Im in hell

my pain is so high, I just want to sleep for the rest of this hell and be done with it.  I was on the freaking vics for headache so I feel like if I had just one I would feel better.

thats my problem I can't take just one. I know this. but my God this is hard, really truly hard. harder than I thought as far as my body is demanding its relief.  I mean, for the love of God, I guess my body figured if it couldn't get me while going through the tough part of the w.d it would go against me and demand it for the reason I started taking it....

god I hurt. this is not good.....

Day 3 is hard, but it's not impossible.  You can do this. Try taking some Tylenolpm or Advilpm. Make sure your drinking plenty of fluids.  The only problem with the ER is that they will probably give you some type of narcotics (been there done that) then these past three days will be all for nothing.  Just hang in there, day 4 will be better!!!

I know how you feel and I know its hell! I detoxed off 10mg Norcos...which is same as vicodin. I was taking 4 to 7 a day and I took 2 weeks for me to feel better. After your 7/8 day you will feel relief. The first time I detoxed I had severe back pain and the 2nd time I had severe anxiety and felt like I had the flu bad and mirgraines. I went to the ER the last time and there is nothing they can do but treat you like ****! All they did was gave me something for nausea and a clonodine and did a cat scan. I know its hard and you feel like your in hell but you just have to tell yourself that this will go away. The only good thing about suffering bad is that you will not want to do it again. Ive had it and will never do it again! I had already detoxed off the worst/strongest drug ever, ewhich is fentanyl!! If you need any advice just PM me and I will help you!!! I will pray for ya!!

I get killer headaches too.  Some of my worst migraines were after a day of over indulging on my pain meds.  Rebound headaches I think.  Advil liquigels work and a cold compress on my head too.  I also practice active dissociation, a way of taking my mind elsewhere and finding some peace.  This is not to be confused with the kind of dissociation we addicts practice to get away with our addictions of course.  It can also be called mindfulness and I am sure you will find techniques on the net.

God bless and best of luck

Going to the ER will be a huge waste of time.  They wont do anything for you except treat you like a junkie and send you home.

Sorry.  But YOURE DOING IT!!!!!  Look how far youve come!!!

I know, and I swear to God if I went in the ER and they treatem me like **** because of a place that some of them have helped put me in I will freaking loose it.

Its awful to not have a safe place to get safe meds so you can just not be in pain.

but I feel good right now, hopefully sleep will soon follow Oh God sleep must happn tonight... I have to play happy mommy tomorrow for soccer

I'm so glad to read you're doing better! I have extreeeeemely bad migraines too and I know how debilitating it can be... Hang in there, you're fighting the beast girl and the beast doesn't like it....
We are all very impatient, after years of using we're expecting to function normally right after quitting. Your brain needs some adjustments to be able to function normally w/o pills and it's gonna play trix on you. Fight! you really can do this.
All my support. sophie.
