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 :)
Sounds like they are coming to an end of your withdrawals. They are hard on your body... and sleep you need... good luck and keep up the awesome work, getting through it will be the most rewarding thing ever! Hang in there. Sleep well.... soon... I hope...

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
