I convinced myself ‘winning’ meant getting out, but in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong: in the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud for so long, wash me clean and I don’t recognize myself. So how about I just accept the mud, and the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it? My name’s Veronica, and I’m an addict. Hello, Veronica.
