read some of your post and you seem to give very inspiring advice.  I wanted to see if i could add you on my friend list so we could keep in touch.  I have a very long road ahead of me this week.  I am trying to taper off oxy but don't have enough and thursday will be the last dose.  I am still at 60mg a day.  We will see how it goes.  I am very scared!  I do think alot of this is in my mind.  My withdraw my not be as horrible as others but my mind has got me convinced of it!  I need all the support i can get.  thank you for listening.  jlb

Thank you for your reply.

I am just so lost, as to whom to trust. It seems I am now forced to head into Western Medicine, but I have so often seen it just trades one problem for another. Terrified if Zoloft doesn't work. Or, if it does, I can't stay on it forever, my body gets very sick with chemicals in it, no idea why, but I guess that's why I decided I didn't like meds.. and for moral reasons.

I feel like throwing myself out a window tbh. But dw, that won't happed, I am too much of a wuss and couldn't handle the fear or pain.

Thank you for trying to help. I am just so mad at myself for being sick, and the anger makes it worse. Just want to tear all of my own skin off :(

Today was the first day I felt good.  I really really felt good.  I got up at 6 a.m. and put my little girl on her bus  around 7:15 and felt great.  I went to physical therapy and grocery shopping and was very tired afterwards, and it made me remember how I got addicted to pain killers in the first place.  I did great today and hoping tomorrow is even better.  I gave the pills to my hubby.  I hope he quits soon.  He has been taking them longer than me.

Today is Nov 5.  Things are looking up.  I started counseling today and understand I need to hold my son accountable to the promises he made in seeking help.  So, today he goes to an LCDC for the first time.  Angry or not, he promised five sessions.  God is in control.  Thanks for asking.

Hi Hon, Sorry ur feeling crabby these days, but u'r SO entitled!  I'm same way, especially w/ Daylight Savings Time gone--Starts getting dark at 4pm. (Aghhhh!)
GOOD news is my Health Insur. came thru (YAY!) so I can move forward w/ surgery...that's been my holdup.  Once I'm past THAT, the REAL fun begins!  In meantime tho I've tapered my Fioricet w/Cod usage down significantly from what it was (wanna get Butalbital in my system down to 'manageable' level) so that's kinda major for me!  I stopped Valium at bedtime after realizing how totally DUMB it was since I tapered off 60mg/day addiction few years ago. Just a few little victories for me but nothin to get too excited about...still taking Codeine and use Vic's here 'n there. Sending u unshine and happy vibes!! SMILE!!!  Love, Libby

Hope YOU are doing well!  What's your recent status?  I could really use some motivation.  I just wrote a reply to "flob" after learning he'd been struggling with Fioricet as well. But would love to hear how you're doing also!  Pls let me know.  The sun came out here earlier today but clouds moving in again :(  Hope it's sunny there! (Pls tell me more about what it's like there. Have always wanted to move south...maybe not THAT far south tho. :)

HELLO! Thx for ur notes yesterday! It was rainy and miserable here, too -- sooo depressing! I'm very interested in the light therapy you spoke of. Does it really help? Living here in the midwest, we're entering into dismal winter season and have I've always been curious about that. I used to tan regularly but am too concerned about skin damage now... Also, how do I find Kolo13's post? I did a people search but don't know what community to look under??

ZJILLIAN: Thank you so much for all of the info and your support and compassion. I would try and go to an NA/AA meeting if I could or even contact over resources, but I am stranded without transportation so I have no choice but to do this on my own. However, I had a good day today. I only took 8 vicodins as opposed to the normal 18-20 that I took yesterday and am feeling really encouraged. Tomorrow I plan on taking 7. However, another lady on this site made some awesome recommendations on diet, exercise, showers, that kind of thing that I will start tomorrow. I am just so grateful for her and for you too ZJILLIAN for taking the time to share with me your experience and wisdom. You are very kind and I truly am so grateful for people like you who are so brave and kind. Thanks again.

VERY impressed you can hold out with pills in the house, I have nowhere near like that control!

Can totally relate to what you said, I seem sane/sober enough to realise my life is a trainwreak but not functional enough to fix it. I've just got some st johns wort & 5-HTP which seem to be helping with the depression. The 5-HTP is a serotonin precurser so should help, its dangerous to use with SSRIs though... Anyway, slowly trying to return to life, went out in the week to a pub, going to a job agency next week (asked friend to drag me there if needed).

Well done on 40 days! Its not easy but its gotta be better than the alternatives...

check my recent post for questions about immodium. I am considering speeding up my taper and possibly trying the thomas recipe to get the monkey off my back faster. I have access to just about every ingredient with me right now...any experience with this?
