    Hello Everyone,

    I have been struggling with addiction to pain medicine for 4 years. I say struggling because everyday I get up and thank God that I no longer have the urge to want medication.

    The main reason I am emailing you is for some advice. Four years ago, I was arrested for calling in a prescription to the pharmacy under one of my many doctors at the time. It was my first offense so I was released on my own recognisense. I went to court and they ordered 25 hours of community service and 10 months in the IPSA program. I also at that time decided on my own, to get counseling. After being arrested I had to tell my husband and my family. Not two weeks after I was finished with the program I learned I could order the medication I was taking online without a prescription so I did. I abused my families credit cards, I used my grocery money for COD cost. I even took out a credit card in my sisters name. The whole time my husband stayed and said he forgave me. In March of this year my husband of 18 years, 25 years in total decided he wasn’t in love with me anymore. He said we had grown apart. My legs where literally pulled out from under me. We never went to counseling together to work on the damage I had caused to our marriage. As long as I was seeking help that was all that was needed. I am grateful for the difficult choice my husband had to make. I hit rock bottom and ended up on my knees in prayer. I had lost my path with God. When I went to my doctors for advice. I was extremely tired, anxious and in emotional and physical pain. My doctor sent me for addiction treatment, he found me a new therapist and psychiatrist, found great NA meetings and wrote down one prescription….he gave me the WAVA radio station and told me about New Life. All of this has changed my life but I’ve lost my husband. He separated from me, left our home and left our two children one is 17 and one is 14. I asked him if we could try couples counseling anything and he said that he has lost love for me and it’s been leaving us for the last four years. Our sex life suffered. I have hurt him deepley. I have asked God for forgiveness and I am trusting in his plain. I am still following all of my recovery programs and doing so much reading. I have read How We Love, Boundaries and Boundaries in Marriage. I don’t know how to reach my husband. I need to build trust back with him. I pray everyday that we can find a way to heal our relationship. I really feel he is my soul mate and God brought us together. I have explored my past, my relationship with my parents ect…when I talked to my husband about all of my findings he regarded it as excuses.

    Any advice or other materials you can think of would be grately appreciated. I am now a proud sponsor of New Life. This station has helped me tremendously. I am a part time preschool teacher so I give what I can. Please pray for my husband, my family and me.

    Thanks for “listening”.

    Many Blessings,
    Dana Hanlon

    Jody, I’ve been trying to access the program as well and nothing. I thought by now it would have been ready to download. I will call NLL to see what the problem is. Bless you!
