To my readers and friends of this project, I first off express my regrets for my inability to post throughout recent months. I have been completely inavailable due to my incarceration over the spring. Interestingly, during this time I was forced to discontinue my daily buprenorphine maintenance at 16 mg, which I have taken consistently for years - this was done cold turkey, with absolutely no 'taper' while I was refused a detox protocol by jail medical staff, meaning no comfort meds were taken. After 2 straight months of zero buprenorphine, I was finally restarted during the last week of my sentence; rather than sidetrack however, I will cut to the chase. I plan to describe my buprenorphine ordeal in greater depth, with an entry of its own.
I was sentenced at the beginning of April to serve three months county jail time - With 'good behavior' taken into account, this turned out to be 75 days, roughly ten weeks.
Needless to say I am now HOME. I was released early this morning, and am here to say new entries and information are on the way very soon! Again, I apologize for my spring hiatus. Thanks for reading. - DM
