I’ve had a lot of people trust me over the years with their stories: the transgendered neuro-biologist who felt Larry Summers sexist views were harmful to women in science; the Iowa woman who described how her compulsive spending was hurting her marriage; the parents who adopted kids from Russia and were overwhelmed by the demands of having children with special needs and admitted they’ve thought about giving up on the adoption. This week we aired a piece on GMA about Diana, a woman who’s "secret confession" is that she drinks alone. Too much. Too often. She bared ugly truths about herself. A bottle of wine a night. Shaky hands in the morning. Blackouts. She started the story in silhouette talking about her deepest darkest secrets. GMA introduced her to William Cope Moyers, of Hazelden, the addiction treatment center. William is also the author of “Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption.” He’s 15 years into recovery. Alcohol. Crack. Despair. He told me the story of how his father, legendary journalist Bill Moyers (whom I’ve worked for over the years at his show NOW), pulled him out of a crack house and said "I hate you". The venom with which William recounted those words sent a chill through my spine. William paused as if remembering the moment and then continued "I said. I hate me too". William has the demeanor of a preacher or a professor or an engineer. Diana and my producer Liz Sintay and I were so moved and inspired by William as we all ate an elegant buffet lunch in a Chicago hotel. Diana was worried about her job, her loved ones, but before we finished shooting the story Diana summoned up the courage to show her face on camera. She wanted to let her confession into the full light of day. William said you’re only as sick as your secrets. I feel so honored to be able to tell Diana’s story for GMA.
