Zach, we all make mistakes, hence how were here on this site. It's ok. Sometimes life kicks us down a notch, and narcotics and drugs will always be a battle, like the virus you have to see that you're stronger then them, and in time you will be. We all believe in you, don't let this get you down, accept the mistake, own it and move on. Be happy you're alive, it means you have a reason to be here. Embrace it. Were all here if you need to talk.

Hugs Zach! I buried my dad right before I got my dx, this year has been the worse year of my life. but I'm a fighter I will not let life beat me or this virus. We all fall down and pick ourselves back up and dust us off and continue on that's just what we do.  Hang in there I'm here for you as well as others here. even if i'm new I'm a great listener! if you ever need an ear or two just let me know
sometimes it is best to say nothing at all. then to offend
