Turning Points in Life

Life Turning Points

For Alissa Maglothin, self-recognition has become her savior, whether it be realizing that she is having a ‘colorless day’ or not enjoying something that she used to, she can acknowledge her bad days.

“The biggest turning point in my life has been when I get so low that I don’t realize it,” Maglothin said. “Some days when I realize I am not acting like myself or enjoying the things I used to, it almost feels like I am stuck in a day-to-day repetitive motion.”

Admitting to having a problem has been hard for Maglothin. Being ashamed to admit she has a problem or not knowing how to ask for help has also become an issue.
