    Haven't been here since January. Finally kicked my painkiller addiction to the curb, but of course I struggle with keeping the addiction at bay day after day. Oddly I wasn't horribly insulted by two family members and made homeless for a week until after I kicked the addiction. My aunt used to be one of the dealers of mine - yeah, I know it's fucked up - and she can't stand that I'm clean. So she's harassing me at work, giving me shit, etc.

    I've turned to alcohol to keep my mind off things, which I know isn't the brightest idea. I go to therapy now, but even though I manage to pay all my bills now, and finance the shitty camper of my brother's I live in by paying rent/utilities etc., I'm still depressed. I really don't feel like I accomplished anything by kicking my painkiller habit, even though I know I have - paying bills, for instance, which I've never managed to do because I was addicted to painkillers for five years and I'm only 20 now - but yeah. I'm back now. Cause I'm close to losing it.

    ETA: Oh, and I'm struggling with bulimia issues, yay! That, on top of the alcohol, has had my blood sugar levels as low as 60 (diabetes runs in my family, so I checked my blood sugar via a family member, because I kept near-fainting at work.) Basically I am slowly killing myself. And I'm okay with it. So that's why I'm here.

    Hello Happyville, you are doing good getting by the painkiller habit.. you can do this so now maybe time to work on the booze habit......

    AA or some visits to a professional to help you with this. my former habits of these two was that i was running away from some stuff and people and tried to stone and drown thoughts of them and that only way i knew how then..

    Happy, you are young and got time to get control and try to move on in a good direction from adn with this all.. like i said , maybe some help would be a good idea.. tc, Jim

    Welcome back Kimberly!! It's not easy kicking everything at once.. The pain killers should be out of your syatem by now..Next you should work on your bolimia.. That will kill you..You have to eat.. Why don't you see your family doctor and tell him this.. He should be able to put you on a diet that your stomach can keep down..Once you take care of that then you can tackle the alcohol..I was a drug addict and alcoholic for over 30 years and kicked them both cold turkey..I miss them but realize my life was fucked up..Stay with us and let us help support you..
