A big part of my story is that two months before I got sober, my father died unexpectedly from a heart attack— so I had two months of being the most miserable I had ever been. I was hopeless, but I knew I didn’t want to die. For the first time, I thought, “I want to live and honor who my father raised me to be.” My heart today is absolutely full. I am happier than I’ve ever been and it blows me away every day. It’s almost like I’m dreaming sometimes: the relationship with my mother is now everything I wanted it to be; and she trusts me finally, which is huge. And for me to be able to be there for her and help her and perhaps make her day a little easier is the best gift I’ve got in recovery.
[The staff at FHE Health] tried to help like any family would. My parents tried to help me, but I definitely broke their hearts and I didn’t show up for them when I was supposed to. It’s hard to think about because all they wanted was for me to do well. I think they were sad but relieved when I went to FHE Health. They knew where I was, and that I was in good hands … even though I didn’t know what to expect or what I was doing with my life, I felt safe at FHE Health, and I think that’s one of the best things you can get from coming to a place like this. It did feel like home. It did feel safe, and I felt comfortable. I couldn’t leave. I stuck around. I took their suggestions to live in a sober-living facility after I discharged from here, and I stayed as close as possible.
There were times I wanted to die. There were times I would write in my journal, screaming down the whole page, “I know I’m an addict; I don’t want to live this way anymore.” I knew I had a problem. I’ve been sober now for four-and-a-half years. Being a mother now— it’s incredible. FHE Health was the only treatment facility I went to. It was the first and only time I’ve tried to get sober. And I can’t see my life any other way.
