Well for the past 3-4 days i have started the weaning process. Today I will only take 5 and tomorrow 4 and so on.....well i woke at 4:45 AM and couldn't go back to sleep!!! For the past two months I have been sleeping til at least 8:30 or 9:00...getting very lazy....Not today!!! The stupid sun wasn't even up yet, but in a way I found it sort of refreshing, Pre-pill I got up at about 5:30 every day. Not too many w/d symptoms yet....I started taking 8, then 2 days later I only took 7 and so on and so forth. Hopefully w/d will be my highest level I was taking 8 or 9 percs.....I feel like I am doing o.k. except I am starting to feel that craziness start in my head, as soon as I got up I started harping on stuff in my head....this is how I get myself into a tizzy. I truly do want to get off of these stupid pills....that is all i freakin think about....I really had a hard time only taking 6 yesterday. But the craving to take "one more" only lasted about a half an hour, I took a xanax and went to bed at about 9:30.....This is the first time i tried weaning...I have always went cold turkey which brings on severe w/d symptoms. I have no self-discipline with those little devils, so I have really made myself proud in the past few days. I only have 9 left, so this weekend shouldn't be too much fun....I am a little concerned about school shopping and my step-son's b-day party this weekend, but it seems keeping busy and not sitting at home is what really helps me get thru it. The only problem I can see at this point, is that Saturday, I know I can get more....hence the vicious cycle....sooooooooooo I guess I could use some encouragement today, I feel a little lost and I don't know why because I have done this about 20 times. I am hoping this time is the last!!!!!! Hope everyone is well and has a great day!
