Hello, I am new here.
Today is the first day that I've gotten out of bed. I've been taking oxycontin for quite a while, huge doses every day, and I've finally had enough!!
I quit cold-turkey 5 days ago, and it's been the hardest 5 days of my life. The bathroom problems, the aches, the shivers, the goosebumps, the crushing depression... I felt like I was going to die. I even had a small episode where I think I may have had a fever-dream...
I DO have a doctors appointment Tuesday, and I will tell them everything. For now, though - I am relying on brute strength and hope.
My question is: Am I out of the woods, here?
I got up today, af5th day ter a few hours of sleep. Tried to eat, clean the house... took a bath and threw up a whole bunch, ha
This is the first time that I've really seen a glimpse of light. I think I can do this! I think I'm going to make it, and I'm so scared, excited, exhausted, nervous, surprised...
Just wondering if anybody out there has done this and can throw me some words of support. I have never felt so alone in my life. I can't believe how out of control I became and I'm ashamed.
But no more.
This is my 5th day of W/Ds - how much longer!?
Thank you so much for reading....
*I am SO done!!*
