In my early twenties I began using other types of drugs. It was never a social event for me, it was always a way for me to change the way I felt about myself and to mask the depression and loneliness I felt.
By my mid twenties I had spent some time in dangerous situations and abusive relationships, I never thought I deserved anything better in my life. My life went down hill quickly I lost jobs and my family didn�t want anything to do with me. I lied and stole from all the people who loved me.
I became a parent and knew my life needed to change, after countless attempts on my own I ended up in the hospital for the second time in a few months from an overdose. I was directed toward Mirikai and have not looked back. I was treated for my mental health issues and my social anxiety and I have begun to learn to like myself and understand that I am worth more than I thought. Mirikai, through constant care and compassion has helped me rebuild my life and I am now in the half way system on the road to recovery. With the support and counseling and medical services that have been offered to me I am now a responsible parent and a functioning member of society.
