I'm really starting to feel better and I have to believe I've beaten this dependence/addiction thing to the Mighty Methadone! I'm slowly starting to feel normal again, my sleep is slowing returning to normal. I usually get about 4 hours then wake up but I can usually go back to sleep. I just want everyone who may read this to know that there IS HOPE and we can kick this drug for good. I have debilitating chronic back/shoulder pain and bilateral lumbar radiculopothy with bilateral neuropothy. I've found that my mind thought I couldn't function with Methadone. My pain is not less without this drug it is actually the same so why am I taking it I ask myself? I do have Endocet here that I can take for breakthrough pain at nights if I overdo things but it's not really very long acting so I'm going to talk to my PCP about that. The big test for me will be when I go back to work and that is concerning but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it I guess in about 4 weeks time. Thank you all for all the prayers and positive thoughts, it is much appreciated and helps a lot.
