As Diana says, "Every flower that ever bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there.” Diana has gone through hardships in her life and, in the past, she's turned to substances to cope. Nowadays, though, Diana is embracing a fresh start: "Let’s go try again. You know, pick myself up, dust myself off, and, you know, shoot for the moon." Diana reminds us that people with substance use disorder deserve the kind of love and care we’d give anyone, wherever they are at in their journey.
