And it's just going to get better and better from here. I really feel like I have regained alot of my self confidence in the last two days and I don't feel like I have to sit in my house and hide like a hemit. I want to get out and go fishing or take a walk or go on a hike or ride bikes or just simply sit outside in a chair or on a blanket and enjoy the day. Wow I am so happy for my life and the people that surround me everyday it truly is a blessing. This medicine has finally gave my life back that I have so dessperaly wanted back.

Wow, that's great! I'm amazed to hear you are doing so good so soon. For some people it takes a little longer time before they feel as good as you do. I wish I would have known about this site back in November when I was detoxing. I had a difficult time trying to get treatment for Suboxone. It was like going through an obstacle course before I finally, actually got my first prescription! I'm still very happy for you and glad to have been any help. I'm new at this site but I've learned a lot before getting here. You know... attitude means a lot and you have a really good attitude. Gratitude means a lot also, it helps in having a good attitude. You express a lot of gratitude for the support you got from everyone and that's a good thing. I'm proud of you and I'm sure your family is proud of you too. Enjoy you new life!

Hello ,u Dear Friend,
I have thought about you over the last few days when I was awake you were on my mind, Thursday I had to be away to do the friend who died, I sing again today, I am just so happy it makes me so uplifted to know that you are feeling better! I know I PM you a lot but it was because of genuine concern!
Wow, way to go! I sincerely wish that I could have your optimistic view as well! I went down on my benzo and cut off several different meds only to find myself in a ton of pain, back on more meds, and now battling severe depression without taking the Abilify, something that I'll probably have to go back on as I can barely get out of bed. Nonetheless, I really am happy for you, and hope to see the sun as well through the rain and clouds. You've made a great choice, and am sincerely glad to see you doing well!
Uppy, I am so glad you updated and are fine. I know it was a rough ride for you to get to this point. Will you _PLEASE_ check your private questions by going to your profile, click questions and answers, then you should see a text that says, my private questions. I have a feeling I am no the only one who PQ'ed you, I know you are feeling great and are enjoying your new lease on life, but there is some info I sent you you could possibly need later, and I wanted to make sure you got it.

Uppy, I am moving on the fast pace I have to be back at the church building this evening, there is the funeral that I am suppose to sing at, I am in hopes that things are continuing in the positive direction, if it seems that I don't care please understand that I have even forgotten medicines today, I will check back on you once I am back in I know it will be before 8:30 PM it's 3PM and once this is over they are going to the grave site and then returning to the building for an late afternoon meal for the family and friends, I for one am not in the mood to eat, got a little behind with my meds I have been trying to keep up with different people who are also special in my life. going to go and will hopefully check on you prior to bedtime.
Wow, i couldnt be happier for ya uppy... I recently turned over a new leaf as well in my life... although i missed my weekend dose, which was a very scary ordeal, im pushing thru it tho like its nothing... I cnt imagine myself goin back to that everyday lifestyle of having to take things and risk jail time, n never seeing my daughter again... If there ever is a messege to get across to others, it is simply this... please get the help if u feel its needed. I personally am on methadone, and yes its like trading one addiction for another, but none the less, I have my life back. I am no longer in search of a better drug to get rid of my pain, i can be free minded about the day to day activitys, and enjoy every moment i possibly can with my daughter, who is my life, my beauty, and my world.
I prob missed out on a lot of great things to do with her, instead of looking down on myself for that, i know now that I can make up for lost time, and do so much more, and finally be there for my daughter like a father truely should. I am vey proud of u uppy, and everyone else out there who has or is in the process of getting the help they deserve... it is out there, please dont hesitate to ask or go searching. Thx again...
I am so happy for you. You are going to be fine and thank you for letting know that everything is getting better each day.Uppy, you mean a lot to all of us and it is nice to hear of all your good news. I will write to you again soon. Take care friend. With much love and happiness for you always.
Hello Uppy! You sound like you are on cloud 9! I am happy for you. You have really worked hard and you deserve a life that is filled with love and happiness. I am sure your family are proud of you. Just remember to take one day at a time and continue to see your doctor for follow up. Use all of the support you have in place now. I wish you the best! Sweetie Pie
