Welcome to my Blog and My Journey of Recovery
Welcome to my website. Did you find me because you want to recover too?
We are all on a journey in some form or fashion of recovery. Who has not experienced some type of tragedy in their lives? If you have not yet, “thank God,” but it is inevitable that you will. Some are more difficult than others. Some of us want to recover and some stay stuck in grief, anger or denial.
We must all make choices!
After the tragic suicide of my previous husband I knew I had to make choices. I could either move on in my life or live it filled with grief and unhappiness. I chose the former. And that is why I am here. I hope you will find something inspirational on this site or use it as a way to express your thoughts.
I am a woman on a journey of recovery from loss after the suicide of my husband in 2005. It has been a long voyage, but I was able to create a new identity and find happiness again after much hard work.I hope that you can, too.
One of the many paths to my recovery was finding the Tango. The dance breathed life back into me and I found Tango to be a new passion. I married Dr. Gerald Chodak on 11-11-11 and we both have a commitment and love for the Argentine Tango.
My memoir about my life with Steve, the suicide and my recovery, was finally finished on 3/19/16 after 10 years of writing. It was cathartic for me and now it’s ready to be read by you! My hope is that it will encourage you on your own personal journey of recovery from loss.
I am looking for an agent or publisher. Please contact me if you know someone who would be interested. I appreciate your help.
In 2014 I was published in Tom Sweetman’s book, “From Grief to Greatness.”
In 2015 I won a memoir contest and published in Matilda Butler’s book, “Tales of our Lives:Fork in the Road.”
