This is a story of women coming together in a desperate time of need.
In 2000, I was divorced after 33 years of marriage, and I did not do well with that. I went from anger to despair to totally pissed and back again through every negative emotion imaginable. I then continued to endure three years of agony, embarrassment and pain before I came to my sense and filed for divorce.
I could easily be writing this from the State Penitentiary. I was that mad when I found out my ex-husband who had promised to love, honor and cherish me through sickness and health for better or for worse until we died, told me he had a girlfriend.
Suddenly everywhere I turned, women were telling me their similar stories of betrayal and divorce. All of us were trying to cope the best we could, be we needed help.
So I started a small group in an effort to make the trip through this emotional jungle easier.
We Love Bringing Women Together & Helping Them Navigate This Journey
Everything Grew From That First RADiCAL Group.
After we got a little more stable on our feet, the stories and structure of that first group led to the book Radical Recovery: Transforming the despair of your divorce into an unexpected good.
We decided to take that passion, experience, and knowledge and create the best program we could for women going through divorce. We included our stories, we recorded the steps we took and succeeded with, we collected all the important sayings and ways of living we tried to embody.
And lastly, we got rid of all the fluff. If you’re looking for pie-in-the-sky recovery, this isn’t the place.
