yes me to want to smoke a cigarette and. smoke a cigarette we went behind a tree and smoked a cigarette and then he said you want to hit off of this and it was a joint and i got to tell you i took a hit off the joint and i thought i was a different human being i went from smoking pot at but that kid to do an essay of anything that made me forget about who i was were was that and what i looked like was what i wanted i wanted what you had i want to your mom and dad i wanted your blond hair i wanted your blue eyes i want to get i wanted your legs if i could have all of that i'd been here and now why i need to be somewhere else i think i was always trying to commit suicide but i didn't have the guts to actually do it i got to tell you were drugs took me crack cocaine instantly took every single thing that i hear i had no morals left by the time i was done i had i
was about seventy five pounds almost eighty pounds when i got sober i met a man in my dreams you know we all have one of those and two years later i am pregnant with my daughter and everybody asked me to abort because i was a drug addict and i said no i was going to have this baby you know because i'm just fine this is great i'm going to have this baby i have this baby. and. the scotts always talk with me. i remember when my daughter was six months old and we had no food for her she had beaten in two days. and she had cried for about forty eight hours and. i finally took the bus took two buses to my mother's house it was that week before easter and my mother answered the front door and i said i can't take your point more and i left her there and and there she lived and my
daughter was six years old when i got sober she hated me she despised me. and. you know today i can tell you that i have a great relationship with her but i have to work might have to gain that respect from her. i know i'm jumping back and forth but i just wanna say that i want to say watched one of your groups and i'm going to tell you how envious i was to watch you guys interact i never had that kind of a group where you guys support each other and you tell each other how everything's going to be ok because i think ultimately it's all but that's what we're all looking for isn't it for somebody to say you're ok you're going to be ok you're going to make it no matter what happens maybe i can't do this alone but we together we can do it and i think that that's what this group does it says we as a group can do this. and i honor to be here thank you so much thank.

there to serve the other big baby no one else like me there is no baby number two here. elizabeth is eight weeks pregnant. it makes me feel happy or sad. but essentially we just gain more responsibilities and now i can't afford not to make seventy miles an hour. maybe going to stone double masi. a little on the. hiltons hope of being able to make it on just one job of shortland. in addition to car expenses hilton and diane i just received the medical bills from the pregnancy and miscarriage. make a field that was like thirteen thousand two hundred. i don't have the money to pay . health ins now back to working more than eighty hours a week. disconcerted it all mental but it's also. said
