I use to do anything and everything... I'd do whatever it took to get any kind of high, I don't particularly like people, so I'd only associate with people who also used or was providing me with whatever they had. I got to the point where I had to use to do basically anything especially socialize, I tried to quit drugs several times but failed. I even moved into my cousins to try and get her clean along with me, in doing so though I ended up using stuff and also ways I always said I'd NEVER do.

I moved out of my cousins to get clean again, one month after I moved out though she ODED and died ... then 2 months after that I finally had my life together was even going to college.

Then, on my way home from work to let my dog out, I was walking across the street in a cross walk when I was hit by a minivan. I ended up with a severe brain injury and a very broken right arm...

Because of the fact that I no longer know what using will do to my brain or me, I have been clean for almost 3 years.

My wish now is that people who are hurting either because of drugs or just life and are using to deal with it, quit using please! Don't have to learn the hard way like I did, by a life threatening injury or even worse because of death.

Please learn from my mistakes and life learned lessons that I would not wish had happened to me on my worst enemy. Although I have family members who hate me because I lived and they lost their family member to drugs I still wouldn't wish what happened to me on them. Please appreciate your life no matter how rough it can be. Just realize it can be worse but you don't want that; my heart goes out to anyone who needs it.
