    Hello. My name is Emilee. I am almost 27 years old and I was diagnosed with the combined type of Adhd at age 24. My doctor out me on vyvanse to help me focus. It worked, but I was taken off them to a dirty urine analysis, which showed I was using narcotics. Granted, I never sold or abused my Vyvansew but I do see why he took me off them. Shortly after, I got hooked on pain killers and crack cocaine. The crack functioned like my Vyvanse or so I thought but the problem was I couldn’t get enough or was able to say no to it. Same with the pain pills, I used them to self medicate my anxiety and depression so I would just be numb. I left my environment three days ago and have been clean for two days. It’s not a long time, but for an addict,it’s a positive start. So far, so good. It helps not being around the people who provided me with crack and pills, I am in good spirits, and I’ve been taking my anxiety and depression meds again. I know I can’t do this by muse which is why I have a counselor meeting set up this week. I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions!

    No, other than keep up the good work! It’s hard, and a lot of people don’t realize that some of the strongest people are addicts.

    Twelve Step is not a Country Western Dance, keep breathing through the years eventually you’ll make this a breeze.
