Hello to all my beautiful grandchildren. I hope you are all doing well. I'm fine, thank God! I'm 74. Will be 75 in Nov. and my Dr. gave me a clean bill of health(for 74, that is).

I stopped by to say "hello"" and see how my Grands are doing. I think of all of you often & whisper a little prayer that none of you relapse. If you do, don't feel ashamed or weak. Tell us or tell someone that can help you get on the road again. Please do that. Promise? I don't know why, I just felt like I had to write this. If it's for someone who is going through something, I care. I love all of you.

I will check in periodically. Big hugs from me.

Don't give in & don't give up.

Grandma Queenie

Hello our Queen, so good to hear from you as always. It is so important what you ve said.
The fear and shame or guilt of relapse will only keep secret the need for help. We all have to
stay in the light to succeed I believe.
Great massage Queenie.
Thanks for thinking of us all and being a great example of recovery...no matter what!!!

Glad for check up went so well. Must be a great feeling . Stop by more often when you can. We miss you..

Razor. .

Thanks Queenie for dropping in and saying hi. Always good to hear from you.

You're right re the relapse thing. Relapse / illicit drug use rates for people on Suboxone, especially ex-heroin addicts, are still pretty high. Nowhere near the 95% of people who attempt abstinence, but still around 50%. So it's likely it's happening, whether we hear about it or not.

Thank u Queenie!!!

My grandmother just turned 84 with a clean bill of health, her birthday was Saturday. She still gets out and cuts her grass and everything I can do she does. So grateful that ur healthy also!

What u said about feeling like u needed to post that, I understand what ur talking about. Sometimes u just feel that someone needs it and it's put on ur mind for a reason, thank u for that.

Hi Grandma Queenie. I'm new to the Forum & clean from my DOC since Good Friday, April 14th. I've read your posts here often and am so glad to know that someone with life's experiences are here watching over us.

I don't know what the future holds for me, but with Suboxone I have a feeling it's going to be a good clean life on life's own terms. I have so much to learn, so thanks for posting. :)

Aww Amy, so sorry sweetie.

Keep her close to your heart and she will always be with you. When did she pass away? I hope she was with you longer than my mom & dad were with me. My mom was 62 and my dad 67. Mom passsed away Sept. 1985. Dad 3 months later dec 31st. 11:55 pm. Yeah, I know and I was an only child.

They say good people are born in November. Well, we know there are 2. (wink)

Love you, Queenie
