Volunteers became the lifeline…

On September 21, 2008, I awoke to the realization that I was powerless over alcohol – that my life had become unmanageable and miserable. I wasn’t your typical drinker. I drank in the confines of my own hell. Nobody in my life knew of my desperation but me! On that beautiful morning when I awoke, I asked God to restore me to sanity. I called Tom A. whom I’d known since 1975. Within six hours I was at Tallgrass. From the moment I walked through that front door, I knew that life as I’d known it for six years, was about to change. The fear changed to calm! The staff and volunteers of Tallgrass were truly my “lifeline.” Without them, I believe I would not be here today. I’m sure that words will never be able to portray what’s so emotionally embroidered in my heart the love I feel for each and every person that touched me during those 30 days. I pray every day that I can continue to carry the “tools” that I was so blessed to receive from so many wonderful, caring people. God Bless Us All!
