Hang in there...I'm going through the same thing.
Tie a knot and HANG ON!! You CAN do this!!!!!
Hi! I'm so glad you posted. You will get so much support as you go through this. Do you have the "necessary equipment" there to get through this? Thomas recipe stuff? Gatorade? Advil? Heating pad?
Keep posting ok? Let us know how you are doing! : ) I'm cheering for ya!
you can do it , It is going to be hard but its worth it ,no more wondering about when you will run out of pills ...we are here for you
God bless you, I started today and this time i am determined, coming to this site helps
I'm going through WD's too. I know the fear you are feeling right now. I was feeling it too. I'm still have WD's, but not as bad. It will get better.
Remember, Our Bodies are way stronger than our minds. Gut this out and be done with it. After 10 years, at least 4 C/T, I'm 2 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes in and I could move a mountain right now. This site is awesome. It's over for me now...just another maybe 7 days of feeling like death and then it's back in the game. I'm close by if you need support.
I just went thru this about 2 months ago. I came thru it, so you can too. Exercise, if you can. Just get out and walk or go to your local mall and walk around if it's too hot outside. Take something for the diarreha (I can NEVER spell that word! LOL!). The worst part will be over in a few days.
its my 4th day with w/d's..ur gonna be not too bad the 1st day without it.but after that it might get tough..but i guess it all depends on the person..its not easy..have a strong will..keep saying to yourself that its for the better, and you have people in your life that need you...and def do something active as hard as it may be to do so...everyday i go to play basketball and it helps with the RLS and feeling bad...you just need to do your best to keep your mind off of it. Keep busy, you can do it!
I can relate.....Took my last pills today as well and I just don't even wanna wake up 2morrow morning.....I haven't a clue on how to deal with life anymore without "my pills"...Kids are starting school....so much to do.....IAM SCARED! BUT IAM DONE!
and by the way I also don't have a very understanding husband at all.I tried to ask for his support and all I got was .....Quit being a crybaby,its all in ur head and just be happy and get over it.....I really do wish I could just get over it and Iam trying not to be a crybaby:(
HI and welcome to the forum...well you got a lot of you just starting out here...first of try not to let fear into the equation it only make it worst and it is always worst in our minds then it really turns out to be...second go into this with a positive attitude when its all said and don you wont be chained to a pill bottle anymore...this is 1/3 physical and 2/3 mental so be ready to fight on both fronts....this is truly a battle one or lost in ones own mind...remember the symptoms are only temporary but get comfortable with the saying ''you just got to be ok without being ok for a wile''...this to shall pass with time...look up the thomas recipe and get the stuff to help ez the withdrawals my favorite therapy is a good long hot soak dont under estimate this therapy it really helps with a lot of the symptoms...get out and rent a bunch of movies your not going to be able to sleep so it will give you something to do will your up all night...I found laying on the couch with my eyes clased and some soft music playing in the background very soothing and it might be the closest thing to sleep you will see for a wile...take sleep when ever you can get it cat naps are the norm for a wile...and keep posting for support...also the buddy system works well on here theres alot of you starting out support one another... we will also be her to help you get threw this...may God be with all of you.....Gnarly
thank you, youve been very helpful. I s there any alternati ve to the hot bath, as I have other serious health issues where this is inadvisable
when i found the forum last week i was looking for a way to help my boyfriend with his withdrawal symptoms. i had never realized so many people from so many different walks of life were addicted to pills. good luck hon and when things get really though just think about you babies. and how much they need you. read some of the other messages and you'll realize that you not alone. help is here. good luck
Han in there, honey, you can do it. I came off hydro and morph june 22, I am 82years old and went cold turkey, I did what all these folks suggested and I am clean and starting to sleep better. If I can stand the CT', then you can too--no fun and not easy. We are all with you. jyv
HI sorry to here you cant do the baths...but showers will help also they will get rid of the creepy crawly feeling....I always recommend baths because it is relaxing also but a shower will do in a pinch...good luck and God bless.....Gnarly
