On the outside, Debbie Hampton appeared to have everything going for her but felt empty and inadequate on the inside. After taking care of her brother as he wasted away and died of AIDs, the end of her marriage to her high school sweetheart in a Divorce Court-ugly split, years of wrong turns, things not working out, and being flat-out disappointed with life, she swallowed handful after handful of pills. The drugs went all of the way through her system wreaking destruction before she was found.
After a week in a coma, Debbie woke up to a very different world with a serious brain injury. Her ex-husband sued her for custody of their two sons, won, and promptly moved out of state with them. And she thought things were bad before? This intimately honest, witty, and wise book is the story of how she got to and climbed back from that rock bottom place to not only survive but thrive.
