hey Girl....just keep putting one foot in front of the other you will get better I promise.....recovery is a Gift from God...for some reason he dident allow us to dye wile using....there is so many things that can go wrong wile abusing pills.....I have O/Ded 3 times it put me in the hospital twice....the shear amount of tylonal I ingested should have wiped out my liver.... respiratory failure has nothing to do with how high you are...some people go to sleep and never wake up.....you can smash your car wile high the list goes on and on and it is at epidemic proportions today right now someone is dyeing from pain pill addiction every 19 min in this country more the auto accidents or being shot.....this is a serious disease and it has struck home in our family my younger sister in law died from a accidental overdose at 32 left 3 kids behind a scar on our family....so in your prayers dont forget to thank God your alive many people dont survive to find recovery....it kinda puts things in a better perspective....being alive should be at the top of your gratitude list ....write one every day with at least 10 things on it and as always keep posting for support
hey wbf, ive been reading your posts and i think your progress has been tremendous! it took me a long time to feel energy again the first time i got clean. for pretty much a month i had to force myself to do even the smallest thing, like put on my shoes. actually i don't think ive ever mentioned this but i thought about Gnarly saying i could do it when i was sitting on the floor trying to make my fingers work with the shoe laces ... i thought my energy would never come back and i would always feel that lethargic, leaden feeling. but i didn't ... it went away!!! be patient with yourself. try to get as much movement into your day as possible, expose yourself to sunlight, treat yourself gently. keep fighting the good fight
great to here your working your recovery, you are doing an awesome job. Keep working your recovery and I know you will and you will make it out that dark hole we find ourselfs in. Keep working and keep working your clean time. Knew you could do this .And now its paying off. With much respect ,,,,,James
Hey Girl a big CUDOS for the willingness to go to A/A or N/A it is a big step and one of the best ones you can make.....my wife did not understand what being dope sick was....at the meeting they new and understood the support from the other people was literately a life saver methadone is a long long recovery time at 60 days out I thought I to had screwed up my brain forever but there where people there who had done it and assured me I would recover....they where right..the thing about N/A is they treat the addict ...it is alive and well inside our brains long after the pills stop it is these behaviors that need to be addressed and overcome to have a chance at a normal life...im a cured....far from it I will always be a work in progess you dont undo 35yrs of using over night but there is progress those around me see it even my wife.LOL just know with time and in a 12 step progam you can retrain yourself to live a happy joyful life without the need for a pill or what ever your vise is...going to your first meeting is outside of most peoples comfort zones that is normal just go and lissen you dont even have to speak once your comfortable you can share where your at in your recovery and what your struggling with....they will understand and be able to help....and that little bit of clarity is going to come back it just takes time...a lot has to to with the willingness to seak help and your willing if you have any questions about the progam please ask..............Gnarly.................................
Congrats on 3 weeks clean!! You are turning the corner already so keep it going!!
