    Thanks for the suggestion JD but I don't think you understand just how wicked methadone is. It's a disgusting drug and I will NEVER get back on it again. Talk about withdrawals. Withdrawals from methadone is the worst thing to go through. NEVER again. I am sick of people suggesting that I try methadone. I don't need it. But thanks anyways. It does NOT work for my pain and in fact I was in more pain everyday using it. I was the type of person that had to dose twice a day because my metabolism is so fast. Who has time to drive 13 miles one way to the clinic times two times a day. Not me or any other sane person I know.

    I don't think I got ill properly in the last 5 years. Then I have a sickness bug, flu and now a chest infection, so feel you on that front.

    I'm like you Mel, can't stand methadone. Been put on it a few times and it never held me for 24hours regardless of dose, and the side effects were evil. If your staying clean of opiates then Methadone would be a massive step back.

    Hang in there, we've got years worth of damage from doing drugs and shit, it won't get healed over night.

    Hope the civilian doctors work out better than the VA. Always here if need me, but think I'm not receiving DM's cos I keep getting emails but nothing in my inbox.

    Sorry did not realize it made you sick. Some people do well if only used short term; that is what I meant. See if you can get the gabapentin. It will help the shingles, the back pain, and anxiety. This drug is my lifeline.

    Hoping for better days ahead. Love to you.

    I fully support you in your decision to not take methadone, Mel, since after spending 6 years on that foul drug myself (and having had one hell of a time getting off the shit) my immune system was a wreck for a while afterwards. I would never, ever go back on methadone for anything or one. But that does not take away from the fact that many others consider it a wonder drug--for them but not all.
