Karl, Can You Help Me Get Off Methadone?
Here is a series of eMail exchanges I had with
"Mary." This page also gives you an example of the personal
nature of questions I receive and the detail which I provide in my
answers. People still find it hard to believe that I, personally, take so
much interest in strangers who write!
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INFO ON MSM.
I HAVE READ THE MAJORITY OF IT.
AS REGARDS TO YOUR E-MAIL. I AM IN THE
PROCESS OF COMING OFF METHADONE ALTHOUGH SLOWLY, 2MLS. EVERY
2MONTHS, I AM DOWN TO 30MLS. BUT WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO EXPLAIN
IS WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST FOR ME AT THIS PRESENT TIME.
ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE MSM AND METHADONE
ARE CLASHING LEAVING ME IN A STATE OF CONSTANT WITHDRAWAL, AND THEREFORE
DEFEATING THE OBJECT AS YOU SAY MSM IS A DETOXIFIER.
ALSO, IS THERE ANY CHANCE OF ME
CREATING FURTHER PROBLEMS TAKING BOTH. AS NOW, I HAVE BEGUN TO COME OUT
IN LOTS OF LUMPS ALONG WITH LIKE YOU SAY NOTHING BUT ITCHING, A FEELING OF
HIGH AND THE SLEEP HAS NOW STOPPED. AGAIN.
I CAN RECOGNIZE A LOT OF THE THINGS
YOU WENT THROUGH.
BUT, THE PAST FEW DAYS I HAVE BEEN
REALLY BAD WITH WEAKNESS, EMOTIONAL, AND JUST PLAIN SORE. I HAVE NOT GOT
ANY RASHES WITH LITTLE CUTS THOUGH I AM VERY RED IN PLACES.
LAST NIGHT I FELT I WAS FLYING.
I AM REALLY CONFUSED WHETHER TO
CONTINUE WITH MSM UNTIL I AM FREE OF METHADONE OR, I JUST DON'T KNOW ANYMORE,
I GET VERY SCARED AND DON'T KNOW IF I AM MAKING THINGS WORSE EVEN THOUGH THE ACHING
HAS STOPPED, WHICH IS A BIG RELIEF.
I AM JUST SO BAFFLED AS TO WHAT IS THE RIGHT
THING. I HAVE BEEN ON METHADONE FOR SO LONG ,COMING OFF SLOWLY IS THE
ONLY WAY I CAN DO IT. AS I'M SURE YOU KNOW IT IS A VERY POWERFUL DRUG WHICH IS
WELL INTO MY BODY FAT (WHAT THERE IS OF IT).
ANYWAY, I HAVE WROTE TO "NARCONON" AS
YOU SUGGESTED AND I AM WAITING FOR A REPLY. I AM SORRY IT HAS
TAKEN SO LONG FOR ME TO GET BACK TO YOU. BUT AFTER READING YOUR STUFF
AND THEN WRITING TO NARCONON. I WAS VERY WEAK, HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND?
I WOULD JUST LIKE TO EXPLAIN A LITTLE
ABOUT THE WAY IN WHICH I TRY TO DESCRIBE TO PEOPLE HOW I FELT WHEN I FIRST
TOOK MSM. I FELT AS THOUGH AN ARMY HAD ENTERED MY BODY AND PUT
EVERYTHING IN IT'S PLACE, AS THOUGH THERE WERE LITTLE PEOPLE TELLING OTHERS TO
GO HERE AND THERE. THOSE PLACES BEING AT THE JOINTS, WHERE THE PROBLEM
ACTUALLY LAYS. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, CAN YOU IMAGINE? I ALSO
FEEL I HAVE TO AGREE THAT MSM IS A DETOX, IT JUST FEELS SO WEIRD.
ANYWAY, THANKS FOR ALL THE INFO AND GETTING
BACK SO QUICKLY, I WAS VERY GRATEFUL.
No, MSM would not
clash with Methadone.
writing this letter Vibrant Life has adopted a new
policy. We refuse to sell any of our products to
any person taking any antidepressant or other
psychiatric drug or any street drug. Methadone is
"legal" but it is deadly. People who get on these
deadly drugs do not do well on any other therapy, diet
or vitamins. They are progressing toward the state of
"vegetable," and arrive there in due course. The
ONLY help I will offer is to urge them to get off the
Click Here for a more detailed explanation of the
Vibrant Life policy.
