How T Kira Madden’s ‘Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls’ Made Me Stop Playing the Grief Olympics
T Kira Madden’s debut, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls, shifted my understanding of myself to a degree I’ve never experienced.
I'm fairly certain my brother-in-law relapsed on heroin, and I don't know how to tell my sister that her husband relapsed.
My wife told me that she lost the entire mortgage gambling. She has a gambling addiction — and that night, it came to a head.
The sad reality is that many of us lose ourselves in addiction, and not enough make it out. In honor of National Recovery Month, I'm telling my story.
The recovery community is advocating for increased access to treatment and reducing stigma, yet the language we’re using is undermining those efforts.
We don’t have the luxury of personal choice in our use of language when we are talking about the highly stigmatized condition of addiction.
When I decided to get sober, I simply wanted help to stop drowning myself; I certainly didn’t envision digging up my painful relationship history.
So began the long, toxic love affair between my depression and my addiction. They battled silently and stealthily for control over my body and mind.
