    One more day until I see the suboxone doctor. Looking forward to it all. Happy Veteran's Day to me and all of my fellow vets. Today's a special day. I am going down to the West LA VA to hang out with some of the friends I made at the hospital while i was there. They are supposed to be having a barbecue down there for all of us to enjoy. This is the first sober event I will be attending to in a long time. Things are getting better everyday. I will write more later. Thanks to those who have been supportive. There's a lot of great stuff to do today. I will write more later. Have a good day everyone.

    Enjoy the sober day with others you have met. It's the best natural medicine we have.

    And do take away one thing important thing TLSJ said over and over in his post: you are by no means a loser. You are a smart lady who has had a lot of bad luck and is now on her way to getting on with a good life. And do not let anyone--or your head--tell you different.

    I have eaten at a lot of different McDonald's fast food restaurants... There are two close to where I live. One I WONT go to, I would rather go home and eat Ramen noodles. The other is farther away, but I drive there and its decent. All rehabs are not the same (unfortunately) Some are WAY better than others. The same goes for all 12 step meetings...some are WAY better than others. There IS some positive force working in your life.... I hope you take the suboxone AND the rehab. TLSJ has some valid points..please don't feel defensive..its NOT a personal attack.

    I agree with some of these lasts posts and especially the quote above. Not only does it do her no good to coddle and ENABLE her emotionally, it is very dangerous!! It gives her permission to change nothing and keep relapsing.

    When she disappeared for those few weeks, it honestly crossed my mind she may have OD'd and died. At this stage of her addiction that is very much a possibility if she continues to relapse. I have known several people who died from this drug in the process of kicking it and relapsing. Their bodies couldn't take it anymore and their tolerance was unpredictable.

    So, NO, it's not okay that you relapsed. It's a big red flag that your treatment plan is not working. Either 2 weeks in the hospital were not enough, or you need subs, or more of a structured support network and most likely all of the above, but what you have been doing, despite your best efforts, is obviously not enough to keep you sober. I want you to feel supported here Mel, and loved too, but I also want you to live through this.

    I think you need long-term treatment. 3-9 months. A good enough amount of time to get sober, on meds, work through your medical and emotional issues, and devise a solid plan for your recovery.
