Wow 69 days free from DOC, 48 days free from Sub!

It's amazing to look back and have to count the days on the calender. For those of you going through it, hang in there. Each day will get easier, you will get stronger. Sime of the things that are helping me are faith, counsel and the constant reminding of myself that I am free. No more chasing pills, no more counting pills, no more pills, pills, pills.lol. I have been in alot of stressful situations with family health problems, an out of state move, etc. And I have found (for me) that if I have a sluggish day, dont get everything I wanted to do done, I go with it. I used to grab a pill. I'm learning to allow each day to just be that. There are some days I cant be superwoman, so I'm not. I try to take the pressure off of me, and just be. Please don't give up. This battle is a "good" fight. And sooo worth it. And I wanna thank all of you that have helped me get here. You all are amazing! :)

Well, going through a bit of a rough spot with my neck issues, but no pills! Just taking each day as it comes. Lol, right now I'm laying on an ice pack, posting from my phone. I am really glad things are going well for you. Life happens, whether we're addicts or not. Best to face things with a clear head!

Hugs,
