Well as the summer goes so does this heat go up here in South Florida, The other night I thought I would call one of my friends from out at the Pike. She just went through open heart surgery. She is out-of-state now and in a hospital recovering.
You might have heard me bring her up before I call her Long Hair! She is also a friend of Angel Face, and also an addict. Her story is one of what many is with her addiction. You see, she has bad back problems and was per-scripted the very same pills that she got addicted too!
She was thrown off of them so the doctor would not be liable for anything and had to turn towards the street for her medication. One thing as with many young ladies under this curse is that she found herself homeless sleeping in a tent with her then boyfriend and turned towards prostitution to pay for her medication that she needed for her pain.
This is what she always told me anyway, after knowing her for a while I personally witness some of the pain and trails that she went and still goes through. Her journey has not been easy at all and she does have my prayers and support when ever I can give it.
So she did answer the phone for I have been waiting for her to heal a little to talk to her, her voice was soft and weak but she still wanted to talk to me and clue me in on want was going on. She shared with me that she went through detox and does not want any more to do with them damn pills anymore!
This made me very happy and I told her that I was happy and proud that she was thinking like this and that there is always a reason for the season. She also shared with me, “Robert I need to do something about managing my pain and need to find a way to get off the Opioid s!” Will I brought up about seeing Angel Face again and I should have stayed on her instead because before you know it she had to go because a nurse came in the room and she was also very tiered.
So there is a time for change with this addiction and it is a lie and as anyone finds the courage, and do something about it, you will stay stuck in that cycle! So what is it my friend? Are you to stay stuck with all the lies and pain, or are you to be set free as my friend Long Hair?
You can put your comments up above and what ever you decide, peace and happiness in your journey 🙂
