Whew.. no Hydrocodone for 9 days. It hasn't been fun but I am feeling better everyday. I have had some real rough spots but stayed away. I did take a small dose ( 1/2 of .25) of Xanax for five days for the awful anxiety that I had. I have never had panic attacks but wow there were a few times I just panicked. I had the Xanax sitting in my bathroom for over a year and never used it. It was a useful "crutch" and it did help me.
I just wanted to give hope to someone else that may be going through withdrawl's.
I feel so much better not worrying about those pills!!! It is worth it.
I used to lie to myselfand tell myself I wasn't addicted. But after having gone thru this last week and all the lying and stealing.. I KNOW I am an addict (now former addict). It feels good to confess it.
