    Hi. I've been on this site years ago. I'm 33 with a 2 year old. I'm a RN. I live with my boyfriend who has never used drugs in his life and can't relate to me and ignores the topic of addiction when it comes up. From the outside in it's all rainbows and butterflies. But, I'm a lost soul. I went back on subs after I had my daughter. No one knows. I continue to abuse the subs, valium, and Percocet. I go on binges. I'm a liar, a thief, a phony. This double-life is exhausting. I know NA meetings will help but I have some social anxiety. Just need to vent that out there. Thanks.

    We are only as sick as our secrets. Keeping it to yourself means that you dont want to let go of your addictions yet.

    When you get sick and tired enough of the double life you will take steps to make some changes.
    Do you really think that no one knows about your addiction? Just asking because I once thought the same thing, and though in the early years of my addiction no one did really know, it always progresses and eventually in one way or another, people will find out.. Things will get worse as time goes on.

    I hope you tell someone in your life about it and will get some help before your child gets too much older. In the meantime feel free to vent. Welcome back to ODR!

    You gotta get ahold of it before your career comes tumbling down. People probably suspect especially if your in the medical field. A girl who used to work in our office as a m/a got her r.n and working elsewhere. She comes to visit some and I am pretty sure she is doing something. It's obvious in the way she acts.
    Hope you seek help.
