Posted by: John Paul June 3, 2018, 12:27 AM
Here I am at week 4 and I am at 7 mlgs. The last 3 day's were a little rough but no major withdrawal. Tonight is totally different ! I am back to the constant leg twitching and insomnia accompanied by serious anger. If the past weeks have taught me anything it is that it will get better and that there can be more good days than bad ! Here's to better day's ✔🖒If I can do this anybody can ! Cheers JP

Alternate between heating pads and ice packs for the legs, sleep is just hard to deal with but you can make it. Join a gym and really work out and sweat, eat healthy because what we put in our bodies help us a ton, drink water all the time.

Trust me it's gets better I am almost at my 3 year mark of totally off methadone. Don't listen to anything negative you can do it!!!!!

How are you doing now JP? I feel you on the anger bit..and pretty much everything else. It will start easing up. All your emotions coming back full yeah it's awful. If you can distance yourself a bit from the people that you feel set you off.. (even though it's mostly you)but I know sometimes unavoidable. Go for a walk when you feel yourself getting worked up. Hang in's all a process with all these things that will ease up. Listen to mojo about eating right. Makes a huge difference.
