Episode 9: Doing It Sober with Daniella Park
"On September 11, 2006, everything changed. I was in the shower after a very hard night. I felt at the end of my rope with utter loneliness like never before when my body decided to fail as well. I started having horrible pains like someone was stabbing me in my stomach over and over. My hands were stuck closed, and my face was contorting. I figured this was it, I was having a stroke, and now I was going to lose the last bit of life I had: my looks. We both know looks only get you so far, but that’s as far as my delusional mind could see at that moment of my life. I dialed 911 and had my mother rush to get me. We went straight to the hospital. We sat in the waiting room because there were eight other critical patients in there. I remember telling my mother as I sat white as a ghost, “I’m so sorry Mom I’m not going to make it."
