What it was like?
I was going through so much I wanted to feel numb. Opiates consumed me and my daily life to where it ran me. I couldn't function with out snorting 3-400 milligrams of OxyContin a day. I was so lost I thought I'd never get back and ultimately I thought I would probably die.
I lost 2 marriages in 6 years at 33 years old and I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I tried methadone and suboxone treatments and failed. I finally got into a intensive outpatient and got on a quest to find out why I was using and deal with it.
What it is like now?
The last 5 and a half years have been full of ups and downs but it has paid off big time!!! On the verge of losing everything and my business it is now thriving and my life is experiencing a peace I have never had as well as I love my life!! Never felt better! There is no high that I have ever experienced that comes close to the joy I experience on a daily basis!
