It could have ended her life
She continued about how heroin started taking over her life, saying, “Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked. The first thing I lost to the drug was my family. I disowned my mother and siblings and friends, but the truth is no one wants to talk to you when they suspect you’re a junkie.”
Her Only Love
Drugs and bad romance became her entire world. Not even her child could make her stop. She said, “It hurt my heart, made me sick to my soul that I couldn’t see my son. I filled that hateful void with more drugs. The drugs always made the pain go away. They didn’t turn on me or betray me. I guess heroin was my first steady, dependable lover. It gave me what I needed to live and I gave it my life. By this entry, heroin was the only thing I had in my life that loved me.”
One day, Jenelle had an unexpected moment of clarity and realized that her boyfriend didn’t really love her. That was the moment that she reached out for a helping hand. “I ended up calling the last person in the world I expected to talk to, or expected would help me. My mother. For all of our problems, I owe her for what she did that day. I called her and told her what kind of trouble I was in, and how I needed help,” she said.
