Adopted and used
I was adopted at a young age. My aadopted family was great except my brothers got me high to entertain themselves and their friends. I was 2, by the age of 7 I drank and smoked all the time. I was given?LSD at 5. 13 coke and shrooms became my diet. I became accustome to the numbness. I've lost 2 kids because of using. Hit by a drunk driver and an abortion on my 21st birthday. This spiraled me out of control. 6 years later my oldest son was born then followed by my youngest. Still I found comfort in using. All I wanted my whole life was my own family and I had it and I continued to run.
Now finally almost a year clean. Nothing will ever let me forget what I have and how much it means to me. I love myself and my boys. Enough to know I have to have faith and believe that I can do this. This is a battle for my life! I refuse to lose this time around. If anyone needs to talk I'm here, anytime anyday. 7577937389
