Bravo to you in your efforts toward sobriety! I know the feeling of being reborn as an adult with a diagnosis and medication; I try to describe it to other people as ‘that was then, this is now’. I also know the feeling of regret and sadness over missing diagnostic opportunities when we were growing up.

While you may still pass through some dark times, I hope your new understanding of yourself will sustain you and your family.
