I have been taking prescription pain meds for the better of the past 7yrs, gradually getting worse. I have a severe injury to my leg that has caused me to endure many unsuccessful surgeries. I just had surgery on Aug 22nd, but this time I feel like it may have worked and since I'm still off work for a few weeks I want to quit taking pills, but I don't have a regular doctor and I have some things I deal with mentally and I know this is about to make that worse. Currently it's been just over 24 hrs with just a half of 1 pill. I couldn't sleep last night and I'm hurting but I feel like it isnt as bad as my mind wants me to think it is. I need my life back, I need to learn to live with a little pain and not rely on these things that are controlling my life... any tips please.
