A Lot Has Changed

I can't believe how much has changed since my last journal entry.  The friend (lets call her Nancy) I thought was my "best friend" turned out to be something entirely different, and we had a falling out.  My boyfriend and I realized we didn't work together, but now he is my best friend.  I can tell him everything, and he doesn't judge me like Nancy did.  She would call me a hypochondriac anytime I got sick, and never believed I contracted Lyme Disease or that I even needed back surgery when I clearly did.

I finally got off the Tramadol and onto Suboxone back in December 2010 and slowly tapered off with the support of my friends and family.  I am currently just about 2 years clean from opiates.  I still deal with chronic pain and will probably continue to do so for the rest of my life.
