My friend Fisherman,
I am doing fine, thank you for checking on me. Day 25, I can't believe it. I still have horrible cravings and spend way too much time mourning the "pills", but I think that is pretty normal.
Last week was the worst, I was just so down and thought that this is how I would have to get used to feeling. This week, however, I have been much better. I am laughing now, and talking to co-workers that I haven't really talked to in two years. I can't believe how isolated I had become. Just communicating with the people that I had to communicate with. Don't get me wrong, I was nice, speaking to them in passing, saying Good Morning, etc. But to actually ask about their children, things like that, I realize that I stopped doing that somewhere along the course of my addiction. Now I have to rebuild other friendships that have fallen to the wayside.
Anyway, I am fine, still not great, but fine.
How are you? I hope that the plan that your doctor put you on has improved your quality of life. Are you ok? How is your pain, is it manageable now?
I know I have said this to you several times, but it has been awhile, so I'm saying it again. You were/are such a support for me during this most crucial, challenging, life-altering time of my life, and, for that, I can never thank you enough.
God Bless You Fisherman!
Your friend always,
