Just Blogging

I figured out a way that I can blog on this website and not run the risk of my family (namely my husband) seeing what I'm writing....I can use my new iPhone. Yippie! I'm working on my addiction to Adderall...I guess more precise abuse of Adderall...I had a legit prescription...but I was abusing big time, for about eight years. I've tried twice before and was hospitalized, I was also hospitalized this time. I'm bipolar and the Adeeall was causing my life to spin out of control....I was suicidal and rather desperate. This time around I'm working with my bishop and I have the support of my Relief Society president and a couple of other wonderful sisters in my ward...this is all making a HUGE difference!!! I'm learning that I can't do this alone. I do need this program, a priesthood leader, supportive friends and most importantly my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. Each week I learn something new by attending the support group. This week..when we turn out lives over to the Savior, He will take care of us and fill all of our needs that we thought our addiction was meeting.

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
