MEET TINA. . . UNCENSORED & NO FILTER!

0 0

I decided to share a lil more about myself to eveyone that reads or follows my blogging journey. Because to me it’s not just about my writing journey. It’s also about my recovery journey. Yes, I have created a website advertising that I, and a select group of others, are here for other addicts, whether in recovery or still in active addiction. In no way am I trying to put out there some false image of myself as this perfectly sober person that has all their shit together. Because I’m not!

I’m a 39-year old recovering addict who feeds meds to my body so my mind can cope with all of the bullshit inside my head.

((I hope that made sense to everyone who chose to click on this post an read it)).

I struggle with these afflictions on a daily basis and it sucks! I must admit though that my mental health hasn’t been giving me any trouble what-so-ever. I’m so grateful for that too, man. Because when one is in the throes of depression, bipolar 1 & 2, anxiety, PTSD, and all the rest of them, it pushes many, myself included, into wanting to use so we won’t feel any of that bullshit. That’s why I used. My mind contains everything that’s happened to me, that has impacted my mind, branding itself into a searing burn on the inside of my fucking brain. I didn’t wanna think bout none of that crap, much less remember the fuckin shit so I’d do any drug that made me forget those nasty, gross, slimy fuckin feelings!

I labeled myself a ‘Feel Good Junky‘. I did any drug that made me feel good. No! Made me feel fuckin GREAT. But I couldn’t see what my actions were causing those who loved and cared about me to feel. Honestly, I really didn’t care back then when I was in the midst of my drug use. I was still very young and figured I had my whole life ahead of me so I was gonna do what the fuck I wanted to do. Fuck what everyone else thinks or feels. They didn’t feel the shit I was feeling, or even know why I felt the way I did from jump. So, I continued my drug abuse. Causing a lot of damage to very important areas in my life, that I had no fuckin clue why whatever happened, had happened whenever it actually did.

I’ve held these words inside of me since last week when I was in group at the clinic. My dumb ass chose to use before I went in and there wasn’t a valid excuse/reason for me doin it either. I told my NP and assistant the truth. I love the fact I don’t have to lie to them. The fact I don’t FEEL that I have to lie to them. During group that day (being the Thursday before last) I had an anxious feeling in my belly. It was because I knew I was high around other ppl tryin not to be the way I was. I still admitted in group about my use that morning. They are nothing but supportive and understanding and I have a lot of respect and love for each an every member in my group.

By the end of group, after I journaled, I was at ease. There was no more anxious feeling in my belly, and in that moment I knew I was gonna be more than okay if I didn’t ever get high again.

I’ve been popping dirty with my drug screens for the past 2 months I know. This past week when I went in I was CLEAN. It felt so damn great, wonderful, exciting and jus plain ol’ good, to have pissed clean except for my meds. I like how I feel sober way better than I do when I’m high. My thoughts are collected and not scattered and disorganized. Being a big jumbled mess. I don’t take for granted this beautiful life I’m apart of bearing witness to my children grow up and start their own familie’s.

I don’t really know why I chose to write all this. But I jus got to studying that I didn’t want no one else thinking I’m something I’m really not. If I lose follower’s for posting this, I’m sorry if I let you down or if you thought better of me than I really am. I don’t want to live behind a logo or name of a website advertising myself in a better light than what I actually live in. I’m human like the rest of us are. I fuck up too. The difference between me and other’s tryin to act like me? I can call myself on my own bullshit! I can admitt my mistakes publicly in front of those I’ve hurt or mislead. And when I apologize I mean it with every fiber of my being.

There it is for everyone in black-n-white. The real Tina Peck. Take me as I am or leave me. But don’t tear me to shreds when you don’t really know me, and never truly have.

