Hi, been posting in another section, was hoping to maybe get some specific answers over here from fellow opiate/opioid addicts.
Okay, anyways, some back ground: got into a motorcycle accident early 2017', got hooked on pain pills thereafter for like 20 months. Was popping percs and oxys, nothing else. (Btw, sorry if this has been discussed to death, just wanted some fresh chat about it. thanks)
First attempt at quitting failed due to the excruciating physical withdrawal symptoms but nailed it the second time by doing a 2 week tramadol wean, and then stayed sober a few weeks using nothing at all.
And those few weeks were the most miserable of my life, suffered from crippling depression and anxiety, total lack of ability to experience pleasure, just wake up and cry sometimes for no reason at all. And the normal uplifting stuff that I enjoy, like meditation, exercise, etc., were of no real help.
So then I tried kratom for some relief but decided that for me it's a bad idea (it worked but don't wanna become dependent on it).
So anyways, is what I'm experiencing "paws"? And is there any proven stuff that I can do to make it go away? Any supplements that definitely help...quickly?
This is so defeating and scary because I've read that paws can last for years, I don't know what to do. And I'm somewhat isolated because I'm single and don't have any more friends (have abandoned them because they are all on drugs, etc.). And I'm uninsured so suboxone is out of the question for me right now.
Because of the mental anguish I caved and returned to using pills for like the last 5 days but tomorrow I'm going full abstinence again, so any suggestions and/or thoughts from those whom have experienced this would be greatly appreciated.
