    Well I basically summed it up in the title. Im 38 and have 3 boys 20, 18, 8. They live with my parents cuz I'm just a complete mess. Have no job have applied everywhere. I have the best parents alive. I was strung out on pills like 8 years ago and was lean for 5 but tried that dog food and it got me now I've just completely drained my parents savings by using excuse after excuse don't see my sons more than a couple times a week cuz I don't want them to see me like this. I'm with a man who Luis me dearly but he is in the same boat. We r functional junkies and r looking for employment I have a degree in computer science and he is the best and I mean best tile man in the state, but there is just no work anywhere. I pay my bills, groceries, etc. but what is ripping my heart out is ding this to my parents. I've went through thousands and thousands of dollars and they r at the age of retirement and shouldnt have to put up with this shit! I luv them so much they're all I have. I'm an only child and have not one friend. I believe I'm bipolar also and am literally at the end of my rope but ive been hanging on for one reason and one reason on,y my 8 year old Conner. He is my heart but I want what's best for I'm and don't want him to see his omma like this. I don't know where to turn or what to do. If anyone could just talk to me I'd appreciate it more tha u could ever imagine. Help!

    hey, you may want to try getting into a methadone program or maybe suboxone.

    The worst thing that you could do for your parents and for your kids would be to kill yourself.

    If you can get into a good treatment program, there's a good chance that you will be able to find work and pay your parents back. Not any easy road, but it can be done.

    There is a forum here to talk about addiction issues. Also there are some other forums on the web that have some info on opiates.

    I've read that suboxone is a better treatment than methadone because it has a lower potential for abuse. I think it's more expensive though

    hope that things can get better soon!

    I have heard a lot of people doing good on both these medications. Definitely something to consider if you're still having difficulty.

    Hi Bluegrassgirl, I just wanted to say.
    I am:
    have one 8.y.o son
    live with my parents.
    addicted to heroin for over ten years.
    I know how you feel. I am sure of it.
    I can not offer answers.
    I cant just say "do this do that this is how u fix it"
    All I can say is I am here with you.
    We can talk if that helps.
    I am glad YOU have someone.
    I will be honest. Having an addict bf/gf/whatever makes it harder to stop.
    BUT does NOT mean yall cant.
    All i can say is
    Something must be done.
    We can fix this.
    It will suck and I know I am scared
    but we can fix this.
    Please respond.
    I dont have anyone to discuss with.
    No pressure if u cant respond REALLY.
