well im a 22 year old female who has been addicted to pain pills for 7 years, it all started when i was 15, i was just hanging out with my friends mostly drinking, i didnt really do drugs i just drank, but i got preg. by a guy i was with for about 1 year, i lost the baby when i was about 2 months. well i went to the hospital and they gave me something to help with the pain, it was a wrap from there. I just started with a hydro here and a hydro there, well i loved the high and the numb feeling, so i would go to the hospital an make something up to get em', well it got to were i was eating them everyday more and more.
1,2 skip a few years lol
well in 2008 i got in a bad car wreck 13 days before my 21st b-day, driving after consumption under the age of 21, it was the best worst thing thats happen to me, needless to say i broke my arm, 4 ribs, my ankle, fluid on my brain.....theres more but you get the point. they gave me pain pills also 90 perk 10s a month, it was about 3 months after the wreck when they started decreseing the pills, so i would just buy my own, it went from hydro to lori's to perks to OC's and rockys to opana's.
well i went to court and got put on 18 months supervised probation, i got **** tested every month,i would just drink a gallon of water before i went to see my PO, and i would pass. i missed my appt. in dec. cuz i was snorting opana's and they would f**k me up so bad i would nod and i just could go. well on jan the 6 of this year i had a drug test and i had been snorting opana 40s again, i couldnt miss it cuz she had came to my house to make sure i was coming, so i went an, my pee was dirty. well she told me to get clean and come back in a week, i looked at her and was like I HAVE A ADDICTION to pain pills and i wont be able to do it. THAT was the best thing ive ever done.
I had a 30 day suspended sent. and was on probation instead of in jail. i told her i wanted to do my 30 days, so i went to my parents gave them my keys and told them what i was doing
I HAD to quit cold turkey after 7 years, i detoxed for 14 days, the guards said i detoxed like a herion add. i puked, pooped cold sweats, cold chills, no sleep bad dreams when i did, i couldve cut my legs off, hearing voices, crying omg did i cry(about everything i mean everything), i laid in the bottom of a shower for 3 days throwing up until the guards picked me up and put me in a room and thats where i stayed for the first 11 days.I got out of jail on feb the 1st. People its not easy and if i said it was id be lying,but it took me going to jail to see just how bad off i was, dont let addiction get you like that, and beat you down.
FYI- trying to wing yourself off dont work or it didnt for me, it will be like ill quit today, no just one more, ok tomorrow.
Today is march the 22nd and i took 2 perk 10s, 2 days after i got out, my legs hurt that night. I havent touched em since.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE DEALING WITH THIS, I HOPE MY STORY HELPS YOU
LOTS OF LOVE CAROLINA GIRL :)
