I couldn’t take care of my kids. So I sent them to live with their grandparents. But what really made me think that enough is enough is my dad had a co-worker who’s daughter passed away from a heroin overdose.
For the first time, I understood where someone was coming from when they say that their child would be at peace. And for my dad, he’s like my everything, so for him to say that he would not necessarily be okay with something like that happening to me, but he wouldn’t have to worry about me every day. I could never be okay with my kids something happening to them but I guess if I’m hurting every day and I’m not doing anything with myself and putting everybody through chaos, and I’m in that much pain and how much pain if it was my child. I wouldn’t want them to hurt you more so that was the biggest thing for me to get my shit together.
Wavelengths is different because it’s so willing to help anyone with anything. And they’re accepting of everyone and the love that they have to give in then biggest thing is the value that they give you making you feel like you are worth something, you can help someone else. It isn’t just all about you and you can actually help someone else with what you’ve been through. That was one of the things that Warren made me do with other women and prior to me getting sober helping another woman was completely out of the question. I learned to do that and that’s one of the biggest things that I love about this place that he showed me that I can do it myself. It’s just one person teaching another. What you will find here is a family, a loving, supporting staff. It’s a place where you feel welcome, a place that you know you can go to whenever you’re in need and someone who is always willing to help and always willing to listen.
