My thoughts....

Jul 01, 2008 - 5 comments

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday was such a rotten day but thanks to all my friends here I am back to myself today. When i found this forum back in December i thought i would drop in, ask some questions, get some help and call it a day. Boy, was i wrong!!! Finding this forum is the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I have received so much help and support and made some true friends here. Some i hope for life! Who would have ever thought! Not me thats for sure. I am 7 months clean today! 7 months!! I still have a hard time believing it. I struggled for so many years trying to rid myself of these pills. Like they say..you have to really want it and this time around i guess i was truelly ready. Its like a complete circle, when i first came i was in need of help and now i am in a place in my life were i can offer that same help back to those who need it. It feels so good to help someone when they are in need. Obviously i still have my days but i come here and "cry" to all of you and you help me get threw the day. I feel as though i owe so many of you so much.
I also now that someday i will really be in need of pain meds. This i think is going to be my next lesson in life. Learning to take back control over something that had such control over me for so long. How? I dont know. When i get there i will lean on all of you support.
Thank you all again! I feel as though i owe you all so much!
hugs to you all,
Jen

Jen...One day does make a difference and so does some sleep! I am proud you made it through yesterday...I knew you would. You are an asset to this forum. I felt the same way when I found it. Now when I am having a hard time or need to vent or something I run to the computer and it's funny b/c my husband totally understands what I am doing.

Congrats on your 7months!!

Jen,

I'm so glad you're in a better place today. My heart went out to you yesterday. It is strange how everything comes full circle. You came here looking for help and now you are so great at giving help and advice. This forum and people like you are truly a Godsend and that's what helps me when I need it.

Big hugs!!
Melissa

Wow congrats, one day I'll be on my 7th month but right now it's day to day for me.  You are great and you have to wake up everyday and look in the mirror and say "wow!  I did it, I'm adorable and a great person"!!!
