I have struggled with depression and anxiety which turned itself and manifested into physical chronic pain and fatigue. The withdrawals, I had started takingn too much alcohol, vicodin, and klonopin - were terrible.. I still NEVER feel right. And suboxone while it helps, makes me feel sometimes like I'm coming out of my skin and can't carry conversations. I just feel really depressed as things have been so hard lately. On the outside everything's "perfect" ha ha. I mean good family, little girl, though she did come through a date rape, she's an angel. I just can't slow my thoughts down and feel normal physically or mentally. I would like the soboxone to really help I just don't want to feel so zoned out - does that go away? Anyone's story, or advice would be so deeply appreciated as I feel so alone in this and I feel like I can't put words to this experience and no one understands. I just need hope.
Hi there! I am a mother of 4 boys ages 10, 7, 5, and 2. I also suffer from terrible anxiety and stress. I've dealt with 2 failed long-term relationships which resulted in 3 of my 4 children and neither of the men have tried to even be in their children's lives. The last horrible relationship ended with him being physically and emotionally abusive to me and he ended up going to jail. During this whole time I was not addicted to painkillers but still always took them (about 2 or 3 pills a month, maybe) just because I was always in enormous amounts of pain all over my body from a dislocated hip, scoliosis, and so much stress that my body reacted to it by tensing up and always having huge "knots" all over my back and neck and it was hard to even get out of bed in the morning. I sought help a lot for this but doctors just put me on paxil and sent me to physical therapy. Nothing really helped. Then a "friend" started giving me oxy pills and amazingly enough I had no more pain!!! After a few months, I decided to stop taking them and even after about 2 months of not having any, I never felt the same again. It was all I could think about, I just wanted no pain!! So I started taking them again. Finally, a year later, after my new (wonderful) relationship failing because of my addiction and all of my mental problems from so much abuse and stress, I decided to see a dr about getting on suboxone. The first week was the best feeling I've had in a long time. I've been on it for about a month and 1/2 now. Unfortunately, I have a horrible feeling I will always have to be on it but at least I feel somewhat normal again. I don't have the urge to eat pills constantly and that was ruining my life in every way. So I just wanted to share with you my story and how I'm dealing with the suboxone right now. I know you feel alone and I do too. But really, we are not. There are so many people with the same problems but they just don't speak up about it. The most important thing for me right now is to feel "normal" for my kids and if that means taking the suboxone then that's what I will do. Try to take it one day at a time, I feel kinda like I'm in fast forward all the time too from the suboxone, but try to be thankful everyday for what you have. Hope this helps a little, you can write me anytime ok?
Ive been on SUBOXONE for 2yrs from 8yr Heroin/Methadone addiction.I love it and it has saved & changed my life.I don't want to ever get off of it.I have motavation and zest for life again.If you are still having negative feelings on Suboxone you need to talk to your Doctor.You shouldn't feel zoned out on the prescribed amount.Are you taking any thing else or drinking.? Anyways talk to you DOC.I think Suboxone is a miracle drug.Of course I might be saying something different if I have to withdrawel
