Women new to recovery find much support; sponsorship and fellowship are new, and everything about the recovery life seems fresh and exciting. With time, recovering women face challenges from complacency to burnout, menopause to weight gain.
Author Cameron has been there, and shares her "experience, strength, and hope" to teach readers how to handle the unexpected trials of double-digit recovery. Topics include sex, family, work-life balance, the empty nest, caregiving, aging, health and fitness, complacency, program burnout . . . and much more.
Diane Cameron is a blogger, journalist, and columnist in long-term recovery. Her newspaper columns appear in the Albany Times-Union, USA Today, the Christian Science Monitor, Chicago Tribune, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Washington Post.
