Seattle trip officially cancelled…

Due to the widespread nervousness over the coronavirus, along with cases confirmed in the city of Seattle, the trip had been cancelled. I’m a little disappointed since I was looking forward to it so very much. Although, it’s safer for everyone to avoid the situation altogether. I am, however, still looking forward to getting my 18th vivitrol injection this month. I cannot believe how fast time flies. I thought it flew when I was homeless and living on the streets. I still can’t believe I spent years out there. Though, I am probably just as amazed at how much time has passed since I’ve gotten high on illicit Street drugs. I, probably, have more reason to get high after my accident than I did prior to, although, it’s been easier for me to stay away from people, places, and things this time around. Now, I’ve had experience with being clean from drugs for many years without being on medicated assisted treatment (MAT). I must admit that I did “self-medicate” by still using marijuana on and off over the years. For me, smoking marijuana does not give me an urge to do anything “harder” as is the case with, say, alcohol, for many people. Although, I can only speak for myself, and must say that every single person is different and different things work in different ways for everyone. For me, it’s a bit of a comfort to know that if I choose to “slip up” and use illicit street drugs, I’d not only be unable to “feel it”, but also would be made to feel sick/ ill from there interaction between the vivitrol and the drugs in my system. So, for me, it’s reduced the urge even further to use. It’s almost like a “security blanket” of sorts, I suppose. Either way, I’m proud of how well I’ve done for as long as I have so far. Here’s keeping my fingers crossed for more time to come ğŸ¤žğŸ¤žğŸ¤ž

Welcome to my crazy world. I'm 37 years old and would love to write a book about my crazy life but have no clue where to start. I'm hoping this may help get me started in the right direction. I hope you enjoy my little life's adventures.
