Re: WARNING. MUST READ

I’m glad your pooch is okay! But, rest assured, if it was just a small piece and he only licked it he’d be okay. In fact, Bupernorphine is often used by vets to treat pain in animals because it’s one they can take. It’s been used by vets and for human cancer patients for their pain for far longer th...

X-Ray (For Those Who Are Morbidly Curious About Broken Bones)

I thought I’d share with ya’ll my recent x-ray of my broken foot. I have what is known as a “Dancer’s Fracture”, (the only dancing I do is when no one is actually watching haha! But actual dancers often suffer from them hence the name). It’s medically accurate name is “a spiral fracture of the fifth...

Re: I know It’s Unseemly To Brag...

Aaaww thank you! I just got the newsletter in my email with my picture for the CoTM section and cropped it out and saved it. I think it turned out pretty good.

I know It’s Unseemly To Brag...

But, honestly, I don’t really care! I’m so happy and excited right now that I don’t care if it’s bad manners to brag. I just have to share!

Jane the Virgin...

I saw this and got a kick out of it. This model from Wish.com could be actress Yael Grobglas’ long lost twin sister! She played Petra on the series “Jane the Virgin”. Just thought I’d share my find so ya’ll could get a kick out of it as well.

Re: My Boss Is A Pervy Old Man. Lol!rn

It’s an adult family home run from the couple’s home so no, nothing like that. It’s a very small business with only two employees and located out of my boss’s house. I get what you mean and if I say something about it I’m sure he’d stop. I thought it was just an old man trying to be funny and giving...

I’ve worked for him and his wife for five years. They are good people. I’m used to it. If I wasn’t I wouldn’t have stuck around for five years. Haha! Oh I get it with the redness. I come from redheaded people but I didn’t get the full red just the undertones when the sun hits it and the pale skin. D...

My Boss Is A Pervy Old Man. Lol!rn

Well, technically he’s my boss’s husband but he runs the business with her. I think he gets a kick out of making me blush since I’m so fair-skinned. He always compliments me when I wear makeup or a dress and when the residents were asking for hugs he asked for one, jokingly, but I don’t think anyone...

New Warning Labels On Suboxone Bottles

My pharmacy has started putting this sticker on the tops of bottles of Suboxone and I just thought I would share after a what the heck moment. People not knowing any better might see this in the possession of a loved one in recovery and think; “Oh, crap. Are they messing up again? What’s this, Jimmy...

Re: Too much water = no sub metabolites in urine?

Hey skyda! I haven't ever had buprenorphine not show up in my screen but a couple months ago I was told that my urine was diluted. Now let me say this, I'm the most anti water drinker ever (I know I need to be more healthy about this) and I'm a diet Mountain Dew only person. I hadn't overly drank a...

Problems And A Pretty Good Doctor (Finally!)

So, it seems like 2017 has been the year of the slip-ups and backslides for yours truly. It started with the levels of Suboxone being too low in my urine and twice, (once during summer and again last month), of it not even showing up at all even the metabolite which I’m still confused about, and tur...

Re: Telemedicine/E-Doctors

Oh yeah raudy that's what I assumed it was, seeing someone from home. I obviously know we'd have to get our drug screening somewhere but if it were going into an office and then videoing then I wouldn't see much of a difference at all. Heck the waiting around all day long to see a doctor and dealin...

Re: Telemedicine/E-Doctors

I go to a clinic in Austin. Once i arrive, I do my drug screen and then I go to a room where I video chat with my Doctor. He asks me the usual: med check and how things are going, then he calls in my refill to CVS. It is really convenient. But...I still have to come in once a month and do the Drug ...

Re: Telemedicine/E-Doctors

My doctor has me come in 4 times a year. The other 8 or 9 times he has a video app called Hale which I access through my phone. I speak with my doctor for 10 to 20 minutes, going through how my month has been and what my med needs are. Amy I would love something like that! I found out there’s a tel...

Telemedicine/E-Doctors

Has anyone tried the online doctor approach? I saw a thing online for a Suboxone program where you speak with a provider via video conferencing from your home. It’s a bit on the spendy side at $270 for the first visit and $150 for each follow up but it might be worth it to avoid the hassle and runar...

Too much water = no sub metabolites in urine?

I just got back from my appointment and I was told that two previous urine tests were very diluted and showed no suboxone or it's metabolite in my urine. I asked if it had to do with me drinking a lot of water, which I tend to do ever since I replaced too much soda with watser, and they said that wo...

Hi skayda, I hope things are going well in squirrel town. :D How are the public schools there? Tax rate reasonable? Sounds like a nice place to live!! I did some checking and there's evidently a urine test that can detect alcohol usage some days afterward. "EtG is a direct metabolite of alcohol (et...

Re: Something Weird

I'm not sure what to make of the situation. Is it possible that the message was misunderstood-- for example that two points were made, one about changing appointments, and another about checking for alcohol? Nope. I asked flat out after hearing another patient complain about having to take a breath...
