Discussions that mention vicodin

Hey Joan,

Just wanted to say congrats and check in. I figure you're probably busy ice fishing or bulding an igloo, but never the less you are in my thoughts and I hope all is well.

As for me, things are going great. Tomorrow marks three weeks clean for me and I can't believe how fast the time has passed. Wasn't it just yesterday I was barely getting through day 5? It feels like it in hind sight. I'm back working at full speed again and I'm handling life back on the set much better than I hoped. Remarkably the pain that sent me to these pills in the first place seems to be nothing like I remembered. I still get sore but nothing like the debilitating pain that I was dealing with prior to starting the morphine. Go figure. My only real regret is that I didn't muster the courage to do this sooner.

I'm out of the weird sleep cycles now and back to going to bed when I want and getting up when I have to. I still have the occasional night where the restless leg pops up, but even then I still manage to get the sleep I need. During the day I really don't feel anything much at all so that's good. It seems like by mid-week this week alot of my stuff cleared up all at once. Surprisingly I have zero cravings, despite having been offered a vicodin yesterday (which I turned down) and I've not had much, if any, depression. My energy level is returning to normal too. In fact, tomorrow I'm going kayaking if you can believe that.

Anyway, without you and DP and Kare I wouldn't be here. It was your support and understanding that helped me through one of the hardest times of my life. I'm eternally grateful to you all, you helped me get my life back.

Drop me a line and let me know you're okay!