It is as if some
person comes into a doctor, with a gushing wound, bleeding to death, and then
asks for help with his headache.
I cannot, in good
conscious, recommend ANYTHING to you except what I know will work.
Yes, MSM is a
detoxification substance, and yes it MIGHT help.
But, I have
absolute certainty on the proper detox procedure you should go through -- and
I cannot recommend, honestly, anything else.
Who has told you
that "slowly" is the only way you can stop?? That person has
given you very bad advice.
program can help you and I will not try to help with some procedure that is
not certain in my mind.
On their web page
I saw phone numbers as well as addresses. I would urge you to NOT wait
for mail, but to call them and get further data there.
After years on
methadone, and putting up with it, you are in a very important period of your
life -- looking to get off. There is a way, but I don't think there is
any way that works other than Narconon.
let me know how
I RECEIVED THE WEDNESDAY MAGAZINE.
AND THANK YOU FOR IT, THOUGH I AM STILL TO READ QUITE A FAIR BIT, I NEED SOME
TIME TO DIGEST IT ALL. VERY INTERESTING ALL THE SAME , THOUGH I HAVE NOT
AS REGARDS "NARCONON" I HAVE
READ ALL THEY HAVE TO SAY AS REGARDS THEIR SYSTEM. I REALLY FEEL THAT I
MYSELF COULD NOT PUT MY BODY THROUGH SUCH A STRICT REGIME.
I HAVE THEREFORE, WROTE AND TRIED TO
THE PERSON WHO GAVE ME THE BAD
ADVICE TO REDUCE THE METHADONE BY JUST 2MLS. WAS IN FACT, MYSELF.
DAFT AS IT MAY SEEM TO YOU. IT IS MY BODY I FEAR FOR MOST. I
CAN FEEL MY HEART WORKING VERY HARD WITH THAT 2ML REDUCTION AND IT SCARES ME.
APART FROM THE HEART, THE PAIN IS JUST TOO MUCH. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS
PATHETIC AND, MAY VERY WELL BE. BUT I MUST LISTEN TO MYSELF ALONG WITH
TAKING ANY ADVICE AND INFORMATION I CAN FROM ANYONE WHO IS PREPARED TO GIVE
ANY, SUCH AS YOURSELF. FOR WHICH I AM TRULY GRATEFUL,
YOU REALLY MUST BELIEVE THAT, I HOPE YOU
DO ANYWAY. YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT INSPIRATION TO ME AND IN THE HUMAN RACE
ITSELF. IT IS NOT OFTEN YOU MEET PEOPLE WHO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY AS I
FEEL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME. SUCH AS EVEN GETTING IN CONTACT PERSONALLY
YOURSELF TO "NARCONON" FOR ME! THIS WAS VERY TOUCHING,
AS REGARDS BULK MSM. AS I EXPLAINED IN
ONE OF MY LETTERS, I FELT THAT A BIG DOSE AT THIS POINT IS NOT THE CORRECT WAY
THEY ARE HELPING ME GREATLY WITH 4000
ML.GRMS. I AM SLEEPING AND NOT ACHING VERY MUCH. BUT, WHEN I
DO EVENTUALLY GET OFF METHADONE AND ALSO, VALIUM (WHICH I HAD FORGOTTEN TO
MENTION) WHICH I HAVE EVENTUALLY BEGAN TO REDUCE WITH A MASSIVE EASE , SO FAR!
AND THEY WERE ONE THING THAT I WAS EVEN TOO SCARED TO THINK ABOUT. BUT I
HAVE FOUND MYSELF FORGETTING TO TAKE THEM IN THE MORNING WHICH WAS SOMETHING
THAT JUST WAS NOT EVEN A CONSIDERATION AS IT SEEMED COMPLETELY UNFEASIBLE.
SO, THERE YOU GO. IT'S EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE THAN I'D EVER IMAGINED.
I WAS GOING TO SAY "YOU'LL NEVER KNOW JUST HOW MUCH YOU HAVE HELPED)
BUT, I BELIEVE YOU WILL HAVE HEARD THAT ON MANY, MANY OCCASIONS.
