Struggled with mainly being a functioning alcoholic to reduce my Bipolar Highs. Been through a lot of crazy stuff I would never want to do or go through again. I was in a head on and hurt my brain and neck and face a bit but its way better than what could have been. God has a purpose for me and I believe it to be a mother, a Neo Natal RN and help others off to a good start. I take Suboxone after my pain med dependence got way out of hand for 5 straight years. Treatment is going well, I also take Zyprexa, for auditory hallucinations coupled with Prozac to prevent Bipolar depression and Depakote to keep my feet on the ground also called Bipolar Mania. I have carpal tunnel syndrome, Bursitis in nearly every joint and Bipolar Disorder w/psychotic features due to being given a laced drug at 14. I am the mother of 3 beautiful children and am the loving wife of a patient man. I have been to hell and back because of my disease and b/c I did not have family who was educated enough to enforce medication and therapy for me at a very early age, I've lived as nobody should ever have to again.. I wouldn't change a thing I am getting better with age like a fine bourbon ;) I am a fierce friend, lover and mother. I consider my residents to be MY PEOPLE. God Bless America, the Lord knows we need it...read less
