Yes I have but only when it was that or jail time. The last relapse lasted a number of weeks before I was attacked by a male 'friend' in my home. I fought him off, called the cops, pressed charges, went to court, reported all violations. Being in the courthouse that much I figured I'd better look like a productive member of society cause I didn't want to be stereotyped. Plus Im going through some pretty serious health problems. so I quit using meth. Now with my current medical issues (Im suffering from splenomegaly caused by a Hereditary Blood Disorder called Heredtary Spherocytosis). It has caused my to lose more weight then when I was using. Id hate to think I could be alive using right now.
My son was diagnosed during the 6th or 7th year when he lived with my parents. So he would have been between 7 or 8 year old. when he moved up here he was taking supposed to be taking Strattera, but he hid more than he took & Im unemployed at the moment also due to my health (I was fired while out on FMLA). The relationship between us is temoltuous to say the least. He won't even try in school he's getting D's & F's (even when given MAJOR INCENTIVES).I had a meeting with his school I think its called 504 hearing or something like that.
Anyway, it was supposed to help make changes in the way he's taught due to the diagnosis's. But, it isnt really working out to well for him. And we are currently in counseling, but it just started 4 weeks ago when he got in trouble for showing up to school high (he started smoking pot sometime over this last summer), no doubtedly my fault though...
