Since I was feeling so much better today, I decided to try to eat something. Big mistake. I didn’t eat tons, by any measure, but I did eat enough to be very uncomfortable. So, I went to vomit and, for the first time in a very long time, was unable to do so. I’ve probably […]
For those of you following my blog who also struggle with an opiate addiction, I just want you to know that drug replacement therapy is a godsend. I’ve been withdrawing for close to a week. I took my first doses of Buprenorphine (2x 4mg) a few hours ago and I feel an absolutely amazing sense […]
And, so it begins… I’m at the doctor’s office. He just gave me 4mg of Buprenorphine after confirming that I am indeed in mild withdrawal (I’d hate to experience the severe form).
