"I wish there was something I could enjoy but there really isn't" That sums up my life. I've been on subutex for exactly 3 years. It was a miracle for my addiction, at first. It actually made my life better for quite some time. It's awful that I feel like this after 2 1/2 years. I had a really stressful incident occur recently and ever since, I've become so severely depressed, it is not even comparable to the way I felt when addicted to pain med's. At least then, I knew I would feel better as soon as I found some pills. Now, it's bleak. I have the subutex, can take it whenever, but it is not helping at all. I hate my doctor. I feel like he doesn't care how I feel, as long as he gets his money. And he's a psychiatrist. I have 3 sons that need their old mom back, but I do not know how to make that happen. No joy from all the things that used to cheer me up. Exercise now seems like a chore rather than fun. Reading, my favorite thing in the world, I could care less now. I am also losing my faith in God. I wish I did not even have to say that, but I am being honest. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone. I know it's not much comfort, but I am sitting here feeling the same as you.View Thread
