About Me: Female, 61, stayner, ON, member since Aug 2013
I'm a 54 yr. old woman who lives in Ontario, Canada. I've been addicted to a few things, this time around it's opiates. I'm a non-practising alcoholic. I was addicted to uppers for years as a young adult, along with the alcohol. When I got off the alcohol it was on t
[More]o tranquillizers -- benzo's. That lasted 13 yrs. I just thank God I'm older and wasn't exposed to meth, oxy's, I fear I would be dead right now if I was. I am a painter and drugs take away my energy and creativity. Soooo sick of it.
I love to create, build, paint, sculpt, write, exercise, animals, nature, helping people.

Hey!!!! ♥...thanks for the note. Doing the best we can, I guess. R's got some kind of mysterious cyst(?) under the skin below his eye, it's very weird. Making an appt with his pcp today. Which will only lead to an appt with a specialist since pcp's rarely do anything other than REFER you somewhere else! This note is also reminding me, I need to take him in for the bloodwork his pcp gave him paperwork for, idk, beginning of the yr maybe. Requires 'fasting' which means we might be able to make an 8am appt. The place isn't far. I've been meaning to write a journal, there's been so much going on. He went to Costco yest; came home w/o his wallet. I called immediately to find an ANGEL had turned it into lost and found. D.L., $ and cc's still there. Whew! Hope you're well, J. xoxo
