Mile stone of sorts

Postby xcagedsilhouttex » Mon Nov 12, 2018 8:03 pm

Today I am 8 months clean from my DOC. Today also marks the day that I overdosed which led to being sectioned in a lock down facility.

Someone in my fellowship who was in the same lock down facility mentioned how different I am today to what I was. I initially rejected what he said because I still feel like the same POS that I was when I was locked in. Looking back though, I am currently able to do things that I never thought I would be capable of.

I am moving on towards step four, the step that was the very reason I felt that a twelve step programme was futile because I felt that I had no capacity to want to make amends for my actions. Today I feel fully capable of working towards making my amends.

I have come a long way from the restrained girl who was institutionalised.

But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth. It's just a matter of how you look at it, that's all

Well deserved Congratulations on your milestone ! You have indeed come a long way and you should be proud of that . You are saving your own life - that takes strength and courage . Even in those moments when we don't feel like we have either of those things , they are there within us .

I discovered many things about myself on my recovery journey , some good and some that needed fixing . My life isn't always easy now but it's far better than it was with an addiction on top of everything else . We all deserve to have a good and decent life .


Thank you for sharing your story with us . May it inspire hope in those who come here seeking it .
