Not Afraid of Tomorrow

What a wonderful holiday. My daughter was really happy. The laughter and giggling between her and her younger sister brought back so many precious memories. Her younger sister has always worshipped the ground she walked on. Unfortunately, on occasion, she was on the receiving end of her sisters vicious attacks. It just broke her heart [and mine]. It actually got so bad that I didn't leave them alone together. Once we knew about her heroin addiction, I talked to her younger sister about her sister's counseling and that she would be taking medicine that would make her better. Almost immediately she started staying away from her sister. I don't know if she was afraid of her sister or if she'd just had enough of her abuse. 

Anyway, that was then ...and now we're happy that our addicted daughter is in recovery and is truly happy again and that our younger daughter has a great relationship with her sister. Our home is a happy home again...

I don't think we would be where we are today without seboxone. Seboxone gave her a chance to live again, to live happy...and to live free from heroin. Seboxone gave us a chance to breathe again. I'm breathing...I'm happy and for the first time in a year I'm not afraid of tomorrow.
