‘I had a C-section. What comes with a major surgery? Pain meds do. The day after we came home, I went for a pain pill. They were gone. ALL OF THEM!’: Woman slides into deeper addiction at the hands of her boyfriend

“My ex-boyfriend walked back into my life. He didn’t look the same though. His big, strong build had dwindled down to a scrawny man. I could tell something was wrong. I went for it anyway. That turned out to be a decision I will not soon forget. It didn’t take long for me to become pregnant, with not one but TWO babies.”

‘I picked up a needle and got loaded before I got married. I thought I could do it once. I was wrong.’: Man thought he ‘deserved a treat’ on his wedding day, wife has miscarriage while he waits for treatment

“After 5 days of being in detox, I called my wife. I told her how excited I was to be clean and live a good life with her. After I was done talking, she told me she didn’t want to see me again, and I wasn’t allowed to see her daughter again, and hung up. I was so hurt.”

“I had an addiction to peeing on sticks. It’s a real thing. My husband made me pee on the test that says ‘pregnant’ or ‘not pregnant.’ HE didn’t believe the lines. Sure enough, our bingo babies were conceived! What came next was unexpected and scary.

I kept thinking, ‘How did I go through all this and not be able to see my babies grow up?’”
