I mean I know a lot of people who take muscle relaxant to sleep. Is that abuse? That's how it started for me. Then I got prescribe zopliclone for sleep. Then one tab wasn't enough so I took two, even thought I was only meant to take one. Is that abuse?
I know I have abuses T3s. When a friend of mines died, beside when I was at work, I was taking them to feel numb. But that only lasted a few weeks. I still do it from time to time. But very infrequently. I do have them for my migraines. So I use them for that.
And now I'm on clonazapam for my anxiety. I take it at night. But one days off, I take one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I just sleep all day instead of feeling. So my doctor did tell me I can take them 3 times a day. So is that abuse?
I guess here would be where I say I'm bipolar and currently working towards finding a good med combo.
Basically, do I have a problem? Is there a like sketchy sector I can fall under. I don't take other people's pill(just my moms t3s once, and it was really for a migraine, and I was out). I dot go to work high or drive. I just want to feel numb and not feel my constant roller coaster of emotions. I don't take an unsafe amount.
Thanks to anyone that wants to listen. I have had a drinking problem for the last few years. I've been happily married for 24 years. We have a son who is 16. Today I realized I need to put the bottle down and stay away. I have had many deaths in or family over the last few years and I relied on drinking to help me get through my issues. Today I started my sobriety and I thought I would join this...
Hi folks,First I want to admit that the voice in my head won out on why I should care, it's a crap shoot if I'm going to die from COVID, etc., etc. The virus hit close to home (5 family members, 2 near death, plus a 91 year old mother who I cared for, and now isolated in a LTC). And I know lots of people have worse stories....that doesn't seem to help.i happened to speak with a real estate...
