Tyler Hope you are doing a bit better each day. Reach always comes up with the perfect posts to help everyone out. She is very wise, definitely listen to all of her words as she knows what is happening. I could say the same things as her as I have just gone through it myself and no it isn't easy and you have to be strong. I have just gone off of "suboxone" which is what the withdrawl clinic put me on after being on several pain killers for chronic pain in my neck. My system went into withdrawl after being on the meds, vicodin, oxycodone and xanax and my legs got very very restless. My doc treated me for restless legs and then I realized that it was in fact withdrawl and the only way to get through that was to take more opiates and I decided I would rather live with the "chronic pain" than take drugs. With the help of my "addictionologist" I tapered off slowly down to less than 1/8 of a suboxone (which helped me get off of the opiates but not a great drug to be on when it is time to stop). You can read up on "suboxone" withdrawl on these boards. Well I am on day 30 of being off and it took probably 3 weeks before I started feeling (normal) WHAT EVER THAT IS WHEN YOU ARE IN CHRONIC PAIN!!!!!. My worst problem besides feeling flu like, achy all over, restless legs and a few other things was "not sleeping". I kept busy, took hot baths, someone suggested eating a lot of bananas and drinking V8 juice (which is potassium) for restless legs. I think most of all keeping your mind busy and doing things helps a lot.
Tyler, I am so proud of you that you are changing your life and bettering yourself and good luck on that job interview, or was that yesterday, if so let us know how you made out and certainly going back to community college is absolutely fantastic. Your family must be so proud of you.

You can do it and we are thinking about you. It won't be easy but it will be the best thing you have ever done for yourself and you will know that when it is all over with. Don't be too hard on yourself, your are worth it.

Take care and post to any of us if you need us, we are here for you.

Reach, you and secrets send the most wonderful posts to everyone, so inspiring and so true. Keep up the good work.

Tyler, take care and talk to you soon.
