Hello Amithy

Thanks for the encouragement. Smiles

I have read your story and am so happy for you that you have a plan! Best, best , best wishes for success in detox. Although my kids are much older (adults), I miss being "there" for them. They tell me they are proud of me for battling the oxycodones. Your children will tell you the same some day when they understand it all.

No one wants to be in the position we are in, but hopefully, we can turn it into something good and be parents that show our kids that problems CAN be overcome.

The depression that comes from being ON the pills and the depresion coming OFF the pills stinks. I just want you to know that 10 years ago, I suffered from such deep clinical depression that even the doctors did not think I would come out of it. But I did! I just mention this because I read that you have depressive thoughts. Others here have talked about the same thing concerning drug use. So keep the faith that you will overcome that part.

Again, I wish you hope and prayers that you have a positive experience in detox. I pray for many arms around you to keeep any fear away.

Please post again so I can follow your progress. We are partners on this board, each of us together.

If I could reach thru this computer I think I would hug, cry & pray over every single person here. I have found more compassion here than I ever imagined. It is so COMFORTING to know that there are people at hand that are either BATTLING this addiction or have OVERCOME the addiction. It fills my heart with joy. I know my plan will work because I am going to make it work. Do I get scared? OF COURSE! But, I do know that there is another life. I rack my brains trying to remember it, but I do know that it is there.
How wonderful that your kids are aware of your situation and you can pose as such a tremendous role model for them. I have told my 8yr old daughter that I am sick from the pills that the doctor has given me. My husband was upset at this at first and said AMY< DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT KIDS TALK!! I told him YES! I do know that. But, I am not afraid of what OTHERS think of me. I only want to protect my daughter and if she knows that she can talk to her Momma about ANYTHING without judgement or prejudice. My father has been a SPEED addict for my entire life. He NEVER talked to me about ANY of it until after I had gotten strung out and got off that in 1998. What a difference it COULD have made if he had opened up to me! I am NOT making that mistake with MY children. They will KNOW that life is HARD & alot of times its not FAIR. But, we are all CHILDREN of GOD. He will bring us through ANYTHING we face. That NOTHING IN LIFE LEARNED WAS LEARNED THE "EASY WAY", everything comes with a consequence. The girls will know that their mother loved them soooo much that she went thru HELL & BACK to be there for them for their entire life. That I put them before my self and my own self pity and made sacrifices that some would just turn a blind eye to! They will know to meet whatever problem they face HEAD ON and not take the easy way out like I have. At least, this is what I hope they learn. And its going to take years to teach them the values & virtues that I want them to possess. But, I knw I can do it if I am CLEAN & CLEAR HEADED!
I know that we can all do this. I believe that everyone who WANTS it CAN DO IT. Also believe that there is power in prayer. I signed up with the TJ LOWERY prayer site and listed my prayers on there. Doesnt hurt to have prayer.
Anyways, this site is now my home away from home. I will dedicate my time & efforts *like the others here* to serve as a reminder of what can be done. And when you guys here from me when I get out of DETOX you will all get to see my DAILY progress. Might miss the ROUGH STUFF, but what I can remember of it I will surely post my first day back!:wave:
