PostSubject: I never would have thought...   Fri Apr 08, 2011 7:35 pm

I would have never though that the drug that took the life of so many of my friends would also be the drug that gave me my life back.

After using drugs for a lil over 17 years and knowing my 30th birthday was coming up in just a few mts. I thought tomorrow Would be a great day to get help and stop using, it was my mothers birthday. And now some 230 days later I couldn't be more happy. And after the death of 8 close friends over the last 10 years I know I did the right thing and at the right time, because I know I would be the next to OD. But like most ppl I looked down on methadone, I thought it was good for nothing but taking away the ppl I loved. I couldnt have been more wrong. If MMT worked for me I know it can work for anybody, anybody that really wants it 2. I had used drugs every day for over half of my life and didn't know what life really was or how I could live it with out drugs and 11 years ago I was hit by a drunk driver, it broke my hip in 3 places and left me with pain that's for life. So with 17 years of drugs and 11 years of pain I really didn't have much hope. But now I'm full of hope and happy to be alive, and I'm looking forward to life. And that's a GREAT THING !!! Very Happy

Now here since 2008 I on
MetaDon and Thank God, that at us has appeared! I have started to live, and to exist in constant search of money after drugs, and after even actually they are not present a vein as a whole! My mother has sighed with simplification, and I regret only, that the father has not lived up to and did not see, how the son has changed for these almost three years!
Though there is no other output and there is no other medicine which I shall be
For use of metaDon it and only it has stopped me! Though while at us in the country and with it difficultly it is necessary to go every day in hospital for metaDon but also for this thanks! Though we under the program we are alive... I Wish all health and successes! Den

What a wonderful Birthday present for your mother. I'm sure that's a birthday she'll never forget, the day she got her son back.
I am glad that both of you are doing so well in your recovery, many good years ahead.

Hi! Thanks for support and a parting word I to you wish the same all! Yes 3 years for me are a lot of but at you Ruthan for example it 11 years now that's something like it! My mum even has changed it even has recovered because the life became quiet. The only thing of that I want and I dream, that finally we in Ukraine would have a possibility to not go every day for metaDon, and
To receive as at you for some days, weeks! All right I wish all to us health and love mutual! Respectfully Den.

Den,
In time maybe and hopefully everyone in the Ukraine who needs this valuable treatment will have access to it. It would be a great day for all the day you are allowed to have your take homes. I know it's hard to go everyday for your dose. I did the same thing for four years, and I went gladly because my life had been given back to me.
Jusr remember and keep in mind, you can make a difference.
Best wishes to you and yours.

Yes I too very much hope, that all will change at us in Ukraine! Already and the law have accepted but it still does not work to doctors will difficultly be reconstructed and up to the end the law is not adapted for our conditions as the liquid form metaDon only in it to year will start to enter while metaDon in tablets and still buprenorphine for a long time it is possible to receive under the recipe but it is very difficult
To solve from 6000 with extra patients of all the person 20 have recipes, and house reception metaDon is not present in general! But as the law is we would do all possible that it worked! And the most important is continuousness of therapy at us does not work in full force only in some cities it is possible to lay down in hospital and there to receive metaDon and to not go behind it in another
Where constantly everyone receive the central hospital, and here even in capital in Kiev nurses with the doctor carry metaDon that who lays in hospital! So, that only the hope also helps to live! The main thing certainly it that in general give metaDon! Den.
