How great to see a tracker for you - YAY 1 day! That's so great!
And tramadol was my DOC for a really long time (6/7 years) and it took about a week for me to get past the physical stuff (maybe 10 days) which isn't the average - you're right about the 4 days being an average.
Hang in there - life is SO much better without trams. You'll see! Very very proud of you! :)
Thanks for the pep talk. I can't seem to find the tramadol recovery room. Can you lead the way?
I have been taking them for two years, but only one year heavy. I know that the time is now, and I will deal with the longer term problems with my doctor if the come up. I've gone to several NA meetings, and I meant to go last night and pick up a white key tag, but I got wrapped up in worrying how I would make the night and forgot. I bought a bed for the guest room so I wouldn't keep my partner up with all the tossing and turning.
I went driving yesterday a couple of times and that helped. It is too cold (@20) here to walk in the park.
You're very welcome!
To get to the recovery room - on the right side of the page you'll see "recent activity" - right now there's a recent post from stephC28 - and under her name you'll see "tramadol & ultram recovery room" - just click on that and it will bring you to the most recent page for this thread.
And I actually read the entire thread from the beginning (dates back to around 2008) - emily began this thread and it was HUGE in my recovery to hear about her journey and what she did to get through. I'm confident it will help you too - plus the bonus - it gave me something to read and distract myself with when I wasn't sleeping in the beginning.
Good luck to you - you CAN do this! Keep the faith and stay strong. :)
Also meant to mention - once on the thread, it's a good idea to save it to your favorites so it's easy to find your way back. :)
