    Hi

    I am currently on day 3 of cold turkey wd. For a little over a year I have been using around 150mg of oxycodone a day. For several reasons I am trying to go through this and have the worst feeling of anxiety. I’m not really sure what to do but I certainly can’t continue on like this without losing my job and my fiancée. I have kept this problem to myself and have no support system in place and am not ready to discuss this problem with my future wife.

    A little background, addiction runs in my family. I have many immediate family members that are alcoholics and have fought crack-cocaine addictions for the past 25 years. I also am a functioning alcoholic, if there is such a thing, but I make it to work everyday now, that is until the last couples days.

    Well I need some advice. After lurking in the background on these forums, I’ve decided that a doctors help may be the best bet for me to deal with this anxiety. I have a few problems though. I recently moved to a new town and don’t have a primary care physician that I really feel comfortable talking to about this. I have good insurance but I’m not so sure how a brand new doctor would take seeing me for the first time with this type of problem.

    The symptoms I’m experiencing are pretty much the same as everyone here, hot then cold, very achey, mind racing, and racing to the toilet what seems like every 20 minutes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have to get back to work and need something to make it possible, because if I show up in this state I won’t have a job for much longer. Thanks in advance for the input…
