It’s not every day that you’ll find someone who refers to Jackson “Jax” Teller (Charlie Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy) as Dr. Charlie Hunnam, or that you’ll encounter a person who credits Sons of Anarchy for getting them through some really tough times. Usually, Sons of Anarchy found us wanting a Xanax, not finding positive perspectives on life – which don’t get me wrong, is what we loved about it.

We’ve come across a blogger named Lauren Sarner, the incredibly strong lady who referenced Dr. Charlie Hunnam, and she has posted her story on facing intense surgery, and how she learned to set her worrying aside and love television. She’s memoiring her experience through her blog, and how the tale of SAMCRO saw her through her tribulations. In just a small excerpt, she says,

“In my copious alone time, I got sucked into two shows no one I knew watched: Sons of Anarchy (biker Hamlet) and Black Sails (pirate Deadwood). While most people my age spent weekends at parties, Saturday nights saw me spending quality time with Charles Vane and James Flint while they snarled at each other. When Charlie Hunnam, in the leather kutte and biker boots of Jax Teller, pondered his late father’s legacy, I pondered it too.”

Read the full post here, and tell us in the comments if Sons of Anarchy was your escape too. What did it help you work through? What did it distract you from in your life that you needed distraction from? Are there any words of encouragement that you have to offer Lauren on her road to recovery?

For Lauren, we’ve added this video, as encouragement and support for what she’s been through. “We all Fall Down”, by One Republic. Good luck on your road to recovery, Lauren!

Last but not least, we discovered a blogger who holds Sons of Anarchy responsible for her recovery. […]
