Well - you should be on day 4 now!  Great Job - day 4 was a big turning point for me, so I am sure you will see that soon - this weekend or Monday?  Finally get some energy back - not all at once, but it does come.  Great idea to bake a pie - even though you did not want to - just keep pushing through - its making you a stronger person!  I am on day 19 now, doing great, but had a bad "craving day" yesterday... my step mother took a percocet right in front of me and i knew she had more in her purse!  UGH!!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Mary - Yeah the first few days are tough - thinking all the time, wanting a pill, not having a pill the feeling like you will never get through the day without just 1 pill!  I remember - it was only 2 weeks ago for me - but to be honest i have not thought about taking a pill in at least 24 hours now...so I proise it will be easier.  I also had alot of anxiety on day 2 - I cried...it was just a day though - there will be another one tomorrow and hopefully it will be better.  Hopefully your physical WD's aren't too bad b/c of the taper....  Good luck on day 2!

I did not go to the Health store-  but it seems there are alot of good supplements you can take.  I just tried to flush my body w/ water and gaterade, and took a multivitamin that sand "ENERGY" on the front (from the regular food store) 2x a day for the first few days.  In a way I hope you take your last one at work today b/c then tomorrow will be day 1 for you...and even though it *****, you will be that much closer to having it all out of your body soon and start feeling better soon!  Good luck...

Hi mary - Don't feel bad about the taper, you do what you need to do and you were taking much more than me, - I was only taking 1-3 a day, so if I was you i would taper as well....and its not easy.  But if you can "survive" the day - even if it sucked, you will know you can survive the day with only 1 a day, then none.  You will do this if you really want to and soon enough you will be on day 4 with no pills - just keep reminding yourself why you want to do this.  Hope you have a good day - Jackie

Hi Mary -
I am glad you wrote me.  It really helps to have someone to vent your feeling to, especially someone who understands.  I was only taking anywhere from 1-4 a day, so really did not need to tapper.  I took 2 on Sunday and that was my last day.... I did turn a corner last night and have energy to do chores and play with my son and it was great.  Day 4 and going strong, little tired and bored, but I know i can do this.  Stay strong and keep in touch!
