I grew up in a very dysfunctional family. My mom was hooked on prescription drugs and was abusive to me & my sister. I was too afraid to run away so I started using drugs at the age of 12/13 years old. By the time I was 18 years old I was hooked on heroin, and cocaine, and I was using it intravenously.
I turned my 1st trick to get the money for my drugs. It was disgusting! He was old, really old, and he smelled!
I got sick with serum hepatitis and my father took me back home, where I did not want to be.
As soon as I felt better, I started calling military recruiters — I was ready to do anything to get out of that house.
I stopped using drugs. I drank a lot…
I served 2 years, got married and got out. My marriage failed, and my husband left with my son.
Then I lost my job… then I lost my home. I was homeless for 3 ½ years — I had lost everything.
Prostitution, I thought, was the only option. I went to jail 15 times, was raped 12 time and almost lost my soul.
God allows U-turns and now I have been clean & sober for 25 years – I am blessed.
