I just posted a new Journal Entry titled "Words of Encouragement." It is open for everyone to view, if you wish. In addition to addiction to Lortab, for the past couple of years, I have also struggled a lot with severe depression. I started collecting quotes that were meaningful and/or helpful to me in my struggles. I know some people think these things are cheezey or cliches, but I know that looking back over some of these quotes has helped give me much needed boosts once in awhile. I went through the 10 plus pages I have collected over the past couple of years and pulled out some of my favorites and the ones that have been the most helpful to me. Some of them have really helped me to make the decision to stop taking the pills and have helped immensely over the past 6 days of withdrawals when I was tempted to give in to my addiction.

Feel free to check them out and I hope that they will prove to be useful to someone else who is struggling.

As you can probably see, I already have, and they're great.  I have a couple of schedulers that have quotes in them that I've saved for a few years that I was hoping to cross-stitch somewhere.....now you've given me enough to cross-stitch for the rest of my life!
