The Beginning… Continued

How I feel somedays!

This post is going to focus on my steady decline after the most hellish night I have ever had. Read on…

Some night at the beginning of June I woke up drenched with sweat and shaking violently. I had an unavoidable need to vomit, but it hurt my head to just open my eyes.  At this time, I had no idea what was wrong with me, but I felt more horrible than I ever had. It wasn’t just the nausea, my body ached, my head ached and my back pain was excruciating. Soon, I realized I hadn’t taken a percocet since the previous evening and I was experience withdrawal for the first time, first  hand. I remember stumbling to the bathroom and flopping down on my knees, I didn’t have the capacity to contract my T.A.’s in order to protect my spine and get down properly. I hung my head over the toilet and vomited through my tears.

Enough of that for now, I would like to introduce you to the last couple of years of my life and in turn parts of me.

To set the stage, I went to college for two years right out of high school, and then to university for another three years full-time and another two years as a part-time student. So I was 23 and looking for a job, any job, so that I could pay off my massive school loans, or at least start behaving like a responsible adult with financial goals instead of a poor student. So I took a job as a manager of a pharmacy, thinking I would spend approximately two years here to help finance my boyfriends Master’s Degree. This was in June 2009.
