I really need some support, please help me - Part 110

    Well Prop 47 passed which means my charges will be dropped to two misdemeanors. I am so happy. California is trying to reduce the amount of people that are in jail for petty crimes such as drug possession. This means my felony of heroin possession is being converted to a misdemeanor. I am so lucky. In a way I guess being in the hospital worked to my favor. If I had gone to court earlier I would have been charged with the felony for possession. Since I missed that court date and went on Monday then Prop 47 passed and now I go to court in December and am eligible for this new law that is passing. I'm so lucky. Man this has been one wild ride. Maybe everything really does happen for a reason. I've never believed in that but I'm starting to wonder.

    Right now I'm having trouble reaching the guy that runs the program for the outpatient rehab I'm supposed to be attending. I want to make sure I get into that program so the judge sees I'm trying to better my life. I also want the help.

    I am still trying to figure out if my license is suspended yet. I just got my California license mailed to me. I had a Texas drivers license before that and they punched a hole through it indicating it is suspended even though it doesn't reflect that in the national database. I'm worried too that my insurance company will drop me for having a DUI. Does anyone have experience with that? Gosh I hope they don't drop me. How will I get replacement insurance. I expect it to go up but I hope they don't cancel me. All this crap for a bad decision. This has costed me so much. IT's costed me my freedom, money and family. I've put so much hardship on everyone. This has affected everyone.

    So much to worry about. I will write more later. I have to go for now.

    That is really good news, Mel. You've been overdue for some kind of break.

    Hey Mel,

    I didn't have time to read the whole thread but just wanted to tell you that struck me as an incredibly brave first post! I'm glad it sounds like you're on the right track now, I've lost a few years and alot of veins to the dragon myself so you should know you're overcoming one of the hardest things you're likely to experience in your life and defeating a problem which has beaten many a tough-guy and reduced even the most resolute amongst us to tears more than once. Take pride in what you've achieved thus far and let that pride grow within you a little more with each day that passes with you back in control =) You're back in the saddle babe!!

    Hi Mel-

    I'm still running wild and do not have a lot of time (Grady is actually walking across the laptop as I write...) but wanted to fully agree with your take on things happening for a reason. I could not agree more with your insight, as I, too, have noticed over and over again that (thankfully) in life. It's a hard concept to get your mind around, but once you do it helps with everything.

    Remember, just as you needed bailing out, of sorts, from family, friends and people who owed you nothing, they all needed to pay a debt (at the moment to you) as much as you needed it paid. So don't feel too guilty, as we all do what it is we need to for the best of all, in the long run.

    I do hope you get through the DUI ticket without losing your car insurance. Is the DUI involving your license part of this last court deal or a separate case that you still have other court dates on? Hope I'm not too out of the loop on this one. Been away fully from DF for days and I should have put a bookmark in a lot of my threads and mail in order to keep up to date, lol. I'll be around tonight to figure it all out.


    So, hope to catch you, Mel.

    Big hugs and lots of good thoughts your way-
