The best thing about VRC is probably just the people, the relationships that you build in here. I like going to the Alcoholics Anonymous meetings every single day. I really just enjoy the people that I’m in touch with in the program and the people they hire to work for them. They are really just down to earth, a lot of them had the same problems with drug addiction as I’ve had. I remember coming in and living at Siesta House. Travis was cooking stuff up and he was able to talk about what it was like and what it’s like now. I could just see the light in Travis’s eyes. I thought to myself, I want that. I could have that if I kept working at this. They really want the people in here to get better. And that’s what I really like about it.
I was just tired waking up every day. I had this feeling inside of me, just this generally unhealthy feeling where not only emotionally there was a hole in my soul I was just digging it deeper. I just felt this heavy feeling in my chest just like I was dying, I couldn’t get rid of it. I woke up every day feeling like I was dying until I got my drugs, when I got my drugs it still wasn’t enough. I was never enough.
