Moved back to my home in Virginia
« on: March 28, 2007, 12:09:18 PM »
Well after being away from my home here in Virginia and making the mistake of moving away from here. I have made it back to my home again. My parents are much more supportive of my well being now. They just want me to live a healthy life and too know that there will always be food on the table.

Just one thing this time things are different than they were before. My folks came down to help me move all my stuff back here. I get a home cooked meal each day. I'm taking my meds like I'm suppose too.

Just had had enough of my current livivng situation and with my numbers and my health was not all good I choose to come back here. I have a roof over my head, place to lay my head down at night. Not to mention I don't have to pay rent. Just have to pay the utilities power, cable, internet. No phone but who needs a phone when there is no one to talk too.

Health wise I'm doing ok. Meth well that is another story. Just tried it with a few friends not an addict, don't get me wrong. It's cool to do it with friends but I'm not going to fork out that amount of money to ruin my life. I know it is wrong to do meth. Things were really getting me down to the point I said what the hell I will try anything once.

My next Doctor visit will not be until June of this year. Hopefull the next time I go back my numbers will improve. I am now taking Viramune 200mg twice a day now. Also I have to go every month and take a breathing treatment Nebupent 300mg. So far I have not had any problems with these meds. Just the vivid dreams from time to time with Viramune. ::)

Other than that I'm doing ok. Just glad to be back home. :-*

Hi Jerry, I'm glad you posted, I was just thinking about you yesterday.

Glad you're back home and that all is well for now.

Hey Jerry,

I'm glad you are safe and sound and in a good place. As far as the playing about with Tina, well, that's something you can now always say, "Been there, Done that, Over it."

Well Mark have been there and done that and kinda liked it in some ways or the other.  :P

I live in an area now that Meth labs are everywhere. This county for sure is bad for alot of meth setups. Everyday there is something on the news about this area that some meth lab was found. Drug stores are robbed at least once a week here.

I am happy to hear that you're home, much better living situation than you've been in lately. 
I don't know much about meth use, but I do know that is a road that you shouldn't be traveling. Like Robert said, save your money for SF :)

Please look after yourself

I am glad for you.  Must echo the warning about the crystal use. Meth and those dealing it can do damage fast. As you mentioned, they are a ruthless bunch. Careful about drawing it into your peaceful homefront.
Be well, good looking.

All I can say is be careful.  Careful not to loose the life you have built after finally leaving home, and careful with the drugs.

You for one, don't have the physical or emotional strength to "be a player" and "partier".   I know you don't, because I have met and talked with you, and you are like me in many ways, and I see a man that is tempting the devil to play with meth.  I won't even touch the shit, and I have tried just about everything out there, but meth, cocaine, and acid are strictly no-no to me.  I did try cocaine one time and it was so very nice, I made sure never to take it again, as I would become hopelessly hooked.

You need to deal more with who you are and becoming self empowered enough to say no to that shit, and living at home is going to make it 10 times more difficult. 

Love you Jerry, please take care of yourself.

If things are better, so far, being back at home, then moving away wasn't a mistake.  It might be just what was needed to make folks (you and the family) realize that things at home can't be like they were prior to you leaving.  Remember how miserable you were?  If your first venture away from home didn't work, there will be other opportunities for you to improve your situation once YOU figure out what YOU want and need from life.  Like the others, I'd stay away from Tina.  Nobody starts out planning on being a meth head or a junkie.  It's like smoking.  One or two isn't so bad, but how many stay at that level?  If the temptation is really strong for Tina, I'd think that a move to a place that's no so infested might be beneficial, but you can decide that by just saying "no to drugs" (how quaint and corny, especially coming from a pot head).  I think I may have tried some once, under the guise as coke, but as bad as it burned my nose and made me sneeze, it was definitely something other than coke.  I personally can see no good in adding one more problem to an already complicated situation - living with HIV or AIDS.  Learn to like yourself... no, learn to LOVE yourself and treat YOU like you would anybody else you care  a lot about.  Take care of yourself like you'd take care of them.  Learn to be a good friend to yourself, if not your own best friend.  It's not easy sometimes, but if one can manage to do so, things seem to fall into place so much easier.  Take care and congrats. on the family's support.

Ok with all the comments on Meth no more for me. It was a one time thing just like Mark said been there done that ain't going back to that. Just feel bad for those that get hooked on it and it can be very addicitive. I have learned my lessons to not get hooked on it and I have a new life to live here now. I will take your advice and stay away from T. :-*
