Anna’s Story

When I came to Cyndi’s I was completely broken and hopeless. I was suffering on the inside, barely hanging on by a thread but no one knew because I held it together and presented myself well. I kept trying to get sober on my own but I was consumed with anxiety and the obsession to drink and I had no idea how to cope with life without alcohol. I knew that no one should have to go through life suffering every day.

I knew it didn’t have to be that way but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t stay clean and sober. I was crumbling day by day and I knew if I didn’t get honest and get help quick, I wouldn’t survive much longer. Leaving my children for 60 days was not easy, but I now know that it was actually the least selfish thing I could do for them. It was the biggest gift I have given them, myself and all the people that surround me in my life. My mother finally got her daughter back, and the mother of my children got back after those 60 days is a mother I am proud to be. I am filled with gratitude to be able to guide women through the miracles of the healing that happens here at Come as You Are Women’s Addiction Services Ltd.

With deep gratitude,
