Things are going very well for me :) I've been working in the forensic drug and alcohol field for two and a half years now. Got my own apartment close to the beach. My anxiety is under control (as well as the adhd). Tomorrow will be scary...i have to have sinus surgery and wont have any choice but to take painkillers. I knew a day like this would come eventually. My doctor says I will be fine and that the reasons I was misusing painkillers in the past are no longer an issue for me (depression,  anxiety,  adhd, family trauma ).
How are you doing?? :)

I am doing well.  Have 3 grandbabies now and they are the loves of my life. I continue to discover the beauty of my recovery.  I am in a healthy relationship, have a great relationship with my kids and job i love.  Not looking forward to winter as Minnesota can be brutal this time of year!!

Hopefully you will feel better after the surgery.  You will be fine with the meds as your doctor is aware also.  I bet your job is interesting!!  I am a CSI junkie!!

Hi guys! Surgery went well...anaesthetic made me sick but that has passed now. Hopefully I won't need many painkillers at all. I haven't had any crazy pain as yet, keeping my fingers crossed!
