    Well figure I'd bust out an update. And bump up the old thread to a new page.

    Thanks for stopping by CC. Blood moon tonight eh. Looking forward to your update!! Ready for some changes . Need the stars to align.

    Ok. So took K to a ENT specialist on Tuesday and she has had chronic ear infections for quite some time. But she is in the process of losing hearing in her left ear. Still infected and some fluid behind her eardrum. So we got different drops that are supposed to work and then in 2 weeks we gotta go back and see what is happening and maybe get tubes put in. So I know she isn't happy about that. But she is a trooper and I know she'll be ok. I just feel bad for her. She has been fighting this battle for a while.

    Next on the list is a little bit graphic. So beware and read at your own risk. About a week and a half ago I had some bloody stool. And it was a bit scary. But it was just one time. And this was going on when my back was killing me and right before I went to the chiropractor. So I didn't think much of it. However same issue for the last 3 days, and I'm getting a bit worried. I went on to web md. (I know CC, stay off the internet it'll only make you paranoid) and it just made me more anxious. But I made an appt with my dr. Because what else can I do at this point? Just a little bit scary. I don't want to jump to any conclusions but it's hard to wait and see. I wanna know know!! Ugh...... But that's about it. Back is still sore but better. So we shall see what's what. Hoping it's nothing.

    Hope everyone has a great night.
    Sorry It's a bit graphic. But I just wanted to get it out there.

    What’s Good Brother B-

    You know it!!! I’m out here basking in the Moon rays with my bag of white cheddar & Carmel popcorn. I would share but don’t want to add to your little issue. Definitely keep off Google & get you a bowl of greens & something to soften things up. New Philosophy- No worries until there’s something to worry about AND we all know that’s always up for debate. For now we’ll blame it Mars. It went retrograde backing chit up...literally!

    Everything Will Come Out In The End,

    ❤️

    Blah!! Sorry you have to worry about this. I do the same thing by looking up symptoms. What doesn't match, I can convince myself it does. lol Glad you are going to see your doctor because that's where you need to start. In the meantime, don't panic! There are a lot of things that can cause your issue most of which can be easily treated. Could be that something is just inflamed or irritated, benign but annoying and sometimes painful polyps among other things. Hopefully it's something easily diagnosed and treated. No sense worrying without knowing what you're worried about. MUCH easier said than done, I know. This is simply another pain in the azz. Ha!

    Peace,

    Cat

    Hope things turn around for K too. It's been way too long that she's been suffering with this.

    Thanks so much Cat and CC. You guys are right. I can't worry about it and hopefully it is something minor and easily treated. So I'm just not gonna worry about it. I'm not in any pain, and there's nothing I can do but wait. I'm just having nightmares about a big grizzled doctor with huge sausage fingers who neglects to take off his huge class rings......ugh. bad thoughts lol. But just wanted to say thanks for calming me down. Hope you all have a great Sunday!!!

    Oh, no.....Beef! I just came by to say hello, and sorry I didn't have any coffee last time you knocked on my door....or any cake.....and sorry I didn't answer the door. Maybe I just wasn't home....or maybe I didn't want Armondo on my carpet.....idk. Anywho, thanks for checking up on me. Then when I got here and was about to knock, I saw something terrible.....I saw a big grizzled doctor with big ol' sausage fingers and an absolutely huge class ring...just outside your back door. RUN, Beef, RUN!

    Oh Brother Wellington,

    Why must us addicts go straight for the worse case scenario?

    There’s always the possibility that grizzly ‘ole doc with sausage fingers is out of the office & his Nurse Practioner, with petite fingers, walks into the exam room. Silver Linings Brother, hold out Hope to the very end. Even if it doesn’t go the way you Hoped at least you can add this nice little plot twist as you drift off to you happy place.

    It’s hard to turn apples into oranges but that’s all I got. Either way it is what it is & it will be over b4 you know it.

