Day 4 - I feel pretty good, how are you?

This must be my lucky day, I get to start a question!

Good morning, my fellow withdrawers.  (Anybody got a better name than "withdrawers"?)  How's everyone?

My addiction has been to hydro and at one time oxy and one time perocet.  This time it was just hydro and not too high a dose (40mgs/day) and not too long.  But this has been my hardest withdrawal.
I always relapse because of severe nerve and/or joint pain.  But after the first few days of pain relief I'm off and running.  And running...

There's more stuff about me in today's other thread.

I was too out of it too go get the "recipe" on my first or second days but I started some of it yesterday and I think it helped.  Are you doing it?  Hot showers helped, too.  Today I feel almost human.

Could you call in sick tonight?  After all, you ARE sick.

Don't you just deplore the idea of starting over?  Yesterday morning I felt bad enough to relapse but it's already so much better.
