I am detoxing off morphine after many years, tolerance was my culprit. I have been detoxing over eight months;( I want my life back to a tolerable existence;) I am one month free and still I am having symptoms of withdrawals , sleep is only four hours a night , GI tract is trying, almost to 50% there;) when will this end for me? Idk what to do I feel horrible about 50-60% of my day;( Doctor says at one month i should not be where I am , I should be finished? I know myself and I am still detoxing ? I am so proud of myself but still waiting to celebrate because I am still having bouts of cravings? Also my doctors pa says I should not have issue's with narcotics given at this point as well for my steroid injects but I say what so soon? May I please have some varied responses for encouragement I really feel hopeless now:( I just want to feel better Thank u so much;)View Thread
I hope u r able to get help for your issues;) NO one likes detoxing but as unhappy as I am now I know I am doing right! So many of us addicted by choice or the pain made us addicted either way getting free is the best way to go;) u need a medication vacation as my doctor told me and I thought when hell freezes over but he was right I needed too and I was scared to death to do so cuz more suffering , have u tried to tapper down slowly or go to ur doctor in attempt to seek professional help? Why r u taking more? Is it cuz ur abusing meds or ur pain is not handled correctly? I am just a somebody with a voice so..seek professional help;) They did get educated for a reason and they the doctors network , they are in the know;) It can be a bit intimidating to admit ur need help but go for it they see this too much of the time , sadly;( gl don't worry u can work it out View Thread
