GREAT NEWS Gaz !!!!!!
I hope you can be her strength...everyone deserves to be loved !!!!
Will be looking forward to your updates :)
Actually got to the drug centre Fri, seems like she does really want to be clean. Over to the docs followed by the drug centre again Monday, hopefully anyway.
Thanks for all your advice & support.
If/when we sort the subbies programme I'll let y'all know
Gaz That's fantastic news! Treatment will help her physically and mentally. Just be warned if she takes the suboxone route that she only stay on it for a couple months. It is made up of a opiate blocker and an OPIATE! She can't get high off it. If used correctly it will be to her advantage. For myself, I was on it way too long. Err on my doctor and myself. After a year when I wanted to get off it, it took almost a year to taper. Then I did have bad, not horrible, wds. I hope that helps a bit. Good luck and keep us update :)
What ever you choose to do...just know we're here for you.
There is no right or wrong , time will tell where you need to go with this relationship
my best to you & she :)
P.S- You have a great opportunity to protect yourself right now. Your plan is going to the drug center tomorrow. The addict's mantra is "I'll do it tomorrow." I mean, what is stopping her doing it today?
So just be prepared that this may not workout the way you plan tomorrow. Have a back up plan for yourself. And get to a meeting!!!
Gaz- you "detach w/ love" to preserve your sanity. That means, you can love her w/o being involved in her addiction.
You see how you were ready to give up on humanity? That's life w/ an addict (a using one.) It's called cunning, baffling, and powerful. That's what addiction is. Again, for your sanity, because that's what matters here, please please go to an Alanon or naranon meeting. I've been in alanon and it will completely change your thinking. You can feel sane. I can't say this strongly enough.
