... sleeping good and not ready to go back to work. It's rough it's like starting new getting use to yourself without methadon people tell me it's goons be years till I feel normal I hope that ain't true. Everyone dealing with this it's only yourself holdind you back it's scary but at the end of the day you ain't worrying bout going to dose or depending on a drug were all better and stronger than a little cup of juice will power will push you through trust me the withdrawls are hyped by diff people and hearing that it scares us but ain't nothing more scarier than giving your life away to this disgusting habit
A couple of things that helped as I came off suboxone were to walk for exercise, it really helped produce endorphins that helped me feel better mentally and physically, helped regulate the eat/sleep/wake cycle and I swear I had not withdrawal fro the subs. I had read this piece of advice from and actual methadone patient and it worked. I also have a tendency to get depressed and so knowing I was going to attempt to stop the subs, I got on my amitriptyline again before I quit and I also made sure I got plenty of support. I have read so many scary posts about getting off suboxone so, I decided to do the walking mpvt suggested and it helped. As I came off of it, another member Maso told me to keep busy and that really helped to. You have done something that is nothing short of a small miracle, I hope you can enjoy that you did something others can't or won't do. Just make sure you don't isolate yourself, and start reaching out and doing things. The sleep will come, the walking will help.
