    DAY 79…

    Not much to really report here. I'm pretty much the same as before. Been having lots of back pain but the docs are giving me medicine for that. I think it's from laying around so much. I've tried to get up and walk a little but I'm just flat worn out.

    I'm getting my treatments everyday just not on the weekends although I had the nurse come yesterday because i wasn't feeling good and needed my medicine. It was good, I then went to bed for a long time. Slept most of the afternoon and then night and got up early today which is usually the opposite of what I do. I usually sleep during the days.

    Anyways, hope all is well. I will be having to go through withdrawals again because of the morphine they are giving me but that's not usually so bad. I can handle it. I will wean off of it when the time comes. This is almost my second full week of treatment. I have about 4 or so more weeks to go before the infection heals or so I'm told.

    Hope everyone else is doing good. I was supposed to see my guy this weekend but he ended up working all weekend. Bummer. So, hopefully this week or weekend. Long distance sucks but I wouldn't trade him for the world. It's been a great six weeks with him even if we don't get to see each other a lot. He has some time off coming up in April so we just have to be patient.

    Take care all. Will update more later when I'm feeling better. I have to go to work today. But, I'm supposed to have two interviews this week. We'll see.

    Well, I read some of your thread, and trying to read it all. Let me start by saying great job for getting to day 79. I believe you got this thing whooped.

    So, I guess I am showing up a little late for the party. But Its really awesome, that you served, our country. You are a awesome person. Ye deserve and have very much earned the right to be drug free.

    I know, all to well, how hard it is to kick Heroin. I have probably kicked it, a few dozen times. it hurts, but it goes away.

    I'm so sorry for all the health problems you are having. I know how tough it can be, to deal with medical problems, and be kicking dope. Ouch. I mean kicking dope, van be a bear, on its own.

    I just wanted to stop in and thank you for all your support. You have been helping me, and giving me such great advice. Even in your own, time of need. You truly are an inspiration. Much Love Roaddog....

    Mel,

    I have just got up to speed with where you at. First a big congratulations on getting off heroin. And also the ciggies. I just can't seem to switch to the ecig. You are bloody amazing :)

    So sorry for all the things you have to deal with. Glad you are getting your physical health dealt with. I hope you can get decent treatment for your PTSD.

    So, so sorry you have lost friends in such violent circumstances. I just don't know how anyone can deal with that. You really are being tested.

    I want to add to the chorus of DFers thanking you for this thread. There are several like yours and they really are invaluable because they show others that anything is possible if you really want it and keep trying. But at the same time, it is not usually easy. My moods and emotions were raw coming off methadone and I don't have to deal with a thousandth of what life has thrown at you.

    I think of you often. You are beautiful and amazing and inspirational xxxxx

    Hi Mel- Sorry to hear you're sick, and that it involves your heart. I wish you godspeed, and that you recover fully (sans surgery) and return to your life, and to us her, very soon. I know it seems as though your troubles will never be behind you, but that is not the case. Get through this, and you'll have built the character (at least that's what my dad would have said, and he was always right!) to conquer and cope with any future challenges that come your way.

    Love to you, B
