  1. Hi
    I am so glad Intervention is returning it has changed so many life’s mine included. Being sn addiction counselor myself it is always sad to not to be able to help everyone. Always devastating when you lose some whether it be to relapse or death. Makes one think what more could I have done? The answer is of course nothing as it is the addicts responsibility to change and the counselors responsibility to provide them the tools to change. I am asked about my addiction shopping, do I still shop? Yes of course however not to the extreme as I did before, more like everyone else with limits and a purpose. I now sell New and thoughtfully used Intimates on EBay to supplement my income, I left the link so please take a peek very affordable. So I get the fun of shopping and making extra money very fun

  3. Just took a look at the site HEIDI linked… I can’t say for certain that’s it’s her, but she has A LOT of stuff for sell. Like hundreds of intimate appeal (I saw mostly nightgowns & bras thankfully)…

    Looks like she’s still a shopper.

  5. Sadly, Heidi’s mom recently passed away. Her mom seemed very sweet and loving of Heidi. RIP.
