Wish me luck please
I am going to talk to my boss today about my pill hoarding. She is a social worker and a very good friend. I know that I will not lose my job and I know she won't talk to anyone else about it at work.
She mention yesterday in a email that she wanted to talk to me about getting me more paid hours. Where I work I only get paid for about half of the work I do, the rest is volunteer, we are a non-profit organization that is why I do that!
But anyways, I have been trying to not do as much with work, church, my son's school so that I can try and work on myself. I will need to explain that to her.
I am also going to phone my doctor and make an appointment to 'hand in ' my pills and see about going on a pain patch. I was talking with my pharmist about them and he thinks it would be a good idea.
My ucler is just killing me today and it just because I am stressing over talking with my boss. So all I really want to do is take some pills to help me but I am trying hard not to!!!
Thanks for listening!

Good luck. When I'm stressed, which is often, I assure myself that I can take some pills tomorrow. For today, I'll deal with life.

I completely understand. When I was/am stressed.....its really hard to get my mind off the pills. Im about a month clean and I spend a LOT of time thinking about them. It makes me so angry!

It went great with my boss. I am very luckly to have the boss that i have. I felt so much better once I talked to her. Even before I said anything she know something was up though, she could tell I was stressed. She kept asking me if I was having suicidal thoughts since I have haorded soo many pills. But I reassured that I haven't been.
It was hard to get it out. It was the first time that I have actually said it out loud to anyone. I told her that I had joined an online support group and of course she agreed that that was a good thing!
I feel better now that my dirty secret is out though.
I tried to make an appointment with my doctor, that didnt' go as well though. I couldn't make it in for 2 weeks. But I am going to phone on Monday and tell them that it is an emergancy and I have to see her that day!!
Thanks for your support, it has helped me alot!!
