The wrong road
I had a great life ahead of me and was on the right path as a teenager. I was popular in school and was a cheerleader and gymnast with a great love for life. When I found out I was pregnant I still made the best of things, stayed in school, and made a life. There was always the pain there underlying but I could handle it until the father of my child died and then it hit me. I felt I had lost twice in life and it was overwhelming. Rather than get help I chose to drown myself in drugs. I had experience with drugs since I was 16 yrs old but now I found myself in an unending party. I woke up and found myself getting older with no life at all. Even with the obstacles I faced in life I always had a choice and could always make it better and that's just what i intended to do! After using many different kinds of drugs and becoming addicted to pain pills I finally decided I was not going to waste another day! I reached out for help and have now been clean for many years. It can be done and all hope is not lost! I am currently enrolled in school in hopes to become a nurse practitioner specializing in the addiction field to help others who struggle just as I did.
