About Me: Female, Philly, PA, member since Dec 2007
I am the mother of a two year old who I adore. I am currently taking hydrocodone and ultram, tired of feeling like a slave to the stuff. I had one successful c/t attempt which lasted about a year. I'm considering a taper since w/d is such HELL.This forum has been really
[More] good for me.
"Wow. Your response was just what I needed to read this am. You are so darn right, about everything. It rules me!!! The counting, the need for early refills, I have called them my batteries... And yes there is a lot of romanticism when it..."
"Well it's early on day 2, slept about 3hrs but who's counting... Felt pretty darn good yesterday. Made myself stay outside pulling weeds ect. I think my need is truly a want in regards to quitting opiates. I had a pretty bad a** attitude..."
At one point,I was where you are right now. It is worth it, and you know that. You have a child, and that is great motivation. You probably have 1 or 2 more baaaaad days, and then it'll start looking up. You said you are an RN.That is a big accomplishment. You have a lot to live for, and pills will slowly kill you. If not physically, then mentally. I wish you well. Truly.
