Withdrawal & Detox of OTC Sleeping Aids
I am sick. And it freaking sucks. Actually my sickness is self inflicted and I had no clue. So I overdosed on accident. For about 2 months I have been taking 150mg of sleeping aids every night. Some nights even more. Yeah I know, stupid. I thought I was smart enough to believe Wikipedia and I would be fine, but…… I was wrong. It finally caught up to me. Last week, I noticed that there was a lot of blood in my urine so I thought, ‘fuck I am getting kidney stones again.’ Well… it was actually my kidneys starting to fail. I found this out last night at the ER. I was also extremely dehydrated because the sleep aids which are OTC also increase the amount of water your system must intake. So I have been extremely dehydrated. Since I had this past week off of work, it was about 2x as bad. One more night of taking those things and I could of been dead. I got really lucky. I thought I could take an increased amount because of my body developing a natural immunity. Now I am detoxing my body with as much water as possible hoping that my body will kick back into shape.
Oh yeah, I also was told that pot could of been a good thing because it constantly increases my appetite and want for liquids. So thanks to smoking everyday, I am alive for just another. Fuckyeahcannabis. Time to roll a joint.
