At age 15 I was put in a drug rehab for a dependency on pain killers I wasn't trying to get high.

I just wanted to end the pain by age 21 I had tried twice to end my life know one understood the pain I was in daily agony I am now 24 and still suffer every day migraines have ruined friendships relationships and any chance I ever had to be accepted or understood.

I am proud to say my addiction to prescription pain killers is now under control I have been sober for four years but still I struggle with constant every day pain. I have been on preventive meds and non narcotic pain meds but still I struggle.
