I wanted to come back and give a brief update. I am on day 3 and doing well. I take one 8mg tablet of Suboxone in the morning and it seems to carry me through the day. Lately my focus has been on mending relatationships with family and extended family members. What was so obvious to so many of my loved ones, but not to me, was my personality change and how they saw something different, but I did not detect a thing. After taking time to appologize to them and sharing with them what I am doing to heal, many have said "I thought something was wrong, it just was not the same Mike". Well, I had no idea and thought I was the same guy, just alittle more fun....when actually, it was the other way around...lol. Wow, the things we learn.
Anyway, I'm seeking counseling once a week beginning today and more if necessary. Right now just trying to lay low, working on improving some relationships and getting thigs in order.
I'll touch base soon and give another update.
If anyone out there has come to this site seeking help. You have come to the right place. Take time to chat with some people here and they'll share with you on how to start getting your life back in order. I did that very thing on Friday of last week and within 5 days, I am 3 days off of taking 300mg of hydrocodone a day. smiling with my wife and looking forward to a much brighter future. If I can help anyone with questons, please look up my profile and email. I'll be happy to help if I can.
talk with you again soon.
