Episode 44: It's Not You, It's Me (And the Paralyzing Fear of Being Abandoned)

Tara Demand joins host, Ty Bechel in the studio to discuss alcoholism and Adderall dependency finding her in her 30's.  From experiencing a case of empty nest to climbing the corporate ladder in the medical field, Tara found herself hiding how bad her drinking had gotten. She shares with us how she slowly progressed with her drinking and Adderall use to completely uprooting her life with her husband. The mother of 4 and 2 bonus kids, she discovered her trauma was more severe than she thought. Pinpointing her abandonment trauma to her biological father leaving her at a young age, she would find herself putting other people's needs first so they wouldn't leave her.  After finally revealing her secret of alcoholism to her husband, and later one of her sons, she was able to finally begin her path of healing and recovery. From the discovery of recovery, Tara has launched a new blog and inspirational site for women called the Recovered Woman Project at www.therecoveredwoman.com. Join us for an emotional interview of a mother that was on the verge of a alcoholic collapse before she decided to give recovery a shot (pun intended).
