My efforts to drink moderately were hopeless. Other people could drink and still hold it together, it seemed, so, why couldn’t I? You see, I really didn’t want to stop drinking. The scary truth was becoming clear: continuing to drink after it had caused me so many problems was a sure sign that I needed help.

I’d been in recovery for an eating disorder for years, and I knew what I should have been doing: I could have called someone for help or gone to a therapy group — but I wasn’t doing those things. Why? This was one of the most frustrating parts of my recovery. Even though I knew what I should be doing, I wasn’t doing it.

The diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) was not new to our family. OCD was something we were familiar with, but our knowledge on how to recognize and fight it was minimal. No parent wants to see their child struggling. And here we had to stand by and watch our daughter struggle with not one, but two, serious mental illnesses.

I remember sitting in my goodbye group, listening to these amazing men and women tell me how I was going to be so successful and happy. Yet, there was this panicked voice in the back of my head saying, “You're WRONG! I can’t!”

When my daughter was in treatment for anorexia nervosa, we learned that recovery had to become our number one priority. Nothing else in life mattered if our daughter didn't eat. Once she returned to school after eating disorder treatment, we had to formulate a new plan. This is what helped.

The loss of my friend Jenn is the harshest reminder of why we do what we do. The healing journey is long and arduous, no doubt, but we must have hope and keep moving along because people can and do fully recover. As we begin a new year, consider how you might strengthen and revitalize your fight.

Helping a loved one be successful in recovery is hard work. The thought of another relapse is frightening. Not being committed could mean the difference between success and failure for the child. It is not for the faint of heart but, when you love your child unconditionally, it is just what you do.
