I'm so proud of you, you and your husband both are doing so well.  How long was it before you were feeling better?  I'm on Day 5, although if you read my post below, I had some cough syrup with some codiene in it.  I don't think it was a lot, but an opiate all the same.  I still feel pretty rotten,, can't eat, and can't keep anything down.
Anyway enough about me.   I've been reading your posts all along this weekend and think it's just amazing what you have been through with your family.  It would be so awesome if all families could be that honest with each other.  I know it started pretty rough, but sounds like it ended well for everyone.  Keep up the good work, you have been such an inspiration to me to do this myself.

You are more than welcome to any advice and all the support I have to offer.  I apologize if I seemed pushy when answering your post on this subject last week.  I fit into my family like socks on a rooster, and envy those who have a true family right at their fingertips.  Never underestimate what your family can tolerate and help with.  More times than not they will love you past your pain.

socks on a rooster  lmao....u r so funny....no u werent pushy i thought u were honest and that is what i needed if it hadnt been for u i probably woudnt have went honestly so thanks.....i am thankful for my family they just scare me sometimes  lol....my mom still thinks its her fault like she did something wrong and she didnt....i tried to tell her she didnt but i can understand why she feels that way i have 2 girls and i would wonder about that myself if god forbid they were addicted to something.....but i would also go thru hell and high water to help them...they also told me they would pay for rehab if i felt i needed to go.....which im doing fine at home i think....but its good to know they will go that far for me.....this has just brought us closer just like u said so again thank you michael....love u god bless...btw u have me to talk to anytime u want im here.....

You are right. So many of our loved ones have no idea how many people suffer with this and most in silence. I'm glad to hear your hubby is doing well also.

No one knows or can understand an addict, like an addict....

I am sure your family loves you and cares about you a great deal. Just please be proud of YOU, as we, your forum family, are so very proud of you also...

xoxo, Lisa
