day 7 and back at work

Today was my first day back at work after cutting out my last dose a week ago, it was a struggle but I made it.  I am still tired and I noticed my pain in my back was up a bit compared to when I was at home.

Hope everyone else is doing ok.

Take care

Hi Cindy,

Congratulations on your week!   Awesome work.  It is normal to have rebound pain after detox that can come and go...It takes awhile for brain to heal and your pain receptors to return to normal post-opiates.  Try heat...Bath, heating pad, hot water bottle.  I am proud of you....Be proud of yourself!
