Just 8 Days??

And I Love my life again. I think better than I did on pills. I feel like I have picked right back up where I left off 6 months ago. What a feeling... Not living every day with the guilt of taking the pills when you know you are taking too many and dont want to... Dont have to worry about running out. Mornings are a little rough but I get through because I know it passes quickly.

I can "think" again, and I feel a joy in my heart when I look at my children as I have never felt. Decesions seem clear and all those "little" things I obssesed over no longer matter, I have patience again. And Ibprofen is helping the pain:) AND best of all I feel humble and greatful. So much that I want to dedicate as much spare time as I possibly can to help people in these kind of situations overcome. I knew this could be done, I just needed a little kick in the butt from medhelp. I hope that there is at least one person that reads this that will find the motivation to get through another day... then another..... then another

Easy NO way.................. I am DEDICATED

Worth every minute of the detox to be here.

Thank you... took alot of hard work, and faith...... But I was just like everyone else, I started taking them 3 years ago for a back injury, usage spun out of control and when I realized it... I was miserable. I just wanted to be DONE with it!! I lost who I was, it took over my life and now I finally got it back. Could not have done it without god and MEDHELP!!!!!!

Day 2 is fantastic and a huge accomplishment as is every day spent clean. Stay strong you may have a few bumpy days but you WILL get through them, and every day is a new day. I say post away, there are so many wonderful people here to get you through. I wish that this website could have some sort of major recognization for what it truely does for people's life. Hugz

So wonderful to read your post...that is exactly how I feel. Mornings for me are the roughest also. AND the IB for the pain is what I am using, and it is working.
Shocking how you can go from the lowest point in your life to living again. But, never forget, never ever forget. It can sneak back up on you before you even realize it!!
Keep fighting!! Keep hanging on...this life is soooo much worth it:)))
