Hello everyone here at h/w I am brand new to this website and sorry if this post runs a bit long i am here to cover a few topics including my chronic illness a little on my religion and my situation that will soon lead me to my 4th withdrawal period.
well I was born with sickle cell anemia so ever since i can remember ive been in the hospital (50 times by the age of 2!) anyway as i got older the visits became less frequent because of me taking better care of myself and tolerating pain a bit more (somewhere around the ballpark of one visit every 2-3 months). That being said, ive been gettin presciption medication since i was 7 years old and i am now 21. The 1st time i started taking pills just for the "high" and I was not feeling any pain at all was around middle school age (12-13) and sadly over the course of then till now have become addicted to narcotics mainly percocet, roxicodone, morphine, and dilaudid. While i do take more than prescribed im not an overboard addict (meaning instead of the prescribed 4 a day i nowadays take around 6-8 a day) and while that still isnt something im boasting about
i just feel i can say it because i know about
3 people who take at least 10 or more roxicodone 30mg pills a day and others who are far worst than me with other/all types of drugs. I really do thank God for not letting me get to a point where it overtakes my life and i also know that im very wrong for not really making an effort to quit but nobody is perfect and this is one of my flaws, also i was raised in a strong christian family so God plays the biggest part in my life and he has always been there for me threw out all of my sickle cell crisis and any problems that arise in my life no matter how hard it may get.
now on to the problem
I have had three previous withdrawals in my life and they were absolutely horrible, one of which i faked being sick to get admitted in the hospital just for the medication. This month (on the 9th) I got my monthly prescript
ion for my pills 150 roxicodone 30mg pills, and right now i am running low on them and i even started to cut down about
a week ago and I know for a fact im gonna run out before the next script
on august 6th because i do have actual pain in my hip which is pending for surgery next month. With this hip pain its hard for me to walk, sleep, bend my leg, and even sit down sometimes so when you combine that with my addiction the pills have been going unusually fast this month so my question is does anyone have any suggestions or ways to go about
making a withdrawal period not come on so harsh or be as rough as they usually are...any remedies, tips, foods/drinks, anything is welcomed because im pretty sure by next week this time ill be taking my last pill if i havent already. I will continue to pray and hopefully ill get some responses.
Thank you in advance and if any of you would like to email me for anything personal im at: flybri87 at hotmail dot com
open to any and all emails regarding this so please do not hesitate.
