to detox off of an ADD medication called Adderall after being on the medication for 13 years. I kept the drug a secret for the most part as I felt a lot of shame around it; I also truly believed that it helped me function day in and day out. However, my life wasn’t where I wanted it to be and my dreams remained an unattainable fantasy that I couldn’t quite grasp. As soon as I decided to stop taking Adderall, I was able to step out of my head and into my heart. I learned the true meaning of joy and the what it’s like to fall in love with myself. Work opportunities began falling into my lap and romantic relationships became so much easier. I feel confident and free and I am excited for what the future holds.
