It is not every day we get a little “hug” and affirmation of being a loud advocate about gambling addiction and problem gambling. When first started my gambling recovery blog, It was to just share how I was working my recovery from full-blown gambling addiction. Share what it was like, how it devastated my life and me and my husbands financial future. It almost cost me my life twice with two failed suicides as I was also suffering from many mental health disorders that went undiagnosed since childhood.
In fact, after my first suicide attempt, and then a long stay in an addiction/mental health crisis center after leaving the hospital, both my primary Doctor and the center Psychiatrist agreed I was suffering from high mania, anxiety, severe depression, PTSD, and a few other disorders. All the symptoms came to the surface while deep in my gambling addiction. So much so that right before my downward spiral I began to abuse alcohol in the last 4 months prior to my crash and burn first failed suicide attempt. That was how out of control I was and some of it I don’t even remember to this day.
So now, I am a dually-diagnosed woman maintaining recovery. I am proud to blog my journey, share what I have been through in hopes of helping as many as I can who are stuck in the insane “Cycle” of this addiction and disease. And why I am honored and proud to share that my “Little Gambling Recovery Blog” had been chosen again as a “Top 25 Gambling Addiction Website and Blog” sharing my story, my recovery, HOPE, and helpful resources to many …I came in at #5 this year and very proud of this accomplishment.
