My name is Heather and I am going out on a limb here and swallowing my pride and asking for help so that my family and I are able to afford drug treatment for me. I am suffering from opioid addiction. It’s a constant everyday battle, love hate relationship, a disease which prevents me from waking up everyday to go to work, not being able to eat until I get this drug in my body, and the list of things could go on and on! This is a terrible feeling and would never wish this lifestyle upon anyone. I use to be what people call “normal” not too long ago. Played AAU basketball for 15years and had college scholarships I through away to find “myself” because until then I didn’t know who I was other then basketball. Well along with “finding myself” I found alcohol & drugs. I’ve had my ups and downs throughout this time of the exploration of finding Heather. If I could take back giving up basketball I truly would because I most likely wouldn’t be sitting here today asking for help from complete strangers, but everything happens for a reason I believe. Life is a journey and this is part of mine! So I am asking for help to pay for an inpatient drug rehab. I unfortunately do not have private insurance nor do my parents have insurance on me anymore and a decent rehab takes money that my family nor I have. I have applied for scholarships & grants, but they are for the future or I am to late for the deadline...throughout this journey I’ve tried to keep a strong head on my shoulders. Not everyone on this drug would reach out like I am trying to do. So hopefully someone reads this and finds it inside to help me out because I would be so very blessed to put this behind me so I am able to focus on my future goals I want to accomplish! Thanks everyone for your time and thanks for reading! Anyone who decides to help I will make you proud! Ha 😁 I’m a driven person to the end who doesn’t give up. Only the strong survive!
