So, what i wanted to do... is to reach out to parents of addicted children. I thought of addicts to be so weak before i was one. Because, just like you, I had no clue what it was like to be addicted. I said, "why dont you just stop taking the drug... boom done, concsious choice." No, no. For me, i stopped taking the drug i was on which was great. I stopped.... But the side effects are so cruel, even months and months after stopping. Going to work is near impossible. Or at the very least, impossible to even have a nice thought in your head the entire day. That goes for even sitting down in your comfort zone, "relaxed". It's very likely for one to just HATE LIFE. Just be miserable, absolutely miserable 24.7. Also, it is very difficult to sleep once off opiods. I'm 4 months off my DOC, and i still have sleep issues. And, I know... one little pill out there will SOLVE ALL MY CURRENT miserable problems.

For me, i wish i didnt have to put my parents through my addiction. I couldnt look them in the eye for more than 2 seconds. Believe me parents, we hate seeing you getting dragged down with us. We do not intend to do this. We are just plain caught up in something much stronger than human will. Now, I can only speak for myself. But, I know many addicts feel the same way about their parents as well. We love you.

You know, I just re-read this post. And I changed my mind about what I was really trying to do with this post....

Subconciously, I guess i thought "my mom or dad" would respond back. Because, i couldn't tell them to their face. For some reason i feel very uncomfortable talking to them about my addiction. So, i guess i tried talking to someone else's parent. Either way, this post is easily and understandably misguided. I tried to delete but it wont allow after a specific period of time.

I was just getting my own feelings out towards my own parents. Like a journal entry or whatever. When I wrote this, i was having a very emotional night. Getting off suboxone does this.... haha
