Hi everyone, It's Queenie. Stopping by to say "Hello" to all my grandchildren. I am doing fine. I hope all of you are doing well. I have been reading some of the new posts and I see there are some new people here that are very serious about staying clean. To them, I say, please keep trying, don't give in to temptation. Think back to how it was and not just the good highs. Think about running out of pills, money, withdrawal. Think of the entire problem. Is it worth it?

I am on 8 mgs of Suboxone daily. I started at 32 mgs. four and a half years ago and I've had no relapses, so I'm kind of proud of that.

Hey, do we not have the Chat Room anymore? I tried to get in & I get an error. I would love to chat with anyone that wants to vent. I would be more than happy to listen and give advice if I can.

Well, take care my sweets. I will check in once in a while. I love you all so very much.
Don't give up and don't give in.
Love, Queenie

Hi Queenie!

I bet I could qualify as a daughter instead of a granddaughter! My own mom would have just turned 73 and I am 44 years young!

I have the good fortune of being married to an old guy, though! My hubby turns 61 in a few days and his two children are married and have 5 kids between them, ranging in age from 9 months to 8.5. I am happy to be a premature Gammy though. My 17 year old son never wants to sit on my lap or cuddle anymore!

By the way, hubby is 2/3 of the way through radiation for prostate cancer and just got a corticosteroid shot into his cervical spine. Both arms keep falling asleep along with shooting pain, so we're hoping the shot works! He has vicodin around the house all the time and I'm not tempted at all!! Thank you buprenorphine!!

Has your health been OK lately? Was it diabetes that caused you to lose your legs? My memory is spotty there.

If I knew how to include a picture in this message I could show you my grandkids. I know there are people who know how to do that, but I don't. Sigh...

Take good care and I hope you find lots to celebrate in this holiday season! :)

Amy

Hi Queenie!

You know the red carpet is always out for you here all the time. There just aren't too many "old timers" left anymore. Lilly has returned and we mods are very grateful for her knowledge and input. And congrats on no slipping! I can't say that because I did abuse Norco again after my last surgery. It won't happen again because the Buprenorphine just will not let your brain enjoy an opiate high. Even three weeks off it! It was a waste of pills and a danger to my liver for even trying to catch a buzz. Suboxone really takes hold and doesn't let go for a long time. In my case anyway. Some others will disagree with my statement but it's true for me.

Amy, I really hate to hear about your hubby and what he's going through. He and I share a lot in common as you already know. He sure got lucky with you though. I wish my wife was 44! Don't get me wrong. I have no complaints as my good wife actually looks like she's in her 40's. A little help from her special doctor keeps her face nice and young. :wink: :wink:

I'm going to have to call you and walk you through on how to post a picture!

Hi guys,
Amy, I sincerely hope your hubby is better. My prayers go out to him.

I lost my legs due to Vascular disease..

I would love to see a picture of your grandkids. I have 2 grandsons and I couldn't be prouder.

Take care,

Love Queenie
