First Posting

Hi. I'm starting a blog for 2 reasons. First, I have been chatting with a bunch of great people thru the S.L.O.B. on Mercyme's website. I've never really done anything like it before and am enjoying it immensely. Second, I am a recovering addict. I have had 3 back surgeries. They were successful to a point. Some of the fragments did permanent nerve damage, along with massive amounts of scar tissue wrapping itself around nerves. I stole from my employer to supplement the pain meds I got from my pain management doctor. It didn't end well. I went thru treatment 16 months ago & have renewed my relationship with God. I would not be the person I am today, if not for treatment, and continued recovery. Working with a sponsor, attending meetings, and giving back thru service work. I do not take pain meds today, except acetaminophen. It is harder some days than others, but you know what? I am a better person today. I am a blessed child of God and am so thankful for that.
