A Year in the Life of active addiction, written in real-time.
A mother and son's experience
This is the story about a Mother and Son, a story about Addiction. "I can't do this anymore" documents a year in the life of Karen Hardy and Bryan Massey. It was written in real-time over the course of a year. Karen started writing in July 2016 not knowing how the year would end and committed to documenting whatever happened. The hope is to raise awareness of the daily ups and down, life and death, in the world of addiction. There are thousands upon thousands of people who live with the pain of addiction, individuals who struggle with addiction, and those who love them.
Today, Karen and Bryan both reside in Maine. Karen is a Mental Health and Addiction Counselor in private practice. Bryan continues to recover from many traumas he has experienced, is working on an Associate Degree, and lives with his wife and their fur babies. He is living a life as never before and works on healing more every day. We are grateful for the hard work we have put in to be able to continue to heal and try to help others along the way.
