About Me: Female, 36, Tacoma, WA, member since Jun 2013
I am a mom of 4 beautiful children and married to the most wonderful man ever! About 4, honestly maybe 5 years ago, I got addicted to pain killers. Percs, Vics, anything, I could get my hands on. I doctor shopped and have an enormous amount of bills and decided when my
[More] best friend was about to get married to leave the pills behind. The problem was I couldn't handle the WD, so i found a pain management clinic and was prescribed Suboxone. I was told that it was a miracle drug and it was until I was no longer able to see my doctor because of a missed appt. I figured there was no time like the present to start tapering down and I did from 8mg. to 1mg. over a month and half. I figured the jump from 1 mg. would be simple compared to a jump from a higher dose, I was wrong. I feel so cheated by my doctor because he never told me about the WD that I would suffer. I was never told that the WD would be worse than WDing from the pills. THIS MEDICINE CALLED SUBOXONE IS THE DEVIL! I want my happiness and zest for life back, I want to look at my babies without crying because of what I have put them through, I want to look at my husband and desire him, but I have no sex drive what so ever : / I want to be one of those "normal"people" that I see everyday out and about doing their own thing. I don't even know what "normal" is anymore : ( I feel trapped in my house, stuck to the couch because these WDs are HORRID!
