A humbling pattern starts to emerge It cripples success and stifles my urge When the end of a project is finally near Instead of triumph, I'm dealing with fear It's not that I think the project is crap It just that I can't quite call it a wrap The reason, my friend, in case you have missed I'm seeking perfection which doesn't exist The inner critic has decided to show His moment has come to deliver a blow He does it so well, he knows what to say To get me to freeze, to keep me at bay He makes me feel crappy for all I have done "It's shit," he says, and takes all the fun The fear is nameless, unjustified terror It makes me believe it all was an error So instead of deciding which tasks are at hand I work on a different project I planned I'm good at beginning and starting the work When it comes to completing, I'm just a big joke I'm writing this now at the end of my rope I'm out of excuses, but wait -- there is hope By quitting this project, I'm surely to sob Might as well do it, and finish the job I can't really fail by completing the climb So quitting is not an option this time I've decided I'll do it, I'll go the whole way No matter the critic, I'm launching...

I survived withdrawal, but it was the worst thing I've been through in my life (and that includes being hit by a van). And to be clear, it could have, and should have, gone better for me, if the medical system were better set up for managing long-term opioid use.
