K-I-M-B-E-E-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YAY...Great to hear from you-im not kidding-i was thinking of you last night and here you are...i love that!!!How the heck are you,lady...
Where do i begin?
Everything is pretty good-minus the cabin fever/almost daily headaches/and menapause..lol..i guess you could say..im a mess..i feel like that right now-
Especially since im so sluggy..due to the weather.
UGH!.
How much are you on(sub)????
I have been doing tons of research on suboxone lately-and its a mixed bag of info about coming off.Mostly bad news-some good-its making me more anxious about coming off-the 2mgs-hold me-but by morning im antsy..so i haven't adjusted totally to 2 mgs-and from what ive gathered now-2 mgs is still fairly potent-I was on 8 mgs most of last year-switching to 4 mgs-was easy.
According to my hubby-it takes about a month to adjust to 2 mgs.
I have been getting hot flashes-cold-than really hot-fluish-headaches-just not really on top-like i was.But im also dealing w/ mena!So..its hard to tell-
So...What happened to you that you ended up in the ER?It must of been really bad-(headache)..did they give you pain meds?
Do you think its from the sub???
I hope you are ok..I miss you..im glad you stopped by..what did the drs. say?Did they do any tests?
So-i can feel the change in dosage-but its not too bad-like i said-2 mgs. is still a decent amount of med-sounds small-but its not.
But ive been reading alot lately about people coming off this med..and its not gonna be easy.
And..for some reason-2 years into maintainence treatment-people seem to have adverse reactions-and it turns on them..(like the dope???)..
So-im probably doing this in the right time span-but im not psyched for coming off totally-cos of the supposed looong w/d symptoms-altho not as intense like c/t-but extreme lethargy-and all the other stuff-
But on the positive side-after a few attempts at stopping-using very low doses for a couple months-then skipping doses people are successful at coming off-and not relapsing.
Its differant for everyone-so i guess you just gotta go for it-and keep trying.
Sounds like fun???
Hey-as long as it works-and you are comfortable staying w/ it-and your body can deal w/ it..whats the rush???
I mean-im doing it-cos my dr. wants me off it-and thats the catalyst for my detox-(and i feel kinda shi***+want out)but i also have the menapause and weight gain..
Enough of this...im boring..
Where and what happened to banker???She was such an intregal part of this board-and then disappeared...it was like she was here all the time and gone.
Same w/ Michelle-tho she does check in on occassion-shes been dealing w/health issues-cancer..Goddess bless her! and has maintained sobriety for 7 MONTHS!!!Miss the girls alot!
Give me a quick update when you have a chance..i really loved hearing from you and thank you for the kind words-im just trying to do whats nessecery to my recovery-i can't be a junky anymore..im gonna be 46 yrs old..its differant-using needles..copping heroin..its just getting undignified at my age..gotta grow up sometime.
When i was using-i felt like a kid..(mid life crisis..lol)..now i realise..helloooo...its getting kinda ugly..no hustle-what am i gonna do-be going into detoxs when im 60 yrs old.
No offense to anyone-i just can't live w/ the stigma or deal w/ that whole lifestyle anymore.
Suboxone gave me the time to look at my world-and it really isn't very cool-
I got a son..i don't want to leave him...i don't want to OD..and leave that legacy.
Therapy also really helped me-get aware/look deeper/changed me-and gave me some coping skills to deal w/ life..
No judgements-on anyones choices of how they live-or what they put in there bodies..i know better-and i also know "never say never"...
I m just ready to accept i got responsibilities-and i want to live.
Check in-honey..
I wish you the best of everything-and i hope you are ok-feel better!
xoxoxo
Goddess Bless!

WOW, That is so weird that you were thinking of me last night, thats kinda the feeling I had, ya know, had to check in on everyone that has been on the sub about as long as me. I am still on 6mgs and it looks like thats where I am gonna stay. You have me a little worried about the 2 year thing, what do you mean it turns on you like dope? I have been on it for about 19 months now and I do feel a little differant, its hard to explain, I just feel differant than before.And yes the headaches are still pretty bad, but I have always suffered from headaches so I dont know the differance. The E.R. experiance was awful! They treated me like a typical junkie, and they had no idea what sub. was. I felt so humiliated, of course they thought I was wasted so they drug tested me and of couse nothing came up, but they still treated me really badly. I am seriously thinking of filing a report, although I dont think it will help. Its just something that I dont think will ever leave me, the labeling of being an addict. What kind of research are you doing on the sub.? I have looked but havent found anything new. I am glad to know that you are not having to hard of a time tapering, that is incouraging, I just feel like the longer I stay on it the harder its gonna be to stop. Is you husband off completly? Do you have the energy that you need daily? Thats where I always fail after recovery, is the lack of energy and fatique, and of course the depression. Like I said you are an inspiration, I am so happy for you, you must be a very strong woman. I too, are in my fortys and I know what ya mean about getting to old for this crap, enough already, I have put my kids through hell. They deserve a sober mom, I just hope when I do get off this med. I never ever have to experience addiction for as long as I live! But like you said never say never. We just have to do the best we can do and hope things go better and that we have learned from our mistakes. Its so hard hard being an addict! Please keep posting your progress, I am going to try and keep up a little better, I have just been so busy these days, its hard sometimes. Hang in there, I just know your going to do great!!
