Did I say PAIN??????

Yeah - I'm talking about the REAL deal - REAL pain. My Pain Management doctor told me last week she didn't think I would be able to get off of the medication because of the pain but she wrote out a plan for me to follow over a period of 30 days in 5 day increments. She stressed that I shouldn't beat myself up if I don't succeed as she went over what some of the side affects will be as I come off. I've already experience several of them since cutting the dosage in half. I hope it will not get too much worse but I'm trying to be prepared in case it does. I am in phase one of 1 ml less every 9 hours for five days. Amazing what that last hour feels like. I thought going 8 hours was hard. All prayers are still very welcome. Another good thing is after I am completely narcotic free, we will do another sleep study before deciding I need a CPAP.  Hope springs eternal.....


  1. I'm so sorry! Wish I could relieve your pain

    1. Thank you so much sweetie. I'm working hard every day to succeed and it has been a real struggle so far but still hoping it improves in time.
