My sobriety date is 10/2/15. It is also my Birthday. I ended up at The Watershed on my birthday because nothing really mattered anymore. I wasn’t looking forward to the party I was going to have with the limited birthday money I still got from family members, I didn’t care about the little job I had, I didn’t even care about life anymore. I accepted the fact that I was going to die but figured I would give it one last shot and called in. By nothing short of a miracle I stayed sober. I always thought of miracles as random acts of God. This miracle and the miracle I see every day around me is because of God but happens through the actions put into it. The Watershed showed me what to do to have that miracle happen. I love The Watershed and many people helped me especially in the beginning but I want to give a shout out to the nice cleaning lady that would come into my room in inpatient every day to clean and was just so nice. She could tell I was sick and even though I have no idea what her name was she would always be super quick and quiet when cleaning. Cheered me up and made me feel better, and I am pretty certain that the extra blankets I kept on finding on my bed may have had something to do with her. She is a person I wish I could thank but probably will not be able to. Nice things like that just didn’t happen to me before I came here.
