i'm good. thoroughly well.


Except, I’m mendacity.

Or used to be the 1st time I wrote this, besides.

Month after month, on days whilst I felt positive sufficient to visualize that without doubt 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, optimistically good.

It appears like a miracle.

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

I used to be a fortunately married mom of 3 grown youngsters and the writer of 9 novels. In September of 2012, I hopefully offered myself for overall knee substitute surgery—one of 670,000 such sufferers within the U.S. that year—and, due to doctor–prescribed Oxycodone and Xanax, rapidly 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 reviews again, permitting the reader to come to a decision 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 commute to a couple stylish eco resort.

This booklet is not any such thing.

No one may ever decide to adventure what I and such a lot of others have passed through in soreness withdrawal from physician-prescribed medicinal drugs, yet because my existence took this bad flip and that i ensue to be a author, it seems like being tapped at the shoulder—Tag, you’re it. converse up.

Stories of addiction-related depravity abound; causes of ways humans finally get well, now not loads. Mine is the tale I longed to listen to in the course of my withdrawal: a narrative of wish, strong proof that individuals can one way or the other pass though this and live on. in case you learn this booklet a few years sooner or later, relaxation guaranteed you needn't worry Googling my identify in basic terms to discover that I relapsed correct after its book. no matter what lies forward for me, something is still definite: i cannot be taking place 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, during my lengthy therapeutic, a very ailing, reclusive girl, in convinced stretches approximately comatose and, in my bleakest moments, the raging whinge of the World.

Ask my kin.

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