If you’re married to someone who leaves the house to hang out with his friends or who stops at the bar on the way home and you’re wondering why he doesn't want to spend time with you (and the kids) I want to ask you a question about a bad habit you may have picked up. And before I ask you, it’s important to know that the reason I can ask is bec ...…

Awhile ago I went skilling with my family in Whistler, Canada and when I came back I just didn’t feel like myself. I would wake up in the morning feeling exhausted after an 8 hour sleep. I kept thinking it was jet lag but weeks went by and I just never felt better. A few years ago I had gone in for some blood work and noticed some of my levels ...…

When you love someone suffering from addiction is it ok to drink around them? Sometimes it’s easy to say “no, thank you” when we’re asked if we would like a glass of wine or pretty beverage since we have grown to hate the very substance that’s tearing our family apart. But other times, we wonder… am I enabling him if I drink around him? If I’m ...…

I love to remind you how strong and courageous you are. I choose these adjectives for two reasons: one--I know they are true about you and two--this disease tries (and sometimes succeeds) at making us feel weak and helpless. But if you’re the type of woman like me who always feels like she has to be strong, who takes problems head on and is con ...…

The other night I was folding laundry - that’s a daily chore with a large family… thankfully, I have a very nice laundry room where I can watch the kids in the pool or playing in the backyard while I fold and stack.

Sometimes the disease of addiction can bring out the worst in us. We can feel angry they keep lying to us. Or depressed because they keep choosing drugs and alcohol over their marriage and family. But if you take away all the dysfunction that addiction adds to the family, if you remove those layers, you will discover a gentle and loving woman w ...…

This week we’re going to be talking about a subject that makes some people (most people) feel uncomfortable. Intimacy (or in other words: sex). Intimacy can be difficult when you love someone who drinks too much or suffers from addiction.

There is a new movement going on about addiction. The men and women who are in recovery are speaking out about their addiction.

What do we do when the one we love keeps choosing drugs and alcohol over us? Most of us feel angry and rejected. Some of us choose to react to our anger by shoving it down. Others lash out. Neither option is good. So what do we do with all the anger that seems like it comes along with this disease? HOW do we get back to a place of joy? Here’s t ...…

Addiction is expensive. Beer, liquor, drugs, pills, porn - it all adds up. I was an oblivious wife and never really paid much attention to our bank statements. Math wasn’t my best subject and I thought it was romantic that my husband took care of the bills and provided for us. http://michellelisaanderson.com/2017/03/protect-finances-addiction/…

When I was married to an alcoholic and substance abuser I stopped taking care of myself and became consumed with taking care of him. Slowly, the things that I enjoyed doing the most took a back seat.
