Quoting Sherri + 3:" congrats on the almost 9 months sober. My Uncle was on heroin for over 20 years and just could never ... [snip!] ... and percs and finally to heroin to cover up his pain and shame. I don't know you, but I am proud of you. Keep it up, Mama!"

Thank you! I am sorry to hear about your uncle. My husband is currently on it. I was on it a couple years ago but had a really bad reaction and almost died. I gained 20 lbs of water weight in a week. Through counsoling I have really learned how to cope with situations in a constructive way instead of destructive. It is so much harder then taking the easy way out and using. I did have a rough child hood not because of my parents but other things and then got into an abusive relationship when I was 15. The pot smoking and pill popping soon followed. When I was 18 I might my now husband and didn't know he was a heroin addict. He quit for the first few months of our relationship but then we started using pills together. I didn't help that I had horrible migraines. I don't blame him for me using. I knew what I was getting myself into. But we both have over 8 months and couldn't be happier. I am a better momma to my 3 yr old son and just can't wait to meet our daughter.
