Rachel’s Recovery Journey

Rachel Miller, a stroke survivor and gratefully recovering alcoholic, has marked seven years of sobriety. Recently, her journey has taken an unexpected turn, revealing severe post-stroke symptoms that were initially perceived as neurological vision impairment. However, upon further understanding, these challenges seem related to a vestibular disorder. This newfound realization has redirected her path towards a renewed focus on rehabilitation.

Amidst these changes, Rachel made a conscious decision to document her recovery journey through the medium of her voice. The Recovery Daily Podcast embodies Rachel’s approach to life—an unwavering focus on the possibilities that lie ahead rather than dwelling on what she may have lost. Her belief is simple: sharing her experience, strength, and hope can be a catalyst for profound healing in both herself and others.

Join Rachel as she navigates this transformative journey through recovery, embracing the lessons learned, the resilience discovered, and the joy found in every step forward.
