How codeine came to be my best friend and why I am grieving its loss.
Category: Lived experiences
Day One of my recovery journey and where my love for drugs began.
Getting a diagnosis, a degree and getting back on track.
What it’s like to be addicted to codeine and the terror of facing forced abstinence.
The scary incident that made me seek help and finally get a diagnosis.
Riding the thrilling and dysfunctional highs of hypomania.
The aftermath of reducing medications.
When self-care gets overwhelming.
When medication makes reality feel less than life.
Falling down the rabbit hole.
