Hi Sandie! How have you been?? I always wonder how you're doing with Tram or if you were able to get off of it. I remember you having a horrible time with the w/d's. I understand that it's difficult to find the right time to jump off of these awful pills, especially if you have a busy life...it's makes everything harder to do...as if getting through the w/d's isn't hard enough.....I just wanted to let you know that you're still thought of...and all of us are here to support you. I hope you're doing well..
Just a quick note to say hi! sandie...It sounds like your doing well. I was on Tramadol for a year for tooth nerve pain. I still have that but use aspirin now. I'm about 90 days out and feel pretty good. I still have lingering depression and sleep problems. I also get hot flashes in the morning mostly. All in all I am feeling better. it really is a long haul. Keep going your going to feel so much better soon...Keep in touch...
I hate the standard greetings.
Today is better than yesterday and tomorrow is just today to come.
I was reading through your most recent post and saw that you were a prison nurse. I was recently in jail due to my tramadol addiction (prescription forging) and I was going through the withdrawals there. I'd have to see the nurse twice a day and had bps of like, 170/120 and pulse of 170. they'd ask what I was coming off of and I said Ultram, and they were like, yeah right. None of them recognized my need (I was coming off 40+ pills a day too). So I just found it ironic and wanted to reach out. I am now on Day 11 off the trams and just looking for someone out there who keeps up to date on this thing to talk to. Good luck!
Just a quick note to say hi!

Hiyas Sandie, I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that you are not alone and YOU CAN DO THIS, if it is what you truly want. I responded to you in Emily's journal. I hope it helps!
