Her Broken Wing

HER BROKEN WING

Hello world. Glad you stopped by…. but one world of advice… This blog is not for the weak spirit nor is it for the judgmental Hypocrites. Now with that said…Let us begin…

I am:

An Adult

A Professional

A Christian

A wife

A mom

A sister

I am a Nurse

and I am a recovering Drug-addict

When I was a little girl, I had many ambitions and dreams. I worked hard to get to where I am. I never once said, “I want to be a drug-addict when I grow up.”

It started before I was born. I just helped it along. I have heard it said, “You become an addict with the first pill.” Now that doesn’t mean if you take a pill you are an addict, unless you are an addict. Doesn’t make sense, does it? It does if you are the devotee a la drugs.

Looking back, I remember that first pill.

If I could make one difference in the medical community, it would be that Physicians  better screened their patients (family history of abuse) and know the warning signs of their patients. I mean when you are calling in every few weeks for more drugs, something isn’t kosher.

I do take responsibility for my actions.

So let me set that straight. And I am the one paying the price… I lost years with my family. I lost my job. And if I had stayed down that path, I would have lost my life.

I am this broken-winged bird. Resting in the Papa’s hand. Not able to fly away but resting closely in His hand.

It is apparent, I am alive because and only because of the grace of God!

I will be sharing as I go along…the destruction of my life through my journey the past few years. And then, I will reveal the HOPE there is available to us all.

  1. sigh…

    One year ago tomorrow my sister almost died. She was on life support for 3 days…she took over 60 pills…she was on dialysis for 3 weeks…she is now on methodone and abusing benadryl. It all started thru prescriptions…

    She is a Christian…but she is still hurting.

    God LOVES you!!! Hang in there…

    • I’m sorry about your sister… It’s a horrible disease… Someone once told me that addicts will pop tic tacs if you give it to them. (us)

      thanks for your encouragement…

  2. Great job… I look forward to reading more of your journey…

    love ya girl

  3. Look forward to reading more.

  4. I left a comment here days ago, but for some reason it’s not showing up. I said, “I am not weak spirited or judgemental, so I think I will stick around.”

    I have been here every day, reading. In fact I’ve subscribed to your blog so that I can know when you post.

    I too had an addiction. It wasn’t to pain pills, it was to “religious works”.. That might not sound deadly, but trust me, it has been. I’ve lived under the law and tried to put my children under the law. It’s brought pain and suffering with the expectations that no one could fulfill. But praise be to Him, He has brought me out of the darkness into the light. I now live in the beauty of relationship where I see His grace and know His love.

    I’ve written about my journey into grace on my blog. I’d love to have you visit. I love meeting new people!

    Have a blessed day!

  5. I’m nor sure where my comments are going, but I have not seen it appear here. So I will try one more time.

    I am not weak-spirited or judgemental, so I will stick around. I have, in fact, subscribed to your blog so that I can know when you write new posts.

    I too had an addiction. Mine was to “religious works”. It’s a deadly one… a hidden, silent killer.
    It cost me many years of my life as well as the years of my children. I put expectations of the law on them that held them captive to disappointment and inability to please. It’s been one of those things that’s hard to see because it looked “pretty” on the outside. But it was deadly on the inside. The grace of God came for me and has been setting me free. I have written about my journey into grace on my blog. I’d love to have you stop by if you want. I love meeting new people.

    Keep writing your heart. It’s beautiful!

  6. […] be so broken. I just prayed “God if you only…” you’ll have to read at beginning of Her Broken Wing  to find out all that.  I was an angry bitter person. […]
