Re: Nervous about Suboxone taper
Hi, I'm a "female in my 30's" too, with three kids. but mine are older (I guess we started early) so they can pretty much take care of themselves. Anyway, I agree with what was said about it being really hard to taper from such a high dose, especially that fast. I am on day 15 of a cold turkey withdraw from just 2 mg of sub. I was only on it for two months and tapered from just 16 mgs the first couple of days, then 12 mgs, etc. etc. Stopping cold from just 2 mgs was hard, I'll be honest, and a slow taper is the best in my opinion. But whatever you do, just know you can do it.
Look, honestly, because you need honesty, I was in total denial about how I was going to feel. The sub made me feel amazing, energetic, great, like a HUMAN again after the opiates. I thought that was the 'real me' but it wasn't. I guess I am re-wiring like everyone writes, but it is slow, depressing and painful. Just get support, from wherever you can, because you are going to need it. YOU CAN DO IT but get some help if possible. Your kids are worth it, your daughter, and YOU ARE WORTH IT. Read, research, learn. There are so many great posts here about supplements, tricks, etc. Take and use what you need. Good luck and god bless.
