Hi everyone! My name is cj and I am brand new here. I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate through the website as I am computer illiterate. I have been attending the methadone clinic here in Colorado for about 3 years now. I started using pain pills when I was 22 years old. My boyfriend was prescribed them and eventually I began taking them with him. I became addicted to them after a few months and continued taking them for years. It got so bad that I thought I couldn't survive w/out them. We both were addicted and we both suffered with severe depression. We both started attending the clinic together. He became very sick and ended up having heart surgery. He lived for a year and a half after that but I lost him. That has been almost four years ago and I can't believe I've made it through that. I am blessed with a one year old baby boy, I'm still attending the clinic and don't have anybody who I can talk to about my addiction or my treatment; so I'm glad that I found this website! Hope to talk to you all soon!

CJ
Thanks so much for sharing with us. I am so glad you found us too. That is the whole purpose of the forum and the website to bring us together. Unless you are in MMT, you can't really understand what it is like so it is so nice to find others that KNOW what we are going through and that we can share with and help each other.

I hope you will be an active member of the forum and that we will hear from you often. If you find an interesting article or poem or just something you want to share with everyone, I hope you will.

We recently had a live chat session where we were all able to sign on at the same time and talk in real time. I hope to do that again real soon and you can join us for that. Keep an eye on the announcements section because I hope to plan another one in a few weeks.

Thanks again for sharing and if you need anything, please let me know.
