Thanks for the update, that is so refreshing to hear!
Keep hanging in. You are right. There are going to be good and bad days. Keep supporting her and she can and will pull out okay. Prayers for her and you. God bless.
This isn't an overnight thing. She can not live by days,you need to live minute to minute. Her brain is rewiring it's self to live without the meds. For some it can take months and months. But everyday does get easier. I know when I went through detox I had to be doing something or I'd think of my pain meds constantly!! Wheather it was going to a a/a meeting or even just a walk with the kids. Keeping busy really helps. Have you talked to anyone? There are alanon meetings for people like you that are living with a loved one going through this. You don't have to do this alone,these sites are great. But face to face is even better! Again you're a great hubby!! xox
Emotions will definitely be rocky for a while. I know for me, it lasted months. I was happy one minute, then the next I was p!ssed at the world. Maybe it's because for so long, our emotions are numbed up and honestly we don't feel anything. I agree with Krissy, you should definitely find an alanon meeting. What a great husband you are for supporting your wife through something so difficult. Good luck to y'all, take care!
Hi...well I have been following your story over the last few days first off congrats to her for wanting to get clean a a big Cudos for your supporting her my wife was a huge part of my recovery I agree with the other posters most people dont understand what is going on wile trying to help alaonon is a great progam and my wife has gone for years I would also encourage her to try N/A as much as you want to help she needs a safe place to share what she is going threw with people that will understand and be able to help...just because you stop the pills does not = recovery the addict in your head is alive and well long after the pills stop this would be a great thing you could do together she wont feel all alone in this any more google N/a meeting in your area....Gnarly
