Holy shit, I’m sorry man. Take it from me, it’s easy to turn such a negative experience and just dive head first into more negative thoughts and behaviors, but these things can also work the opposite way - use the pain to improve yourself rather than as an excuse to sink deeper down.

It sounds to me like that’s exactly what you’re doing. You got this, man. Stay strong.

Be strong, Possessed. We’re all with you, sending as much positive energy we possibly can. Things will get better.

I believe you’re making the right decision, too. Fight on, and show the world you got this. I hope things get better.

This is so ****** I can’t even get any place to take me the hospital wouldn’t do the detox after keeping me for 5 hours they sent me away none of the other detox places that I’ve found will take me either because they don’t take our insurance or “my symptoms aren’t bad enough”. Like wut I can’t help that I’m tough lol I still don’t feel safe I feel like I could explode I can’t help that that I’m not vomiting all over the walls or shaking so bad i can’t walk. My blood pressure was higher than charlie sheen on an average Tuesday I feel like that should be cause enough it was in the danger zone. Every other place wants to lock me up for like a month and I really hope it doesn’t come to that that’s extreme. But i guess if it has to it has to.

Weird seems like some place should take you. Maybe contact your insurance company and ask them where you’d be covered?

I’m just going to try and go through it at home. I’m already about 36 hours in and from what im given to understand that’s about the halfway point. I obviously don’t feel good but it feels manageable. My body is sore and I’m nervous and just slightly nauseous but that’s about it. I’m not really getting tremors or anything like that, which is surprising but I didn’t last time either. Maybe I’m just lucky and my body doesn’t get super hooked on the stuff and it’s just my mind. My blood and urine tests all came back great. They said I was actually very healthy, I was like you better check again lol. Even my liver came back good. I wanted to be admitted to the hospital for safety reasons but they wouldn’t they said I didn’t need it. I hope they are right.

Please be careful. The biggest risk is seizures. If the symptoms get worse, go back to the hospital. Hang in there, my friend!

I’m not really having any symptoms now. I believe smoking pot has drastically eased withdrawals, and the internet seems to agree with me on that. I’m still not going back to work until Tuesday just to be safe though because my blood pressure was still quite high last time it was taken two days ago and I want to make totally sure my system is back to normal when i go back as my job is quite stressful.

I’m so overwhelmed with life I seriously feel like I can’t bear it. I so badly want to shut it off but I can’t. I can’t relax. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. I can’t shut the thoughts off.

I’m 11 days without alcohol still but that isn’t even the problem. I don’t feel cravings or temptations to drink at all. It wouldn’t make me feel any better, my problems are with real life and it’s almost too much to bear. I’m sure the recent quitting of alcohol is making me feel overall worse since actually feeling so much is new but I don’t even care I don’t need a drink, I need my life back. I don’t want to keep living with this pain.
