What Would You Do?

If I Had Cancer…

Would you just expect me to flip a switch and feel better cause you wanted me to?
Would you blame me or blame yourself?
Would you consider me weak?
Would you tell me to get over it?
Would you ask me to act different?
Would you tell me just try not to have cancer?

Or

Would you have compassion and understanding?
Would you hold me until I felt better?
Would you help my family until I was better?
Would you rally support for my wellness and care?
Would you help me find treatment?
Would you help me get through the inevitable pain I would be facing?

…Now, what if I told you I suffer from the disease of addiction?

  1. I’d have compassion and understanding and I’d want to hold you till you no longer need to be held. I’d be there with your family to help rally support for your wellness, care and treatment. And I’m here for you as you go through the inevitable pain of being.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. My mom is an amazing woman and Mother. She is unfortunately caught up in AA 12 step views that are outdated and don’t work with opiate addiction.
