Ok, here's the problem

I've posted on here before asking about Suboxone and got a lot of helpful responses. Only difficulty was that I called around and there is only one doctor in my area who works with addicts and prescribes Suboxone and his waiting list is enormous and his charges are $400 for the initial visit plus $100 each week thereafter. OK, so, didn't do that.
I've been insufflating somewhere between 80 and 120 mg of Oxycontin for the past few months. I ran out of Oxy a few days ago and have been taking about 10 7.5/500 Lortabs......I've already started feeling a bit of withdrawals, but nothing really bad.
Now, here's where I'm really screwed. I seem to no longer have a source for Oxy's and my girlfriend and I are leaving for our long planned vacation to Bora Bora in 6 days. Today is July 29th and I have enough Lortab to last me for 2-3 more days WHICH MEANS that I will be right in the throes of withdrawals at the beginning of the trip which will last from Aug 4th till August 14th. Now, I do have Clonidine 0.1mg (40tbs)and 0.2mg(20tbs) , Ativan 1mg(27tbs), Temazepam 30mg(18tbs), Immodium 2mg, Motrin 600mg, and Pepto Bismol on hand. Do you think that will be enough to make the worst of the withdrawals at least tolerable so that I can enjoy this vacation? What else can I do? PLEASE someone help me out. We've been planning this vacation forever. I feel like God is punishing me for being an addict, and maybe he is, but I don't want to have a horrible time and I certianly don't want to ruin this trip for my girlfriend. Any advice about anything extra I might be able to do would be helpful. Supplements? Exercises? Foods? Also, do you think with the meds I have that it will at least be tolerable enough for me to enjoy myself? How much does the Clonidine and Lorazepam actually help? I've never used it before.
Thank all of you so much for your help and support the first time I mailed. I really do want my life to be back to normal. I know that my hand has been forced, but I think I'm going on the right track. In fact, my Oxy connection today said she might be able to get me more when I get back and I told her no. By then, I should be all the way through the withdrawals and only have to fight the cravings. I've done it before though. I was clean for almost two years before this. I can make it again. Forever this time. Thanks again for any help or support.
