I have been looking all over for a support group dealing with this exact thing and duh, I should have known DS would have such a group and I am forever grateful!!!
I was on the 50 mcg Fentynl Pain Patch but weaned myself down to the 12 mcg patch and a month later tore the last one off and my pain clinic doctor put me on Norco 10/325's at 6 a day. Now I am down to 5 a day. I am so sick and tired of going to the clinic, peeing in a cup and feeling like some darn criminal! I looked up the recipe to help me to go cold turkey but I am not looking forward to it. I still need to get some medications from a regular doctor to help me through it but I have found that the pain meds just don't help the pain anymore, not really. I have been on them for 15 years! If anyone has ideas on how to make this transition easier, I would love to hear it!! Thank you in advance. Happy New Year to all. Sending everyone gentle hugs.
Could use some friends, I'm no stranger to booze but lately I've been drinking during the day into the night and it's starting to worry me. It has a hold over me.
I joined this group and read just a few posts before coming across staggering levels of lack of support from some of those of you fortunate enough to have kicked the booze.......well done with your efforts......perhaps spare a thought for those who are still struggling to get there......you know what they say......if you can't say any thing nice, don't say anything at all.......some of the people...
