Fiesty, you are NOT a coward! It takes great strength and courage to do what you are doing whether you realize it or not. You could just as easily gone 'dr. shopping' or to the 'streets' to get your DOC. I have to admit that the idea of doing that was off limits to me as well, but I came SO close to buying some online without a prescription. The only reason I didn't was because I knew my husband would see it on the credit card and I wouldn't be able to hide it.

The shakes and the nausea will soon pass, just try to take it one day at a time. Don't think about anything but getting through the next hour. Try to sleep if you can as much as possible. I also found that warm baths helped. One of the worst things for me was the fever. I had a low grade fever for about two weeks which drove me nuts, going from sweats to chills and back again. If you alternate tylenol and motrin every two hours you can help keep that under control as well as some of your muscle aches. I know this is not easy, but it is worth it! You deserve to do this for yourself; think of it as a gift to yourself. Obviously not the w/d part, but the clean part that results. It's like being born again. Your mind will be clear and everything will be fresh and new, you won't be sick anymore, and you will have your energy back. You will feel like a whole new person and you will have a great outlook on life. I promise!!! It's absolutely amazing!
