the last decade has taught me a lifetime of lessons. i’ve learned that secrets make you sick. i’m learning how to be a voice and not a victim. i’ve learned that sex is natural. i’ve learned that love is necessary. heartbreak is unavoidable, and loneliness is brutal. i’ve learned that the key to being happy is to tell your truth and be ok without all the answers.
what inspires me is remembering that I deserve to be the best that I can be and also knowing people look at me as a role model. It gives me the fire to continue to be strong and try to show people that there’s so much more to life when you take care of yourself and when you are able to be all that you can be.
« I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet. I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time. I want to thank my family, my team and the stuff at Cedars- Sinai who have been by ny side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you. I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and i look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I wll keep fighting !!!
