Congrats on 1 week James!!  Now start making those contacts with counseling/therapy.
Well I'm doing great no opiates atall I'm struggling with my counciling that's hard .Dealing with my childhood.im not close to my family I find it hard to deal with family. I was brought up in approved school from the age of twelve. So not close to them I was in hospital for a week and it helped I just take meds to stop me getting depressed so that's a good thing. Just had to say this Hope everyone's doing great at medhe lol James
