I am glad to hear you went to your dr!! Now what we are all learning is like you said, learning to take it day by day!! Try to understand our feelings while our bodies are going through this withdrawal. My advice is, you stated you have a wonderful, supportive husband, use this, lean on him and use him to keep your mind busy as well!! The main thing your doctor did not tell you is your body will go through 2 withdrawals!! Please while you are tapering off and after use your support system!! I am learning a lot, with my husband, he deployed 280 last year, came back with sever PTSD and was already hurt. Wanted off of everything to start over because of his sever anxiety, so he is in a rehab with hardcore drug users and he is having a hard time. Like you he just wanted off of them. But he is learning a lot and like you said take it one day at a time, that is their motto!!! Please let me know if I can be a friend during this time!!View Thread
