Hello, I’m Tracie

I’ve posted previously about remaining mostly anonymous on the blog and social media and my struggle with that decision. I’ve also been open that my name used on these resources, Anne, is not the name I go by, it is my middle name. Not to confuse everyone about my identity, but I need to start going by my first name, which is Tracie. I still don’t plan on sharing this space with my circle of friends and family (other than my husband), but I also know that if someone stumbles across this or my other social media accounts, they may figure out who I am. I’m in a better place about owning my story these days and while it may be difficult if that should ever happen, I’m more prepared to handle it.

With that, I apologize for any confusion if you are reading any of my posts and see a sign-off by Anne, that is still very much me. However, from this point forward you will see me as I really am – Tracie. Thank you for following along, despite the confusion!

I’m fortunate to be where I am today; although I’m still figuring it all out, it’s finally time I owned my truth. Newly sober as of 2.20.18 Follow me on my new site: http://www.thetruthofbeingus.com

    1. Totally understandable. I’ve had a need for a variety of reasons, and I’ll still try to keep it low key. As I branch out into the recovery community I’ve felt a need to put my name out there – but that is definitely not for everyone.

      1. I get where you are coming from, and while I can’t directly relate to that concern – I will say that I absolutely hate that it even needs to be a concern. I truly wish things were easier all the way around for you. You continue to do only what is comfortable for you, maybe one day that comfort zone will be able to expand even further. xo
