In Need of Encouragement

I just need some encouragement. Today is my 21st day off of hydrocodones. I had some good days but the past 7 have been horrible. I am very lethargic. VERY! Almost couldn't come to work! I think I could handle everything else if it wasn't for this. It is a weakness/fatigue in the my very core. Even my breathing is somewhat if I am sleeping.

Does it get better?

Is there anything that I can take, supplement wise to help?

It will get better. I was re reading the post I wrote when I detoxed off of fentanyl and oxys and I was very weak for weeks afterwards. I had three weeks off work but needed a few more at home. The worst is over. The weakness will pass.

Hi, good for you. How incredibly strong you've been to be at this stage of your recovery.
Keep on keeping on.
Be proud of yourself. Know the current symptoms you are experiencing will lessen and gradually fade away. You are a warrior. Hugs
