Quoting Moody Momma:" I'm Mandy and I have 8 months 24 days clean from heroin. My rock bottom was when my mom who already has ... [snip!] ... I also have bipolar, PTSD and borderline personality disorder. Try working on mental health along with the drug addiction. "
congrats on the almost 9 months sober. My Uncle was on heroin for over 20 years and just could never completely give it up. He went on Methadone and also went to a Dr and got a script for Xanax. Took too much Mathadone and Xanax on April 25th, 2007 and passed away. Heroin is the devil and you should be extremely proud of yourself for the great job you are doing in fighting it.
I also agree with your statement about working on mental health. Most people do use drugs to cover up something else that is going on. My Uncle was molested by his basketball coach in school. Started smoking pot, moved to vicodin and percs and finally to heroin to cover up his pain and shame.
I don't know you, but I am proud of you. Keep it up, Mama!
