hi, i'm back and so desperate and afraid. yesterday i went into full blown withdrawal after downing from 4 mg sub to two mg to nothing. oh my God, I went to the ER, and though I've never done drugs in my life last week I smoked marijuana, I know STUPID to just try it and help with my chronic pain. It showed up in my blood so of course they thought I was just after pain medicine. I called my dr. and he said bite the bullet, I never am rude, but I hung up on him as I found him soooo cruel to put me on this and not understand . He said withdrawals are flu like and I find them agony as I'd rather be dead. I don't know what to do. He gave me one more and I'm on two mg a day. I don't know how to communicate with him as he "knows it all". I like him, but he is not very caring nor do I feel like these dr.'s or anyone believe what you are feeling. I feel such a burden as I'm having trouble taking care of my baby, my mom is helping a lot, I feel so weak and ashamed. I can't afford a treatment center or I'd hop a flight today. Im twenty nine female and single mom oh god i just don"t know what to do
any advice or help would be more than appreciated>
Consider going to some NA or AA meetings for support and commraderie. Or group counseling. It will pass, but quicker if you get some support at least a couple of times a week. You may feel weird and out of place at first, but, then you will look forward to them. I feel my best when I am actually helping others and you might too.
