Ok really crashing.  I guess that is expected.  Wow 360 from earlier.  back to the 15 minute thing.  But still here.  I took my vitamins and some Ltyerosine.  Hopefully that will help.  It is my hubby birthday and I am trying so hard to be something for him.  Not going to make cheerful, but present would be nice.  Thanks for the encouraging words above.  I am going to make it.  I had to take my mom in for her refill of her meds today.  She has a spinal fracture.  Now that was some strength.  She lives here and I am honestly not tempted by her meds.  She needs them too much.  I don't want to do to my kids what she ( unintentionally ) does to me.  Ok going to take a hot bath now.  Thanks for listening in a shaky moment.

While I was in rehab, one of the best in the world.....30k, I found that 50% of people were in there because of meth, 30% from opiates, and the others from crack/coccaine. We all had the same wd symptoms. As far as I know, most people went in high or looking for life. Here is how we handled wd's and it wasn't near as bad as I see in all of these forums. Of course we were also under Dr. care and evaluated.

The first step was stepping into a sauna (steam or dry) for 2-5 hours everyday for 4 days. The quicker you wanted the stuff out of your system, the longer you stayed in. When this poors out of your fat/muscle (where opiates are mostly stored) you start feeling nausea the first time. I would step out for a while and get back in for relief but they made sure you were 'locked' in there for at least 2 hours. While most people complain of aching pain through wd period, this eliminates it. You will experience diarrhea the first couple days but what a great feeling when all the poison falls out.

Then a vitamin diet to get your nutrients and energy back.

Then the worst comes....the mind games....that special high.  This was the worst part of the 30 day rehab. 3 weeks of learning how to deal with pain and saying no while the drugs you take sit on a table right next to you. I wouldn't recommend this since I was baby sat and taking them drugs would of costed me HUGE.

I wanted of the opiates so bad that after wd, I would almost puke...even today to look at another pain pill.

Do you have a gym, fitness center, etc., near you? I would recomend this for a quick recovery.
