Crazy things that you do.

When I had my Psychtic break in November. I looked at my pain meds and thought I would have enough to last until I saw my Dr in January, so I tore up Dec,prescriptions guess what nope nada I have 1 dose of Hyrocodone/Acetaminophen to take at bedtime tonight, my Fentonylpatches I used the last one last night. Guess when I see the Dr. January 27. Yeah a week and a half of agony to look forward to because of my stupidity. I'm afraid if I tell him he won't give them to me again, so what do I do? If I go to the ER they probably not give them to me. So I'm caught between a rock and a hard place. I feel so stupid about doing this.

Did you have to be admitted for this breakdown or was it a momentary thought?

No I wasn't admitted they just gave med meds and sent me home at the urgent care office, they thought I was just having a panic attack,but it lasted 3 days before the meds kicked in. I'm still taking them because I'm afraid that it will happen again. I have been living in a stressful family situation with my youngest daughter got pregnant last year and had a beautiful baby girl she will be 9 months old the 22nd. At Christmas she told us she is pregnant again. We down sized our home to a one room cabin with a loft there isn't room now with everyone that lives with us and all our junk lined around the walls. Nether one has a job, my husband and I are on fixed incomes due to bad health. I have to be healthy to keep taking care of Bella as I have since her birth. I told her they had 6 months to get jobs and move out before she has the new baby. I plan on raising Bella.

Weezie, don't feel stupid. It was a miscalculation due to the stress you were under. If the doc cares he'll understand, especially since it's not like you to do that. Just be honest. Call their office next week and ask for only enough until you see I'm on the 27th and then go to the appt and explain fully. Hugs & prayers for you dear friend! It's going to be ok.. πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

Weezie, I don't know if you have the shredded up prescription but the DEA would show that you did not get a prescription filled in the last 30 days. Like I said, I would make an appointment and bring that bottle of medicine with me. Dr.s know what it is for and they will know that you have bee under extreme stress. Let the doctor know what you did. Explain to her, you don't know why you did it. That your thinking was all messed up at the time but that you still need it because you are in pain. A good doctor should be able to see the date on the bottle, the name and the drug and understand how your account could be true. I am sorry that you were under that much stress that it brought you to that action. It must of been very severe. Life can be so very hard at times. Our group really knows that with living with pain. My best wishes to you and let me know what happens. It will make me feel better to know you are going through withdrawal. It is not a safe thing to do cold turkey.

Thank you both for your encouragement. I have really been dreading going without any pain meds for a week and a half. I am going to call my Dr's office in the morning. Keep y'all's fingers and toes crossed that he will be understanding about it.
