I had to drive an hour and half to my doctor hat prescribes my suboxone. And for those of you that dont know, you have to be in moderate withdrawals from the last painkiller you took before you can start the suboxone, and the doctor gives you your first dose in his office, and you have to wait several hours to make sure you dont get worse withdrawals from the subs (you go into precerpitated withdrawals if you arnt in withdrawals, and it's way worse) well I didnt sleep the night before because of the withdrawals, and was terribly sick. Well after they gave me my first dose, I felt great, except for a migraine. Well when I get migraines, I vomit like crazy. Well my mom went with me, but she doesnt drive, but the moment we left the office, I started to feel nauseaus, and we where in a town I wasnt familiar with, and all of the sudden I pulled into a bank parking lot and vomited EVERYWHERE. I somehow managed to drive home, stopping half way so my mom could get herself something to eat, and I took a quick 20 minute nap. Then when I finally got homed, I threw up all over the place again. I was in terrible pain and couldnt sleep til after I took some ibprofen and finally fell asleep, but I was in such bad shape, I guess I left my front door wide
open, my neighbor came and locked the door for me. It wasnt a fun expereince. But somehow the next day I woke up feeling great, and we packed for a week vacation to the beach. But I get migraines when I have to drive to far places, which always comes with vomiting. It's not fun at all, I get carsick to easily, and it's even harder when your the one driving.

I hope that you were able to have a good time on your vacation. I don't know if it is migraine's or what it is that I'm getting but I know that if there were a drive by shooting during one of them and I got hit......it might be a relief! The pain is undescribeable! But, I'm sure that a lot of you know what type of pain I'm talking about. I do feel better today but could still stay in bed. I go see the new rheumy tomorrow and I swear, if she can offer me no new suggestions on this mess then I'm not going to another new doctor for a very long time. I've easily been to over 100 doctor's in my lifetime and enough is enough. I went off of the Cymbalta and started on Prozac. I don't think that my happy pill has kicked in yet either so that doesn't help. All I can think about is resting or sleeping and my husband wants to cood and watched the cussed basketball games. I don'w mean to talk about him in a bad way. He is my sweetie and he takes excellent care of me but today I don't even really want to smell food. Now if we were going to pick up aa sub somewhere, I could eat that! Ha! Ha!. Please pray that this doc has some new med she can try or something. I think I'll just start bawling if se doesn't. I'm about at the end of the rope this week.
