im 4 months clean and can't believe what life has to offer. I see things clearly, i smile, i enjoy food, i laugh, i cry, you name it i now feel it. I finally reclaimed my life back and my family and friends have Dana back. I now know that this is a lifetime battle with the good and the bad and really thats what life is all about the up's and down's. I am still learning each and everyday how to deal with the bumps in the road and understand the importance of aftercare. Depression has kicked in for me and i am reaching out and dealing with it, i know this shall pass and that there are brighter days ahead. I know this is the only way to live to really live life to the fullest and i am enjoying it. When life throws me a curveball my first reaction, take a pill, but now i still get that evil thought going through my head but i just say, no way in he!! i am going to deal with it head on! I know in time it will continue to get easier but it is a lifetime disease that i do honestly deal with. Sometimes i still have to say to myself, just for today.
I want to thank all my medhelp friends from the bottom of my heart for standing by me in my darkest hours and never giving up on me, i was a disaster for the last 2 years or so and it was all of you that helped me get to where i am today, and I thank God for this site and for all of you.