SO ONCE MORE, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FROM
THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. AND WHEN I AM OFF THOSE DRUGS, I WILL BE GOING
FULL PELT INTO TAKING THE TOP DOSE OF MSM TO CLEAN MYSELF TOTALLY. AND
TO BUILD MYSELF UP. AND, MAYBE I WILL EVEN BE ABLE TO HELP MY JOINTS
ETC. I WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE CONTACTING YOU THEN, SO TOUCH WOOD!
THIS IS A PROMISE.
ONE LAST THING, I WILL BE GOING TO
"THE MESEYSIDE ANNUAL DRUGS MEETING" WHICH WILL BE FULL OF NOT
ONLY THE MEDICAL PROFESSION BUT THE POLICE, PROBATION SERVICES ETC. I
WILL BE ARMED WITH SO MUCH INFORMATION ON MSM. AND WILL BE TALKING ABOUT IT TO
WHOEVER IS PREPARED TO LISTEN. AS I FEEL MSM. WILL BE A TREMENDOUS
HELP IN THIS SIDE OF DRUG REHABILITATION, AS I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE AFFECT.
THOUGH SOMEHOW I FEEL THE STIMULANT ABUSERS MAY JUST GET THE BIGGEST HELP
RIGHT FROM THE WORD GO OF USE, WHILE OPIATE ABUSERS MAY FIND IT A BIGGER HELP
LATER ON. THAT IS TO BE DISCOVERED. SO, IF YOU EVER DO START
MARKETING IN THE U.K. MAY I JUST SAY THAT I WOULD CERTAINLY HELP IN YOUR
APPROACH, AS I FOUND THAT YOUR PRESENTATION JUST WOULD NOT SUIT THE BRITISH
PUBLIC. THIS IS NOT MEANT AS AN INSULT, JUST CULTURES ARE DIFFERENT AND
THE BRITISH ARE JUST NOT INTO THE SAME AS YOU AMERICANS. PLEASE TAKE
THAT AS A BIT OF ADVICE AND NOT CRITICISM I CERTAINLY COULDN'T CRITICIZE
A MAN LIKE YOU.
ANYWAY KARL, ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU SO VERY
MUCH FOR YOUR HELP AND CONCERN. YOU HAVE BEEN A BREATH OF FRESH AIR.
YOURS MOST GRATEFULLY.
One thing you
have said is absolutely right. Each of us must make our own decisions.
You should never
be forced to do anything.
The idea that you
are making steady progress toward your goal is of paramount importance.
That you have the
right direction to head in is also of vital importance.
The speed of that
progress is less important than making progress toward YOUR own goal.
Jane, there is
one other whole area of help I might provide.
I have found that
people who have gotten stuck with methadone, or valium, ALWAYS have around
them, individuals ("friends" ?) who put them down, invalidate them,
tell them what to think and do.
Such people are
more harmful than the drugs themselves.
These are most
usually people who are family, or very close to you.
They seem to act
in the guise of friendship and love, but what they do is make you prone to
illness and willingness to do things to yourself (take drugs) that are
You will probably
immediately know someone like this in your life.
THAT person is
more your enemy than the drugs -- because THAT person affects you so,
mentally, that you feel that drugs are the necessary answer.
I don't know who
that person is in your life, but I know that such person exists.
You have only two
choices about that person:
Disconnect from him or her (often very difficult)
the situation so that they don't affect you so much -- usually this means you
talk to them and say something like, "I ask that you stop from telling me
that I am no good . . . ." or whatever.
There would be
nothing more important for you to do than recognize and handle the source of
the suppression in your life.
Let me know.
I RECEIVED YOUR REPLY AND I AM JUST LETTING
YOU KNOW THAT I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. AND YES! I
HAVE HAD PEOPLE LIKE THAT IN MY LIFE. THE BIGGEST OFFENDER BEING MY
SON'S FATHER. HE WAS THE MOST UNSCRUPULOUS PERSON I HAVE EVER KNOWN
IN MY LIFE. HE DID NOT CARE WHO HE TOOK DOWN WITH HIM. AND HE ALSO
HAD TO BE THE ONE CALLING ALL THE SHOTS. HE WAS OVERPOWERING, EVEN WHEN
WE EVENTUALLY SPLIT UP. HE STILL WOULD NOT LET ME GO. FOR MANY
YEARS HE KEPT ME DOWN, MADE ME FEEL ALL THOSE THINGS YOU MENTIONED.
