About Me: Female, 43, City of Angels, CA, member since Jun 2008
I had a severe car accident seven years ago. My lower back was injured. L4 and L5 discs and nerve damage in my right leg. At this point I am going thru withdrawal from Tramadol which my Doc assured me was not dangerous.(IDIOT!) I'm on a few other drugs, but never ever h
[More]ad this withdrawal experience. I was taking 6 pill max for about 6 months. Before that I was on for 4 years 2-3 pills a day. I am in so much pain that I feel like I am dying. It's ridiculous because I have no insurance, hate my Doctors now and have a very demanding job! ACK! Help! Am using The Thomas Method. If I had a full week off I might be able to feel less anxiety. No such luck!
Emily I just want to say that I dig you so much! every time I read something you posted in the j, it is so moving and tremendously inspiring in every way. Your warmth and empathy shine through every word. Though I am not really withdrawing rignt now, your j carries meaning and depth for me. Thank you.
I was just thinking about you today, how are you? I hope things are good and you are busy with life. Tomorrow is 4 months for me, still struggling a little but without the forum I don't know if I could have done it. Knowing we are not alone is key to recovery, just wanted to say thank you.
Hi Emily I just started reading your journals and I am captivated by them. Amazing! I am trying to find a way to follow the j's and I just sent you a friend invite. I was never on Trams but I'm trying to get clean from opiates, it's been a couple of years for me but I'm still determined to do it. Thanks for your j's.
