It was brought to my attention yesterday that the link to my email address had disappeared. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to bring it back.

I have restored the address (top right) but you'll have to cut and paste it into your email.


And Chris (from the comments) I didn't receive the email you mention (and I would love to hear from you), so please resend.

, I am sorry I haven't properly introduced myself to you before now. I have just recently found all of you folks who I can so easily relate to. No I don't have a blog. I've thought about it and well most of the time I can't get the words out of my head but I can feel them if that makes sense.

I was in a relationship for a while, married to an addict and did not understand what was going on at all. I was so young, so I joined him. I wanted to see what in the world could make him make some of the dumb ass choices he was making. What a mistake........I stopped on my own a few years later, dilaudid, and other intravenous use drugs, and divorced him. Best thing I ever did for myself. But I still have weak moments where I remember the life style and the highs, and I am tempted a lot when I do think about the feeling of the highs,but I will not let myself go there. I can't......ever again. I know better now, (I think) LOL

I work with adult developmentally and handicapped folks. Such rewarding work, it's like, And I thought I had problems every time I interact with one of these consumers. They have it so much harder than I ever thought about. They help me more than I could ever help them on a daily basis. This job is a gift. It is a non-profit company so the pay is not that great, but hey its a living and I get to feel like I make a difference. Have been there 10 years now, and I live in NC

Once again, I'm sorry, I hadn't let you know who I am and a little about me. I bet it was creepy wondering about my comments and not having a clue as to who I am. I read your blog daily and so hope you can make the right decisions for your life . I know you will, I admire you so much. Once I began reading your blog, I could not stop until I reached the end. You are an amazing woman. I admire you so much. You have faced so much with strength and power. I will continue on your journey with you, I think of you daily and always say a prayer for you. And Thank you for letting me learn from you. Love, Chris......

Welcome, Chris! There is no need to apologize; I didn't mean to call you out. I just interpreted a comment to mean you had sent me a message that hadn't come through. Lurkers are welcome here, as are commenters, even when they are anonymous.
I was very, very touched by your comment about staying up all night to read me. Thanks for all your kind words and feel free to comment or not- to your heart's content.
Thank you, especially, for sharing your own experiences. I want my blog to feel like a real online community and I love the stories that others have to share.
