Oh my goodness! First off, you made me cry (joy) second off I can't begin to tell you how happy I am for you...
that was one heck of a journey, huh?
I am so unbelievably proud of you. I hope someday you can appreciate the magnitude of exactly what YOU accomplished. Very few people have managed to jump from a hefty dose of fentanyl (50 mcg) like you did, stayed through it, fought the urges--the misery--the shakes, sweats, a OMG those creepy crawlies AND fnished it! To do so requires an unbelievable amount of devotion and inner strength--both of which you have plentiful amounts. You did battle with fentanyl, fought and struggled hard, and in the end--YOU WON!
D., I really want you to understand the strength that you have shown has given me--and others--so much hope. We hear about a lot about the failures and relapses, but not nearly often enough about the triumphs.
YOU are an amazing person, my dear!!! One of the many positive take-aways from this experience is an incredible, devoted life long friend. I will always be there for you, and I know you will always be there for me.
D., my dear, dear, friend. Thank you so much for all that you have given me and thank you for being YOU!
CONGRATULATIONS ON 19 HARD FOUGHT WELL DESERVED DAYS!! Let's make it 20, okay!! Soon I will be right there with you markihg them off. I know I can do it with your help!
and great great glory and thanks to God.. for everything....
Great post man! People need to hear that withdrawals aren't the end of the world. Things happen for a reason and like you said... thanks be to God!
Congrats on the 19 days!
I see your a Mets fan...hopefully they have a good year.
Good for you. I tried to CT off Fentanyl and wound up in the hospital. My pain doc didn't want me off it. I wound up tapering down on the Fentanyl, a little too quickly. I had oxycodone for BT pain that I didn't take too much of so I had extra to taper down once I was done with the Fentanyl. I think Fentanyl is not a good med for chronic pain. I would never use it again unless I was dying. You should be really proud of yourself. It,s not as hard or long as methadone or subs to come off but it took me a long time to feel really like myself.
Also congratulations on 19 days, great work!!
Thanks man! Was a helluva ride bump def not the end of the world.
