in the year of 2007:
i went to 4 rehab's
1 detox
ODed on heroin
got busted by the police
kicked my habit
gathered some clean time
broke relationships
discovered my self

All through my teens i was constantly looking for more excitement. Unfortunately in the year of 2007 i had enough to last a life time. For 2008 i wish for some inner fucking solace and peace. I hope to stay out of jail, away from dope, and close to good people and my program.

So a few days a go i was peeing in the Newport Alano Club and just started to cry. I've been in California for almost 4 months now. This is the place where i learned how to live in my own skin and finally figure out what's wrong with me and how to fix it. Two or three years ago the last place on earth i would have expected to be would be in rehab at an AA meeting in Orange County California.

I feel as if i've aged 4 years in the past few months. I feel old. I feel like i've seen way too much pain this year and i've lost my innocence for good. I also feel a freedom and peace that i have never had. It's like the light finally turned on for me. I get it. I know now why i couldn't make friends in high school. I get why going to the mall and being in a car full of painfully normal people makes me want to scream. I get why i feel at home surrounded by dope fiends, crack addicts, husslers, drug dealers, and stoners. But today i'm learning how to live life on life's terms. I'm figuring out the balance i need to have. I'm putting my self back together. I feel such a freedom in waking up everyday and not thinking "how am i going to score today?". Instead I wake up and am greatful for my health and the support of my family. I am greatful that i do not need to pick up today. And i am greatful that there are no bars on my windows.

I'm going to miss California and the healing sunshine. This is the place where i got better. But i need to go to my home now and learn how to live there. I want to rekindle friendships that have been shelved. I want to develop a strong NA and AA community. A little over 70 days ago i was in a bathroom chopping up a pill on my hands and knees sweating and searching the cracks in the floor tiles for a small piece i had dropped. The shower was running so no one could hear me. My heart was racing over the fear of getting caught. Nothing mattered. I had to find that piece. Without it i felt as if i would die. I was so trapped. My own brain had betrayed me.

Today i am so much more free. I have so much more life ahead of me and i dont know what's going to happen. I'm just really excited that i have today to be alive. I'm really excited to come home and finally start my life.

I just got back from Montana. I went to court and it went really well. Three years probation and if i fuck up i could do up to 20 years. So i'll have to jump through a lot of hoops when i come back to Seattle but all in all everything has worked out really well. Shit could have been a lot worse. It can always get worse...

I come home in about 4 weeks. I'll be living and working in the north end. I dont know what i'm going to do about school. I dont think ill go back until next year. I have so much shit to do for my PO and for housing and for my out patient classes. I dont know if i can also handle school.

I can't believe thanksgiving is next week. I went swimming in the ocean yesterday and it was beautiful. I think i could live here in the protective sunny bubble of Orange County. But i need to at least see what itll be like living on my own in Seattle. If i sucks ill just move back down here. But Seattle's my home so i want to try and make that work.

I dont know if i can live my life with out drugs and alcohol but somehow i have to becuase i go to court next week and get booked then start my 3 year probation term.

but on the other hand i am so greatful for the insanity of my life becuase it makes me aware of my humanity. constantly.

It took under two weeks for all the walls my life was bound by to crumble. Every single safetey net broken, every line crossed, every worse casenario reached. I just got out of the hospital and now i have to go to Montana for court. Im looking at 5 years or 3 years intensive probation. I'm also looking at rehab--for a third time. This time in Canada for a few months.  I have never felt so alone in my life before. I dont have a boyfriend or anyone who can possibly understand what im going through.

Okay so the other day i was on erowid reading this mushroom expierences, because im a dork, and i came acrross this one that i wanted to share with you guys just because it was so beautiful. And i can totally understand this expierence. When i've eaten mushrooms ive always been to scared to fully immerse my seld in the other world...just skirting the edges of an another universe. But this person seemed to have fully immerged themselves in this other place so it was really cool to read. just click above.
