Guest Blogger


I was honored to write a guest post for one of the most prominent and successful drug treatment centers in Southern California, The Pat Moore Foundation.

You can check out their website here and here is a link to the article I wrote.

They said some nice things about me which I appreciate.

Meanwhile, I am not doing well at all today so I hope the article I wrote doesn't make it sound like I have "arrived" and have it all figured out or that it gets easy as time goes by.  As we all know, it doesn't.  It does get easier as we learn how to deal with it, but it never gets easy.

Big day in court tomorrow.  This time we will have some sort of closure one way or the other.  I am nervous.  I'll let you know what happens.

Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara

I'm sorry Barbara....that it's tough now. And I know what that's like...worrying about court....especially the night before...ugh. I'm thinking of you so much and sending you some love and friendship. Please let us know how it goes tomorrow. I wish I could do something to help make this easier for you and for Keven. Please try to picture something positive happening in his and your future. I know this is happening now, but it's not all that's going to happen. Much better days can be ahead.

And yes...your article was wonderful, just as everyone else has said !

** I loved how you also gave our blogging community some print :) I once talked about the blogs and all of you at a Nar Anon meeting and this old lady really bashed them....although I know she didn't know what she was talking about or how wonderful you all are !

Beautiful article, Barbara. I hate that you have to know so much about this, but I'm glad that you are willing to put your experience and knowledge out there for other parents. Love and peace to you for being willing to share.
