Hmmmmm...Doing a lot of research, regarding being a heroin-addicted Mother.
In "Just us", the short film about to be produced(filming begins tomorrow!), I play exactly that.A mother who "graduates" from prescription-pain-killers to (eventually) heroin.
Earlier this week, I was researching the effects of heroin on the body, etc., and I came across a poignant essay from a young woman who lost her younger sister, to heroin. You can read about it, at my other blog: "Practice What You Peace".

Last night, I attended a NA(Narcotics Anonymous) meeting, and in keeping with their required anonymity, I won't say anything other than the phrase "searing honesty" kept coming into my mind.When I was welcomed(and I felt very welcome), I just said "I'm Lisa, and I'm here to understand."
I've gotten to meet some of the other actors who'll be working with me. They are superb. And I like the director: Atlanta Screenwriter/Director, Reggie Price.
Wish me "Break A Leg".
