I just have to write a quick post because I've been absolutely inundated with amazing feedback since the item went to air last night. I've received hundreds of emails, numerous new comments on the blog.. messages on Facebook and Twitter… amazeballs.
Every single email and comment has been heartfelt and warm and supportive and kind and lovely. I just feel fit to bursting with all the amazing warmth that is coming through my online spaces. And the overwhelming message I am hearing is … 'I am just like you'.
It's just phenomenal how many of us are out there. Take a look at all the comments on the last couple of posts particularly.. it's un-bloody-believable.
I write in the book how lonely I felt when I first started on my sober road. It is a very lonely place to be when you're locked in this addicted mindset and it's not visible to others.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. You are not alone. We are not alone.
I will reply to every email eventually.. I am going to do that because it's amazing what you've all written to me.. it just might take me a while, that's all. But I've read you all and I've cried and I've smiled and I've understood and I've been deeply touched.
Love, Mrs D xxx
