Wow, does time ever fly. The year 2016 is gone, and 2017 is here! It's been quite some time since I've posted, and I've had several of you reach out to make sure things are alright; so I wanted to take a quick moment to update everyone on how things have been going. TL;DR: Things are good! I can't complain, anyways.
Over the past two years, there have been some curious new additions to my living space. Prior to my journey through addiction and recovery, you wouldn't likely have spotted one of these in my apartment, let alone multiples (well, you might have found a dead one). Yet now, not only are there several of them in my home, I thoroughly enjoy caring for each and every one of them. Has recovery managed to somehow give me a love of plants and a 'green thumb'?
The topics of stigma, judgements and misinformation are nothing new when it comes to discussions on Methadone Maintenance Treatment. Methadone patients have long faced stigma from many different angles. Often times, misinformation and judgements go right along with it. But over my time as a Methadone patient, I've noticed that those judgements and bits of misinformation are not only coming from those unfamiliar with the treatment, but at times directly from within the MMT patient community itself.
