It’s easy to judge a mother who is an addict.
Debbie’s Story from“Facing Addiction in Knox County, Kentucky: It’s Our Move” is this week’s featured story. Debbie reminds us to take a step back to empathize with a mother struggling with addiction. And more than that she reminds us that…
Our love will make a greater impact than our anger.
Debbie’s story is a story of addiction, loss of a child, loss of faith, and the struggle to come back from a dark place where only pills could dull the pain. Here’s how her story begins:
No one wakes up and says, “Today I think I will be an addict.” I didn’t choose to be an addict. Sometimes, it feels like it chose me. I have been around people who use pills my whole life. I’ve lived all the fears that come with growing up in that type of world. Probably the hardest for me was never learning how to cope with pain, suffering, loss and just life without the use of pills.