    Peace, Love, & Small Fingers,

    ❤️

    Lol. Yup that's us. Always to the worst case scenario. Who knows why?? Doesn't matter who will be doing the examining. I can't imagine it'll be a fun experience. But it is what it is and it has to be done. Can't avoid it forever. Guess I gotta put on my big boy pants and just roll with it.

    (This wasn't really the changes and new beginnings I was hoping the blood moon would bring)

    Hey man, this is the first time I looked on here since 2014 when the last time I was trying to get off subox, for whatever reason, I didn't, and now its 2018 and Im like thinking about it again. Well I first looked at my old posts, and the people that responded back in 2014 and they aren't even on here anymore? I wonder man what happened to them, (some great people). Anyway the next post I looked at was yours, after a search for getting off subox. Sooo I don't know, maybe its meant to happen, I like that you are on day 11 and not giving up. I want to say, congrats, to you for trying, I mean it takes ALOT to get to day 11. I hope you do well, and perhaps your encouragement will get me to finally take this plunge? I mean damn it sucks that you know you have to take this >>>> forever, for fear like your life is gonna fall apart off of it. (Like I can't go crazy you know?, I will lose everything, etc etc) Sooo man you have a lot to go for bro, I mean the fact you have a fiancé hanging in with you, so awesome, NOW is the time to FIGHT, keep FIGHTING, take the hurt, remember the HURT was there even when you were taking this >>>> drug. Look, Im not sure I will get off this >>>>, BUT if I can atleast say to hear you are trying helps me and ofcourse we don't even know each other. The weird thing is I travel with work, and the last doctor I got it from was a doctor in Ga? Some clinic near Atlanta, strange...ANYWAY KEEP FIGHTING!!!!! And maybe I will join the fight knowing YOU did it!!!!

    Hey Matthew. Welcome back! And thanks for stopping by. Yes I'm still doing great. In about two weeks I'll be 11months clean off the subs. And it was a rough road for a while but I made it. It certainly wasn't all sunshine and rainbows but we addicts like to make it hard on ourselves. That's great you're thinking of getting clean again. We can definately help you out. How much are you currently taking daily? I jumped from 1mg and I wouldn't recommend it. Have you seen the suboxone taper plan? If you follow that your w/d will be minimal. Have you thought about starting your own thread? You can chronicle your journey there and leave updates for the members and they can follow you much easier. Give some background, how much you're taking, etc. You'll get lots of support and suggestions.

    The members who aren't here anymore. We just have to assume they're doing well and living their lives. Every once in a while one will stop in and say hello. I know when I found this place I read so many responses from people who are no longer around. Kinda wish I had the opportunity to be there when they were around. But I guess I wasn't ready just yet.

    I too was worried what life would be like off the junk. But I promise you it is amazing. I wasn't sure I could even function without something to help me through the day. But it is possible. And it can be done. Things are so much better and I'm so much happier than I ever was on the subs. You're absolutely right about my fiancee she is awesome!! She stuck by and helped me through this and I will never be able to thank her for it. But I'll be more than happy to spend the rest of my life trying!

    Anyways, I feel like I'm rambling a bit and getting off topic. We can definately help you if you're ready to be done. The forum has been a bit slower than usual over the last month, but there are still many great knowledgeable people floating around who will help you get clean. Maybe it is fate you found your way back to us?? Who knows. Start that thread and we'll get you through this!!

    Welcome back!!

    Well went to the Dr today. Blood pressure is high again. Put on a few pounds. So they ran more blood work. And had some fun scolding me about my diet (or lack there of over the last few months.) Job has been super stressful lately and I've just about had enough of it. And I think that's a good thing. It seems like this job is killing me slowly. Just can't seem to get ahead lately and it seems like I'm the one who always gets stuck pulling extra/double shifts. So I'm done busting my hump. Somethings gotta give that's for sure. So K and I put together a new diet and a workout routine. And we're gonna do it as a family. We all could stand to lose a few pounds for sure.

