by Life Ministries in Wisconsin
My whole life I have been on some sort of medication. At the age of 14, I was told I was a manic depressive. The medicine my parents and doctor put me on turned my life upside down. I started drinking, having sex and then running away. I was 13 and just moved from Great Lakes, Il to Camp Lejeune, NC. My dad was in the Navy.
I was a happy child mostly, until I realized I didn't get the attention and discipline that I was thriving for...I didn't want to be hit, yelled at, put down, so I acted out. I turned to sex for love. I feel medicines have a way of making a person worse and not better.
I am now 30. I have been in trouble with the law and have broken relationships. I lived everywhere and then I came back to Wisconsin. In December, 2005 a doctor told me I was Bi-polar. Not only was I on every medication in the book, I was way more depressed. I was in trouble with the law in Chicago (A felony with a police officer that was dropped to a misdemeanor), also here in Wisconsin, I'm on my third OWI.
All of this started after I was diagnosed in 2005. I feel the doctors use the word and condition Bi-polar lightly. Currently, I have a second charge in Racine and a third in Milwaukee pending right now.
In June 2008, I found out I was never Bi-polar. I am happier than ever and I no longer drink and I am medication- free today. I finally faced my fears from my past and have found myself. Through all of this turmoil, I have started my ministry called Life Ministries. And a business called Design ur Life Makeovers. I am doing support groups to help people in need. I am also in the process of making a program called NO KEYS, NO Drink. I am excited to go to Huber because I will be able to preach and touch all the lost people. I have been healed through the power of faith and prayer.
