What it was like?
A revolving door of complete misery, hopelessness mixed with numbing all my emotions with any form substance.
Two suicide attempts, countless rehabs and mental faculties along with several jail trips and let’s not forget losing several loved ones and pushing any and everyone away around me I finally started to see the big picture and took it a day at a time learned from my mistakes and tried to be better than the person I was the day before
What it is like now?
Life still has its ups and downs but my life is no longer controlled by any substance. I have my strength, will power,a life I can be proud of. I have all my children in my life a few selects friends who I would give the shirt off my back for. Loving parents that still stand by my side and an absolutely beautiful significant other who has stood by my side to this day! Life is such a blessing and I count them each and every day, my eyes are truly opened to how beautiful life can be. So I’m living it to the best of my abilities each and everyday!
