Self medicated.

I started using drugs At age 14, I was a loner , drugs led me to friends but ultimately to rehab jail and complete rock bottom. I am an addict. I was clean from drugs for four years after the birth of my first son, then pregnant with my second son I was given pain medication. I thought I was strong enough to take them. I was wrong. It sent me off on a two year relapse. I now know I can't ever take opiates... Ever. Just once turns into amillion pills and a million problems.
