Day 4 and super depressed

I am not going to lie. I spent a good deal of time crying today. I felt like I was "breaking up" with the pills. Like when you break up with your boyfriend and you are so depressed you do not know what to do with yourself. That is how I feel. BF took me shopping and did his very best to help. It did help a little. My mind is just messing with me. I wish I could have a pink cloud. You would think that I would be all excited that I have quit and WD are over. I have no more physical symptoms at all. But now I am depressed cause the pills are gone and I will never have them again. I am glad I flushed them cause with the state of mind I was in today, I might have taken one thinking oh well, I can control it. I want to feel happy again. And I want to sleep. What I really want to know from all of you is when I can expect my RLS to chill out and let me get some rest. I am so tired of kicking around. It is in my arms, too. I got the Hylands restless legs. I will try it tonight. When did you all stop having restless legs and start to sleep a little.

Believe me dear I know it is hard but stay with your plan and it WILL get better, I am on my day 9 and on day 5, I seen a big turn  around towards feeling better, you are at the bottom of the valley now you will start getting better. Stay with it, take a lot of vits and supplements that help me greatly.

Good work on day4..Another poster compared quitting opiates to breaking up with someone.He stated that he approached it in a similar manner.After mourning a couple of days he decided to stop thinking about it and got on with his life.
You are doing a good job.

i am on day 4 also, i was taking 20 norco a day. my physical symptoms are going away but i am really emotional, depressed and anxious. i went to the DR. and i told him what was going on and he game xaniax it has really helped. it can be addictive also the DR gave me just 1 weeks worth. suck up your pride and go see the DR and then see a phyclogist. i dont know if the depression started prior to the pills or before? but it may be worth checking for both of us?

look into some supplements for mood as long as you are not on any antidepressants ...5hpt and ltyrosine worked great for me along with exercise I can not stress what a difference exercise made with the the depression..Try to work on changing your thought process these pills are not your friend this should be the best break up you have ever had ...

Just finishing up day 8, I can barely believe it.  I havent been exactly depressed but I have noticed a complete lack of interest in most things.  Almost a deadening of emotions, and the absense of energy.

But...I feel so much better tonight.  I started the day feeling the same but I am ending it feeling optomistic.  I am not 'all better' and I know I have a long road ahead.  But all of us need to remember "We are on the road to recovery" and thats a huge step from the ditch we were existing in before.  For myself, I know I will need to be mindful of every step I take in life so that I dont slowly wander into the ditch again.

So lets link virtual arms and Follow the yellow brick road!!!!
