  • I found this to be the most inspirational and moving Podcast yet! I’ve listened to it three times and counting. Brooke’s story was so heartbreaking and I could relate to so much of it, a recovery inspiration. Xx

  • Wow… it may not seem like it, but it is terrifying for me to be so open… and this comment has made the worry, anticipating, and doubts of – should I – just melt away for the moment! Thank you for your support, Kim. It is nice to not feel alone in this crazy thing called life. Xoxo -Brooke
