Addiction came to me quickly. I embraced it wholeheartly. With my sense of overwhelming failure and disappoint that people and the world I lived in was not what I was told growing up. The world was pretty shitty, life was unfair and people untrustworthy.
Heroin solved all those issues for me. It allowed me to walk through life not giving a damn….. Or at least that is what I thought.
When I became pregnant with my wonderful son William all those years ago I still maintained a level of sanity. I knew a choice would have to be made. That boy saved my life and allowed me to grow as a person. To accept what I could not change. To make the best of life as it comes.
