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!
Thank you so much for this. It's clear that it saved so many lives. Hoping for one more.
When do you think you would start room #63? Do you have some number of posts or time targets? For those of us new or anyone with an iPad who has to go to the more recent posts or post ourselves, it takes quite a bit of work to scroll all the way down to the end now.
No matter what though I so appreciate what you have done here for so many people you never met! Restores my faith in humanity knowing people like you are still here.

Emily. Thanks for being the first brave soldier in the battle so you could help fellow wounded soldiers after you. Good stuff to glean from. Docs are still in denial and it's 2015. But at least the devildol is recognised as a narcotic. I'm waiting to join the class action suit if it ever gets here. Blessings, Ruthy
Emily thank you so much for all your journals. I am currently coming off of 13 years of solid tramadol use. I basically cannot even function after 6 weeks off tramadol. I am currently on neurontin which scares me because I am worried about the withdrawal from that. I also am completely and utterly depressed and anxious. Any advise for me at this stage would be so helpful as no one seems to know what to do with me in terms of my doctors.
