Oxycodone-No Stranger To The Rain - Part 31

  1. Hi Beachwalk,

    Thanks for asking about me. I am doing so-so. Some good days and some filled with pain and anxiety. Just like a yo-yo lol.
    How are you doing? I know you said the kratom withdrawal has been
    rough. I still take it but not everyday. Perhaps I am having a little Wed from it. Who knows? I do feel better and it helps the pain, so not a bad trade off.

    I so do hope that you get to feeling a lot better soon. We don't need to feel guilty if we hurt physically and treat our pain. Also, my anxiety is so bad at times, I'm thinking about asking the doc for something to calm it down. If I have to take something the rest of my life to feel happy and productive, then so be it. I am tired of torturing myself. It goes against what I wanted which was no medications, but if that means being anxious all the time, then I guess I will just have to take something. We will see.

    Have a great weekend!!!

    hi gdw, you have the right attitude.....seriously there's no need to live our lives in pain if we need help. i take an anti-depressant and there's no shame in that.

    anxiety can be debilitating so i hope your dr can give you something to alleviate it. we are not perfect physical specimens - nobody is. we have a right to be pain free and not white knuckle it - afterall, it's the only life we have.

    you do what you need to do.....sending a hug to you. thank you and have a good weekend too.

    GDW,

    Ask your doctor for a SSRI. It is the treatment of choice for anxiety/depression. They could also use something called Buspar. When you use drugs like opiates and benzos, the brain's neurotransmitters get all fucked up. Most of the time, people need the above listed drugs to reset things. The treatment is for one year and then stop. If the anxiety returns, then you take for life.

    I have been doing a lot of thinking these past few days. For those of us with chronic pain or generalized anxiety disorder, getting off our drugs might have been necessary but it leaves us screwed. I have come to terms with the fact that I NEED something for pain or I just can't function. Perhaps the same applies to you?
