    I overdosed on Methamphetamine and Ephedrine once, I died from it. Some very gifted EMT's brought me back to life. Dying is not cool when you have so much **** to do! *13 yrs. sober*

    And Still Going

    Yeah thus far I can't say that life has been boring. I buckled this seatbelt long ago and I'm just holding on for dear life. Ups and downs and loopa loopas galore. I'm a hot mess but it's my mess so gonna keep holding.
