i will be five years sober, on december 9th, from vicodin and percocet.
ever since i have been off the pills, i have formed VAST fears of medications of any kind. on top of that, i was also been diagnosed with severe panic disorder [bad panic attacks] and a spectrum of OCD with my irrational thoughts, as they call it.
since i've been diagnosed with panic disorder, i have not been back to the doctor. again, this was three years ago. i am wondering if anyone else has experienced this....where they get off of pills [and have nO desire to ever go back to them] and started having panic attacks and such. since i got off of the pain pills, i have yet to even take anything OTC for pain, headaches, back aches.....you name it. i am afraid of even vitamins, for fear that i will have an adverse reaction to those, too.
your words would help, if you have any experience with this at all. thanks in advance.
