Today Is Nine Years.

Today is my 9th year sober.

Nine years ago today I made it through my first 24 hours drug-free.

That’s nine years of family. Nine years of watching my niblings grow and become whole people. Nine years that added three more niblings to my family. Nine years of shaping them & loving them. Nine years of new friends. Nine years of reconnecting with old friends. Nine years of true friendship. Nine years of creating art. Nine years of words that wouldn’t have been written. Nine years that brought my first published book. Nine years of vacations & parties & conventions & hang outs. Nine years that brought two tattoos. Nine years of helping people navigate the world of disability. Nine years of fighting for social justice. Nine years of blogging & connecting to the world at large. Nine years of tv & movies & books & fic I never would’ve discovered. Nine years of loving my fur babies. Nine years that added two more fur babies to my life. Nine years of pain, sure, but also nine years of gains. Nine years of memories. Nine years of love. Nine years of life.

Today is nine years.
