Thanks for sharing your story, Brittany. Unfortunately, I didn't understand your post very well because it had little to no capitalization and punctuation. I'm not a grammar nazi by any means, but I do require a little help reading something that is so lacking in definitive sentences. I thought it was unusual that you hadn't gotten any responses on your two posts, but it may be that other members are having the same trouble as I am.

It seems that you are stable on subutex now, which is great. I couldn't tell whether you are currently pregnant or not. Often times doctors will only prescribe subutex to pregnant women and that's it! Stick with the clinic and the sub, which makes opiate addiction so much easier to deal with. I wish you the best!

I certainly wasn't trying to be offensive about it. Lack of punctuation just makes it harder for me to read. I'm sure that's because I'm an old fogie! :D There are obviously no official rules on this forum about it. I was just asking to help me out. I'm sure you would laugh at the way I text because I use all grammar rules when I do that too! Lol!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Have you found out if you're having a boy or a girl? You're being a really good mom by keeping your addiction under control! Is your first child a boy or a girl? There is supposed to be a much lower chance that your baby will have withdrawal symptoms from suboxone than methadone or other opiates. Still, I would read posts under the Pregnancy and Suboxone section and be prepared for what can happen if your baby does happen to be born addicted. You should know your rights and what to be on guard for.

I hope you update us on how you're doing, Brittany.
