I'm gonna make this quick, but the other half of my background is over in My Addiction Story.
http://www.suboxforum.com/nurse-addiction-story-link-intro-inside-t11803.html

This is a brief summary of my relevant information that isn't tied to addiction.

I've lost four family members and two very close friends to heroin, specifically. This, combined with my family's tendency to binge eat, has led me to pursue a life of medicine and closely related fields.

I have my own issues that I may tack on to here later, but suffice to say I have experience in medicine (addiction and otherwise, mostly psychopharm), counseling and I worked for a popular weight loss service, so:

If you have any of you happen to have weight loss/nutrition questions, I can usually field those, or direct you to a free resource that is more knowledgable than myself.
I should also mention that I have some pretty decent experience with the endocrine system & augmentation (women, I can't help you with as much though), as it relates to weight, muscle, mood disorders, addiction, abuse, etc.

I hope to find equally medicine-oriented people to chat with and learn from. I think that would be a really healthy thing for me to cultivate, considering all my real-life relationships that focus on medicine revolve around me playing doctor/counselor/nutritionist... and most of those people are in early recovery, if at all.

Oh - I know only a fraction of people read intros, but just as a heads up, I try to bold the important parts of my messages for those who just care to skim, or don't have time to read everything but want to help/reply.

Hello Nurse Miel,
Great having you here. I look forward to the rest of your story and your helpful knowledge. Sorry to read of your family and friends.
Opiate Addiction and substance use disorder know no boundaries thats for sure.Ive known several myself since joining recovery.

This is why so many of us here are grateful for Buprenorphine. It just saves lives.

Hope to hear from again soon Nurse M..Welcome....

A.men. I'd be in a very different place if I wasn't lucky enough to find a doctor, have insurance, all the necessary requirements to get treatment.

I wish they could fly little rescue planes over the US and drop packs of Suboxone & naltrexone everywhere so everyone has access. (As Dr. Jeunig (sp?) said, and I'm paraphrasing, diversion is mostly to others with addiction and more importantly, there have been very few deaths due to Suboxone diversion - and all(?) of those have involved another respiratory depressant...
