So I relapsed on Sunday and Monday. Am sitting here feeling awful waiting as long as I can to take my subs because I have experienced PW and it sucks.

I can't believe I relapsed, I am so upset, after so long what was I thinking??

Just thought I would reach out and get some support, this is the hardest part for me, while I have only had to do it 5 times (had to have 3 surgeries in between) in the last 4 years since I started as I am sure all of you know it really bites to have to wait...

The surgery was the worst, I wish they would come up with another way to deal with surgery other than having to stop subs, go on heavy opiates, then get back on subs. And you feel awful to begin with because you just had surgery, there is always a time when they stop the opiates and you are still in pain and you have to wait to go back on subs.

I guess I should not complain, so many of my friends and my family have passed away from this disease, I have been given a chance here that they did not have.

I just really don't want to go into PW and I am scared as hell to start my subs and trying to wait as long as possible....I haven't been able to work today, and my anxiety is through the roof.

Just thought I would reach out.

Hey Jena,

Sounds like you have bn though a ordeal.
Well, its ok. You will be ok.
You know now to do this. That waiting thing, I never had to do it.
Got lucky I guess in the beginning.
Relapse is common. It happens.
You will move past it too...
Just wanted to give ya a pep talk .
Wer all in this togather.

Ive never had to stop sub treatment. Not yet anyhow. Ive read how hard it can be after surgery.

Best of luck to you, and im sure others will be along too..

Thanks Razor,
I think sometimes because of the surgeries I get restless, I was dumb this time though, I allowed someone back into my life that I shouldn't have and I thought for sure I could deal with it and I couldn't.
Oh Well, its all about learning something new about yourself and if you don't go through the hard times you don't have the pleasure of getting to the other side.
Thanks for the support, sounds like you are doing great!!
Keep up the awesome work! Don't use me as an example, I am not typical, many many people out there start subs and never have a problem, you are one of them, and that is great.
Thanks,
Jen
