I haven't been on the forum in a while. I have gone through a lot of very stressful times lately, one being Foreclosure and recently moving. So that in itself has been difficult and depressing. However, I have moved and am starting to feel better about this and my life in general. I finished my second masters degree last month.

Above all else, my sobriety from suboxone has been the biggest hurdle ever in my life. The thought is always there, but the happiness that I have at this point in my life is not worth the cheap feelings from opiates. I have to remind myself of this daily.

I hope that everyone in the forum is doing well in whatever part of their life you are trying to overcome. I am hopeful that this new year will bring about a much healthier and happier one than last.

In April I will be one year clean from subs. Time is really the culprit for better times. It's hard to fathom that at 3 months, 6 months, and 8 1/2 months...but it is getting better and is much better than before. I am optimistic that things will continue to get better as long as I am opiate free..

Take care of yourself and never give up...you will make it...

WOW, good for you SherGonnastop!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 266 days clean, that's awesome!!!

You're absolutely right, it does continue to get better. Learning how to live life on life's terms can be quite a shock to the system and then throw wd and some PAWS on top of all of that and it's quite a struggle, but we can make it, we absolutely can make it.

I'm so glad you dropped by and updated us, thanks so much.

I'm sorry about the foreclosure and having to move, that had to be very, very difficult for you. But, you maintained your sobriety and you continue to move forward, good for you!!

Not Living To Your Fullest Potential. That is what is so bad about opiates.
