Sat in sauna...140 degrees for 25 minutes. I feel so much better! I followed that with a shower switching from as hot as I could stand to really cold holding each for 1 minute. Now in PJs, sipping tea, gabapentin kicking in and will take restoril soon. Tomorrow I am going to get some clonidine. It is time to figure out how to control my symptoms well enough to taper and work. Has to be a way.

I am glad the story helped you. The sad part is in cardiology we see at least 2 cases a month of endocarditis from injecting pills. Get high people if you need to...but smoke, snort or chew. Iv pills is a really bad idea and just seems too many addicts do not know this.
We all regret our opiate choices. God knows I am an absolute moron with high level medical training who KNEW what this shit could do and I still got caught up in it. We all think it won't happen to us. Now we know we have to dig out. You are right. It sucking on some level is a really good thing. God knows I do not want to do this a third time! I really wish I could sneak out 2 weeks from work and just get sick though.
Hang in! Hugs, JD
