I am on DAY 1 of quiting cold turkey hydrocodone. I am anxiety ridden and its a monday to boot! No long story here of how this whole thing got started... just that it did and I am here at this point is story enough. I am sick of being a complete slave to these pills. HOW HOW HOW will I make it... I have found this forum and joined as support because after reading all of the posts I can see the love and support flowing on these pages... I NEED support... my family DOES NOT know ANYTHING about this ... I am embarrassed and they would not understand (esp. my husband) This "disease" has taken over my life and I WANT IT BACK!!! HELLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPP!!! I am TERRIFIED of the withdrawel... will I be able to function at work? how do I get through that?
