Root!!!

This is like a high school reunion!!! LOL!! :bouncing: It is so wonderful to hear from you....and to know how well your life has gone! Of course, I cannot believe that a year has passed since you were writing--but what a good year it's been for you. I remember your struggles so clearly....and, now, you sound so happy. I am so glad you checked in. :)

A few of your buddies still pop onto the board now and again--and the good news is that everyone you know, who I know, has been moving on in some positive way. Let's hope your post brings them out!!

I am on Subutex now (I remember you had a bad reaction to the Suboxone?) But I've been on it since the beginning of the year--and I am so happy and relieved to say, that thanks to this drug, I haven't touched an oxy or a hydro!! And.....best of all...is that I have no desire to do so!

Doctors are now more aware that "less is more" when it comes to the dosage and length of time you stay on Sub. So, many of us, starting it now, are starting on smaller does....using it to let our minds recouperate....and then beginning to taper off it. I'm at 6 mg....and moving down very slowly. (You may hear from a Mr. Grateful, who is doing a quicker taper....and is doing well.) :) I had no idea that Sub would become such a controversial drug re dosage, etc.--but it certainly has been a life saver for so many of us.

You are now in the best place of all--off EVERYTHING!! :D And it's great to know that you're getting all that support. Please keep checking in from time to time to remind us all that there IS a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Stay well! And my very best to you,

your old pal, Lynn :jester:
