10 days and getting better

had a pretty good day.  I think most of the physical stuff is over, now I'm still dealing with a bit of the mental junk.  I really don't want anymore ultram or hydrocodone but I've noticed I'm a little more emotional than usual, but I'm sure that'll pass too.  Again thank you all for your support.

Congrats on your clean time!!! The emotional roller coaster is hard but you can do it, just take it easy on yourself, it's just your brain trying to readjust.
Keep on rocking in a free world.

Congrats!! Im on day 8!! Im up early and watched the sun rise. Legs still feel a little painful but overall MUCH BETTER.
What just gave me a little boost was finding this list of Hydro side effects. DO WE WANT THIS HELL ANYMORE? Goodness, this is a rough list and I felt almost every one of these symptoms, and I am SO GLAD they are coming to an end:

Hydrocodone side effects include but are not limited to:

addiction
allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives)
anxiety
blood in stool or vomit
bruising
cold, clammy skin
constipation
decreased appetite
decreased mental and physical performance
decreased sex drive
difficulty breathing
difficulty urinating
dizziness
drowsiness
dry throat
diarrhea
difficulty swallowing or breathing
dry mouth
emotional dependence
exaggerated feeling of depression
extreme calm (sedation)
exaggerated sense of well-being or fear
gas
headache
hoarseness
indigestion
itching
lightheadedness
mental clouding
mood changes
nausea
muscle twitches
rash
restlessness
ringing in the ears
sedation
seizures
severe weakness or dizziness
shortness of breath
slow, weak breathing
sluggishness
tightness in chest
stomach cramps
stomach pain
sweating
swelling of hands, face, lips, eyes, throat, tongue, or ankles
tiredness
unconsciousness
unusual fatigue
vomiting
yellowing of the skin or eyes


BLECH!!! The emotional rollercoaster is worth it to not feel this anymore!
