I posted on the introduction section but also wanted to post here. I start the Suboxone program Monday after deciding to be done with my 150-180mg oxycodone (30's) per day habit.

They've told me I have to be off of the pills for 2 days. This scares me so much. As stated in my other post, I start feeling withdrawals after 5 hours of nothing. I can't imagine how I'll get clothes on and to the doctors office (which is 35 miles away) in full blown withdrawal. Please pray for me to have the strength to do so.

Well, it's Saturday afternoon. I will take my last dose of oxycodone around 8 tonight. (They told me this would be ok instead of the full 2 days) I have been cutting doses in 1/2 and already having withdrawals. I'm so scared of tomorrow but not going on Suboxone isn't an option.... I have to make it until Monday morning.

24 hours is sufficient to be off oxycodone...

I remember going through that same hell..except in my case, they said I had to do without for 48 hours by myself...from Wednesday until Friday. I stopped around 10pm Wednesday night, and didn't get my Suboxone until around 2;30pm on Friday evening.

It was bad. I got a shower on thursday night and scalded my back trying to get myself warm...the cold chills were awful. Then hot flashes or fever...then running to the bathroom...
Couldn't eat. Didn't want to hold my head up...
But, soon as that Suboxone hit me...I'd say within 10 minutes of putting it under my tongue, it was like someone flipped a switch. I immediately started feeling better. And before I walked out the door to go home, I had already pulled off 2 of the 3 layers of clothing I had worn that day.

And I was convinced that I couldn't be helped by Suboxone before I started treatment...I just knew something was wrong with me, and I would have been better off in a grave somewhere...

That was 9 years ago. I haven't dared look back since...and love living life this way. Suboxone has saved me..and still is saving me.

I know it's a trying time, but try to think of something else ...watch something on TV...or do something that will occupy you ...
If you sit and think of how bad you feel, you'll feel even worse. I know, that's what got me..

Don't let your brain tell you how awful it is... It could be worse.
