"I want to go numb," Addison replied.
For twenty years my wife battled an addiction to prescribed pain killers. Opiates disuniting her from a husband, from a family and from God. Slowly her need to go numb replacing all else. This is her story. And mine. A story of how faith was challenged as I walked through life with an addict, entering into valleys where the light never shines. Two decades of searching for hope in the dim, jagged Valley of Opiates, where doctors carelessly dispense the coveted painkiller without guilt. Over and over the opiates conquering her mind, until one day, she fell. It was time to write her story.
