OK I went to my appointment. I had a blood test for blood borne viruses Hepatitis C and HIV and was also immunised against Hepatitis B. My results from the blood test will be available in 2 to 3 weeks although I suspect there is nothing to worry about, having never injected nor shared foil tubes with anyone who does so, although knowing me luck... well, best just not to tempt fate.
I have an appointment with the doctor at 9.30 in the morning tomorrow. I must be there at 9.00 so that they can take a urine analysis first and fill in some forms. I have requested a subutex script which I imagine will be due to start tomorrow. I will not be able to start this until the afternoon though, as I am currently high while typing this.
I will keep posting updates as anything develops, so that you can follow my attempt at cleaning up for the sake of my future, which sadly appears to be running away from me at the moment. Tomorrow is the day for change. Real change.
I have to also say that I am very impressed and pleased with the service that has been offered in my local area. It is very easy and efficient to obtain the help I needed. The area I live in has a particularly high level of substance abuse issues and as a result the services available to people who want to turn their back on such a lifestyle are abundant and free. I am very grateful for the NHS for this as if I was in the USA I would quite literally be, for want of a better word, fucked.
Take care all,
I'll keep you posted.
