  repeated oral Methadone (pill / tablet)


I was helping my mother's friend who was dying of ovarian cancer. It was one of the most emotional things in my life. Later when I was alone with her, I said under my breath that I had a killer headache and she told me to grab her purse and take out the pill bottle inside. I told her that it was methadone and she told me to just take it. The next day I left for a band trip and took the bottle of well over 100 pills with me. I first ate only one. I enjoyed the high for a while and then fell asleep. When I awoke, my head was aching and my stomach hurt in a way I couldn't imagine. I did this similar therapy during the next few days until the night before I was going to record a demo with my band. I ate three which was just flatout a bad call. I was extremely high and numb and then blacked out. The next morning was hell. My head felt like it had literally been run over and I was constantly throwing up. Even between recording sessions, I was vomiting all of the contents in my stomach.
