Hi Les44, My name is Cathy and I am a member here. I been on Suboxone since August 2008. I have a history of abusing pain killers. Since Aug. 2008 the strongest pain killer I take is a asprin.

I am sure onces the moderators see that you are here they will pop in to welcome you. Their names are Dee, Barbara and Beth. They are wonderful and will help you with anything that you might need.

Anyways, I thought I would introduce myself. Hope to hear from you soon.

Cathy

Hi Cathy,
I sent you a reply yesterday, but have not seen it posted. I was just wondering if you know why. Maybe I didn't send it the right way. So before I repeat the previously sent message I will wait and see if I'm doing this correctly!
Talk to you soon~

Hi Leslie, Sometimes that will happen. When you write a post it just disapears. It used to happen to me all the time. But I figured out because I took too long to write it or I just left it and came back to it and when I posted it it was gone. I think you got the hang of thought because your last post showed up.

I hope you had a great Day. It was chilly here in NY. Tomorrow it is going to be sunny and up in the fifties. I think spring is finally here.

Talk to you soon. Cathy

Hi Cathy!
O.k. like I was saying in the phantom reply!
My name is Leslie and I just started taking Suboxone 3 days ago. I was glad to stumble across this sight as I do have tons of questions.
Good for you and the amount of time away from pain killers, I feel hopeful when I hear about people's success!
So I guess I will check out the forum and see what I'm suppose to do about asking questions. I noticed today, when I was checking things out, that there is a place for just asking questions about Suboxone so that is where I think I will post my questions. That is if I ever get there as I seem to be going 3,000 different directions at once!! I really have never been in a forum except at school on some of the on-line classes I've taken.....Anyways, as I was saying...
Thank you for your reply and keep on keepin on!
Enjoy~
Leslie

Hi, my name is Lisa and I've been on Suboxone for 5 years. I'm trying to cut down so I can get off. Was wondering if anyone can give me any advice. I started on 12 mg. and just his last month went from 6 to 4 mg. but am having anxiety & depression and don't feel like getting off the couch. It's hard! I could use some support but don't know anybody on it.

Hi Lisa, My name is Cathy and I am a long time member here. The only advice I can give you is to take it slow and easy. After each drop give yourself time to adjust to the new dose. I think it takes a couple of weeks to adjust. The lower you get the slower the taper should be. Is your doctor making you taper or are you doing this on your own? About the anxiety and depression I would speak to your doctor and can put you on an anti-depressant if you are not on one. I am sure once the others see your post they can offer more ideas and support. I hope your evening is going well. Cathy

Hi Leslie,

It's Barbara and in hopes you are doing okay. I know it helps to share even when you don't feel like you can. Anything worthwhile is hard. We have a lot crammed way down and it's an ordeal to know where to begin to let it out. Someone said we are as sick as our secrets and the healing begins when we slowly put it our there. I'm listening anytime you want to express yourself. Take all the time you need. When it comes down to it, all we really want is to feel close to somebody. We care about each other and in turn we get our needs met.

I'm working tomorrow and up early, so I'll go for now. I try to check the board before I go to bed. Look for the good in everything and know there are people with you.
Yours in the struggle,
Barbara
