I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life until I started EMT class. That gave me the shove towards the field of medicine that I'm picking back up now that I'm getting clean. I rode on an ambulance, I went through paramedic school. I was fucking good. Life went along normally until one day, some bullshit happened, and then some more bullshit... and finally after a number of years of loyal service to that particular company, they fire me, for things that my manager was responsible for. That was a pretty hard blow from people that I considered my friends, so I turned to drugs. Did that for a couple years, and now I'm on the right path again and hoping to finally get my nursing degree.

First i want to say your thread here is going to help hundreads people who rome this site. Your story is great and i think so many can relate with you in one form or another. You show just because you went down the wrong path doesnt mean you cant get back on the right path if u try hard enough.

Oh congrats on everything and good luck.

Ditto what Bboy said completely. I am a little confused though. Did you START using opiates after you lost your job, or did you relapse again and get worse? Also, are you currently taking suboxone, or are you finished with it and just doing an aftercare kind of thing? Congrats on turning things around, and giving hope to the rest of us.
