Hi chronic! Hang in there. Even normal people get grumpy. Try calling someone and see how they are doing. Sometimes thinking and caring about others helps get us out of our own head. Good job on the IOP. Identify with the stories cuz that could be me.
I feel so grumpy. How long will this last? I just want to be left alone, I used to rely on the pills to give me energy and make me happy. I do exercise but at this early point it does nothing for my mood!!!! :(
I thought it could never happen to me but it did!! The program drug screens randomly so you will be kicked out if you do not follow the program rules I am willing to keep an open mind and not judge others stories. I am just as sick as anyone else. I am as sick as a heroin addict or a person snorting oxi. We are all addicts!! But we are all human too and we make mistakes and we need to show compassion for each other. :)
Hello, about one year ago I to did the iop. It was a great program the only bad thing for me was when I heard some of the stories I thought to myself "well I'm not that bad" although I didn't use while I was there 8 am to 5pm. When I got in the car I took one half of a hydrocodone when Before I was takin 3/4 a day, so I made it thu the program but a few months later I was up to 6 a day! Now a year later I hate it that I didn't try harder! I did start making bad choices like some of the stories I heard. Now I'm 27 days clean
and I have a big mess .. My life to try to clean up. So I hope you take it all in and never think that can't happen to me! Don't give up. This can be done!
Congrats on making that call. Your anxious feelings are normal. The fear of the unknown is always a bit scary but you will be fine.
Congrats on 5 days~~~~sara
