I have always knew that I was quite different than others and I didn’t understand why I didn’t fit in. I blamed it on having a rough childhood or bad boyfriends…. There are many things and people that I have blamed my long list of problems on. I spent years making poor choices and claiming I was just a victim of circumstance. Thinking back now, I wasted a lot of time doing this.
Today, I can honestly say I am thankful to not being blind anymore. I do suffer from several mental illnesses and I am also a Drug Addict. I don’t feel ashamed about this anymore. I used to though. I have found the rooms of AA and NA and I have now been in treatment for a little over 3 months. I can’t tell you how life changing this has been for me. I am so grateful for my recovery. I can finally be the person I want to be.
