This has helped so very much

I have felt so alone. There are no words to express the experiences I have had with my daughter, yet you all seem to understand. Thank you for sharing your stories, it helps more than you know as we continue on our journey. I have searched for a group like this but cannot find one - it would be so helpful to find bonds as you all have. If anyone in Utah knows of a group, please please get the word out. Until then, I will continue to listen and hear my story through your experiences. All the best to you and your children.

So helpful

I’ve read a lot of books, made hundreds of calls, spent weeks on the internet. Thank goodness a kind person I met in my first NarAnon meeting directed me to this podcast. The authenticity and honesty of the parents in this room have helped me so much. I realize my problems are not unique. I know I’m not alone, and I know from listening to these people that I can find hope and light in my own life no matter what. Thank you!
