I Used To Use Meth.

I used to use methamphetamine. Now I work in drug treatment. Feel free to ask away. If I don't know the answer, one of my co-workers will.

Three years ago in March was the last time I got high on Meth. My son was taken from me December 18, 2006. I fought CPS for 2 years, jumping through every imaginable hoop you can think of. I did UA testing 4 times a week for 2 years, I did out-patient drug treatment for 2 years. Parenting classes, therapy, anger management... you name it, I did it. I got my son back and my CPS case was closed December 18th, 2008. One year later, I work in the same treatment center I was forced to go to almost every day for 2 years. I am so grateful that I was forced to do what I didn't think I was ever going to be able to do. I found the help where I least expected it. And the people that I believed were against me are now my colleagues.

Franksnightmare: Oh, okay, I understand.<br />

NoWhereToGoButUp: Yes, I can't even imagine. How long ago was that?

The day CPS came to my house and took my 4 month old son from me. That was one of the hardest days of my life.<br />

About the previous comment, He obviously needs help...Unfortunately you can not help anyone unless they want help. For people like him, all we can do is think good thoughts and hope that some day he gets it.

Sorry I was in one of those moods.

That was a very...uncalled for comment. When did you realize you needed to stop?