EVENTUALLY, I JUST JUMPED ON A TRAIN WITH MY SON, AND CAME BACK HOME TO
MY FAMILY, THE ONLY PEOPLE I CAN NOW TRULY TRUST. THEY HAVE GIVEN AND LOTS
OF SUPPORT AND STILL DO. THEY ARE NOT INTERFERING, JUST HELPFUL AND
UNFORTUNATELY, MY SONS FATHER
STILL POPS IN AND OUT OF MY LIFE. HE STILL TRIES TO ENTICE ME INTO
TAKING THIS OR THAT. BUT, I AM OLDER NOW, I AM STRONGER AND I CAN
JUST SAY NO! WHICH IS A GREAT JOY TO ME. HE TRIES TO USE NOT ONLY
DRUGS, BUT MONEY TOO. EVEN THOUGH HE DOES NOT SUPPORT HIS OWN SON
FINANCIALLY. EXCEPT, A GROSS AMOUNT OF POCKET MONEY FOR A 15YR OLD
BOY WHICH IS TO BASICALLY UNDERMINE ME . THANKFULLY, HE WAS NOT
AROUND WHEN MY SON WAS GROWING-UP, SO, MY SON HAS HAD THE INFLUENCE FROM ME
AND MY FAMILY. HE IS NOW WELL AWARE THAT HIS FATHER IS A VERY SICK MAN
AS REGARDS HIS EMOTIONAL STATE AND HIS OPINION OF MONEY. MONEY IS POWER
TO HIM. I AM NOT OF THAT OPINION. TO ME, LOVE IS THE WAY AND SO
MY SON CAN SEE HIS FATHERS WRONGNESS.
is a very fine thing to recognize this source of suppression in your life.
You may not yet realize how deadly that was, and more importantly you may
not yet realize HOW to handle that.
only two choices are to DISCONNECT or HANDLE. Disconnection would mean
that you find some way that you never receive any further communication from
him. Not easy, but you can move in that direction.
means that either YOU are no longer the effect of his communications, or you
get HIM to change.
me know how this all seems -- it is only your life and future!
AS FOR ANY OTHER PERSON TRYING TO TELL ME
WHAT IS BEST FOR ME, I DON'T HAVE THAT. I DO NOT SOCIALIZE, I HAVE NOT
HAD THE STAMINA FOR FRIENDSHIPS AS FRIENDSHIPS ARE A TWO WAY THING. AND
I NEVER KNOW WHEN I WILL BE FEELING STRONG ENOUGH OR, ABLE ENOUGH TO BE THERE!
FOR A FRIEND. SO, THE ONLY OTHER CONTACT WITH SOCIETY ON A CLOSE
LEVEL, IS AT THE CLINIC I ATTEND FOR METHADONE/VALIUM. THERE, I RECEIVE COUNSELING,
probably the "clinic" is also suppressive to you. Certainly
I am sure that the "counseling" is suppressive.
It may be more
subtle since these people SEEM to be helping, and you might even think they
want to help.
Do they "evaluate" your condition? Almost all counselors do
exactly that. or, they tell you that something you are doing is
"wrong," or "bad."
Is it devoted to getting you OFF drugs -- all drugs, or only giving you
drugs to ease the pain??
terribly bad news for you, Jane, and any place that USES drugs to help
relieve the pain of drugs is an evil suppressive influence on your life.
Let me know.
ACUPUNCTURE (WHICH WORKS BRILLIANTLY
WITH MSM. BY THE WAY).
[Karl:] Acupuncture and
MSM are positive things. Clinics usually not, counseling hardly ever!
I SEE A DR. EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS
THERE. ATTENDING IT EVERY 2WKS. THEY ARE ACTUALLY TRYING TO
ADDRESS THE DRUGS PROBLEM IN THIS COUNTRY, HENCE, THE MEETING I HAVE SPOKEN
ABOUT. WHICH, ME BEING INVITED, AS A SO CALLED PATIENT IS NOT USUALLY
THERE IS NO LONGER ANY PERSON IN MY LIFE WHO
TRIES OR EVEN GETS CLOSE ENOUGH TO ME TO ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE THINGS I NO
LONGER WANT NOR NEED TO DO. I AM JUST NO LONGER INTERESTED.
