I stopped - wondered why my legs hurts at night so much and had en uneventful pregnancy. Then they gave me lots of percocet to go home with - and then oh no my back hurt again (right...) I was on hydro the entire... (28 replies)
... Hi, First I'd like to say how sorry I am for your family, and then I'd like to say how very fortunate your brother is to have you in his life...really, as an addict, there is so much more of a chance if there is one person in this world that you can tell anything and everything to without fear of reprisal, then chances of success are higher. Of course, he has to do his... (7 replies)
... You're not going crazy, you're going sane. You're doing the healthiest, most rational thing right now by being honest and trying to stop this nasty habit. It won't be fun (regardless of your method of detox), but it is definately within your reach. What you experienced when you ran out of pills is 100% natural. Basically, you're taking oxycodone (percocet and oxycontin) and... (2 replies)
