Toos on finding herself
For a long time, Toos’ day revolved around alcohol. An excellent cook, she would spend a long time in the kitchen creating new dishes, because that was where she had invented brilliant hiding places for the drink. Her alcohol abuse led to increasing isolation, and even aggressive behaviour hurtful to those close to her.
Now fully recovered, today Toos is retired and a proud grandmother who spends a lot of time with her grandchild, enjoying life again and no longer feeling alone.
“I'm glad because I've found myself again. Because I'm worthy of being loved. Because I don't feel so lonely anymore. I'm back again, I'm part of things again… It's a real feeling of happiness inside - hey, I've made it!"
