This is my second "return" to Riffle. I am amazed at how much the automobile accident took out of me and how badly some of the drugs interacted with my system.

Heck, Oxycodone, (An opioid pain medication) which is experiencing nation wide abuse gave me a high that left me not caring about my job or the stuff that made my life fun such as reading books, making Riffle book lists or writing.

When my prescription ran out, I even suffered (very) mild withdrawal symptoms for a couple of days.

Right now I'm taking things one day at a time. I've done a lot of reading since January (which was a total loss reading-wise) and I've started working at least two hours on book lists at Riffle just to see if I can keep the commitment.

So far, so good.
