My name is Jamie.
My life started out pretty typical.
But I knew I was different.
What I saw as a brand new life was the start of a major downward spiral.
In the midst of my troubles, I got a tattoo of a dragon fruit flower. These flowers blossom one time in their lives, at night. They then die, but the blossom becomes the most delicious fruit. I think this means that we can become our most beautiful in our darkest times.
I soon realized that getting clean was the easy part.
Jamie shares the full experience of her journey from rock bottom to a life of love and wholeness in her newly published book. She writes under the pseudonym Wendy Lutz, and has changed all other names in the memoir as well. The memoir, entitled Dragon Fruit Flower: My journey through addiction to wholeness, is available for purchase on Amazon.
