Hi Hope, good to hear from you. Sorry to hear you havent beaten the meds yet, but hopefully with hubbys' support things will go better. A new strategy is cause for hope...all the best and heaps of courage to you, Kev.
Oh its bad, isn't it. I am still wondering how to keep this monkey off my back. Day three. My husband is really surprising me with his support. I still haven't told him that the meds are why I had those episodes. I don't think I ever will. It won't help anything. I have a 16 yr old son, as well as my 5 and 2 yr old sons. My teenager no longer lives with us, he is going to school, a very good school, in SC at my mother's house. She helped raise him, since I was a teen myself when he came along. I am hanging in there. I really truly thought I was the only one tramadol caught in its evil snare. I only heard about Oxy's and Hydro's ...never knew one single person on tramadol. Thanks for your note!!
Hi Hope, I was thinking about your 'bully at work' and our difficulty saying' no' today and I remembered something useful.. a few years ago I went on a training program for developing 'assertive' behaviour. It helped quite a bit, especially for dealing with agressive people etc AND saying 'no'. It was really very useful. Hope you're having a good day,all the best, Kev.
