hello mary and welcome. how are you feeling? it is going to take time for your mind and body to heal. please be patient with the process. until you stop taking them your will continue to be in withdrawal.
a proper taper would have taken a few months.
stay hydrated. you might not have an appetite but try to at least have yogurt or puddings, soups, crackers some sort of nourishment too.
have you thought about an aftercare to prevent relapse?
therapy, addiction support groups, church?
let us know how you are doing.

Mary, here is a link to a journal started by one of our "tramadol warriors" on MedHelp.  In reading the many, many posts on it you may find additional help from others who have come off tramadol.  Best of luck to you~
