Already on my second round. Funny, real and refreshing view.
The brute honesty and comedic undertone.
Herself! I always love when the author narrates her own story.
So tired of the shame and judgment of my family, nice to have a laugh of someone who REALLY does understand. Their perception of addicts is some homeless drunk who has multiple DUI's and is disgusting--and they don't skip a beat to make me feel like a loser for drinking. The ironic part-no DUI's, I have not stolen, I have not lost a job, not paid my bills or whatever other variety of nasty titles and images they want to shame me with. Thanks Kristen. Oh and BTW---not all of us RN's are that evil:)
You have touched so many lives by being brave and sharing your story with us. While reading your book, many times I thought how much of it relates to my life and life growing up. It's extremely difficult to hear the agonizing details of how a person in long term recovery ultimately thinks and how much pain they physically feel. Seeing/Reading this gives me a new perspective on how to help my son and others in the same situation. God bless Ms Johnston... you are one amazing Chick!
I enjoyed every word, even as one of those over weight southern type women who are crazy about 3rd rock... but especially as a 6 foot tall woman who shared the same nickname during school years. Started this book employed and finished it the morning after I was laid off... Kristen's words couldn't have come at a better time, and I will love this book forever!
More please! Your the best Kristen! I love your storytelling and want more! Even if you just keep narrating for other books, I have a hard time with women narrators but not with you! Hella funny shit here! Its a must read for all!
Yes. Kristen was so open & honest and graphic; it didn't feel like anything was held back. The most uncensored autobiographical self-assessment I have ever read/listened to. I have so much respect for her doing this.
Very personal, deep sense of feeling a life lived.
The event that changed her life: starting in a London Hospital.
Great book, glad my friend recommended to me. Loved hearing the emotion and passion that when into it, especially at the end. Glad you found ur way 😄 and thank you for helping me discover mine