I HAVE BECOME SO MUCH STRONGER OVER
THE PAST 10YRS. STAYING ON METHADONE AND VALIUM IN ORDER TO STAY ON MY
FEET TO BRING MY SON UP. NOW HE IS OLDER, I HAVE THE DESIRE AND THE
VISION TO KNOW WHAT I AM ABLE TO DO AND WHAT I AM NOT.
I DO KNOW, AS I SAID AT THE BEGINNING, WHAT
YOU ARE SAYING, AS I SAY THE SAME THING TO LOTS OF OTHER PEOPLE MYSELF.
DRUG ADDICTS DO NOT LIKE TO BE ON THEIR OWN, THE FEEL INSECURE WHEN THEY HEAR
A FRIEND OR EVEN JUST SOMEONE THEY OCCASIONALLY TAKE DRUGS WITH SAYING THEY
ARE STOPPING. THEY TEND TO FEEL THEY ARE GETTING LEFT BEHIND OR
SOMETHING, AND ENCOURAGE OR, TRY TO GET THE OTHER DRUG USER TO CONTINUE.
YOU KNOW KARL, I HAVE BEEN OUT OF THE
DRUG SCENE FOR SO MANY YEARS NOW, I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANYONE, EVERYTHING SEEMS
TO HAVE CHANGED ANYWAY. AND I AM BEST OFF THIS WAY.
I HOPE THIS HELPS CLEAR UP ANY FEARS YOU MAY
HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT MY PROBLEM. I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO BE CONTROLLED OR
MANIPULATED THE WAY IN WHICH I WAS. BRINGING UP MY SON HAS HELPED ME BE STRONGER.
THAT IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN. ANOTHER PERSONS LIFE, AN INNOCENT.
THAT IS MY STRENGTH. THAT IS THE WAY IN WHICH I FOUND MYSELF
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR CONCERN, BUT
REALLY KARL, I HAVE COME INTO MYSELF, FOUND MYSELF. AND WHEN I GET
"CLEAN" I WILL REALLY BE ON A ROLL. AND YOU WILL HAVE PLAYED A
PART IN THAT. THANK YOU!
sorry it's taken me so long to get back to
you since the weekend.
I've been quite busy with going to the
Merseyside Annual drug meeting. Trying to put some things together.
That being MSM. I did manage to get it to someone who has apparently
been going over to the states to see how they are doing things over there.
Anyway, I have to say it was a big let
down. Apart from getting my message about MSM. over to the female who is
in charge of the Acupuncture, hopefully, she will read the information and realize
there is a place for it in drug rehabilitation.
With regards to what you were saying about
drug councilors and clinics, your absolutely right. I often find myself
worrying about THEM, themselves, some of them are in such a mess.
Over here, our councilors have all been
addicts of one sort or a kind. And the bunch we have now are new.
They are very young and quite immature, though you do tend to get the odd one
or two who are good and sincere about their work.
As basically, WORK is all it is.
I've been going to clinics for many years now, so have no illusions as regards
the people who work there.
YES! all they are really there for, IS to
get their clients off drugs. And, i guess as far as the clinic is
concerned or the government, that is the goal. More so now I might add.
Though I do find it sad for the man who began this side of drug abuse and it's
clinics, as he is a really good man. He believes in the same things as
you as regards help and support. Unfortunately, the staff don't see it
the same way, well not very many.
So, i do understand what you are saying, but
for now, until i reach my goal of coming off, i am going to just have to carry
on until i no longer need them. Also, I'd just like to say that, even
though i have been aware of "Assertiveness" for a while now, i find
it hard to do, i am just not that way. I'm more the kind of person to
let the other get sick and tired of getting nowhere with me.
My son's farther was on the phone to me
the other day and, i was so pleased with myself in the way in which i handled
him. I do believe you were whispering in my ear or, standing beside me.
I don't think he will be bothering me for a wee while now. But, you know
karl, with some people, you just cannot say things like "Please don't
talk to me like that as it upsets me" or whatever. As some people are
just plain old bad. Nasty and cruel even. He is such a person. and is
the kind to put the phone down on you, wait a month or so, then come back in
the hope i will be in a different mood.
Normally, that would have worked.
Not anymore though, i have put him in his place a number of times now,
and i am getting better, even enjoying it. No! that's not true. I find it very
sad to be honest.
