You have an amazing story to tell and I would like to congratulate you on taking the steps you need to in order to save yourself from a further life of addiction. Keep up your positive outlook and do the steps that the Big Book says and you will recover from this disease.
Managing chronic pain is a very difficult thing, it takes a tole physically and mentally that is for sure. Although life deals pretty rotten things to us sometimes, there is always a way out….it takes a lot of work, but I assure you that it is well worth it.
Thanks for your post. It’s always a reminder that I am not alone in my disease.