    On the other note it seems I've picked up some hemorrhoids??(sp) That's where my issue seems to be stemming from according to my dr. She wants to see me in 3 months and gave me some cream and if it gets worse to call her. I'm not sure what to expect. I've never had them before. I always assumed they hurt like h.ell but I have no pain whatsoever. So I'll do what is requested of me and just hope my doctor knows more than I do. (Shouldn't be too hard)

    Final note. Heading to FL next week for a few interviews for K and I and to do a little house hunting. Need a break badly from this place. And hopefully we can both land a job and start the moving process. Just ready to get going!!

    That's all from up here. Hope everyone is doing well and has a great rest of the day.

    Lol. Yes I'm sure there are many jokes in there somewhere.

    We haven't really picked a spot. K has a few interviews for some very nice work from home jobs. And my interviews seem to be in the Tampa/Brandon area. Definately want to be close to the family, but don't necessarily want to be in their backyard either.

    Well the trip to FL was productive for K. But not so much for me. Had 4 interviews lined up and they all just disappeared. But K had no interviews and 4 just appeared out of nowhere when we were driving down. And they all went amazing. Everyone wants a piece of her. She won't have a hard time getting employed. I know I'll find something, it's just frustrating. Gotta love the red tide down there. The whole state smells like hot garbage. It's not pretty. Hopefully it'll clear up soon. But right now it's brutal. Looked for a few houses and found some really nice ones in our price range. So just gonna wait and see what the week brings. But I'd love to start packing. Job up here is crazy and only getting more stressful and nit picky. It's just time for a change.

    Side note: Just passed 11 months clean!!! It just keeps getting better. Ups and downs here and there but that's life. Lethargy seemed to lift around 7 months. But that seems to be it. It can be done!!! It's not pleasant but you can do it if you want it!!

    Hope everyone has a great day!!

    Well been absent for a few days. Been really busy packing up the house. Hoping to be on the road by Thursday heading to the sunshine state. Found a job when I get into town. Granted it's not the job I want, but at least it's a job with positive income coming in. We are really excited and looking forward to starting a new life in FL together. But I hate moving!!!!! It just sux. Everyone is happy and healthy. Just looking forward to getting out of here.

    Side note. Sleep is still a challenge. Seems like my sleep is regulated to 3-4 hour naps at best. I thought it would level out and I'd be sleeping through the night at least some of the time. But I guess that's just gonna be the new me. I don't know I just thought around a year clean I'd be sleeping better. It just seems like I need a nap way too often in the afternoon. Feel like an old man. Lol. There's my whine for the day. No more pity parties.

    Hope all is well with everyone. I'll check back in whenever I can. Busy busy.

    Thanks for posting on my new thread, I did leave you a reply there. What was your regimen with the DLPA in your early stages of detox? How much did you take per day, how often per day, on an empty stomach, etc...? Did you take any other amino acids, vitamins and/or supplements? Let me know when you get a chance? Thanks. Be well... God bless us all!

    PS
    How's your move coming along? I read you are from Florida? I've been here since 1999, not too fond of it anymore myself any more! Too hot in the summer and the hurricanes are just too much to deal with! So far so good this year and I hope and pray it stays that way?

    Beef, I gotta catch you when you and me are logged in here at the same time? Have you explored the website here much? Have you ever clicked on a members name on the top of a post? For example, clicking on my name at the top of this post, lots of info, the "about me" page, etc...? A lot of things on this website that are very helpful that not that many people know about, even the veteran members that have been around the forums for years! I'm always exploring, it's a great website all around with a lot of great people as well! Reply when you can? Good night and thanks again for all your insight. God bless us all!

    PS
    I see your bucs almost gave that game away after having such a huge and commanding lead!

    Yeah I did some playing around on the site for a while. Figured how to enable the incognito mode and lurk like a ninja. Lol. I think I need to play around a bit more though. Yeah we almost gave it up. Defense didn't look too good yesterday. So we'll see what happens. I don't think we can put 48 on the board every week so we gotta see what we can do about it. Anything will be an improvement on last year. Even though we did beat the Jets!!! (Sorry lvg. Last time I promise)
