What it was like?
I had a compulsive addiction behavior called sexual addiction. It was destroying my life both mentally and physically. It harmed my relationships and friendships with others. I was addicted since 13 years old.
I was falling apart eventually and decided to get some help. Checked myself into a mental health center and got some help. Struggled with some mental disorders also and I felt like people were going to get me due to my problem. Eventually I asked Jesus Christ to be the center of my life and take over in the hospital I was in called Oakview. Then after I found out my sister passed away when I got out and I rechecked in Lutheran West Cleveland Clinic where they provided the correct medication. My life is finally turning around since i said that prayer of redemption and forgiveness.
What it is like now?
Currently I am living with my Grandmother in Parma,OH and attending a twelve step meeting out in Avon Lake at Hope Christian Church. Also I have a faith based counselor and I am part of a Young Adult Group , and went back to my home church in North Olmsted. Studying liberal arts and religious studies at Cuyahoga Community College.
