I have a friend who just went through a hard time in her life and I want to tell you all a little bit about it!
For the past 2 months she has had a really hard time. It has just been one thing after another! She was making one bad choice after another. She didn't know who she was or who she wanted to be. She made most of the mistakes you could make at age 18, or even any other age. She told me it was like her world was going places she didn't even want to go. There was so much she had done just because she could. That is no way to live! Everything you do comes with consequences, but did she know that? I think not! She kept doing them till she hit rock bottom.
You want to know what her rock bottom was? It was taking too many pills. She had to go to the ER to drink charcoal so she could get sick and get them out of her body. I know, this is a hard thing to talk about; but it happens a lot these days. She said when she went to the ER that all she wanted to do was get out. Then she went up to the psych unit. She was alone and scared. The only thing she wanted was to get better and get out! Then she started to go to the groups and classes and started to open up about what had been going on in her life. She started talking about why she had taken the pills. She started to know that she needed help and she was open to anything and everything they would try. Then she didn't just think about when can I go; she thought about how can I do better!
She helped her self and got on some good medication and got help. She talked everything out. She got input from doctors and her new friends. She said it was great that she made new friends in there because they get what its like to be in a bad place. So she just wanted to thank god for everything that happen to her. She wouldn't be the woman she is today without what happened to her. She went there for the better! She said she will be on the right road now. She got the help she needed! And now she will just take it day by day and she will be alright one day soon!
