  • Last evening I walked into an emergency room alone experiencing chest pains. Laying in a hospital bed experiencing some discomfort my intake nurse asked me if I'm allergic to anything? With a few days over having 2 years free from all substances I looked her dead in the eyes and said I am allergic to all opioids, benzodiazepines, and any other narcotic known to man...I explained to her I am recovering from substance abuse disorder and she smiled and congratulated me and gave me this bad ass wristband.

As part of my story is that the doctors & hospitals were some of my most reliable drug dealers. Today there's no room for mistakes recovery and health are the only motives. Moral of this post is simple; integrity & possibilities. If I can you can!
