What made you get help?
In summer 2020, I developed really severe stomach pains which I believed were a result of damage I’d done to my liver through drinking. I was taken to hospital by ambulance and admitted to A&E. After about 10-15 minutes, a nurse came to see me and told me I was in labour and needed to give birth. I was in shock and disbelief. I’d been told years before by a doctor that I wasn’t able to have children. 20 minutes after the nurse told me this, I’d welcomed my baby boy into the world. I talked to the hospital staff about my substance issues and they put things in place to get me some help with this. A detox worker from TBRP visited me in hospital and I started my recovery journey from there.
