Hi everyone! I was on here not too long ago. at the time I was abusing MANY pain killers, at once. It was out of control, as much as I said I was IN control. My family, stepped in and sent me to rehab. As ticked off as I was for them putting me there, it was the BEST thing. I put my family through pure HE double toothpicks. Now I am a recovering addict, not a addict.. I'm 48 days sober (I think)
As some recovering addicts have discovered, I also learned that my DOC was masking a case of ADHD. I can't concentrate, etc.. So over the weekend, my husband take a "stimunlant" to help him with school. he said, Hey.. take one.. it will give you energy and help you concentrate. SO... I did. he was right. I did feel good.. Normal. I have had trouble since I have been out of rehab with energy, etc. So I called my Dr got an appt and discussed the options with him. in the mean time, my husband said to me yesterday do not take anymore until we go to the Dr and see what he says. This morning, I got up took a half (not even thinking) about what Ihave actually just done. When i saw my husband a bit ago he asked me If I took one, i said no. He asked me after we got out of the Dr. appt and I said, yes. Now, I am (according to him) a recovering addict who can't be trusted, i am back to my old ways, and he completely went off. I'm not saying he has no reason to be upset. absolutely. I was wrong. I admitted I was wrong, and will take the necessary steps to fix this. my problem is what I have actually done. It's like he is dwelling on this. I HAVE to move on. I need to continue my recovery after this "slip" I can't figure out that if I lied about putting gas in the car, would he be just as angry? lying was something that I was A PRO at during my using stages. I'm not perfect.. I don't know what to do here.. I can only be responsible for me.. not him.
