Many years ago I was down, depressed, alone and generally isolating myself from the world. I had lost a child, got a divorce, I believed that I was not good enough, never got the things that I needed in life, was physically unwell, working in a profession that was not my passion, and overall could not seem to find my way out of the dark hole of depression I found myself in.
I went to a Doctor to get some help climbing out of this hole I was in and he prescribed pills to help me out. I found some freedom and began to climb out and up, however, in this process I became addicted to prescription drugs. Finally, after looking after my personal needs in securing these drugs through two or three different doctors I encountered a new and very smart young doctor who freed me from my “prescription drug” addiction. I went to his office to get my prescription and he sat me down asked for the bottle of pills I had with me, looked directly at me and calmly said NO! He then took my pills, flushed them down the toilet that was adjoining his office and said “you are an addict so you might just as well go out, drink, become an alcoholic or street drug junkie, hit the gutter, because I am not giving you another pill, nor will any other doctors in this town.
At that time in my life I was hiding behind a very professional looking exterior and I was hit with a suggestion that I certainly did not want to become a part of me. “To become a street person did not fit with who I was trying to be on the outside”!
I then began to believe in myself, quit the pills, and started to take one little step forward at a time. The next thing I knew, I was moving ahead in life with a newly chosen profession and I continue to move ahead today, without ever looking back or wanting to go back to where I came from.
I learned that there is a sure way to get the help that you need and that is to BELIEVE in yourself!
Do you believe in you?
Peace, love, light and blessings
