What it was like?
I was lost in a huge mess of drugs. I didn't care who you were or what you had. If I could put it in a needle I was doing it. I left my daughter to be raised my family because I was too busy chasing the bag. I wanted to die.
After a while I was just so burnt out on everything I was doing. I had wasted my whole young adult life and I didn't want to do it anymore. I was pregnant again for the 3rd time in 2 years and I wanted to have that baby. So I put myself into residential treatment and was there for 9 months. I started to see my daughter on a regular basis and that felt so good. I found myself in treatment.
What it is like now?
My life is amazing. I get to be there for my children today. I get to go to work and pay my bills on time. I get to be trusted by others. I get to be the mom, daughter, sister and friend that can be related on.
