Judy, Fifty Stories for Fifty Years
My name is Judy. I live in Fultondale. I have two children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
I knew I needed help when I lost another job and was bout to lose my house again. My children said they no longer want to see me and from seeing my grandchildren.
There would be some times at night where I honestly did not know if I was going to wake up the next morning. I said, “that’s it, I’m too old for this stuff. I have nothing to show.”
What’s different now? Every single thing. God gave me life. Before I was just really existing; just living for the alcohol. He gave me life. Everything is different.
As the Intake and Program Manager, I minister to women just coming into the program. Give my testimony. Offer hope. I reassure them that it will get better.
