Cathy,

When I came here in March you were one of the first people to greet me, you see my DOC happens to be Oxy as well. I was snorting 8-10 of the 80mgs per day, but I remember you saying, "If I can do it anyone can do it!" Believe it or not I hung onto those words as the bowels of hell took over my life for a few weeks. I'm happy to say that because I found Med Help and because you were nice enough to give me your story, I'm still Oxy Free today!!

Congraduations on 200 days clean!! I can only hope that I'm able to post that I'm clean for that length of time. Thank you for your kindness and I know how most of the time you never even know that you helped a stranger, but today I wanted you to know just how much you helped this stranger!!

Hi Cathy ,
This is Gator .... That is such a wonderful piece to read this AM....I see you postted it a few days ago but I have always been late all my life....I know you will forgive me......But the wonderful thoughts I'm sending are for always.... So you keep up th good work and that is what it is WORK.....  You have to work at this to make yourself who you wish to be.... And you are doing a swell (Like that 1950's word?), job.....
God Bless Cathy,    Gator

Cathy,

You are truly an inspiration to all of us. You always have such supportive and caring advice. You have also been there for me more than a few times when I really needed it. And I;m sure so many others can say the same thing.

Congratulations on 200 days!!

Love,
Melissa
