Two or so years ago I began lurking here as I knew I had a problem and was not sure how to fix it. My personal and work life had become unmanageable. I did not recognize myself anymore. I was sinking further and further into addiction and was scared. How did I get here and why?? I read and researched and finally decided I needed to admit to my addiction and ask for help. Boy, did I get it!
I jumped into detox and for awhile did well. I relapsed. I disappeared for a bit from this forum and hid from myself.
I still lurked and hoped to gather myself again to face detox yet one more time!
I posted and again received help and tough love and support.
I finally listened! I told my hubby, I told my daughter, I told my son and finally I told my doctor my secret!
It was the hardest thing I have ever done and also the one thing that saved me from myself.
One year ago I admitted I needed help.
I want to thank everyone here who stepped up to the plate and listened to me as I again went through withdrawals.
What am I today?? I am a mother, a wife, and a survivor.
