Im gonna start out by sayn this. This country let alone this crooked stuck up state and the inhabitants that live in the fine state of CT never....and do i mean never! CAN EVER STOP KICKN A PERSON WHEN THIER DOWN! I have known Trisha since we were kids, no more than ten years old and for a bunch of people that say they know you really dont know shit. And if your true freinds try saporting her instead of actn like ur fukn god and shes nothn more than a waste of life! And for the people who don't know shit about her, havn even met her, watch ur mouths and try takn a look in the mirror cause there isnt one mutha fukn person on gods green earth that doesnt have skeletons in their closet. That goes for everyone. No one is perfect and if you have never experienced heroin addiction at first hand than you have no idea, no clue, and NOT A FUCKEN REASON IN THE WORLD TO OFFER YOUR ADVICE OR OPINION UNLESS ITS POSOTIVE AND SAPORTIVE!!!!!!....AND I TRULY MEAN THAT!!!!.....I have gone through hell and back with heroin addiction and i know exactly what shes dealing with and i know people should keep their NOSE in their own buisness!......for someone who has done time for heroin and hasnt touched the devils dope for years and still has a problem with addiction meaning a addictive personality like smoking and doing everything to an extremem, no one knows better than me. And i FUCKEN HATE her ex Mike, but she is dealn with enough shit so i dnt think she needs a bunch of know it alls that should worry about there shit puttn her down. Let the gurl be who she is and she is a great person and a smart one at that and she is a grown women so im pretty sure she can handle her own life without so called freinds telln her wat to do and sayn shes a theif....ya real fucken nice....caqll ur freind a scumbag....thats a true freind....but 2 the women who saved her....THANK YOU SO MUCH....i love her so much and you are a true human being....the way we are saposed to act to our fellow man and woman.....i truly believe in the lord and i can def say he knew what he was doing when he made you. Thank you so much. She really is one of the smartest persons i've ever met and has a genuine soul and heart! Thank you for saving my freind.

I went to treatment and have been sober since August 20,2009. It saved my life. Anyone out there you can do it. Drugs did turn me into a different person. Today I work a great recovery program and my parents and I have a great relationship. I moved and im not in CT. My life has gotten so much better. I deal with everything life throws at me, the best way I can. I have a great support network. Thank you to everyone who has cared. There is a way out of that life, you don't have to life like that. If you need information or help, please contact me. Life is MUCH BETTER SOBER!!!

mlfd mike is right. It makes me sick to read the shit you people say, she needs help, period. Addiction is an illness; would you make fun of someone for their cancer? P.S. if it hasn't happened yet it will, someone in your family or close to you WILL develop some kind of addiction, hey it may even be you... and there by the grace of god goes I.

While everyone here continues to stlick up for this girl , she is currently pulling the same stunts in 2016. She will always try to use her body to keep getting what she wants. Its beyond used up but somehow she keeps doing it guy after guy after guy. If you talk to her just realise she is thinking of ways to use you. Thats all she knows

Good for you. I imagine it will take some time before people come around and acknowledge the new you. I know someone who used to be a 'one person crime wave'. Now that she's off drugs it's going to take quite a while for people to give her credit- they're still angry about getting ripped off.

Good thing it wasn't those two black ladies who didn't help someone because they were off duty.
