70 Days OMG

Never thought I'd get here I haven't been posting much but wanted to check in and say to all of you who don't believe you can live without opiites, you can.
I'm still very fragile and emotional but I'm going to a lot of meetings and there are so many wonderful things going on with my family and being preasent for them is amazing, weddings, grandchildren present and future WOW I'm really an awesome sober Mom, wife, Nana, friend and it helps my broken spirit so much to be loved needed and wanted by those I love. I was a ghost in my own life foe so long sp painful to live in active opiate hell tirning my will and life over to a pil.
After relapsing 3 times I'm finally feeling more comfortable and not looking back but putting one foot in front of the ot

You know how proud I am of you. :) It's a hellish and lonely journey to take your life back, but you have done it! You have an amazing life to embrace now. I am thrilled you are rediscovering how wonderful life can be without being tied to a pill bottle. Your spirit isn't "broken" doll, far from it and you are proving it everyday! Keep putting one foot in front of the other, you are on the path and it only leads to more happiness. :)
