Not good

This is weird.  I am so sick right now.  I just had really severe stomach cramps for about 30 minutes, broke out in a cold soaking sweat, had pins and needles in my feet and hands.  Then the lower problems.  I am in bed now but feel really nausesated and still have some cramps.  This is day 9.  WTH.

It ***** that you are sick. I am at work with some similar symptoms so I guess we aren't done yet. I was strong and had nothing to do with that guy here at work today. He is out in the field the rest of the day so I am safe, Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks, I am so glad I am at home.  I feel so weak right now.  I don't know what brought that on.  Maybe I have a slow system.
I don't know how you are working but you are my hero.

Oh, Pat, I am so sorry you're sick. Take some Immodium and get comfy. I hope you feel better soon.

Glad you avoided that guy, ribs. I hope you feel better soon too.

Hi, are you drinking enough fluids?  I had that happen to me too, a couple of times and after I drank a ton of water & gatorade, it went away.  Also, I don't remember if you were taking any benzos or not, but those symptoms also started happening to me when I started taking less and less of it.  Hang it there, you are still doing awesome.

I have been drinking a ton of gatorade.  I did have some coke for the first time yesterday.  Coca cola, I mean.  I haven't had any benzo's.  I have taken immodium, benadryl, tylenol, gravol, vitamins over the last 9 days.  Not alot of anything but the vitamins.  I am wondering if the immodium just delayed everything so I am kind of scared to take it now.  It was really scary.  I thought I was going to pass out from the pain.

I had quite a bit to eat this morning too.  I was hungry so maybe I ate too much.

You may have the flu also as that is going around.  Our immune system takes a beating for a bit after we stop the pills.  Hope you feel better~

lol, I knew you meant coca-cola. :)  Maybe you are right about the immodium, that's a good point.

haha, I just wanted to make sure.  Well I sure don't have any cravings for a pill right now.  I thought I was getting off easy with this part of it but I really think the immodium just delayed the inevitable.  I had a bad bout one day but didn't have cramps like this.  That was brutal but I think the worst is over.  Maybe I shouldn't say that, I will jinx myself.

Thanks everyone for replying so quickly, I hesitated posting all my gory details but I was really scared.

You should continue to take the Immodium.  I had to take it for over 2 weeks and sometimes had to take more than required.  I would suggest that.  Also, when you feel up to it, eat some saltine crackers.  Nothing too heavy right now.  Maybe some chicken broth. Feel better!
Blank
2107676_tn?1388977459
Thanks, I did take one.  Imagine being afraid of taking a pill.  I was just thinking it was slowing down my system but what do I know.  
I dont want to go thru that again.  Here's hoping.

Thanks Oz,
I am feeling much better.  I was really hungry this morning and ate more than I have in quite awhile.  Maybe that's why but it was brutal.  I am glad I didn't have that earlier in this process when my anxiety was bad.  It sure took any craving I had for a pill away.  Just a little friendly reminder hahahah.

Pat, glad you're feeling a bit better now. It is a good sign that you woke up hungry. I think your body is arguing with itself right now! ;)

I think it was kicking the h e l l out of itself.  It seems to be getting along right now.  I have to be nicer to my body so it will be nice to me.  :(

True, and you are being nicer to it. Soon the appetite part will win the battle with the get-it-out part ;)

Sorry you got hit with a backhand punch, but it does happen. Sarah is right...we do always need to consider whether we may pick up a real bug in the midst of detox. Renewal has mostly good days, but the occasional backhand comes along. Hopefully you will continue to feel better. You are an inspiration to me. I am taking my last pills Sunday. I am going to sequester myself from my family at our lake house for the first couple of days. For one thing, I want to be able to ramble around and walk, swim, whatever, WHENEVER I want and not worry about worrying my folks. The plan may falter because we don't have internet out there and my phone is so darn slow I don't mess with it. But at least it is a plan. Got paychecks early so can supply up. Nervous, but I am already very nervous 4 hours a night so why not just deal. Peace and good health to you. -Randy

Yes freetoagoodhome, that is a great way to put it.  It felt like when I had food poisoning but the devil leaving is what it was.
Randy, you have a great plan.  I will be thinking of you and I know what you mean about being nervous.  I was so scared and I didn't have alot of faith in myself but I finally did it. Please keep in touch as soon as you can.
Good luck.

awww thanks Jenn, I am feeling better and got about 4 hours of sleep.  I know what you mean.  I would read about people saying they were on a certain day and think I was never going to get there.  Here I am about to take on day 10.  You will be too, before you know it.  Stay strong hun, it will get better soon.
