Hi needing!   I was wondering about you this morning.  How funny that you posted for help!  :)    

Yes, definitely take the Immodium now.   You know what to expect since you have been reading and posting.    Look at it like this;   You gotta be ok with not being ok for a few days.   Surrender to the process of detox and it will make it much easier.   Post often and ask for help or support!   You CAN do this.  Look how far you have come in the past month.

Yes.  It will help a little, just hunker down and keep reminding yourself your going to have a bad flu for a few days.  Get detoxed, and we can start talking about getting your brain healed up.  Hang in there and keep posting.

Hang in there my friend, I'm going thru the same pain.. This site is amazing with the support you get from complete strangers.  Immodium is a godsend, and all together the Thomas recipe helped me a ton in my previous attempts to quit.  Gatorade is also a must in my opinion, as your body will be extremely dehydrated.  The lack of sleep is the hardest part for me, Melatonin will help some, as well as the hot baths with epsom salts as toothfairie mentioned.  I will be rooting for you, and you can do it!  Good luck

YOU CAN DO IT.  The craziness of counting down until the pills are out prior to the next prescription refill is maddening. The actual WD days are much better then those days leading up to it. Like many said, just pretend you have the flu and ate too much refried beans. :-)  On the serious side, eat the following to help with the diarrhea... banana's, yogurt, and apple sauce... anything that is low in fiber content. STAY AWAY from Ice Cream, Milk, Cottage Cheese and greasy foods... probably want to avoid broccoli and cabbage too! Drink water/tea. Heater blanket really works well. YouTube keeps your mind busy. Want to fall asleep FAST?  Read Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus book. It is terrible and you'll never make it past the tenth page without either falling asleep or wondering how the book ever got published. We ALL wish you luck and the best 2013... you're off to a great start. Hang in there!

Hey bro.  I was also wondering about you.
Some say the more imodium they take the easier the wd's are.
I cannot say myself.
Just remember that in a short while you will feel better.
It will get tougher before it gets better. But i know you are strong and will get through this.
Oh you will feel so much better, my friend. I'm day 26 today and i almost feel normal again.  
I still have my days but the good one's outweigh the bad.
I'm glad you posted, and I'm happy you are taking this head on.
God speed my friend.
