Re: Any Advice?...
May 25, 2003

First good job on keeping focused. You sound like I did when I was detoxing...I actually got pissed off at the pills, the control they had taken over my life, and the misery they caused me. I am almost 2 weeks clean from Lortab/Ultram addiction. I had a huge opiate addiction and decided that my life was going down a dead end path and Id be dead before the path if not stopped. You sound determined and that is awesome. After the physical w/d part is over, the emotional and mental part is a little tougher for some. The chemicals in the brain get so flip flopped, stopped, and started while on opiates that it takes a while to feel like you did pre-accident. I did not sleep for 3 days while detoxing(only got through because of the people's support here on the board) and am just now finding it easier to sleep...and that is after 2 weeks. Energy can also be a bummer. We have 4 wheelers, Sea-Doos, and horses and I am making myself be active, even though I would rather sit in the house...slow but sure my energy is coming back. Was even able to take the quads to the beach this weekend and just got back from Morro Bay. Much props on your sucess of beating the control the pills had on you.
