Ep024: James Hamilton Healy – The Recovery Struggle Is Real, And Worth It

Hi everyone, it has been a little while since I’ve recorded an episode but this will be worth the wait. I’m sharing with you an interview that I did with James Healy. I am lucky to call him a friend, but also we work together.

He produces my podcast and every time I talk to him, I’m laughing and learning something new about him. Just prepare to be inspired.

Before I dive into that interview I want to just let you know how much you mean to me. Thank you for listening and thank you for sharing this journey with me. I’m always sending so much love to you and to your loved ones and just sending you so much hope.

And I just want to remind you that I know how painful this journey is, but I do feel like we have been chosen for a reason and this absolute faith and trust that we are exactly where we’re supposed to be right now and just know that. You’re not alone. There is an army of moms out there who are loving on you and supporting you from afar.

James shares some things from his history and it reminded me of something, a story which I also share at the start of this episode.

During our chat, James reveals some fun facts I did not know about him, along with some of his most challenging moments in life, and how he has created a rich, full, and joyful life in sobriety.

He helps us understand some of the fears and struggles those in recovery deal with, and gives us a few ideas on how to cope with them. James also emphasizes that recovery success must truly be desired to be found and that each path is unique for every person.

As always, love and best wishes, Shar

S3E5: I’ve Been Waiting For You

I’m back with a special episode. I, like many, have struggled a lot this past year. But I’ve found some wonderful help, I am so grateful.

S3E1: Learning to Live with Your Loved One’s Addiction

I wanted to let you know that if you are struggling with anything, whatever it is that you’re going through, if you’re struggling right now, just know that you’re not alone. And I too have been struggling over the last six months.

S2E3: Advocating for Addiction Recovery… And Our Loved Ones

What’s been happening? During this episode, I chat with you a little bit about what’s been going on in my world. I know my last episode kind of left things in just a state of flux. I had recorded kind of what I was going through at that moment and I try hard to be as transparent as I can with this podcast while also respecting my daughter. I feel really, really blessed because my daughter is so supportive of what I’m doing…

S2E2: That Familiar Place

Tonight, I’m recording this episode from an old familiar place. I recently learned that my daughter, who had been doing so well. Left rehab after 15 months. She just walked away from it. All the hard work. The relationships that she’d built. Right now, this second, I am sickened with worry, fear, and feelings of guilt … wondering what went wrong? What did I miss? And why?

S2E1: Dealing with Traditions and Old Memories

Today, I want to talk about traditions and how hard we push ourselves to recreate old memories, perhaps memories from a time when things were easier and how hard that is to do realistically, because we’ve changed.

To The Parent of An Addict

A page from my journal… I’m putting it all out there. For other parents of addicts who may be struggling, or anyone else who has thought about giving up.
