Hi Root and Michelle!!!!!
Root....i just wanted you to know how very happy i am for you. You have been through hell to get where you are today and you are living proof that with the correct tools an addict can get sober and stay that way. I really believe you are right in only being around sober people and attending as many meetings as you can. I know for a fact, once i stopped the meetings, everything started going wrong. Meetings do really help with the mental aspect of getting on with your life w/out those little devils.
So i just wanted to say a quick "HI" and let you know how very proud i am of you. Try to keep us informed on your progress...you are top-notch in my book!
Michelle....do you have an appt. with the addictionologist today??????? I am so anxious to hear what they are going to do. Do you think i am crazy for considering suboxone????? I am just deathly afraid that i will be doing well on it and then BAM...somethings happens and they yank you off of it. It really sounds worse to get off of than the hydros, which i am having a hard enough time with. I am doing around 7 a day now.....did go up to 12 there for awhile, but am taking Chef's advice and trying to taper and straighten my act out so i can help other's in our situation.
Michelle, i have been thru so much ***** in my life, and i will tell you that getting off of these dam pills are the hardest thing i have EVER encountered. So don't get so down on yourself. We are all here struggling to lead a "normal" life. I have been wanting to post and talk to you but whenever i go on the board i don't see too much of you around anymore.
Well i hope we can chat soon, and good luck with the doctor.
