I at one time was prescribed over 20 pills at one time for anxiety, Bi-Polar disorder, and
Lithium for ?
For every pill I took, I seemed to slip into a sleepy fog. I lost my house I loved, my
boys are men now but are still boys, My oldest son was stabbed last night by a crack addict.
As I stood in a very bright, busy Intensive care ward. I saw a blood soaked blond , puffy
faced man I could hardily recognize. My mind drifted to Saturday night, May 24th 1980.
My wife and I were alone in a hospital room while she was in labor. The nurses
were very busy and checked how she was doing a few times, the nurse knew almost
to the minute when my son would be born.
I have never felt closer to a human being than that night, I never left my wife's side.
We went through her breathing, I let her squeeze my arm, she was strong!
I had to go to the restroom really bad. Every time I started to go to the restroom,
she kept me.
My son was born at 9:17 in the morning. What a feeling it was to see this new human
that I helped bring into the world. I was convinced he would grow up to do great things,
When a baby is born, he or she is perfect. Go look at a row of new babies. Some will
grow up to change the world and some....well.
I told you briefly my story to mention how drug addicts are created. My son's stole
from me. They would pour water in my win bottle so they could drink.
By the time my 2 sons turned 13, they were both addicts. I was gone all the time
or in a fog. I have yet to convince my son's how great running is and they will feel
something no drug offers, "a natural high".
As long as both of my son's are alive, I will not stop until they have a life. Will my
oldest son live? It's too early to tell. know it won't end well for him, I will keep trying.
I should have stopped all these drugs I took sooner. I should have done many things.
The past is something you don't get back.
Pay close attention to your loved ones, deal with your fears about them right away.
Read the link I added again and again This brilliant writer gave all of us here
a wake up call.
It doesn't matter to me so much anymore what the VA says. I will stay away from
being a victim or the "darkness" as long as I can. One pissed
off Liberalis another writer I intend to talk about.
I may not end up in the top "writers list" here, but my salesman life taught me
how to be a pain in the ass to smart people like you folks to get you to read great
Can we change stories like the link and my story? Yes we can, We can focus and
deal with drug problems we find in our life immediately. I waited too long.
We can do things with our problem folks, be a pest in their lives , We can hold them,
love them, and tell them we will NEVER stop trying to make their life better.
I pray none of you have stories like you read here. I pray someday to figure out
how to say I will find another way to deal with drug issues. It's complex, I admit.
But who said we are not able to deal with anything?
Do you mind looking below?
