Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Hello all, Just a quick update on my progress. It's been about a month since I've been off Suboxone. My experience this time around was NOTHING like my first time coming off. Night and day. I always said, if the depression stayed away, I'd be able to deal with anything. Getting my bipolar disorder u...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Jenn and Amy... Thank you very much for your replies. I know I've said this many times, but I'm tremendously grateful for the support I receive on this forum. There is no way I could make it through ANYTHING suboxone related without you all. So, ironically, before I even read any responses, I decide...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Hello all... I wanted to update everyone on my tapering process. I have weaned down to what I call "a period" marking. Essentially, if you look at the actual period at the end of these sentences, and double the size of the period...that is my current dosage. I cannot even begin to measure the amount...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Thank you Amy! I will be taking your advice in every aspect. While I asked sincerely about the extra Suboxone, in my heart, I could not imagine parting with them for several reasons. However, I never even thought about a safe box or anything. I think that's an awesome idea and exactly what I plan on...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Owl and the rest of the crew, Can't thank you enough for that response Owl. I have followed your advice to a tee. I apologize that it's been so long since I've been on. I have 3 kids and one of them is just turning 1 now, so it's been quite the journey. For those who read my very first post in which...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Thank you so much owl and Angie. It always feels really wonderful to sign on here and see a response. I cannot help but wonder if group therapy is the piece I am missing, as it often feels so good to have people actually listen, as well as hearing others stories. Owl...you said it the best, as basic...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Well...now I know that my bipolar disorder is not at all where I would like it to be either...because I cannot even see through the tears while I type! Words cannot express how grateful I am to actually see some responses. We are truly a family here (sometimes I wish my own family would get it the w...

Re: 106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

I cannot believe it's 2017 and I am back in the same exact position I once was. Hello all...as you can see from this post, I made it thru suboxone withdrawal. In fact, I use to brag about how on day 188, I felt normal again. Well, here I am again, about 2 years and 3 months into a suboxone "habit" o...

Much Thanks Romeo

Romeo...I've been popping off and on here all day hoping for a response. And I can't begin to tell you what a relief it was to see your post. In my heart, I think I simply needed someone to let me know it will get better eventually. So I thank you for that. I too had to stop drinking coffee and anyt...

106 Days Off Suboxone...MY FIRST POST EVER

Well, here I finally am. 106 days off suboxone and I have finally found the strength to write. First off, I want to thank ALL of you, as this forum has gotten me through some of my roughest days. With many of you, I feel as if I know you personally. I have never found the strength to actually respon...
