I am just living one day at a time. Figuring out life as it’s handed to me. My life today seemed like an unattainable dream this time 5 years ago.
Life is free- in recovery
Hey guys! My name is Amanda Bunch and I started this page to talk about the ups and downs of life. I was a rebellious teen that started experimenting with ways to fill this hole inside myself. At 32 I am still deciding what I want to do with my life and I know I am not alone! I’d like to put my story out there to reach the ones that feel as if nobody understands. By looking at me you would never know that I’ve been down such dark paths. I am definitely an example of “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
I am a wife, a part-time mom (more on that later), a recovering drug addict/alcoholic. My current occupation is a waitress because not many professions like to hire convicted felons! But I do the best I can with what I’ve got.
I feel like there are so many people in this world today walking around like they are ok when in reality they feel absolutely alone because they are afraid to admit those terrible things they did in their past that still haunt them every day. Or they feel like they can’t talk about the crazy thoughts they have that they know are socially unacceptable so they push them deep down and always feel like they are pretending to be something they are not.
I am here to lay it all out. My deepest and darkest secrets. I hope to reach those who need some light in their lives and know that it’s ok to admit those embarrassing things that eat them alive. I’d like to share my experiences with learning how to live instead of just existing. 5 years ago I was living in a camper and didn’t expect anything to change. Then it did…..