About Post Author

BooBoo

I'd rather read a good book, VS watching the movie made from it on TV. Most thoughts on that are 'why'. Well, my answer for that is that there aren't any limitations to your imagination. Therefore, when I'm reading an action packed thriller that I can't put down or stop turning the pages of is because the details are written by the author describing the scene/situation with such clarity, that I think it's far better than what anyone can visibly see on TV. That being my opinion only, I'm sure millions and billions of avid readers out there agree with me 100% on that reason alone. I've always had an active imagination growing up. I'd use the almost empty cans of shaving cream my dad would give me, as the whipped cream on top of the mud pies I made.Of course dad got the first one. After all, he did give me the topping. I was very versatile also. I was the biggest tom boy of a little girl you'd ever see one day. To dividing Barbie clothes between me and my older sister (when I was lucky enough to get her to play with me). I had to play by her rules though. Perks of being the older sibling I guess. I loved playing with the Hot Wheel's cars in the dirt. Making race tracks and underground tunnels I'd dig out for them. Sometimes my dad would be outside with me showing me all kinds of different things I could pretend to do when playing cars. I have one day in particular that stands out among the rest. It was when I learned to do the underground tunnels for the cars to go through. He showed me by taking a simple stick off the ground and using it like a tool to push the dirt out from one side to the other. It wasn't a tunnel without keeping the top part intact. I acted like there was a cave-in, and then accidents, crashing the cars together. No one ever got hurt in my imagination though, just the cars got hurt. Growing up with a sister 6-years older than me taught me lots of things, both good and bad. If I kept her secrets, she kept mine. And the only reason I even had any secrets was because she allowed me to. I got to sneak and smoke in her bedroom at night after our parents went to bed. I had to be very quiet because I got caught most of the time. But I was always caught by our momma. And then all she made me do was get back in bed. I came from a poor family so anything name brand wasn't known to me for a long time. I was bullied and made fun of all throughout my school years. It doesn't matter which year you pick. From the 1st grade, all the way through high school. I know that's terrible to have to admit, but I think it'd be even worse having to admit to being the bully. I swore to myself I'd never treat anyone the way those kids treated me and made me feel. It bothered me so bad I'd dream about standing up for, and actually fighting over other kids getting bullied. I woke up all of a sudden one morning after punching the lights out of a bully in my dream. When I really punched the headboard and made my knuckles bleed. Come on! When a child is taking on the burden of other bullied kids, you know that's a heavy burden to bear. It was also very hard on me. I never talked about it to my parents though. Yeah, they knew. But back then no one really knew what to do about that problem like they do now. Or, well, think they do. I've been in counseling since starting school. I can't remember a day going by without me seeing the school guidance counselor. Shout out to Mrs. Reeves though, at Lone Oak High School. She made the biggest impression on me as far as wanting to help other kids like me. The bullies were actually the kids who came from well-to-do families. Kids who never knew what it was like to experience the disappointment of being told 'No'. Or that there wasn't enough money to buy what they wanted. Kids that figured there wasn't anything better to do except make fun of the less fortunate to get them through their day or to have a conversation piece. The anger and hatred that built up inside of me was, and still is undescribable. The thoughts they caused me to have. Picturing the tables being turned and the bad things said back to them, bad things being done back to them. It only made me feel better on the inside. I've been asked by numerous doctors in my life if I'm suicidal. I've answered no, being completely honest each time. But never have they asked if I've felt homicidal! I know, scary right? The outcome of such thoughts is what triggered the start of mass school shootings. Coming into adulthood was strange territory for me as well, and actually caused me a lot of uncomfortable times, knowing things I knew I could now do but never felt comfortable ever talking about. Even with my sister, the person I was closest to, I couldn't open up and freely talk about anything of the sexual nature. I guess because bad things have happened to me on more than one occasion when I was still very much an innocent child. With me hiding such horrid things from my parents, along with everyone else, I felt I couldn't talk about the good kind of sex either. Man did that ever set me back, keeping me immature of certain things I should've known already but didn't. Because in my mind I was still that child who was hurt in a bad way. They were called 'Red Touches' back then. What we were taught to call them in school anyways. Then just when I was becoming independent and living on my own, learning to stand up for myself in a way that would make my sister proud of me, I lost her. That caused me to go into a deep depression I didn't come out of for many years afterwards. March 29, 2003 changed my life forever. I lost my 2-year old nephew that night to a raging house fire. My sister passed 17 days later in the burn unit in Vanderbilt, Tennessee. However, if you've read 'My Story', a post on my blog. Then you'll know that in order for me to know what I now know, and to be the person that I now am, all of the bad shit had to happen first or else I wouldn't have caught and held onto the message so vital for me to have acquired in my life. Helping the less fortunate. Being someone's somebody they can depend on being there when they need them the most. After receiving confirmation that my nephew didn't suffer, not for one second in that house fire... Was I able to let that burden go, only to let in that oxygen, that life support I desperately needed to save myself from a lifetime of misery. Even though I know my sister, Jennifer, isn't physically here to cheer and root me on. I know without a shadow of a doubt, her and Lil Jesse (my nephew) are both doing so from Heaven today, and everyday that follows. If you're suffering from addiction of any kind and you want or need someone to talk to I'm a damn good listener! My contact information is listed on my contact page. Please call, reach out for support. You're not alone no matter what negative thoughts are telling you that you are. God is always there for you as well. If you'd like to learn more about Jesus and how He died to save us, don't hesitate to ask. I'll share what I know is all good, and positive about God. Whom I choose to call my higher power. If you don't believe in God, then the subject will not be pushed. EVER! If you're battling mental health issues and feel alone like no one knows what you feel like. Then I'm here to tell you there's billions of people out there that will share with you that they too, feel just like you do. Hit me up on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. All of my accounts should be connected to my website. If you're waiting on me to respond and it's been a while since you tried getting in touch with me, then by all means be more persistent and bug the shit out of me. Make me see your messages. I will eventually and I'll always reply when I can. This is the best I think I've written in this 'about me' section. It's the most I've opened up publicly I know that. I'm open minded, I keep it 100 all of the time, even if it's something I don't like myself, or for others, I still have to keep it 100 with myself in order for me to keep it that way with everyone else. I hope this told everyone a little bit about me, maybe more than I originally intended. But it's all accurate and up to date with where I'm at in my life right now. Thank you all and God Bless
