I’m Back….

Well, It’s been a long time since I wrote anything here at Tweekerland; I got a wild hair so to speak (driven by a desire to write, and by the receipt of a nice new desktop computer. The PC I had been using crashed long ago, and so did I.)
On 1/1/11, I lost my [...]

Pretty Dumb.

08/01/2010 – 11:16 pm

Well, after all the morning drama, I went off to work. The cool thing was, the Sheriff’s dispatcher kept calling me to see where I was, how I was doing… and if I was going home after work (Since they were going to keep hubby behind bars, it was safe.) I thought to myself (And [...]

Back to the “Drugalog…”

06/25/2010 – 8:38 pm

Keeping this brief, I’m going to jump to the part where the police have taken my husband away from my cute little cabin. I’m gonna jump ahead to the part where people at work suspect there is something not quite right about me – but, as usual, I do a pretty good job, so they [...]

Wherever I go, there I am.

We shared a condo with a lady and her baby.  Paul, my dog Moe, and  I lived in the upstairs portion, and we all shared the kitchen.  I had a new job at a local hospital, no one there knew about my history, what I had done, or much else except my name.  At the [...]

The “Geographical Cure”

01/02/2010 – 7:48 pm

I had lost my career, and with that a large part of my identity. My friends were in and out of the house constantly, we had band practice in our garage at least twice a week which brought with it a lot of people, drinking, and a constant “Party” atmosphere. My kids were young, the children of [...]

“Functional Addict”

12/07/2009 – 8:00 pm

I finished college. I got a job with the State, I got married, the house with the picket fence, 2 kids, a dog, and and a drug problem.  The only way I was able to stay off the meth and cocaine and other “Hard” drugs was to be pregnant; this, of course, means that in [...]

“It’s Neuro Toxic”

11/03/2009 – 3:02 am

I have been wondering where to go from my last post… that Halloween Night, full of meth and just released from the Hall…   other than to simply say that we went to go do what we always did, use, drive around, fight, maybe not fight, etc.
Needless to say at that point I did need a new job, [...]

The Mab

10/17/2009 – 1:18 pm

So the high school experience essentially involved learning how to use more drugs, learning that Meth allowed me to stay awake longer so that whatever drugs I was taking were gonna last longer, and that I was no longer the person I was intended to be. Not even close.

This blog is about methamphetamine and addiction; [...]

Skating on Thin Ice

10/10/2009 – 8:18 pm

This story is going somewhere. This story is convoluted, this story is twisted, and this story is, in many ways, a story about more than one person.
The problem, though, is that the story is only about me, so that makes the above statement a bit confusing.  For anyone who is an addict, my guess [...]

Tip of the Iceberg…

10/01/2009 – 5:40 am

Before I get into this entry, I want to make something crystal clear.

Although I am talking about the history of my own journey through meth addiction and recovery, it is important to me that readers know something. I may talk about how things were when I grew up, I may talk about my relationships or [...]
