My experience at The Watershed was tremendous. At first I always thought the staff was there to just be rude and have things go when they wanted to. At the end I realized they were doing their job and just trying to help me the best to their abilities. The Watershed saved me a lot of pain, misery and loneliness. I really thought I had nothing to lose but looking back now, I had so much to lose, I just didn’t think I would lose anything. With the whole rehab romance going on within The Watershed, keep in your lane. Getting in a romance just isn’t worth it. Most people come in because they are broke and hopeless; being in a romance just automatically sets you up for failure. This is the time to work on yourself, and yourself only. I know when I went there, I thought I was going to find my future ex-husband, but in reality, I just didn’t want to focus on myself. Being home, you realize how many people you have at The Watershed for sober support, you may not have that at home. So enjoy it while you can. Take advantage. My hope is to be better off than how I was and actually be able to do the right thing when nobody is looking. It’ll take some time but when you can actually trust yourself is the time when you know you’re changing.
