On this week’s episode, I sit down that Ruth Barry.
This was one of the most eye-opening sit down’s I have ever had.
Ruth wears her story well, no longer in active addiction, Ruth has encountered more tragedies than bears thinking.
When she was just 11 years of age Ruth’s sister, her idol, dies in a horrific incident that rocked Ruth’s family and started her on her journey of self-destruction and addiction.
Ruth faced tragedy after tragedy through her years in addiction and it was while in prison that Ruth made the decision to get clean and threw herself into every opportunity prison life gave her to get sober.
Ruth’s story is as heartbreaking as it is powerful, the woman in front of me fought her way out of addiction and saved herself with the tools prison gave her, She continues to save herself every day with the help of good people, running, and Reiki but above all the love of her children.
