What it was like?
It was very scary and only and depressing and I felt so hopeless I just wanted to die I hated myself
March 8 of 2017 I lost my daughter to Children's Division and June 21st I put myself into residential treatment of 2017 and I got clean off of Meth I've been clean off of it for over a year I relapsed almost 3 months ago on K2 and immediately put myself back into residential but before I relaxed I had completed a transitional living place called Catherines place and now I live in amethyst place which is another Transitional Living but I have my own two bedroom apartment and my daughter should be home at the end of the month my permanency hearing is the 29th and my case worker said he sees no reason why I can't have my daughter back home for the trial home placement it's been a long year but I finally found who I am
What it is like now?
I have so much love for myself and for everyone around me I have so much support I still go to outpatient drug treatment at ReDiscover and live at amethyst place I've been here since April and without all of these places and people I would not be where I am today I have my daughter every weekend and I call her everyday that she's not with me and very soon she will be home like I said it should be at the end of the month and without my higher power I would not be where I am today because today I have full faith in him because my higher power is God! And without the na fellowship I would also not be where I am today and without my sponsor and working the steps I would not be who I am or where I'm at today! Life is good and I will be getting my GED and then going to college! I love recovery it works if you work it keep coming back
