Looking for friends who struggle too

Hi I am a former heroin user/opiate addict in the Prescott Arizona area I struggle with staying off it and I have a lot of pain issues. I am on pain meds which I take a HUGE amount of disapline to not abuse and so far Im winning that war. I would like to be back on a harm reduction program but circumstances have kept me in a VERY remote location in the country and so I HAVE to be careful. I have no choice. I have Hepatitus C and I've had it for 18 years. I don't drink. Lately I am feeling really sick and I think my Hep C is acting worse but I just don't know. I have to find a new gastroenterologist (spelling?) I just have a pain clinic which I have to drive all the way to Phoenix for. (97 miles one way)
I was on interferon in 1999 (the old combo) and it didn't do anything except put me through hell. I lived in Oakland CA at the time. I would like to get on the new medicine - I was supposed to go on a trial in Denver but then I had to leave Denver.
I just feel really isolated at times so add me and I will add you and I can be there for you. If you would ever need to talk to somebody about these kinds of issues I would. I am not on any other social media. I like to write my feelings out. I am a female in her mid-40s. Thanks!

Hi, I hope you're still sober. I'm a 34 y/o female, alcoholic in recovery, I have about 4 months of sobriety and was looking for internet-friend with same interests. Can't stand isolation anymore.
Wish you all the best.
