Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board

It is your lucky day, I am filled with useless information. The song is "what's Up" by 4 Non Blondes. I wonder what peice of important info I lost forever so that I could retain this?

Music...I play guitar (badly) and during the past two years I stopped (cue neighbors rejoicing). I stopped listening to music without even realizing it. My big break away moment was late in to night 4 when I decided to take a drive to get out of my head. I ended up driving longer than I should have (the pain was quite bad) but it felt so good to FEEL music again. Of course now I think every love song is actually a veiled song about drug addiction. All you Norco users, are you telling my the the Coldplay song "Yellow" isn't about Vicodin? I could debate this all day (mostly because I'm holed up with insomnia!).

Since that night I have listen to music non-stop. It has been my constant companion. Oh how badly I want to just make everyone a playlist right now so they could feel some of what I've been listening to. I promise I'll keep my rant on this short though. In your music rediscovery check out a song called "Let Go" the lyrics (which I'd link if I could, stupid firefox) are at:

It felt rather poignant. I'd be interested to hear how many others had this awakening.

Glad to brighten your day, as you have mine. If I can make even one person laugh...well then that person owes me $10. Pay up, it's Hollywood baby.

From the "I Spoke Too Soon" File: Tonight is miserable. I hurt all over. Even the voices in my head are suffering from phantom limb pain. Oddly enough I don't want a morphine (takes an hour to kick in) I want a friggin vicodin so bad I would run over my own mother to get it! Of course I would run her over for a Starbucks discount card, so...

This feels far too much like night 4 all over again. What worries me is that I only seem to feel badly after I wake up from sleeping. Long before I found drugs or withdrawal I was an insomniac, so becoming afriad of sleep is a very bad thing for me. This is especially painful since the prior 24 hours were so good. Man I hate the step back. Nothing is helping either. All of my little tricks to make the pain go away and the RLS stop are doing nothing. I am just going out of my mind right now. I knew in the back of my mind this might happen, but I wasn't prepared for it.

About the only thing that is going to help is writing so since most normal people are asleep I'm going to work on a script to try and distract myself and wait for this to pass.
