Detox delirium

Getting off pain meds is difficult on many levels. After exhausting many pain relieving options, I finally found one where I could function.  It didn’t take the pain away, but it was a veil that enabled me to live. Unfortunately, insurance wouldn’t cover the one med I could tolerate, so I decided to wean off. Also, since people and Doctors  are so quick to dismiss someone on an opiate, as a drug addict, I decided to wean off before I’m forcibly taken off, as many pain patients are. 

I’m day 3 of being completely off the med. My usual pains are excruciating as well as increased muscle cramps, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, and over all misery. I apologize in advance if anyone comes in the wrath of Robin.
