I was diagnosed 10 years ago with Bipolar 1 disorder (rapid cycler) and over time was re diagnosed with Bipolar 1 disorder with paranoid schizophrenic tendencies which landed me on the mental wing of the local hospital on a 72 hour hold. They got my meds regulated and I did great for several years except having no ability at all to show any kind of emotional (side effect of meds) Then one day my husband got laid off work and soon lost the insurance plan. I call that period of my life.....reality. I cold turkied 7 meds including antiphychotics, mood stabilizers, high blood pressure and diabetes, along with pain meds. I spent a month wishing I was dead then I started reading about music therapy. The song Somewhere Over The Rainbow got me through some pretty bad times. So did my ever growing weed consumption. I dont know how it works for others but one drug lead to another and now I currently use methamphetamine. Please keep the negative comments to yourself. I already know the negative effects, and i already think low enough of myself for being addicted to this drug. I was on it for 5 months in 2014 and when it finally sunk in that I was killing myself slowly I got scared...I tried quitting and couldn't so I packed myself and kids up and hauled ass 870 miles away. Now I had no choice. I had no connections, hardly any money and completely out of my stash. I stayed clean and sober for 10 months. Then one day I got a call from family back home. Grandma was dying and they needed me home now. 3 days later I was at her bedside. Coming home I knew would be difficult but I thought I was strong enough. I wasn't. Within 2 days of my homecoming I was back on meth. That was 6 months ago. I want to quit. Its not a matter of it being illegal or dangerous to my health, I'm not broke anymore, frankly Im well off since returning to the life style. Im one of the top dealers in a small country town...a town that has become a cesspool of addiction. Everyone I know either uses, sells it, makes it, just quit it, misses it, burying someone that was on it, in jail for it, out on bond or dying from it...Its on every street corner. I want to quit. I want my friends to quit. I don't know how. I cant check myself in rehab because I do have 3 children that would have no where to go. Again before ppl get negative there is literally nothing u can say about the fact that I'm a meth head with kids that I already haven't said to myself. I know my kids deserve someone better. Even clean and sober I am not the mom I should be because of my psychotic disorders but I do love them with everything I have. They are the only reason I haven't taken the easy way out. I want to be around for their first bf/gf, graduation, weddings and grandchildren. I wont be if I don't quit now. So plz if anyone knows how I can quit while off meds preferably without a psychotic episode, I am all ears. I do plan on rejoining my NA group and working the steps again but that only helps a person stay clean. I need to know how to make that first step.
