For myself

Tell us about your (or your loved one's) recovery journey. What has been the most rewarding part?

Because I lost everything and not having my kids with me has opened my eyes and so I need and want to stop so much.

Do you have a message for the Shatterproof community?

Talk to someone, have support, I wish that I had these as I don't and doing this alone ain't easy

I rise up for myself. I'm Heather, this is my story. I'm a recovering addict. My doc was meth. I'm clean now but I lost everything and am homeless now too. Every day I fight urges and temptations and yearn for the strength to remain strong. I'm fighting alone and by myself with no support from anyone. I don't even have a sponsor or a friend that I can call if I need to talk. I'm in Texas but I'm a Colorado native so I'm doing this for me I'm tired of being alone and homeless.
