Talking This Can't Be True!

GUYS! This Suboxone is the best medication, EVER. I am on my second day and have NO wd's, NO cravings, NO "where are my pills" feelings, just normal. I even have pills sitting up at the pharmacy waiting for me to come get them and I am not even going to pick them up! The birds are singing and I just cannot tell you how RELIEVED I feel. I have chronic pain due a broken neck and a failed cervical fusion surgery. He said if this med also relieves my pain that I can stay on it as long as I want to. What a relief. Pillz, Mr. Grateful, you were RIGHT. I feel soooooo much better. I am gonna go back and read my posts from last week, when I was so doubtful and crying. People, there is hope. In many forms. Mine is the Sub. Thank God for this miracle!

Hope everyone is feeling well. As well as you can.

Re: This Can't Be True!

Yeah for you! I've been watching and reading your posts and talked with you a few times....and let me tell you that u are an inspiration to us all. Hopefully one day I can get to where you are at. Today I have a follow up appt at my Ortho Surgeons office and will get all my test results and see what the future has in store for my back situation...maybe I'll be one step towards turning away from there much needed but much hated pills as well. Good to know that the sub works for your pain too. Much luck to you and keep us all posted! I'm so proud of you!

Re: This Can't Be True!

Thanks you two! I really know that this is going to change my life. I am not being a drama queen or trying to sound corny and over the top. But, to just wake up in the morning and not have "where are my pills" come to mind first thing is wonderful. I just came in from outside. I was sitting under a tree, in the grass with my 4 year old and my 3 month old and we just sat. Sat and played and felt the wind. I wasn't worried about my next dose, my next drs appt, my next phone call, just enjoying LIFE. I cannot tell you how GOOD that feels. I appreciate you guys writing me back. It really made my day!

Hi Kim,

I'm so happy to hear that you're having a great day and that the medication is helping you the way it is. Way to go! Keep up the great work. I'll bet it's nice to spend some time outdoors with your children!

Hey Scared. Have you kicked that crazy *** husband and his "friend" to the curb yet? It's time to take out the trash, girl!

Unhappy Re: This Can't Be True!

Can you tell me how much the med cost? I am about to stop three years of hydrocodone use. I do have a ligitmate injury, but I am abusing the pain killer and I hate it. I know I need help to stop. I am happy to hear that the medication is working for you. This is my first time to post.

Re: This Can't Be True!

So happy to hear you are feeling better..the sub is a great option..thats why i decieded to give myself-the gift of freedom by going w/ long term maitainence..
The beauty is-you can maintain yourself on low doses-quite well-
I felt the same things you described..when i got serious about treatment-and found the right dose..
What a relief..
How are you Mr. Grateful???
Did you jump yet?
Im still around .5-3/4 mgs..
Dr. says another couple weeks..
Feeling it-but im fine..
Hope you are too!
Best of everything to the both of you..

Re: This Can't Be True!

Well, like I said. I could be on this Sub for a long time. It really does help the pain. And I never feel "high". Just normal. It's so great. When I called my doctor yesterday to tell him how I was feeling, I could hear ihm smiling on the phone. He said "This is just what I expected and just what I had hoped for you. You're gonna be fine." It made me feel SO MUCH BETTER. Anyway, it's another GORGEOUS day here in Northern Virginia and I am gonna walk my little one to the bus stop then walk to my girlfriends and have some coffee while our stay at home little ones play. NO CALLING AROUND FOR PILLS OR ASKING HER TO SIT SO I CAN GO TO THE DOCTOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am starting to feel like every day is a gift instead of something that I just have to get through some kind of way.


PS: Thanks all for putting up with my obnoxious exuberance over the last couple of days. I really appreciate it.
