Wankster,

First, i'm surprised Wankster 1-9 were already taken :wink:

I know this isn't great news to you, but youre hitting all the milestones. Energy was an issue for me about this time. At least this means we can be pretty sure what is next.

I, and others here, have advocated getting out, doing SOMETHING, when w/d-ing but there comes a time when the lack of energy and muscle pain are too much. So make a base somewhere, couch, floor, someplace not near your bed (you want to keep that association for sleep only). Get some books, load the computer with movies, stare at a TV, put headphones in. Really, just keep at least one sense occupied. you dont need to follow along with anything, just keep distracted.

I think next on the agenda is muscle pain, ive read some of your other posts and see that youve been running. That might make this next milestone less intense or delayed further out. Get some advil.

In my experience, when the acute w/d was over, it happened FAST. I hope it is the same in your case. Yeah it was a bad 3 days, but it broke like a fever. within 2-4 hours, pain went down, i suddenly had energy, and it steadily improved over the next few days. Hang in there, it does end.

Also, in reading your other posts, did you get an engineering degree and 3 (soon to be 4) job interviews while breaking the opiate habit??? You'll look back and shrug these few days off :D

Yeah, I was still taking dosages of suboxone though when i was interviewing. I just started this preocess a couple days or so ago. Thanks for all the tips. What makes my situation tougher is that I have a 3 year old little girl to look after. Nothing breaks my heart worse than seeing her sad. :( I told her daddy was sick with a tummy ache, she inturn has been taking care of me :) I gotta work tonight (bartending, ugh). It's gonna be tough putting on a face for a the hundreds of people that are going to see me tonight, but f' it. Its just one night. I can be a little off for a night, right? Anyways, thanks again.
53 hours n counting...
