I have had my issues. About 17 accidents. Surgeries. Glucose events. Sleep walking. Pnuemonia. Posting and texting weird crap to peeps.
I didn’t know it but while I was hospitalized last week they began tapering me off the junk.
Mr.W and kids had a zoom call with my PC. He agreed I’ve had too many accidents lately.
I would list them but I think everyone already knows.
I agree I was a junky. But, dang it, I missed the party. I’m pretty sure I cried more than jollied it up.
Isn’t that just sad?
My life never ceases to amaze me.
Beck honey, it happens so easily. No one sets out to become a hop-head (that’s my grandma speaking, she got hooked on medication too). There’s nothing to forgive, but a whole lot to be concerned about. Thanks to your family for speaking up and good luck to you.
We all love you here so we are here if you need our help in your effort to overcome this. Hell, we’re always here waiting for your next post anyway. Sending you support.
I’m really having a easy time of it. I do have some minor pain in my ribs. I’m thinking healing more will alieviate that.
I’m taking things kinda low key.
No surprises at dialysis today which was comforting.
I feel blessed that it was caught pretty early. And I have help.
I don’t know how a person can do this alone.
My Straight-Dope family really does help.
People you live with sometimes think you’re just strange.
And the Dopers think I’m…umm, yeah, y’all think I’m crazy too.
Oh well, that sentiment didn’t quite work out the way I thought it might🤭
Hang in there. One foot in front of the other, a minute at a time, then an hour at a time. It will get to be a day at a time. Lean on others, us included. Especially us, perhaps. I have some experience at doing what you’re doing. PM me if you’d like. Every day will get easier, I promise.
Wait - you weren’t serious? We’re not getting married? Crap! Now I have to get a hold of that divorce lawyer and cancel the papers…
In all seriousness, good luck and God bless. You know that we’re all behind you hoping for the best. Although, if your altered mental state is what allowed you to “adopt” a possum, that would explain a lot!
I sometimes, look at him and think this about the most insane thing in the world.
Then I remembered the little tiny intellectually handicapped Yorkie I hand fed and eyedropper watered everyday for 10 years. (She always put her paws on the toes of my shoes)
Yeah, but you’re our kind of crazy. Wishing you the very best, Beck, and knowing you can beat this. I sure wish someone would invent painkillers that are highly effective but don’t get people high or addicted.
