I no longer see in labels...
Stigma...a word that leaves many to hide in shame. A word that divides...and a word that leads those afflicted by addiction to be conquered and devoured by its evil grip.
Sadly, addiction took the life of the young woman in this Podcast, Kirstyn...
Stigma and fear...It made me question helping this individual who was homeless...And sadly, this person wasn't a stranger...this person who I loved and adored...one who came to our home and made us smile...a young woman who dated and loved our son for a total of 6 years...but due to this word, our son was afraid to tell us he was over his head and the situation that came before him... He feared we would judge...
Addiction was thrown into my face, full blown...HD, surround sound...a lost unrecognizable soul who came to my door. And one who lost her life after at least seven resuscitations throughout the night...
I learned through this process there were many out there that also feared and placed a label with addiction. Many who judged and provided words of comfort like, "Why are you helping an addict? There are innocent babies out there that need help, kick her out!" So many condemned me for helping this beautiful soul...I learned people can become downright ugly.
Since my experience, I no longer see in labels...
I learned so much through Kirstyn... I learned addiction wasn't someone elses problem. Our schools throughout the nation are filled with young people just like her... struggling...There are people from all walks of life afflicted and addicted....EDUCATE YOURSELVES. QUIT JUDGING. QUIT THINKING IT WON'T HAPPEN IN YOUR FAMILY.
Stigma...a pathetic word derived from labeling and stereotyping...and ignorance. A word that needs to be replaced with empathy...
