Hi guys! I want to introduce something new for us to talk about.
Every week, I am going to post a question of the week.
This week’s question of the week is: At what point did life change for the better?
For me, there are so many really bug turning points in my life and my progress has been really nonlinear. I think, if I look back at the time when things started to get better (well, they got a lot worse first, and then up and down– but it was a “beginning”) was when me and my brother went into DCF for the last time, that was a really painful and scary time in my life but also really important and most likely saved my life and my moms and brothers. I think we all recognize that there was so much dysfunction and pain building that a huge catharsis was coming, and it would have been very damaging.
TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. We know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
