Hi,

My goodness, a broken back? That has got to be very painful. Are you in a cast? What does the doctor say? Talk to him/her about the taper ( I assume it is a different doctor than your first one) and maybe get someone to help you with this, i.e. hold the pills and dose them to you so you are not tempted to abuse them.

Is your husband addicted too? Would he help you with the taper?

Have you given any thought to talking to someone about all the emotional pain you are going thru also?

How is your son doing?

I don't have a doctor to see i have no medical.  No my husband hates pills and wonts me off bad. I have been seeing a Thairpist but so far no luck helping me.
My son just got out of Icu he has a hole in his trachea and the doctor does not know why .

  There must be some type of assistance you could receive.  Did a doctor tell you your back is broken?  Pardon my confusion.  I am glad to hear your son is out of ICU.

Iam trying to get assistances but it is so short in my town.

It seems the people that really need the help dont get it.  This must happen all over.

Detoxing will make the pain feel worse for awhile also.  Does soaking in a hot bath help?  Are you taking any vitamins?

Oh My, That is awful. Since your husband doesn't take the pills, will he help you with a taper? It is hard with the assistance and it does take time. Please be patient with it and don't give up. You need help and you will find it. so keep trying.

Have you contacted any treatment centers to see if you are eligible?

your husband doesnt seem to be very understanding, so you must help yourself, try and be strong and taper off these meds, drink plenty of fluids and keep posting, your not alone .god bless.

If all of what you say is true your husband doesn't seem to be understanding at all.  If your back is broken you are OBVIOUSLY in a lot of pain!!!  I'm glad that you want to cut those 2 pills out of your life though.  Is that all you take though?  2 Vicodin a day?!  Are you still taking percs, morphine and oxys too?  I'm a little confused on that part.  Sudie is right, you are NOT alone.  We can help support you when you need it.  This forum is amazing!  How long until you get to the treatment center?  You CAN and WILL do this!!!  Do it for yourself and do it for your son!!!  I'm sorry to hear that he was in ICU, but glad that he is out now.  I hope they find out everything with him soon and hope he is well.  Keep posting and keep your head up :)

U r obviously I dear pain. U need to consider what u r going to do to manage your pain. You need to make sure you want and are ready and prepared to stop taking them for you and not because your husband gets mad. If you have chronic severe pain, u need to try to see a dr. The dose u r down to is great. If u can continue to deduct slowly from there then maybe you won't be as sick. Try to think of how u will manage your pain. Not everyone who is addicted is just taking for the ' high' there are true pain patients. I also have back issues but not as sever as yours I believe. I have 3 herniated discs. I really wish u lots of luck. Keep writing. ;-)

If you  think you backs broken, go to the er they cant turn you away. If your back is reall broken you could slip and fall a cut your spinal cord and be paralized for life. at least get an x-ray to find out what the problem is like I said the er cant turn you away.good luck
