I am so sorry to hear that you had a tough day. However I so get it. I am on day 21 and decided to take my boys to a museum. Thank goodness my husband was with us. Every 10 min. or so I got so tiered that I just had to sit down. Once I was sitting, I would start crying because I just couldn't believe how short my stamina was. What a sight I must have been walk 10. cry 10, then repeat. LOL.

I'm with you. Day 22 here. I have good times and bad times every day. And I never know when. When I'm alone I think if only I was around people I would feel a little better. So I go somewhere to be around people and think, I can't be around these people, I need to be alone. So confusing! I really think alot of my yuckiness is from lack of sleep. Hoping when my daughter gets home Thursday and I can sleep in my own bed it will get a little better. We just need to hang in there, It will get better, I just know it will.

The best advice I have gotten was from Gnarly. "You just gotta be ok with not being ok for awhile".

We got this ladies, we've come too far to start over.

"You just gotta be ok with not being ok for awhile". Words to live by. I'll try to remember that when in my next pity party.

My days been like yours.. started out it was good but I'm struggling now.. bad.. I'm so tired.. I'm hiding In the bathroom.. our friend I am taking care of from his stroke is convinced the crop duster plane is flying to close and will hit the house and he is going to call homeland security! Ugh.. thank goodness he has forgotten his numbers.. so he can't use the phone. The crop duster is a good mile or more away from here.. so, im hiding, in the bathroom, crying :/ i can't leave till i get him settled down.. whew! Wish me luck! Hopefully tomorrow will be better for us all! Almost 6 days down for me!

Got him settled down.crop duster quit for the day.. thank goodness... came home to hubby in a wheel chair shooting giggling kids with a nerf gun and a clean house :) I totally needed that! He cooked pizza.. they delivered! :) my teen really did a good job on the house. No begging! My pity party delayed my surprise! I'll have to keep future pity parties shorter :) I had sat in my truck pouting for a good while feeling sorry for myself ... but I needed a good cry.. felt better after wards.. come on day 7!

You're doing awesome love!! I'm at 4 months off 11 year oxy use and I even still hsvd bad days. I'm finally sleeping 5-6 hours a night now though. So I I know that helps. The meetings help a lot as well. I don't speak much,but helps just being there. I love walking and just listening to my iPod and tuning out the world on a bad day. :))

What are you doing for the pain? I also know how that feels. I was taking my pills for pain. Well and I was addicted. But I do have pain. It's not nearly as bad now as was when I was on the pills though. Funny how that works eh?!

You're on your way.  No looking back now.  Nothing to see back there.  Our only path is forward.

I have a friend going through chemo right now.  Every couple weeks he gets another dose.  He gets sick as hell, no energy.  I don't know how he does it.  He'd take 3 months of WDs in a heartbeat.  I sure hope he's here next year.

I know how it feels at 2 weeks and its hell but your are right at the edge of the light.  Life without looking into a pill bottle.  Soon you will realize that you're over that hump, that you're getting better each day.  Its the most wonderful thing.  

I'm 59 and I've had the mindset of an addict all my life.  If I can be free then all of us can be free  :-))
