I'm 25 years old. I was taking OxyContin for about 2 years when I was 20 and I decided to get clean a few years ago. It was a long 4 days but I finally did it with the help of friends. About 2 years later I Unfortunately fell back in the trap. I've been taking about 30 mg of OxyContin per day for the last year. I'm 100 pounds. Can barely eat. No exercise. No energy. I just want to get back to my normal self. I've been through the wd process many times due to running out and I am terrified to do it again. I wanted to ask about any ways you know of to help with the restless legs and no sleep. I have not been to a doctor and do not plan to do so. I'm tapering off now and the wd has already started slightly. I'm so scared. Help. Tylenol pm doesn't help me- I tried it a few years ago and I woke up from a 5 minute nap gasping for breath. (I had taken 3 Tylenol pm). I will have some cramps but not a lot and no vomiting. The sweats are just the worst part. Makes me not want to do anything at all. Restless legs is also a tough thing to deal with especially with my boyfriend having to sleep beside me at night. This time around I am by myself. My boyfriend and I live together but he has no clue as to what I've been doing and I do not plan on going to him for help or comfort. I want to do this alone and get it over with so that I can get back to my happy self. Our relationship has plummeted over the past year and even if I don't want to admit that my mind has changed- I know that it has. I get easily frustrated and upset with so many things that I used to not do. It's like I can't control myself anymore.
Your relationship has plummeted as you cannot be honest with your partner? I'm shocked; damn him for his non judgemental ignorance, you are already hurting the man!
As for you, you already know the answer; you have to bite the bullet and remind yourself that it is character building. Just 120 hours, do it.
