I thought is was from a real place. There are many things that she didn't have to talk about that put her in a bad light. Addiction is a tough battle, especially when you are always around it and probably will be a lifelong battle. But reading her words, ses clearly trying. She doesn't put blame on anyone nor does she blame anyone for their reactions (Val B).
I wish her well and I hope she's able to overcome it. Literally One Day At A Time!!
