My story is no different than anyone else's. I started out using at a early age. At first I thought it was fun until my life became unmanageable. My whole attitude and demener had changed. I stopped caring about the things and people that I loved. I became a garbage head. I took everything and anything to make me feel different. I chose to take a drug that changed my world and brought me to my knees. I started getting arrested. On Jan 5th of 1999 my whole world changed. I truly believe God had a different plan. I turned over custody of my sons to my family so that I could get help to become a better mother and daughter and friend. That was 14 yrs ago. They told me when I came into recovery Just Keep Coming. I will always be grateful for the path I had to walk through to get where I am today. My sons are back in my life and I thank God everyday for waking me up and giving me a choice each day.
