4 Relationship Issues That Could Lead to Divorce
Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
Amy Dresner says growing up in a privileged life contributed to her years of abusing drugs, alcohol and sex.
"I'm not the type of person anyone would think this kind of stuff could happen to," she tells us. "If you could snort it, shoot it or have sex with it, I did." She says her battle with addiction was "endless... voracious... and terrifying."
The "My Fair Junkie" author says her battle began in college with drinking. This lead to anorexia and bulimia. Her eating disorder then morphed into a crystal meth addiction. Her years of abusing of crystal meth caused Amy to develop epilepsy. She also says she developed a sex addiction, had multiple suicide attempts, threatened to kill her husband and ended up in jail. Amy says she has been to rehab 6 times and to a psychiatric facility 4 times and attempted suicide 3 times.
Now sober for 4 and a half years, she realizes, "For the first time in my life I took full responsibility for myself and I also realized, no one was going to take care of me. My whole life, I wanted to be taken care of, and I lost everything."
She tells The Doctors she now feels that drugs and alcohol "never fixes the problem... it always makes it worse." She says she is now allowing herself to
"feel her feelings" even when it comes to things like her recent breakup, which she says "gutted her."
