Have you considered Suboxone?
I’m sure. I just ask because it has been a life saver for me and you can start at a very low dose to curb your withdrawals and be slowly weaned from them. It’s jyst a more controlled taper and you don’t have to feel quite as miserable. It depends though on how bad your addiction to opiates is/was. You may do better continuing to wean as you are. But just know that is out there as an option (depending on your insurance or access to it). Lots of different feelings/experiences but for me it has been a God send. I had to be able to function for my 3 kids.....
Keep it up! You sound very determined and positive...and if you can sound that way during withdrawal there is hope!!!!!!
Hello & welcone. Congrats on your clean time. You werent on a real high dose. How long did you take them for?
How are you feeling?
How are you handling your heart with drawl symptoms?
You are workng thru withdrawals thats awesome.
Your energy will return. Be patient with the Process.
Make sure you stay hydrated that is extremely important. Try to get some food in you some people can eat and some can’t. If you have no appetite at least try to eat yogurts, smoothies, protein drinks, soups.
Keep on keeping on.
I’m happy to hear that you are going to pursue counseling.
Support during your recovery is essential. Do you have a spouse? do they know about your addiction?
You got this. Keep up the good work.
Sending support, healing & encouragement.
Congrats on 8 days clean!! You are doing great and have a good plan in place. Energy is always the last thing to come back but it does. Get up and move around as much as you can. Your natural endorphins got lazy while you were using and they are working hard at getting back to normal. Stay strong~
