It took me a good month to start feeling “ok” and not hating every morning I woke up, if I got any sleep that is. I had to go back to work after two weeks and it was the hardest part after the first 72hrs. The first week I was puking and in the bathroom constantly. I lost 25lbs (which is a lot when I only weighed 130 to start). After the first week I was finally able to keep bland foods down in small amounts. I wasn’t sleeping without melatonin or Tylenol pm but even then it was for 3-4hrs at most but I still spent all day in bed miserable. Getting myself to work the 3rd and 4th weeks was extremely difficult mentally and physically. I was still doing the temperature fluctuations so I was constantly freezing but somehow sweating at the same time. Everything in my body still hurt and ached, and mentally it was all I could do to just get through the day without making a call to get a bag or some pills. I’m 96 days clean from heroin and pills and it took a while, it really took a good 4-6weeks before I was able to function in an almost regular manner. I still have hard days, I randomly can’t sleep, I get random temperature hits, it’s by no means easy, but I can go days without thinking about needing the drugs, and I don’t wake up every morning with the drugs as my first thought. Power through because life without the drugs is fucking worth the struggle of kicking it.
