Re: thank you
Hi no patience, I just wanted to thank you. As you feel others have helped you, I feel knowing your story has helped me. Knowing someone else has lived through the nightmare mad it seem not impossible. Today is day 11 and I actually feel great. I am shaky a little but had a whole nights sleep , with the help of a sleeping pill. Its 8:30 am and I am up , showered, dressed, hair and makeup done. Methadone for some is a life saver. I just have heard horror stories since researching this medication. Dr's who dispense this medication believe that only 1% of pain patience become addicted. Well I know now that there is a difference between addiction and dependancy but before thought the 2 were the same. I think that there shold be a note attached to this medication that says "If you ever want to stop taking this medication, your body will feel like its in the pit of hell and your mind will make you think you are going nuts. These are symptoms of withdraw that can last weeks. YOu will wish you were dead" The only thing good about me is that I never got high from methadone so now that my physical withdraws are over , I will not have that craving to take pill. I thank god everyday that I never took more then I did. Also, just wanted to say something about your husband , mine was the same way, first couple days he was great then acted as if it was in my mind. Noone can understand what it feels like unless they go through it. Don't be so hard on him. I'm also sure they go through feelings . Like we did it to ourselves , it's not thier fault, why should they be punished or why should thier daily routine change. thanks again to you and all who responded to my post. There were days I was too weak to respond but I did read each and every one of them..THANKS TO ALL!!!!!
