I recently went through a break up that has been really hard on me. Now she is thinking about working things out, but she says she needs some space to think for a while.

I could really use some advice here, I hate being in limbo here, not knowing if she'll think and reject me again, or if she'll actually give me another chance. I know I screwed up and drove her away, and I'm trying so hard to work on the issues I need to (substance abuse, insecurity). I feel like I want to tell her everything that is going on, but I know I should give her some space. Any suggestions anyone? I'm at a total loss here.
