The devil had entered my veins

It all started at age 10 normal young girl good in school amazing cheerleader fun sleepover with friends all the normal things young girls did until one night me and my best friend went ice skating and when we came home that night I thought it be a normal sleep over little did I know my life was going to do a 360 that night my father raped my best friend and from that day it was all down hill from there from the age 10 to 13 I was smoking weed and when I was 13 I had met what I thought was the love of my life I was 13 he was 16 it started off smoking weed drinking then turned into taking pain pills to try to numb all the pain it started off a couple a day to 20 + a day to if I didn't at least have ten percs by noon I was sick me and my boyfriend stayed together for 8 years and the last year of it introduced me to the devil heroin first the first shot my life went to hell I sold everything neglected my son for drugs hurt my family after a couple months of doing it I was 20 and I had a stroke and many seizures but I still kept going until the day one day as I did every single day many times a day drove down to the city to get my drugs n I finally got pulled over and got arrested was sent to court and now am in a outpatient rehab drug court the system controls my life and it honestly saved my life this is honestly only 2% of my story there's so much more I can say but have an amazing three yr old trying to get at my phone my point of writing the sum of this is to help people this battle is not easy but it is so worth it I'm 21 yrs old n cannot even feel left side of my body please get help its an amazing feeling to wake up every morning and be able to get out of bed n not have to worry about having drugs to not be sick I live for my sobriety now god grant me the serenity to accepttge things I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the diffrence
