Hi & CONGRATULATIONS on 6 days. That IS a big deal.
I don't think I spoke with you but I am certain others have and mentioned aftercare (probably until you are blue in the face). In any case, I hope you listen and engage in some form of outside support. I don't want to see you see you back here with the posts I have seen thousands of times : "Haven't been around for a while, I relapsed".
Please look into something, you now have added stress in your life and that can be a huge trigger. Take good care of yourself.
I have already set up some aftercare I attend a group in which I kinda had some help getting started at my sons pre school but its a group of 6 other parents all recoverying addicts. So that helps alot. And I'm trying to get into an addictions specialist. Lastly I have set up family counseling because my pill addiction and my boyfriends meth addiction has affected my daughter.
Wow, you've really done amazing!! And sounds like you have a solid aftercare plan in place too. One suggestion, when you go see the doc about that kidney infection just tell him you don't want any narcotics. You've worked so hard to get through this and I'm sure you already know that getting that script of vicodan will put you right back to square one.
You must be so proud of yourself!! I know from our conversations that this was one heck of a time for you. Not only did you have the wds to deal with but a lot of stuff on your plate. But you did it!! :) Keep posting and again WAY TO GO!!
Well, first off, your very welcome. We only try to give to others that which was so freely given to us. That's awesome you have that group! Not only do you have addiction in common, but also the kids in school.
If I understood correctly that the child you take care of is his from when he cheated on you, I commend you greatly. I can imagine how that must have been, and still is. I can't stress getting into the steps with a sponsor enough, you will address a lot of the resentments and fears you have and be able to move forward. Good Luck
moonshyne I'm going to go to my regular dr. I will not go back to square one. I don't need narcotics for pain. My family keeps saying but what are you going to do about your back. Honestly my back hurts but I can deal with it.
Htownnofrown I love my group we all are very close and we all attend a parenting class together that has done wonders the parenting class is one thing tht has started my recovery my dr taking my pain pills was the final thing that made me decide I didn't need an addiction. And I'm so glad I found this site or i wouldn't of done it. Yes its his daughter from when he cheated on me. Her mom is an addict also meth to be exact was caught in 3 raids in one week. Went to jail this morning handed the baby over to my boyfriend and as far as I'm concerned as hard as it is if its his kid I'll help raise her he can't have in his current living situation hes in a oxford house so she is going to live with me she is only 4 months.

Its day 7 for me. I have spent the last 6 days laying around and I decided its time to make myself get up and do something. I got up and showered i even put jeans on and make up a big thing for me I don't do that often but it felt good. Got all 3 kids ready and we drove the 2 hrs to daddy's house and had a family day. We went to chucky cheese I was sober for the first time in 7 years and had so much fun with my family and our new daughter also I'm wore out and will sleep good tonight. But I'm so glad I pushed myself.

Been going to celebrate recovery I love it!!!! Life truly has looked up and I am living life and truly feeling things and it feels good and I owe it to all of you for supporting me thank you so much.
Much love and respect tara
I just read your post and all the comments. Congratulations! You've had a lot on your plate and you came through it all. That's so impressive. And having a new baby in your life, too! I think that's awesome that you're mothering her. All babies are such a gift. I think things happen for a reason. Just my opinion. Maybe this baby was brought into your life for you to help her and her to help you.
You must be pretty proud of yourself saying no to your doctor about the oxycodone and Tramadol. (I don't know why so many doctors insist Tramadol isn't addictive. My doctor says it's not either, but it seems pretty obvious that it is.) Hope your kidney infection clears up soon; they can be so painful.
I loved your post about going to Chucky Cheese (haven't been there in a long time, brought back memories :) It sounds like you had a great day that day.
Grocery shopping, one of my dreaded chores, too.
Keep posting about how things are going!
