This is me five years ago being booked into Lee County jail and me today. I had given up and no matter what I did I couldn’t stop using! I had a beautiful family and home. As much as I loved them I still could not stop! By the time I made it to jail this time my addiction was out of control and I was dying!
I had been around the rooms but only to satisfy my probation. But if I could remember anything they told me it was “let go and let God”. So I did! I surrendered and gave up trying to do it alone. I went through some of the worst withdraws one could go through! Even had to be admitted to the hospital for 10 days due to seizures.
This was not easy but I prayed and with the help of the program I got better! Today I am the mother and woman I always wanted to be but just couldn’t! I have three beautiful girls 16, 9 and 8 months. It is still beyond me that I got to live when I was so sure I would die!
So anyone that feels there is no way out I promise you there is! Don’t never hesitate to reach out and ask for help! I am a miracle and I am here because I stopped trying to do this on my own and let people who have been where I was show me the way. God bless 🙂
