i'm good. thoroughly well.


Except, I’m mendacity.

Or was once the 1st time I wrote this, besides.

Month after month, on days while I felt confident sufficient to visualize that absolutely i used to be approximately healed, I watched myself nail this tale down on religion on my own that by the point you’d learn those phrases, they’d be true.

And now, thank God, they are.

I am thoroughly, with a bit of luck good.

It seems like a miracle.

It nearly sounds like I’ve been lifeless, and now I’ve come again to brilliant life.

I used to be a fortunately married mom of 3 grown kids and the writer of 9 novels. In September of 2012, I confidently awarded myself for overall knee substitute surgery—one of 670,000 such sufferers within the U.S. that year—and, because of doctor–prescribed Oxycodone and Xanax, swiftly descended into 3 years of drug-induced hell.

Sometimes a author assigns herself a problem of expertise, deducting her expenditures on Tax shape C, then studies again, permitting the reader to determine for herself even if she’d wish to embark on a few rigorous nutrition, elevate chickens within the yard, divorce from all monitors, pattern a brand new health craze, or trip to a couple fashionable eco resort.

This e-book isn't any such thing.

No one could ever decide to adventure what I and such a lot of others have undergone in affliction withdrawal from physician-prescribed medicinal drugs, yet considering the fact that my existence took this awful flip and that i occur to be a author, it seems like being tapped at the shoulder—Tag, you’re it. converse up.

Stories of addiction-related depravity abound; factors of ways humans finally get well, no longer a lot. Mine is the tale I longed to listen to in the course of my withdrawal: a narrative of wish, strong proof that individuals can by some means pass though this and live on. if you happen to learn this e-book a few years sooner or later, leisure guaranteed you needn't worry Googling my identify simply to discover that I relapsed correct after its book. no matter what lies forward for me, something is still yes: i can't be happening within the flames of ongoing addiction.

Because of the powerfully harmful results of narcotic painkillers and anti-anxiety benzodiazepines at the mind, i used to be, throughout my lengthy therapeutic, a very ill, reclusive lady, in convinced stretches approximately comatose and, in my bleakest moments, the raging complain of the World.

Ask my relations.

Accidental Addict is the tale of ways all of it went down—the white, middleclass, “nice-lady,” pharmaceutically-induced trainwreck of my life.
