Day 9 no methadone finally slept

This is day 9 with no methadone.  I finally slept 3hrs at a time -never thought it would happen-was only sleeping 15 minutes before.  Sleep is sooooo goood can't wait to get a solid 6hrs- i know my body is ready to sleep but it just won't. I am thankful for 3 hrs. Seems as if the "runs" have stopped but I also haven't eaten much- no appetite. lost 7lbs. Maybe things are getting better. I sure hope so!

Great on the 3 hours sleep~!  Congrats on day 9 too!  If you aren't eating much, making sure you are getting plenty of fluids.  Maybe try a little chicken noodle soup or something, some crackers.  Hopefully things are getting better :)

It is funny that 3hrs sleep seems significant but it was great. That was yesterday-I was back to 15-20 min at a time last night.  I am trying so hard to be patient-I know this will pass. Not taking pills is more important than sleep right now- day 10 today.  TEENA
