Hi...

4 months is great and soon you'll be hitting the 6 month mark...a milestone from what I read in here.  Congrats on your time and I totally agree with you on exercising; really helped me focus on something else.

Are you still 'worried' or do you feel comfortable that pain meds won't become part of your life any longer?

Thx,

Guy

Woke up and realize I really have been on this ride for 4 months.....floridaguy...i know i will never get back to the life I was leading and there are many reasons why...I am not going to say i will never ever mess up...cos I never say never....but I am trying very had to "Believe in Forever" again  I used to believe in it when i was young, and a hurtful, drawn out divorce that left me with a big hole where myself used to be , made me think that nothing lasts forever no matter how bad i want it too...but i am trying very hard to change my opinion and hold on tight to good things, than I can control, like being clean , forever

Hi Again,

I'm a firm believer is what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  I feel for you on the divorce as I had my relationship ups and downs but you are the person you should be thinking about and it seems you are; getting off meds, exercising, etc.  Life is a journey and were here for the ride :-)...I strive for and look for the 'ups' and I think you do too.

Thx for posting...when I was kinda lurking (sounds funny), I read numerous posts of yours and enjoyed them.

A short inspiration for you...

May the wind always be at your back and the sun shine on you and light your way.

Sincerely,

Guy
