It's a good thing you have friends Vicki because I am not exactly "Best Seller Material" I mean well but have a hard time on paper. Apparently others can express themselves in the written word.
I will say this though...I have begun wearing "depends" since I met you. I could always hold it until I was subject to your "flavorful" sense of humor. Stay true to yourself. Love ya girl!
I am not going to sing to you again!!! That was private lol!
You have added so much to this site. MH is a better place because you are here!
Congards on all your clean time.
Congratulations Vicki,6 months WOW you are an inspiration to many.
Keep it going girl you rock
Whoo Hoo 6 months Vicki !! I'm so happy for you and Thank you for your contribution to the forum :) warmly lesa
Reading this thread brought tears to my eyes. Vicky congrats on 6 months!! What an accomplishment!! I'm just starting my journey and wonder how long it took for you to feel normal again? Do you go to NA or a counsellor? Just curious. Congrats and thanks for inspiring me :)
Back-2-life ~ How long until I felt normal? Honestly, I had to find a "new normal". I was addicted to those pills for 30 years(since I was a teenager) and really had no idea what to expect! I had to taper (I was hooked on barbiturates only) and stopped in Nov. 2009. I relapsed in April 2010 and then got really serious because relapse was awful!!
It took about two months to feel REALLY good. As though nothing had ever happened.
I see a therapist, I have a life coach who is like a sponsor, I have my doctor,my beautiful family,my volunteer work. I swim as much as I can. I needed it ALL. This just will not work without support! Good luck and I'll help you as much as I can;just ask!
