About Me
I just turned 40 and I am a mother of one child, he will be 18 in Jan. I am in school right now studying for my bachelor's degree with an emphasis in substance abuse. I have had a lot of people in my life addicted to either alcohol or drugs and I would give anything in the world if I could've helped them. I was also a weekend alcoholic, myself but I no longer drink and since then I have found that, the alcohol was making me depressed. It has been a long and tiring road dealing with my bad habits and the people in my life with the addictive type of behavior. However, I feel that I am here to help people and that is what I am going to do, once I have my degree. I am turning a negative into a positive, and this is going to be the best thing I have ever done in my life. I am looking forward to using my skills to help addicts realize that there is a better life without getting high. It's amazing how much better you feel once you have all of that poison out of your body.

Favorite Word:

serenity
This word explains everything that I need to feel. I am now on the search for finding whatever it is to feel complete serenity. I have been through hell and back and I feel that it is my turn to feel completely free of inner turmoil. I am on my way!

Least Favorite Word:

money
Don't get me wrong, I love the positive side of money but I don't like it when there is not enough of it and when people have too much of it. I don't like that people worship this stuff. People all over get killed for it. Money makes people change from who they really are. Everyone that has millions of dollars should give some to the poor, homeless, and to the scientists that are trying to find cures for diseases. They should share a little so that some people don't have to live in misery.
