So scared I can't breathe

Jan 01, 2017 2:52 PM

I am leaving for detox tomorrow and I am so scared. Even though it's a nice place. I am still petrified. My foot isn't totally healed and I know because I did this 20 years ago that it's gonna suck. I just need some words of support and from anyone who's been there. Thank you all for being here and happy new year!

Jan 01, 2017 3:15 PM

Will be here for you hun. Although I have never been through detox my sister and other friends have. It is not an easy thing to do and I so admire you for taking this step. Never underestimate the courage it takes to take that first step. I think that must be one of the hardest steps to take. ((( gentle hugs))) you are an amazing warrior. You got this - and for the moments you find yourself struggling you just need to give us a shout out. We will help hold you up until you are once more strong enough to take over the reins once more.

Keep us updated if possible and know we are 110% behind you.

Jan 01, 2017 3:19 PM

Thank you, mimikay that helps and I will have my phone with me. So I will update for sure.

Jan 04, 2017 3:08 AM

Hey all. It's 4am and I can't seem to get more than two hours of sleep at a time even with all of the Valium they have given me. I am using all of your courage and strength with my own I can muster up. Thank goodness they allow computers and phones. Back to Netflix.

Jan 04, 2017 3:14 AM

You're not the only one having trouble sleeping!!! I've had a bad night with painsomnia myself and I can't get motivated at all but then both me and my daughter haven't been feeling well with flu like symptoms even tho we had the flu jab over 2 months ago now!!!

Just try to relax and not watch things like thrillers or horrors or things that keep you thinking and awake. Go for light hearted easy to follow TV programmes and films so that you may fall back to sleep easily.
Hopefully you'll be able to get some more sleep xx

Jan 04, 2017 5:10 AM

Oh, so sorry that you are sick and in pain. But I can certainly use some relating here. I am just so happy that I made it through the night. I don't even need to be awake for hydration they will bring my IV to me and my food. It's a super nice place. Almost had a seizure last night. But I didn't so I am very happy with that . You all again, give me strength! Xoxo. Feel better Sezzy and if anyone has insomnia send me a message.

Jan 04, 2017 10:18 AM

Hang in there walkingonfire. I love your name. :)

There really is light at the end of the tunnel. ((hugs))

Jan 04, 2017 10:21 AM

Breathe. And breathe again. And breathe again... and soon you will be on the other side. Peace and love!

Jan 04, 2017 10:25 AM

I am so ever grateful for you all. Still really shaky but the hardest part is to come when they take me off of everything. I know that you all are here.

Jan 04, 2017 10:27 AM

It took me two months to free my body of its dependence on Opana ER, but I'll never regret it. Plus after you kick it eveyone thinks you're super badass!

Jan 04, 2017 11:55 AM

Oh wow, well done SaphiraJewel. You both are so brave for going thro it. I wish I had that bravery, I have no idea what to do as I'm on morphine and I'm not sure if I'm going thro a flair (been in it since the beginning of February) or if the more pain I'm feeling is my new level of pain (apart from the flu like symptoms I'm having atm).
My pain clinic nurse wants me to start to reduce my morphine and I would love to but I'm terrified of what the pain will be like without it and how I would cope if this level of pain is my new life. I'm sorry I'm rambling again!
I honestly think you guys are amazing for going thro this. SaphiraJewel how long ago was that? Your very brave for making the decision and going thro all the ups and downs and to come out on the other side xx

Walkingonfire you've done the hardest part in making the decision to go thro this and you'll come out the other side and be glad you went thro all the ups and downs of withdrawal. Keep strong we're here if you need us xx

Jan 04, 2017 2:37 PM

Thank you all. My hands have been shaking so badly I am really starting to feel it. Saphira thank you for letting me know that you can relate. I wish I had at least another week before they started tapering me. But what can I do?

Jan 05, 2017 10:59 AM

Thinking of you today hun.

Jan 05, 2017 1:23 PM

Thanks Mimikay! I am having a rough day. It was raining and then cold and they are tapering me too fast. I am going to stay 2 more days..

Jan 05, 2017 1:24 PM

Thinking of you too.☺

Jan 05, 2017 1:35 PM

You've got this walkingonfire, you're a strong warrior. Just think how good you'll feel when it's over and you are your own again, we're all here sending you strength and positive vibes.

Jan 05, 2017 1:38 PM

Hugs to you Sezzy. My RSD and fibro are flaring like crazy today and I am probably going to be laying in bed most of the day coloring.

Jan 05, 2017 1:58 PM

Funnily enough I'm sitting in my bed colouring while my daughter is laying beside me kinda watching a movie and kinda sleeping as she started a course of antibiotics earlier today for an inner ear infection 😢 I'm a little better myself today just soo soo soooooo very cold ❄
Give us a shout if you need support we're here for you xx
