Well coming up to 92 hours. I feel pretty good and am feeling better evey hour. I feel the acute WD are over and I'm getting ready for PAWS. I never thought I would be at this point but I am. If I can do this ANYONE CAN!!!!
I also want to say that music has helped me a lot over the past few days. Gotta find a song that makes you smile and get those endorphins pumping haha.
Well that's some of the controversy with suboxone. I didn't know I would have to go through WD when I was put on it. In fact my dr even told me I could've stayed on sub indefinitely. Which I think is ridiculous. It does help get you to transition from other opiates to a safer one but you end up in the same position in the end...
Wasn't able to sleep last night. Gotten a total of 12 hours of sleep in the past 106 hours... Ugh. The muscle aches are hitting pretty strong right now. That's what caused me to not sleep last night. But I finally got all the amino acid protocol together and have been using that.
Congrats! Thats awesome.....
I haven't had to suffer the withdrawals of suboxone yet as I am still taking them, but for me, suboxone was the only way to go. I had a 15 year vicoden addiction. If I had not been put on suboxone last month, the vicoden would have eventually killed me. Now, I'm not looking forward to getting off of suboxone, but I don't plan to be on it much longer and my doctor has a plan to wean me off of it.
I think suboxone is a great tool to be used to get off your DOC. But I feel like I should never have been maintained on it for 4 damn years. As a DOC WD substitute it's good, as a maintenance opiate it's bad. I feel the shorter your on it the better.
Update on my situation, almost to day 5. Was able to sleep for a few hours here and there today but still having a bad day. Blood feels like its on fire. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be better
