Day 150

Jan 16, 2011 - 1 comments

I am still off trams. But I still feel the WD at times- esp when I am stressed.  I still want to take a pill at times.  My husband is on them STILL, but I have refrained from doing it.  I know how bad they are and how they made me into a different person.  Being on them for sooooo long- over 10 yrs, I believe makes it hard for my body to adjust to the new chemistry.  I pray each time I get that urge to take one.  Five months off is a lot of work to loose and for what??????  A short term antidepressant effect that will turn into a huge addiction again.  I will remain steadfast, but I sure wish my husband would stop.  It woudl help to not have access, then I would stop thinking about the trams when I have a bad day or feel sad or need energy.  That was a way of life for me for a long time.  May God strengthen my resolve to be true to who I am and who He wants me to be.

Day 98- I have my life back!!

Nov 25, 2010 - 0 comments

Life back!



I am on day 98 of freedom from tramadol.  I finally feel better.  I am my old self again- about at 95% or more.  My energy is back and the depression is gone.  I am sleeping good most nights now. My daughter who does not know about my addiction told me, "mom, you seem so much happier lately.  You are a nicer person! and you are not so groughy any more"  Wow!  I know this change is due to being off the trams.  I wont lie- there have been moments that I have been close to taking one (my husband is still on them), but I have somehow stopped myself and now I feel I am over the hump.  Her saying that to me was a blessing.  I know I was not being the person who God made me to be.  It bothered me every single day while I was taking them.  Now the addiction is not in the way of my faith, my relationships or anything else.  I am so thankful to God for giving me strength to be free.  Now He can use me in new and better ways to serve others and especially my family and friends.

Day 67- doing good

Oct 25, 2010 - 1 comments

I am doing mostly good now.  Have occasional PAWS symptoms, but they only last a few hours and are gone.  I have had some wonderful days where I am really back to normal and I know this will continue to get better every day.  I dont think about trams all the time anymore, which is very good.  I have rekindled interest in some old hobbies that I have not really felt like doing for a long time.  Interesting how now I feel more creative and think more deeply about things again.  the trams really screwed up my life for 10 yrs!!  67 days free.  I am so very thankful.
