This is the first day of the rest of your life.. You can do this.. I wasn't able to taper, i had to do it the hard way and go c/t.. Keep your mind positive, and tell yourself over and over again things will get better. I'll be praying for you today. hope you have a great day at work, even in your situation. Good luck!
I think you will have a pretty decent day. Any wd you have should be pretty minimal and most likely wont start for another 12 to 24 hrs due to methadones half life. Have a great day! Wishing ylu much success in your new life.
I am so proud of you girl. I have no doubt you can and will get through this. I know it in my heart. You've done great dealing with the taper so I know you can finish it off. If you need anything, let me know!!!
Oh girlfriend you will do it!!! Hey I guess u did figure out the pic thing I like it....I waited a bit after we PM 'd but I went to bed. So i guess you did good.
Now we will go figure the name..Envolver called me this so I used it instead of moose-lips Ha! thats my nick name here...Just keep up that shineing white bright smile and give a wink at your D boss...Ha! lol.
You should be proud!! Keep it up girl, you got this.. And i hated the sneezing part.. I would literally sneeze like 10 times in a row.. ugh but keep us posted on your progress. We're all here cheering for you.
Seriously overwhelmed by all the support of you guys. Thank u all sooooo much!!
I did ok at work. Sneezed and had stuffy nose all day long. But I can handle that. It's the sleeping I will need to attack if I start loosing too much of it. Lol
I will defeat this ugly a$$ monster that's been knocking on my door. Once and FoR All!!
(tears) thank u all for cheering me on. Please dont stop w the kind words im sure I will be hanging tight to this forum for a while
So funny. All my co workers just think I have a cold or something. I guess u could call it that. Lol.
One really awesome thing to report is...... I haven't laughed this much in a LONG time. It was better than any freaking pill. Despite all the sneezing and decibgestion. The laughing I amazing!!!! I can't believe how empty I was. And didn't even realize it.
You CAN do this . . . the sleep thing is so common (or lack thereof shall I say?). But it WILL return. Now the sneezing . . . IDK, over 3 months clean and still sneeze every day! Not nearly as bad as early WD, but weird. And it is ALWAYS 3 times!
It been 30 hours since my last dose!! Lol. Relaxing. Feel fine. And I won't fight sleep tonight. I will go w the flow. Since I dont wk the next few days. Not as worried about getting my beauty rest. ;)
Lets do this!!!!!! Yeah!!
congrats !! so happy for you that you took the jump. time will be your healer.
keep yourself hydrated, prayed up, busy, exercise, lots of protein, fruits and veggies.
how is your husband doing? will he still have methadone in the house?
you are doing awesome!!!
Thanks debbie. Yes it will be in the house. But not in my reach. I told him to not give me any even if I beg him to. Hopefully he doesn't cave. I usually get my way w him. Lol
But I don't want to this time. I want to succeed. He said I'm paving the way. I think he's on 20 mg a day.
Thanks so much for the support;) I'm actually fine right now. I know God will carry me through. Yes I'm keeping very busy. No other option but to be busy w a job, 2 kids and a hubby to take care of. Ev one needs momma. Oh geez. Lol. All is well. I will not get worked up expecting horrible things to come. I can't do that.
I have to do this one day at a time. And today I did it.
Strange thing is..... I sneezed and was stuffy nosed all day long at work today and last few days. But I actually am cleared up now. No sneezing for the moment. Yay;)
No complaints here. I'm sure at this stage in game things will change by the minute. Lol.
I hate Rollercoasters. But I will ride this one out like I love them. Yippee;). Ha
I most certainly believe!! You have not bc you ask not.
I love that scripture!!!! He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a SOUND MIND!! Praise God.
Hub comes sometimes. Here lately I've missed the it a few times bc too tired from tapering. But I will get back on track. God is my stregnth!! He is everything to me.
Have u seen the BIBLE series on history channel. Wow!!! Just started a series on whole bible 2 weeks ago. It comes on sun around 7. You would love it. So powerful and amazing the words and the stories to be played out for us. In awe.
Hi girlfriend I like the way you post your thread..It sounds so up lifting..The snezz thing was soo long ago I can not remember it to well in my healing addictive brain Ha!
EVERY PAST DEFEAT GOD WILL TURN INTO A PRESENT VICTORY...
I still sneeze 3-4 times in a row at least twice a day! And I'll have 11 weeks Sunday! Lol. I NEVER used to sneeze...actually thought it was funny when I did sneeze...now....well it's still kinda funny when I sneeze, but it can go away anytime! But ya know, if that's the "lasting" symptom that I have, I'll take that over the RLS anyday!
And hey, I had seen so much here about the Rhodiola that I finally had to get some yesterday. It does help with energy! You might try it if you aren't already! :) Have a great day sunshine:):):)
That's great you are taking the Rhodiola. I think next time I'm going to get it online...after looking on Amazon, I realized I paid waaay to much at the health food store in town. Lol. Go figure.
I did have days where I didn't sneeze as much, but I still sneezed. Lol. If I did get any sleep at night, I would literally wake up having to sneeze, then have to try to fall back to sleep. It was frustrating. Lol. Maybe you won't have much of that. And one day at a time is a great way to approach this. If you try to look too far ahead, it seems time really slows down and the days get long. So proud of you! You're handling this like a champ!
