Don't forget about AFTERCARE. :)
I am soooo happy for you!!! I am W/D-ing to and physically I have felt better this time than I ever did b4 (9 yr addiction to Oxy's). Maybe there's something in the air/water etc...LOL...I do have a question for you though. Even though the physical aspect is at least bearable, how are you doing with the mental aspect? This seems to be where I am struggling! Thanks and God bless!!
I am still here and am proud to say I made it through yesterday and last night, I even slept last night about 4 hours and I am still feeling the same. I am now officially past my 72 hour mark...lol.... Dont get me wrong.....this is hard,..but I seemed to always have problems around day 2 and always caved by day 3. I feel heavy so to speak.....kind of like I have concrete feet but other than that I am doing okay. As far as after care goes I am not sure yet what I am going to do. I have amazed myself that I have even made it this far. I havent even began to deal with the mental aspect of this because I was so terrified that I would never get through the w/d. I do believe taking the vitamins helped a lot and I have prayed, every minute of every day it seems like but something is totally different this time. Now I keep thinking "why didnt I do this before". lol.....anyway I will succeed this time. I have never been more determined than I am now. I will use this site a lot as even though I dont post everyday I do get on here and read about everyones success......and ......set-backs. This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. As you said country girl, yes the mental part stinks, I did have a dream last night that I was in the Dr,s office and did wake up in a panicked sweat but that passed pretty quickly. I have attended a few aa meetings and that is what I will probably continue to do. My brother is a recovering addict and he goes to meetings so I am just going to tag along with him for a while. I just keep in mind one day at a time. This is the furtherst I have ever gone in almost 12 years. I am going to go shopping today. Not much, but as someone told me on this site to reward myself after ever milestone for a while. I think 72 hours clean is a major milestone for me. I have been up since 3 am but I have taken the trash out, picked up the house etc.....things I wouuldve never dreamed I could do without pills........Thank you all for you support and words of kindness........I dont think I could've ever gotten this far without the help from all the people on this site. I originally started this journey at the end of April and as I said never made it past day 3. I am just so happy right now. It is so amazing how much clearer things get as each day passes.
May God Bless You All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats and keep it up you are doing great!!
Being mentally prepared for withdrawal plays a major part in it. I started taking vitamins, exercising little by little and drinking lots of water, on day 7 now and finally feeling a little better!
Dont give in no matter what, going thorugh WD gets harder and harder once you have gone through it before because you become terrified of the pain that will come.
I am in the same boat as you and physically I am struggling, but mentally for the most part I am so proud od myself that nothing can take that away (not even my concrete feet :)). I have 22 days off of methadone under my belt and there is no way I am going back. The first 2 weeks were literally hell, but now I am just dealing with my body trying to function on it's own again. I started taking vitamins too so that may have something to do with it, but like you I just surrendered to God to get through it. And that's the only way to go. Not only am I getting my body back in order, but I have also re-newed my relationship with Him and that is the best feeling in the world. We have taken that big hole we were filling with meds and gave it to God. And in return He filled it with the Holy Spirit. We both have a long way to go, and if you read some of my posts I have been up and down and back up again. But I know I am better than yesterday, and if I keep with it (which I will), I will be even better tomorrow. Even if it one of my "bad" days, I know I am on my way. Good luck and God bless.
Yay!!! You are AMAZING!!! You're doing super awesome!!! That's so good :) Keep your head up and you will make it, you're going to do this!!! I love that you are going shopping, buy something for me too okay?! lol just kidding!!! I love it though! Awesome! Just think about how much shopping you will be able to do after it's all over and you don't have to worry about the pills anymore :) Keep it up!!!
