I don't want to sound like an idiot, but what exactly is Focalin? I was using roxy's and had to snort them to feel them. As for the rest of your post..... I can totally relate. I also kept my addiction from everyone who knew me, in fear of being judged. I feel for you man. You are too young to give your life to a monkey. Once I know what focalin is I may be able to help a little more.
I just looked it up cause I was wondering what it was also. Its like Ritalin and Adderall.
I agree he's awful young to be caught up in this rat race. How did you get on this medicine? The doctor? Maybe you can talk with him in confidence about your concerns.There is alot of support out here guys and gals of all ages. I commend the young ones and am especially proud of you for being out here and seeking a forum like this. I'd talk to the school councelor again I say in confidence. Also I don't want to tell you what to do, but you might think of changing some of the friends you hang with.
Good luck to you!!! Cathy
All I have to say, Is...... Well said Cathy. Great advice.
Thankyou John. I even surprise myself sometimes.I try so hard to do the right thing.Sometimes I feel like i'm between a rock and a hard place. It isn't easy. But us guys that have been at it for a while, we just learn to pick ourselves up and try, try, again.This young man has everything to live for,with a bright future ahead. And he can either take the right path and perhaps be an advocate for his friends that may be on the same path (of destruction)And proudly say look at me! If I can do it anyone can,,or go down the other path. Thats the path that leads him to jail, hospital, or the grave. Yes, I've been at this for so long, the drugs don't get me high anymore, so whats the point?
I found my best friend last december in her appartment. She didn't answer her phone, and I knew something up. I climbed in thru the window and found her dead laying on the floor. It was just awful. I don't want my story to end that way. Quote from Pink's song Sober. Too much to live for and life is precious and short.
Again, well said. I too lost a friend to drugs. He was mixing cocaine, xananx, and alcohol. Quite a cocktail huh? His girlfriend (my ex's sister) found him blue on the couch. It tore apart our whole social circle apart. I hope this young man listens to our stories and learns from ours and our friends mistakes. I don't know any pink songs but I do know a song from shinedown called "Save Me". I can send you the lyrics if you want. This song could have literally been written by me. LOL
Robot831 You still out here? You've done something good out here allready. Not many people talk to me out here, cause they don't know me, and I got a new friend here tonight and this is all good. I'd love the lyrics of the song John. Maybe we can go on the social side and chat sometime. Cathy
I would love that Cathy. Add me as a friend. You too robot, having people to talk to makes a huge difference in your life. Trust me.
