I haven't been around much, and that's for a really important reason. A couple of weeks ago I overdosed on sleeping pills. My habit had caught up with me and I took way too many. I was rushed to the hospital, sent to a psychiatric hospital, and now I have a therapist. I have lost all my trust with my parents and most of my friends. I'm not allowed on the computer, and all the medicine in the house is locked up. My little brother has to babysit me after school. Slowly, but surely, I'm getting a little more freedom.

I just wanted to let those with substance abuse problems that they aren't the only ones. During these past couple of weeks, I have needed so much support, so now I want to share my support with others. If I can get through this, so can others.

It's also good to point out that not only illegal drugs are dangerous. I took regular old Simply Sleep, which is basically Benadryl. I was also hooked on Tylenol PM, Unisom, and various other sleep aids.

I would also like to apologize for not listening to those of this website who acknowledged my problem. I know I couldn't really listen because I was in my old little world, but still... I'm sorry. But... Also thank you for being concerned.

So... Just remember, no one's alone.

Feel free to contact me if they please. My email address is probably around here somewhere.

Thanks, everyone. It feels extremely good to hear someone say that they missed me. It makes me feel important and stuff. Thanks all.
