Hi I am new to this board. I am so glad to know I am not the only one addicted in this world. Qucik story I have 3 herniated discs and two protruding. Started out with percocet, then led to oxy then dosage kept getting bigger and bigger and so on... i liked the feeling plus it took away the pain. I was running out early and it would make me sooo sick. Then I started buying fromthe streets and getting presciptions from my DOC. Well, I tried to quit cold turkey and could not do it being a full-time mom and working full time. I was way to sick. After weeks of thinking and sooo much anxiety I thought about going to my pain management Doc and letting him know the situation but, I was afraid of him kicking me out and emotionally did not think I could handle it? I also thought about him asking me to switch to methadone but, I did not want o throw up any red flags he is very strict.. Well I decided to go to the meth clinic and even though I am doing ok on it I AM SCARED TO DEATH!! I am hearing losing your teeth in your bones and so on... Here I thought I was doing the right thing and I am starting to think this is a death sentence. I am trying to get my life together. I have lost everything (financially wise) I was trying to get my life back and possibly my pay check. And wanted so badly to be a mom again a wife but, this METHADONE stuff everything I'm reading is scaring me. Please if anyone has experience with this will you please respond!! So I can sleep toninght. I am still in pain with my back but, it seems that the methadone is starting to help easing the pain but, I dont want to end up toothless or boneless j.k ha!! Anyways, thank you so kindly for reading I know you all are so helpfull on this board and very encouraging all posts would be greatly appreciated!! god bless!!
