I am so very proud to be writing this post this morning!
Just over six months ago, our family began a rough journey as my husband admitted to having an opiate addiction. At the time, it was so very disturbing. I did not think that I could deal with him or this addiction — at all.
Since then, a whole lot has changed! I have earned more respect for my husband than I ever could have imagined, and our relationship is better than ever. Adam has proved that he can make good choices, and cope with stressors in more positive ways than drugs/pills. Like every other human in the world, he is still a work in progress, but I can’t express enough how proud I truly am.
With all the news and media attention around Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death, my husband is being appreciated even more. I know that opiate addiction can lead to heroin and possibly an ending like Mr. Hoffman, but it just reminds us again how real it truly is. After seeing lots of media coverage on addiction (and therefor confirming all of the facts I shared with her), my mom called me to tell me how proud she is of us and what he is doing. That is always great to hear. Opiate addiction is very real, and very scary. I am just honored to have a husband that could come out of this in a positive way. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
TODAY MARKS SIX MONTHS CLEAN, and I strongly believe that alone is worth celebrating!! 🙂
I made a small cake for him (that doesn’t seem to be uploading), and I plan on reminding him how far he has come.
Just thought I would share a proud moment with all of you!!
