thank you, thank you all so much......i just went and cleaned out the tub......i have a collie lab mix dog in the house and well needless to say this house has been neglected a lot lately.  I just bought it to at the end of last summer.  anyways getting in tub....i will be back, guarantee that.  If it wasnt for being on here today I wouldve went straight to the dr.  I have been praying so much lately and God sent me to this sight and to all you wonderful people for a reason......hope everyone is ready to hold on for the ride with me....lol....going to tub now, think its filled up.....be back soon and again....thank you so much

First off take some good deep breathes in through ur nose and out the mouth. And remember why you WANT to do this! You can do this! You have 2 beautiful children that need and want their mommy to be happy and free of this!! Also remember they are very young and can sense your emotions. So try your best to relax and take a few minutes to enjoy your precious babies, they love you! Also the house can wait! Anybody that has ever had a baby knows that sometimes things don't get done right away....and there is nothing wrong with that.

Also this is day 2 and well atleast for me it has always been the worse. So on that note look at it this way day 2 is half way over!!!! YAY!!!!! Also keep the fluids going it will help you detox faster. I have been averaging atleast a gallon of water a day! And today I am on Day 4 and I have not had any withdrawals. I know all of our bodies are different and some of us take longer than other to get it out of our system but just hang in there! Also another thing that helped me way hot bath with bath salt and lavender. Make it as hot as you can handle and try to relax. I enjoy candles and music with my baths. Just try to your best to stay calm......trust me i know its hard ecspecially when you have little ones. I have 5 children 11,8,6,5 and 2! And my husband works 3rd shift. So yeah he is home during the day but I have to try my best to keep them quiet so he can sleep! It aint easy but it will get better! Just don't give up!
Also another thing that helped me was I asked God for his help. I don't know your belief but if you believe in Him than ask for his help and if you truly want His help, He will carry you through this!
I hope myself or somebody is able to help you through this!

I hope I'm not too late - hang in there sweetie. you really are halfway through the bad stuff...you can do this. I know how overwhelming it is...my dog is a whiner, my kids are 2 1/2 years and 9 months, and I do it all alone all day and night (my husband is only home for a few hours each night) and this week was tough..REALLY tough for me.

but here I am...5 1/2 days done and feeling better with every moment.

Please hang in there...you will be SO glad you did once you get through the other side...go take a hot bath, walk, call a friend, just find something else to focus on.
