Con yes, yes I do. Its sad. Its like they dont want to see, like they prefer their way of life and how they deal with all this nightmare while knowing its not healthy ..addicted to addict . Then gets hurt and upset when another addict tells them how they got it all wrong and probably causing more damage then good. Yes I feel resentment sometimes but what I do is I stopped reading comments from few members.

can you imagine living in that way, never learning to detach , always sharing whatever addicts is going trough , actively involved from day 1, always hoping and always loosing the battle .. its terrifying at least , years and years of life spent for nothing and all you get back is pain , tears and desperation.. nightmare not life. So sad...
sorry Con I am in depressed mood today

MK this is what i found
For some medicines, such as methadone mixture, where the strength is usually 1mg (weight) per 1 ml (volume) the number for the dose and volume are the same, but as drugs (including methadone) come in different strengths it is good practice to always only talk about the dose using the weight - milligrams.
it seems its the same so my 5 mills is like 1 tablet of 5 milligrams ..

B and Con--

Not to sound paranoid (lol), but hope you aren't referring to me, cause I really look forward to reading your posts. I really value your advice because you have helped me so much in this craziness with my son.

We had no idea when we joined this forum what to do or how to do it. We have since stopped enabling and detached with love (well, he detached when we stopped enabling and is now MIA).

You guys have guided us and helped us to do what we have known for a long time was necessary. Just never had anyone that had walked the walk and could tell us what we were up against. You have helped us with our addiction--enabling!

I still need a booster ( of your advice) now and then when I have weak moments, but those weak moments are getting fewer and farther apart! We finally have some "normalcy" in our lives and our concentrating our our 15 y/o and ourselves!

Please don't stop reading my posts or commenting on them cause you are such a help and I really value your advice!!!!

(((HUGS)))) Lori

sweet Lori no and no its answer :) you are being nothing but supportive , as I would say decent human being, helpful and welcoming ! I am for one today is bad mood and when I am like that I know to lash out .. for me its more about feeling I get sometimes on this board but as I am going trough ups and downs i cant trust myself but when Con said it i thought ok maybe its not in my head only BUT then Con is not in great place herself so what we feel it doesnt need to be obvious to you .. on another hand all this could be in our minds only, dont forget we too have to live with guilt and hurt we caused towards others and ourselves , feeling unworthy and all other dark feelings that plague us on daily bases.I said on few occasions i am blessed and lucky to find you guys when i did ,honestly i think that!
hugs xx

Like Lori, I hope I'm not being paranoid . . .I hope you aren't referring to me. LOL. In fact . . .ditto everything that Lori said!!!!

Lately, I, too, have felt like I have been beating my head against a wall sometimes. Thank God for the "delete" button . . .because I have typed out "In what other language can I say this to you in so you understand?" . . .but then I erase. I thought it was just because I have been in a super dark place recently . . .it is easy for me to go from calm to enraged faster than a Corvette can go from zip to 60 mph. Thanks for the sanity check!!! Just goes to prove, as my grandmother used to say, that some folks don't believe that fat means greasy.

You all know how I feel about each of you . . . what you mean to me . . .what you mean to this community on this board . . .I don't want to blow your heads or egos up by repeating it here!!!! Smile

Love you guys,
Lynn
xoxo

I forgot to read the fine print, when i signed up to be your Mom. I thought it would be smiles & hugs and quite a lot of fun.

I didn’t see the part about addiction, mental illness, pain, hopelessness or despair. I didn’t know life could be so flipping unfair.

But I now see something in the fine print that I didn’t see before. It also says to survive your addiction, I must love me more.

Hahaha i can see lynn totally sayin that! (good thing) ☺ btw bonnie you got me cracking up bout the A guy and movie thing!) idk even know what was said except between you and con..but that was funny ans thought of that movie momento...you guys try to keep spirits up. I know too well easy to get frustrated or take things directed at ourselves. But people still get something from the addicts perspective..so even if is true..just think about the people who DO benefit from the advice. Even if its just ONE its worth it..(im sure much more then that)

Umm.. Ahh.. If you are not annoyed by Lynn and Lori..... is it me?
LOL.... sorry if I repeat and wallow in the past at times.... I am just trying to give examples to help others. This board has really been very helpful in giving me support and helping me see the reality of addiction
