I have never told my story and lived off drugs.com to keep me confident while fighting the opiate physical addiction. I was on opiates ,morphine, methadone,oxycotin, oxycodone, percocet extra strength for over 4yrs. My life was being destroyed i hated my doctors for destroying my wrist and my unla nerve. 6 nerve block( spinal injections) procedures and i was supposed to be opiate free. the opiates made 16 hrs a day of traction bare able but then ... The physical fight off the opiates was worse then the physical pain from my wrist. Getting of the opiates alone was hell and impossible. My family and friends saw me as weak and lazy. If i took the drugs i was an addict and if i lay in bed i was being lazy and weak. I tried for months to stop the oxy's but the physical body aches, head aches, twitching, tremors, stomach aches, no desire for food no sleep, was soooooo over whelming. I begged the doctors to get me off. They where confident in my strong mind and focus that they up my perscription and said it wasn't time yet. and to slow down. ALL I WANTED WAS MY LIFE BACK pain or no pain. So i went to shake it out and fight the withdrawls full force. BUT it was to strong to powerful no matter how strong my faith, my mind set my determination i couldn't beat it. the opiates where in my body chemistry and i was scared. my blood pressure and heart rate where becoming to high the body ache and sweating was unstopable. i couldn't even look people in the eyes when i talked cause my mouth and eyes would start twitching. i became embarrassed and ashamed of where my life was reguardless of the pain. i found www.opiates.com and began to get educated and started to understand how i needed medical help and needed a doctor to listen. I went with the opiates.com method and have now been opiate FREE for over 3wks. My pain in my wrist and left arm is a 1000% better. Do i still have chronic pain YES. BUt it is so bare able compared to life with opiates. NOW i am learning how to do life with Chronic pain and no opiates and let me just say it is 1000% better and i don't understand why Opiates are even allowed. I do take Neurontin and have taken it for over a year and that is helping. BUT my question is does opiates cause the brain to think its in more pain? opiates.com helped save my life and life with chronic pain now seems so easy compared to withdrawls.
