Four years ago, if someone would have told me that I would become addicted to narcotics, I would have laughed at them.
My story is a story of joy, despair, hope and healing…
I had been an RN for 14 years, mostly in the ICU. Exposed to narcotics on a daily basis, never once did I have an issue. I had a wonderful life. A loving husband, kids and family. A strong church family. My life was full of joy. I loved my job, my career, my family, my entire life. Then, my world got turned upside down.
My mom and I were not only mother and daughter, but also best friends. We either talked or saw each other daily. We had so many of the same interests and she was an all around wonderful woman. She also became an awesome grandma after I had my two boys.
