Lost my pain patch last night while I was sleeping. I swear, I can put 20 lbs of surgical tape on these things and they just fall off. So, woke up this morning in the beginnings of a full-blown withdrawal. Anyone who has gone through medical withdrawal knows it’s not very fun.
With me, I start with the cold sweats and chills. I can’t get warm, and I can’t stop sweating. My feet feel like blocks of ice, but I can’t put socks on because they are sweating so much that my socks get damp in minutes then it’s worse. My entire body feels “fluttery”, like a leaf in a breeze. I’m shaking and my brain is muddled. I know I slept, but not very well. I remember waking up several times just so cold my teeth were chattering, but I changed twice cause I was soaked.
I’m off now to get something to eat and to take a nap. A bad night wears me out more than a bad day does, every time.
