I need help for my best friend. She has sleep depravation from methadone use for pain. She sleepwalks and does unusual things during that time. She clucks and makes sounds and is unaware of what shes doing. She does have a number of pain disorders that cause her severe extreme pain and the only pain reliever her Doctor gives her is Methadone. I need help because shes coming to stay with me for a while while I help her find a place to live. She is on SSI Calif. Thank you.

This is my first entry and first time joining a support group for this specific issue. I would love to read and talk with people going through the same exact problems I have and am going through. I got pancreatitis a little over 4 years ago do to severe alcoholism and prescription drug abuse. Sence it started I ended up having numerous endoscopic sergurys to expand my liver duct that had closed up. I stayed sober from alcohol for 8 months then fell off. I then developed chronic pancreatitis. They removed a sudo syst from my pancreas, first big surgery, stoped drinking again for a couple months. All along I was strongly advised to never touch a drink again or it would be a for certain, painful death. Personally I have no idea how I or anyone survive the acual pancreatitis Attack. You can't explain that kind of pain. So after those couple months, fell off wagon And started working for a friend (tree service company) HARD work. I was advised to lift no more then 40 lbs. All along I was also still abusing prescription drugs but for legitimate pain now. I found that methadone worked the best and lasted all day and then some and I didn't need to much of it 40mg. Life was not good with all the ups and down, so I joined the methadone clinic. Saved my life as far as I was concerned. Spent a year And half going there, all along drinking heavily ( a fith to half gallon every day ) it took away the severe pain that still existed while inducing it at the sIm time. Severe depression got worse and worse. I developed 2 bilateral hernias and needed another surgery requiring being cut open again from sturnam to below the bellybutton. I came down off the methadone appropriately and sent to a rehab. Left rehab with good intentions of never drinking again but I was still an advocate for the methadone treatment for pain and maintenance. Shortly out of rehab, started popping pills here and there for the severe pain. That went south fast because I had to scrounge for money, I only hAd one connection still, so I ended up using dope for 3 months. It was cheaper and the only thing g around. I finally set up for my 2nd surgery. Could not find a doctor to give me meds for at least a few months as I healed. Pissed off, I picked up the bottle after 6 months on wAgon. Got surgery. Doc took good care of me with methadone and perks for a little over a month. I begged him to connect me with a pain doc that would give me methadone. With lots of prayer from me and my family" yes I am a Christian and believe Jesus/father God" ...I got a doc. She took me in for 2 years on 30 MGS of methadone. I drank the entire time unbeknownst to her. That finally ended. Lots of other issues happens. Diabetes/ severe nerve damage. I could bearly walk, ready to die...Wanted to die but still feared death because of my life style. I finally put the bottle down again and went back to methadone clinic. I feel OK mentally , I'm sure I won't drink again but I'm on a much larger dose of mdone,130mg. My pancreas is beat to hell and I can't be opened up again allong with so MANY other things...Kind of just getting by. I was recently introduced to Adderall. I absolutely have a love hate relationship with it. Some how it took away 70% of my pain in my feet and I could walk normal again😃, I have begun being very productive in all areas, excercise, acodemic focus and more. The🙁 side.. I'm very anxious, pissy, worried and well focused but only on one thing at a time. I hope someone will read this very long support group message and can connect with me. I'm concerned about my -4 years+of organ damage from methadone and what the Adderall may be doing as well, but I neeeeeeed to be happy again. I deserve to die that way, if it be.