I always thought i could help him but,
you cant help a psychopath can you?
So, karl, I am doing fine, feel fine with
MSM. My anxiety level is so much better, i feel i can handle things so much
more affectively and in general i feel i am doing really well.
It wont be long now till i will be back to
my old self, whoever she is.
So once again, i would just like to say
thanks. And you may or may not be hearing from someone to do with "Merseyside
Drug Clinics" Hope so!
It sounds to
me that you are moving along just fine.
I would rather
see you move more rapidly on getting off Methadone, but you have a logical
view of things.
advice I can further offer would be that you can help yourself with MSM, but
also by adding sauna and exercise -- since you can't get rid of the drugs in
your system without sweating. There is much, much more to the Narconon
program. I went on it for 40+ days and have helped hundreds of people
get off drugs.
But you have
the most important characteristic -- you want to get off the stuff.
informed on your progress.
I will always
Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. But,
even today trying to return your last e-mail and, learn how to use the
computer a bit better. I tried to do what you did by writing between
paragraghs. Inevitably, it all went wrong and i've ended-up wiping it, though
i have got it on a file.
I dont know if, when i've been replying to you,
you've been getting
ALL! the e-mails we've sent. Could you let me know
Anyway, as regards as getting into a sauna, be it
hot or, just warm, i just cannot even think about it. They really freak me
out, a phobia I guess. In fact, it was when i saw they used a sauna at
"Narconon" that hit me straight off. I just couldnt handle
them. I do understand the reason and how it helps. It was something that lots
of friends used to
do when i lived in Edinburgh.
As for exercise! another of my hates, though i do
love sports. I'd prefer to get my exercise that way, though i'd need to do it
very carefully. Mind you i'm not particuarly ready for that just yet.
As for coming off "Methadone"
quicker, then yeah! I agree. I've serously been thinking of doing it faster
with 5mls as opposed to just 2. I really feel i could do it now. My
joints dont hurt so much lately and, i've also already stopped taking one of
my "Diazepam", which i just happened to do because i found i was
getting up and forgetting to take them. So, it's obvious i can do it without
too much trouble. I'm getting there....
You say you have helped lots of people get off
drugs. Is that the "Narconon" way?
I really feel i just could not do that.
I hate to leave my son Julian. It's only ever been him and myself and, my
family. But, Julian and I are very tight. It hurts. He's a sensitive wee soul.
There's also the matter of things like money.
Something I have not wanted to mention. I cant just pack up and go
away. I've alot of obligations to my family which makes it hard to even begin
to think about leaving them for any length of time. I dont want to, it's not
my personality. And I know i have to think about myself and all that.
My family certainly wouldnt stop me from helping myself, they'd want
me to. But, I just cant do it. Foolish pride and all that.
Any advice via the "Net" is brilliant,
as i mentioned when i last spoke to my sons father (you whispering in my ear,
was the affect, which helped). I just feel i need to be free to do, whatever?
So, as much as i appreciate "Narconons"
help and support. I'm going to have to do this my way. I really hope you dont
get offended, as that is not my intention at all. I feel I must leave
"Narconon" out. I couldnt do it that way, I really can't put myself
through that, it's punishment.
Last thing, diet! I'm a "veggie "and
have been for years now. 9 yrs old actually. I get drinks off my
"Dietician" that have lots of Vitimins & Minerals, which will
hopefully be getting into my systym now with the help of MSM. I have
got a good diet though. I've realised my youthful mistakes. Hope this gives
some view as to where i'm coming from and what i'm like as a person.
So, for now, I shall leave you. And I do hope
you hear from someone over here from the "Merseyside Drugs Coucil".
I passed on some info. But, i think i told you that.
I'll keep in touch and let you know how i'm
getting on. And Thanks again, you have been brilliant. Sorry this is so long,
i'll be taking up all your space.
are two roles I can take, at least, with someone I write to:
Advice and help
Judging on behavior and actions.
I try not to judge much.
you have indicated SO MANY things that you are doing that are self-destructive
that I can no longer offer help, other than to let you know that you are
I understand from below that you are still caring for your son? Is he
still on drugs? You cannot help him while YOU are on drugs, and you
cannot help yourself as long as HE is on drugs and living with you.
choices are not pleasant, but they are the choices you have to make.
