Hi... I was an opiate addict... (roxicet 30mg- 15 a day) for 8yrs... I am 60days clean today! I did a 14day out-patient detox at a local addiction center. Coping with reality off the pills really sucks, but I try not to think about it and keep busy. I go to counseling but I don't think it's helping much. My doc just put me on Wellbutrin... says it should help what dopamine I have left be more effective. I had to quit my job because all my co-workers are users. I think I would feel better if I went back to work... but at the same time I'm scared! I would have money in my pocket again and still don't trust myself 100%. Does anyone understand what I'm saying... my boyfriend doesn't want me to work either but we have kids and alot of bills, and are falling deeper into debt. I'm so frustrated
Girl i am in the same situation right now. I have been clean for almost 3 months and Im a CNA. If I go back to that job field Ill be around medication and I do trust myself but Im scared the word will get out that I am an addict and I dont want to hear the talk if you know what I mean. Im job hunting right now trying to find a job in a different field but it is really hard to find a job with good pay that will work around my families schedule. I guess we just need to get out there and try. We wont know until we try right? Just know yourself and we both can do this. Its what are families need right now. Plus I think it would be a good thing to get out of the house and help bring in some money. At least with me I know Ill feel much better helping contribute to my families needs. Add me as a friend and ill do the same. We can chat. How many kiddos do u have? I have 3.
