~ Out of Chaos ~ A Personal Share

To my knowledge, my son started using when he was approximately 12 years old. I suspected something was up but I refused to admit it. In my heart I wanted to believe everything was ok.

One day while cleaning his room I found a glass tube better known as a ‘lolly’, the one used for smoking TIK. When I asked him about it, he convinced me it wasn’t his. My heart and mind were at odds, for my heart desperately wanted to believe him … but all the signs were there.

TIK was the subject in the media and I remember reading up on it. The aggression, mood swings, valuables mysteriously disappearing, blame shifting, master manipulation - was the order of the day. I became obsessed with my son’s addiction. I was anxious whenever the left the house. When I asked where he was going, he would lie and become irritated that I wanted to know. “It’s my life, stop bothering me. If I die that’s my problem.

VANESSA'S STORY

 

There I was searching for my wedding dress. "I'm actually getting married!" I thought. It still hadn't quite sunk in. As a young woman the girlish dreams of white weddings had been a reality; but after countless co-dependent relationships of all shapes and sizes, and several years of living alone (not to mention witnessing friends promising to honour and obey in the archaic hierarchy) - I knew marriage was not for me. Yet here I was! It had taken some convincing. Poor guy! But he'd done it.

I never thought a relationship could feel this right. We'd known each other for years, he was like my big brother - so much so that I was quite taken aback when he started flirting with me. Well, thank God he did - I felt happier than I ever have before. Marrying him made so much sense - an old friend I'd fallen madly in love with, we knew each other well, we respected each other - no need to prove anything, to bring out the dogs and ponies, to be likeable, loveable or anything else you think your new partner expects or needs. He loves me and knows me. And I him. 'A match made in Heaven'.

Five days to go.
