Not sure if I even want to remember my multiple detoxes, but I guess it's important to let others know, that even though you think you're going to die, or maybe you just want to die, because you feel so horrible, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My detox experiences were from pain killers, methadone, Xanax and anti-depressants. Funny thing is, coming off Zoloft, which is an anti-depressant, was actually as bad, or worse than the other detoxes.Not in a physical sense mind you, but I came off it way too fast and went a little crazy for awhile!! I just wasn't thinking clearly and I had been taking it for OCD and until I was able to get that under control through cognitive therapy, it was definitely difficult. Each time I was in withdrawal, I would tell myself, never again, never again, but I lost track of how many times I went through it over my long drawn out addiction. Went you pick up again, after being clean, you always think that this time will be different. But it never is. To get clean again, you have to go through the same hell to reach the other side. I'm sure other opiate addicts can relate to the sweating, chills, shaking, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, etc., etc., etc. I went on methadone to avoid those pitfalls to get off pain killers and that was the worst mistake of my life. It took me 18 months to wean off it, and I was probably in full blown withdrawal for a good part of that time. I was actually hallucinating and sometimes didn't even know who my family was. BUT, I made it through, and so can you!! Good luck to anyone in that situation, and know that I am here if you need to vent or just tell me how awful you feel, because I can relate.
