LOVE FLASH MOB TODAY! Join Us! by Abby Wambach - 2017-12-12

Abby Wambach, text's publication from 2017-12-12 20:02:19 :
When Glennon and the Together Rising team informed me that the next Love Flash Mob would be for the opioid epidemic I was grateful that they chose to tackle something that NEEDS to be addressed, and that it’s something I have personal experience with.

I know how addictive opioids can be and how dangerous they are. I know how slippery the slope can be, and for me, what at first started out as pain management for playing, turned into abuse. It happened so fast. I am very lucky to be alive.

And you might be thinking, “that will never happen to me,” and maybe you’re right, but it happened to me, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, and World Cup Champion. From that perspective, I kind of think it can happen to anyone.

I was able to join the Together Rising team when we went to visit Hope on Haven Hill and I was astonished at how much I saw myself in these women. Women who are strong. Women who persevered. Women who are new mothers and scared shitless. Women who are dealing with so much, and then add the guilt and shame the world puts on them. Women who are learning how to be vulnerable.

This is me. I am these women. And now I can pay it forward to honor those who helped me. They need our help. I know I did. Let’s buy them a home today so mothers and babies can stay together while they heal.
