Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board

Hi all....

Well today I am working on my fourth day with no vicodin. I tapered myself off and physically I am feeling pretty good....sweaty and I don't sleep well, but my body itself is definately feeling better. But mentally, I am completely messed up. I have some good moments, and then bam I am crying and feeling like I will never be happy again. Someone please tell me this gets better. My Husband told me this morning that I seem like I'm in my own world, I hardly talk or smile. I know he's getting frusterated and I try so hard to shake this feeling that seems to loom over me. I just want to feel happy again. I was thinking maybe some kind of anti depressant, but I can't even go to the doctor right now. It takes 30 days for my insurance to switch my doctor for me, and I just don't yet trust myself to go back to the same doctor. I know I can do this, I just need to know that it gets better.....thanks for listening.

Thanks for posting.....I was taking vicodin ES, around 8-10 a day for 1 and a half years. I just keep telling myself, that it will get easier everyday....and honestly it has, like I said physically i am feeling pretty good, I just hope it goes the same way with this depression.
