"Hampton remains steadfast in creating a memoir that shows both the problem and the solution."--Kirkus Reviews When Debbie took the mix of wine and drugs that nearly killed her, she didn't ever want to wake up. After years of wrong turns and facing the end of an acrimonious marriage, she was desperate for the disappointments of life to end. But she did wake up--strapped to a hospital bed. She was critically ill but alive. Debbie had ingested over 90 pills, including ten different prescription drugs, causing lasting damage to her brain and body. She had to relearn how to eat, how to speak, and how to fit back into society. Separated from her two young children, Debbie's problems were only just beginning. Faced with a long, arduous custody battle, she had to discover a new way to live. In the book, Debbie tells the heartbreaking story of how life wore her down, but how through her own resolve, courage, and commitment, she forged a new life for herself. Debbie now has an engaging new life, and a strong bond with her children. The lessons she has learned in life will be an inspiration for everyone.
