Day #3 off methadone

Oh my goodness day 3 and NO METHADONE. I am so determined i am going to be ok~! and never have to touch a drug again in my life~! i hated the first two days off methadone but i found something that has been a blessing to help with the aches and pains..(advil liquid gels) I have taken these before for my teeth pain and they have always worked for that so i thought..last night i was laying on the bed feeling like crap, (i couldnt get out of bed for nothing) and i even cried bc i thought this feeling was going to last forever. so i asked my hubby for money to go to the store and grab a box of advil. not even an hour later after i tokk 2 of them i was up and in the shower and watching movies in bed, i felt so normal and relaxed. I cant wait im almost there.. i will get though this, I WILL~!!
