I guess I do get irritable sometimes… but I’m getting better at controlling my anger as I get older. One cool thing about a blog is that I can go back and see what I wrote years ago. In this case, I was looking for a post about telling the difference between opioid toxicity (from taking too much) [...]

Hey Dr. J-- I read this exchange and I have to say, in my opinion it isn't even close to showing a mean streak! I've seen some of your posts where I did think that you were unnecessarily harsh with a personal response to someone, and this was NOT one of those. You didn't even really get personal with the guy in this case, you just stated your opinions in a pretty straightforward clear manner. sure, a little sarcasm around the edges at times, but...I think if you look deeper in the archives, you'd find better (or worse, depending on how you look at it, that is, more "accurate") examples of when you sort of lost your patience and didn't focus completely on making sure your response was kind. and anyway, we can all understand getting fed up with yahoos (and others...) putting up negative comments under your posts, all of which you seem to put a lot of effort into all the posts, videos, etc, that you put up. And I do know for sure that your heart is in the right place and that your main objective is always one of good intentions. And you DO do a lot of good for a LOT of people, that is for sure. And we all succumb to our frustrations from time to time. If you find you have mellowed out some in recent years, that's probably a good thing for your own well-being, so I applaud that. Anyway, just my 2 cents. And as ever, thanks for all you do!

I'd like to emphasize an excellent point:
|Do you remember when you started Suboxone, how lousy you felt, and how Suboxone eliminated the withdrawal? YOU NEVER FINISHED GETTING OFF THE STUFF YOU WERE ADDICTED TO. There is no ‘free lunch’; Suboxone allowed you to avoid all that withdrawal; if you stop Suboxone, you have to finish the work you never finished before– going through the withdrawal that you ‘postponed’ with Suboxone! Welcome to the real world– you likely abused those pills for years, and if you don’t want treatment with Suboxone, you had better start a recovery program, or you will be right back to using again. (Emphasis mine) |
This is what I've been saying over and over! We were already addicted and we still have withdrawals coming to us!
There was also a pretty recent thread wherein I said when we stop taking sub we are still getting off the old opiates in our system and I got a LOT of argument by people here. I'm hoping maybe they will read this and rethink what I was trying to say.
Thanks, Dr. Junig. BTW, I like how you call people out on their shit. You're just telling it like it is. Just because they don't want to hear it doesn't make you rude or argumentative. Just my two cents. Keep up the awesome work, Dr. J. Thanks for all you've done.
