The health pages r full of info and i hope peeps read thru there..it cant hurt..print it and read it in ur bed at night..just be decuated on ur decisions u make for ur recovery
I do feel learning about what u may expect druing detox is helpful so it is not a shock and u r prepared
For me the fatigue and depressio hit me a week or 2 after wds..never had insomnia nor rls..exercised daily to me myself move as i was slipping into a deep dark whole and i didnt want to relapse.
Anyway...what was ur most severe wd symptom? or often it can be more than one...for me it was deprsion and fatigue..not sure how this poll will work with some multiple choice questions but u can explain it in ur post if u can only click one choiice
Consious seizures. You get this feeling in your stomach thats goes from the tip of your head to your toes, it comes in waves about every minute or two to maybe five mins if lucky and it causes my arms and legs to spasm horrible like really violent flinches. Bad anxiety the whole time. You feel like your going to loose your mind and your in a different world. After 24 hrs itll pass for the most part but i will be so incredible exhausted from the spasms and sweating and freezing and not eating and diarreha and vomiting. Feels like u got hit by a truck. But after that horrible day you really have moments of clarity and raw emotion which is nice cuz for me since ive been using for almost 8 yrs now i dont feel real emotion. Quiting pills i think is one of the hardest things to do and im once again trying to get clean after having 4 months of being sober.For those of you that have only been using for months or a couple years quit now. It only gets so much worse, never better. You will never get the high when u first started and its not worth losing ur life to a damn pill.Good luck i hope all you of trying can make it out.
interesting poll worried.....for me it was insomnia/fatigue.....i m sure i was fatigued due to hardly any sleep. it took me like 4 hours to clean something that normally takes an hour tops. i kept having to sit down....felt like i just couldn t stand...insomnia and fatigue also were the last wd to get over other than depression....maria
