The Secret Life of a Privileged Girl Gone Wrong is an ongoing story of my personal life’s struggle battling addiction, lose, and losing my sense of self. I want to share my story with you in hopes that any young girl battling addiction can hopefully relate and see that she is not alone in her struggles.
Also, putting my story out there for the world to see I hope will bring realization to stereotypes people have on addicts. Addiction does not care who you are, where you are from, what race your are, what gender, what religion you practice, it can and it does happen to all types of people. I did not come from a broken home. I was not abused as a child. I was raised in a loving family, with parents and grandparents who taught me values and morals. But the diseases of addiction still got me in its grips and held me down for years. My story is real and it is scary. My life has not been pretty. But in order to save another suffering addicts life, I must share my story to help prevent other girls from hitting the rock bottoms that I did. My hopes are to raise the next young addicts bottom, that she will get help before she has to experience the things I had to experience.
No one deserves to live a miserable life and if you are struggling with addiction I want you to know that there is a way out and if you reach out for help there are people who have been exactly where you are and they are willing to help in anyway they can.
With Love, C.M.S.
