into the void..again...is rob 325 still here?
into the void..again...is rob 325 still here?
I'm at the end of my rope man, tried to do the 24hrs last night..last dose 7:00, took a soma and woke up at midnight...bathroom was calling, then again about 1:30, I was feeling mild withdrawl, I am no stranger to it so I zonked back out again but at somewhere around 3:00 am I woke up in full-blown w/d?? The ONLY time I have EVER felt that bad was when an "addiction specialist" unknowingly put me in the dreaded precitiated withdrawl. I have been fighting the good fight for 6 years now...my wife has stuck all this out with me and agrees that this was VERY wrong...8 hours in??? for FULL BLOWN w/d HELL? for the last 2 weeks I have been awakened in the middle of the night sweating and hurting..but now THIS was different..the skin crawling and pain was to the point of me going to the ER! instead I spent another hour waiting for 20 mg of hydro to bring me back...didn't work..I took another 20 and FINALY got some sleep.
I had just got on subs a month ago..whe i induced I was 16 hours in and it was nowhere NEAR what I felt last night after only 8??
I reached out to you then and you told me to not touch the painkillers, but I didn't listen..
I won't waste your time with my entire backstory unless you want to hear it but basicly I'm on about 100mg hydro/day
(10 norco 10/325/day) and I don't really want to go back to the rapid detox..but there is NO WAY I'm gonna make it past the 12-hr mark
As I said, I am no stranger to withdrawl and I've been on subs 3 times now and never was it this bad trying to make it to the 24hr mark...I had to be at LEAST 20+ on the cows scale..but I can NOT do that again...ummm have you ever dealt with this situation?
Subs worked for me before...and I WAS on them for 3 years at one point..that was awful, but I really am out of ideas, if you are out there, would you be willing to share some knowledge and some of your time with a 5 time loser?
sorry if I sound mixed-up..I am...only got a little sleep and spent all day looking into rehab options..my brain is melted right now
geez..I should have done a little more research on this site..you've been helping people here for a LOOOONG time, karma owes you BIG I also want to add, that last month when I slipped off the subs..it was because I was on day 11 or so of a supposed 5-day sub detox/taper (I am still ill-informed even after all these years...too many pill-pushing doctors) I never touched opiates until I hit 35..I have been on more than my fair share of Rx (I've been taking valium since I was 16 and it never turned bad when I didnt have them, then I had a nsty xanax habit,but I kicked those as well with the help of the same "addiction specialist that put me in precip)
just to re-itterate..in your experience, has anyone ever been in full w/d in such a short (8hr) time? I find it very hard to believe that I'm the only one..esp as I'm on much less hydro than the other times I went on subs.
Also I want to explain that I want sobriety BAD..I have kicked all other vices in my life besides cigarettes..and those vices are far too many to list here. I'm in a band and drugs/alcohol has been part of my life from age 13 until 35 (I'm 41 now) I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic when I went to rapid detox the 1st time and it changed my life..I lost 60 lbs and have a very good diet/exercise regiment..but these pills are whipping me BAD
sorry again if I'm jumping the gun here..geez...I dont even know what I'm apologizing for anymore

srry, I meant 30+ on the c.o.w.s.
It was full-blown w/d...I would LOVE it if you would help me out. I can't jump until next week now though, I was really wondering if you had any insight as to why I would be so deep in w/d so fast? Anybody else you help ever been that far that fast? As I said..I am no stranger to w/d and it does suck, but I'm more afraid of being stuck on opiates any more. I'm sweating up a storm right now and I did 20mg of hydro 2 hours ago?
I DO have an upper-respritory thing going on right now, but I've been making it to band practice and singing..so I'm really confused here. I've got dentist tomorrow so I guess it's better that I didnt make the jump last night as I'm getting another root canal..then moms day (can't miss it being sick)yeah..it's fun to be me lol.
I will talk with you tomorrow, thank you very much for getting back to me..and in such a timely fashion...you're really payin it forward man...thanks in advance. I REALLY DO want to get clean and STAY that way..thanks again
