MDJunction to me

benf"I came to MDJunction looking for answers I had about being Bipolar. a friend was suffering from this and I wanted to understand what it was. the more questions I had ,the more I learned how to deal with my own issues, PTSD,Depression,insomnia just to name a few. the people I have meet here have become more than friends, they have become family.
I have gone from "yes I need help" to "how can I try to help you?" I am so grateful for all the help and support the members have given me here, I am glad I can return the favor by being one of the many great group Leaders. ( benf)

unfortunatelyadicted I guess my story on kicking the addiction to the medication Morphine

Day 3

Oct 12 2010
I'm on the third day on my path to kicking morphine addiction. I have the chills but the sweats pouring out of me like crazy. Having very bad mood swings and sadness at how I got to where I am now. Serious esteem issues. I feel like...well, you know. The pain in my back and pain of withrawal symptoms are all I've read about here and more. Reading is nothing compared to feeling. Going to try and rest now. Thank you guys so much for sending your hugs.

I have had a similar feeling of withdrawal. I was taking an anti-anxiety medication for about three months. The withdrawals are so unbearable sometimes I can't sleep.

However, because I was unable to just stay at home and sleep all day, I had to find a way to get through them. I went to the store and bought a multi-vitamine, hug jugs of water, and I started to eat healthy. Although I felt dizzy sometimes during the day, at least I was able to physically work and remain social.

You may want to consult with your doctor about your withdrawal symptoms. They may be able to find alternatives to going cold turkey. I know that you can beat it though, with treatment and your higher power.

tyvm for commenting. Unfortunately I'm incapable of physical work and socializing is hard. I only have my immediate family and to me, their my higher power. In my life they have to be enough. I'm from a broken family except for grand parents whom are gone from cancer. Outside of them[sue and kids] now, I'm alone. I have to some
