ive been taken 30/500 for around a year now and when i dont take them i dont get as bad as some of you,but i do get withdrawals,kinda like having the flu. its better after a day and a half.
i taken 4 tabs every six hours,so i dont eat that much cause i want the effect and ive read you should take them on emty stomach lol. i think ill try and go down to just 4 tabs aday. i did notice that when i only took 4 a day that i had more energy and felt better. then hopefully totally stop taken them.
ive notice that sometimes in my stool there is blood and im constipated,but those are the only side effects ive had so far.
think id be better if i do the cold water extraction? that way i wont have the paracetamal only codein water
I stopped getting high whatsoever and took 400mg+ (two boxes of 32 8mg pills) just to feel normal.
It becomes a real chore driving around pharmacies as well as making up stories - it feels wrong defrauding these people too.
I'm on day 4 now and I'm still sick, I can't eat solids, I'm nauseous (haven't been sick yet though!), still ache, nothing is fun, it's just generally a miserable time.
Going to try and eat something! hope it gets better
I am glad I have the week off as I couldn't go to work in my state, though it is very lonely in my house.
I dunno if the OP will be back as it's been 8 years! but I hope she and her son are doing well :-) he must be in secondary school by now
It makes me feel better in an absurd way that the OP's posts aren't from so long in the past they're her distant memory
hope she's not back on the pills
they've done me no good, I'm 22 and otherwise healthy, instead I'm a pale, frail, sickly looking guy, can barely move around my house.
I've just had enough.
Trouble is I can see myself thinking "just one for tonight" in a week or two's time (when I will be recovered and not needing them!) and in a month or two I will be back here posting the same stuff...
dunno where I got 8 years from as it's only been a few months!
22 years old and I am a sickly mess, I want to get over the physical symptoms before I can get emotionally better
going to try and get some food in me and go see my friends later today, it's the best thing to do, better than staying in my house!
I had a longer reply typed up but it wasn't saved
well I spent most of yesterday over a friends house and it was great, watched a few films and made the time pass by great. After I got home I felt great and even managed to eat a small bowl of cereals.
I fell to sleep easily but again have woken up feeling miserable, everything is back as it was. I've woken up too early and have nothing to do! alone in my house. I miss my Mother and she left the house only an hour ago :/
I'm kept going by the fact I feel better than yesterday morning - only mildly so. Can't believe it's supposed to be over in 7 days. I really can't see myself being 100% in two days but I hope so! I want to go foodshopping with my mother then (it's sad when that is one of the highlights of my life, but that is what this does to me.. I never valued my family before this)
Now I feel sick again, I'm going to find it a challenge to eat. Going to clean up a bit, and go down the shops, just to leave my house.
Aches are gone, runny nose is gone, diahorreah still continues. (maybe because of my diet, consisting mostly of water...)
Biggest problems are nausea, restlessness, and the feeling still of my stomach being in my chest. Oh and being very easy to upset isn't great either...
can't wait to be back to my old self. Reading the other threads I feel sorry for those on much stronger opiates. This has left a bad taste in my mouth I hope a cheap codeine buzz can't get rid of again.
i'm on day 6 now
still feeling miserable but I must admit much better than on day 4
I won't continue as it's just a rehash of what Perfect-Angel has said, but I find writing about it strangely therapeutic.
It's going to take me a few more days to get over this properly - it's Tuesday now, I think I'll be ok by Friday or Saturday.
so there is a light at the end of it all, it seems, or at least, I hope. All in all, it was boredom that lured me to these tablets. just ain't worth it though.
As far as I'm concerned if blogging to this site helps you...go for it!
Do whatever you need to keep clean. Keep up the good work!
been a week and i'm definitely not fixed yet
I still can't eat a full meal even, but it's getting better. yesterday I had some scrambled eggs and nearly finished it.
It's much worse in the mornings than in the nights
I'm starting to feel calmer slowly... very slowly
keeping your mind off it is hard when nothing you do is fun,- i still can't find enjoyment in anything, especially when I'm on my own
it's the price I pay for messing with them, really
Still feeling very run down though (not cold like) and negative about everything, which is NOT me!!
On a positive note, I managed a couple of beers last night and 5 hours sleep so things must be looking up.
