quitting opiates cold turkey- on day 3 - Part 24

By smith9666 · Nov 26, 2014 · ·
  1. I was a little unsure at first what I was interested in but I knew it was in the medical field. I did 3 years of college and my first year was just general ed classes. I took an EMT class and certified right after but I wasn't really interested in going that route. I enjoyed it because of the "emergency medicine" side of it but it wasn't really my thing. The pay was already far below what I was making but that wasn't that important to me. During my clinicals at the hospitals I actually was spending more time with the radiologist in the er then any other dept so that was obviously something I figured out I liked a lot. I took a few classes after this that would allign with that program but never really applied.

    Great job Smith!!! I couldn't believe all the dreams I had once I stopped taking narcotics. I'm sure the running and sleep are helping tons! Has your pain gotten any better, excuse me if I missed it but what causes the pain? It's ok if you prefer not to answer. I use a cooling gel or icy hot at night on my low back and neck, it really helps the muscles relax. I hear capsaicin cream helps some too. It's really nice to read your very positive posts, I think sometimes we don't realize just how crummy these drugs make us feel because it's a slow deterioration.anyway, thanks for sharing your recovery..it's nice to read about success!
