    I am 50 years old, when I was a kid (15 - 23 ) I was little miss partier. but after I had kids I turned into little miss Bible thumper...then about 5 years ago I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia and the Doctor started me on opiates (BAD IDEA )
    the first year I was one happy camper I could work day and night..
    but by the second year I was finding out I was in trouble...by that time I was chewing up my oxycontin and taking 10mg vics to top it off..
    the third year I was spending at least a 100 dollars a day just to stay out of w/d ... so I set out to quit...I stopped the oxycontin and tried to take enough vic's or perc's to = the amount of oxycontin I was taking I was so sick !!!
    but i finally got stable and did a taper off of them..I found this forum when I was at 2 five mg vic's a day and then quit.. It was a nightmare.. and I never want to have to do that again..
    I don't know if I would have made it if it was not for this forum...I was so lost and alone..but I got a lot of support from here...

    I'm sorry about the replies, I'm sure more people will jump in, sometimes the thread drops to the bottom and know one see it...

    I'm happy you stopped at 23 and now you will never have to do this again...
    and I'm sorry about your sister is she OK now.
    I had a brother that died of hep C from drugs so you would think I would have known better to !!!
    But we live and learn...
    talk to you soon, Melinda

    Hey soul. I did'nt see your thread til just now. I would have replied too. I hope you are still around or will come back. I am almost 2 mos. off 300 mg/oxy per day
    My habit got out of control in the last few years, had a major surgery and then I was really off to the races!! Thank God I found my way back here to this forum cause it helped a lot.

    Let us know how you are doing. It will only get better from here and there are so many great people here, like Mlinda who has already replied. She was a lifesaver for me too!

    Talking Hello there....I have so many "helpers" for your situation....

    Hello, HOWDY, GREETINGS, SO PROUD OF YOU AND ???? HUM......OH, KUDOS AND MORE kudos to you for being wise beyond your years, and experiences of a loved one - your sister's liking for the lovely, yet not-so-lovely Poppy plant/flower that subtlety creeps upon a person in the beautiful disguise of sweet relief of physical pain.....
    And then.....BAAAMM!!!! Suddenly you're in the grips of OPIOID Madness-
    Straight up, heads up, truth to the core of how it happens.....
    I once again commend your search for a better way to live.....
    Raise the roof to you!!! THE STRONG ONE!!!
    I want to elaborate in depth, yet I must take my son to school before I start.
    I hope you see my first, funny huh? My very first thread that I read is the one thing in my life that I am pulled towards.
    I am a CADCA Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselor Intern, as well as a CCBADC RW, Registered Recovery Worker, I can finally exhale after the 25+ years of active addiction. I so often said, "why?" why why????? Help help help.....I even had about 15 years of absolute fun and great times without a single consequence.....then I moved to Egypt, lived in Denial (The Nile), after a long long fight within.....I FINALLY KNEW WHY. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THOSE YEARS GOOD, AND BAD. THE LOSSES, THE SHAME, THE GUILT, THE BLAME.....BECAUSE THOSE WERE THE YEARS THAT I was doing "field work" yes. I didn't know it of course.
    But if it wasn't for my past?
    I wouldn't have a future!!!!!
    And I do have all of those, a past, a future, a today, a hope for a better tomorrow....But most of all?? I have a map.....and details.....and great places to visit....and share about.....to those who relate with this reply to you.....

    May the day be bright......OR BRIGHTER THAN U EXPECT.....SOULREAPER YOU ARE A ROCK STAR.....SO......
    until I return my friend.....YOU JUST HANG TIGHT OKAY????
    BLESSINGS AND MORE BLESSINGS TO YOU .....
    I AM HERE AS A SUPPORT FOR YOU AS YOU.....START .......
    CALMING YOUR STORMS........IT'S POSSIBLE.
    I AM LIVING PROOF.....

    Hi Matt
    If I remember this right you are on day 9 now ..is that right ??? you should be feeling a little better by now..It may not hurt to go to the doctor..but if he does not find anything wrong I would try to do some exercise...like walking or some or work out the abs..that really helps me..
    if you go to the Doc let me know how you are doing..
    talk to you soon, Melinda
