Hi there, very touched by your story. I'm about to start WD from Tramadol and am so scared. I have 3 kids and my husband is gone a lot for work. I worry how I'm going to take care of my family. I want to quit but even missing one dose makes me want to jump off a cliff. Im the most worried about loss of energy, I already exercise regularly and haven't felt better. But again, it's all a facade because things are great as long as I take my little white pill every 3 hours. If that goes the bottom falls out. I've read that mega doses of vitamin C can help withrawal symptoms so am trying that. Anyway thank you for the post and your moving testimony, You broke through my numb emotions if that means anything :)
I mean't internal cramping.
I need to ask you. Does nausea and stomach pain linger this long. I'm 55 with Gastritis and it's scaring me. I don't read much about nausea lingering this long. I'm 16 days I out but I don't feel good like the others say at this point. I can't seem to gain weight after tapering I lost a significant amount and now I can't eat much from nausea and international cramping. Did some people you know experience this for several weeks out. Also electrical shocks throughout body? Don't read about that either. I'm so sleep deprived. My Klonopin does not help. Did you have that problem too after weeks. Please address all Qs I'm so desperate and the fearful uneasiness is scaring me. Thank you FGM
Good to know we are being watched over! One's suffering can really be a lifeline for others.
It is now April 2015. You and all the others back in your time have been my lifeline. This journal must live on. Oh how I came across it as a breath of fresh air. I feel like I've gone back in time and are with the original "Warriors" fighting with you. I'm a tapered @100mgs and feeling so strong because you all taught me to turn depression and anxiety into good I'm fightin' anger! This journal continues to help so many fighters get to the other side. May God richly bless you and thank you so much. PS I'm tapering Klonapin at the same time too! He he! I have also had my "I'm so done" revelation like you. Blessings to you. Hope you read this someday. Ruthy

Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for the "friends" invitation. I'm not familiar with how to use this forum, so not sure what to do with a "friend", but I sure could use one right now! Thanks!
for sleep, buy some Melatonin. as we age( and abuse), our seratonin lessens. You can buy it over the counter at the store. You'll thank me in the morning.

It is great that you continue to support those of us in the early going. Your kind words, experience and motivation makes a huge difference. To see what waits for us - you have no idea what that means to me.
I look forward to reading your posts and inspiration.
Just a quick note to say hi! We will be cutting through KY on our way out and I'll say a little prayer for you and our newfound lives. Keep the faith, friend. Your posts are invaluable.
Thank you for your posting. It does help when someone identifies and have been thru similar. I guess the legs & lower back are all that you say. Let's give it another week! Very grateful for the information. Sincerely Tramm

Thank you for everything! Your journals have been an inspiration for me to stay the course. I'm 10 days behind and hope to forever stay exactly 10 days behind you on our quest to remain free of this poison.
