Update from a rare visitor these days
Hello all

Just wanted to make a small update on my situation so no one worries about me falling into a hole of any kind :o)

At day 53 of my "Tramadol get the hell away from me" period. I am almost back to normal, whatever that entails, and life is beginning to shape up. I would say that I am at 90-95% and the last 5-10 % isn't neccesarily due to the trams...

The support from my MH friends has been invaluable and I am pretty sure that if MH didn't excist many addict would fall through the cracks...

The biggest issues I am dealing with at the moment must be my new lifestyle... I have never been very social or outgoing.. I dont have a social network as such because work has provided me with all the socialization I need.. and I havenever had any real hobbies that could hold my attention for longer periods.. This all changed when I stopped Trams... I began trainig 3-5 times a week which gives me great boost in energy and wellness.. I am in a serious relationship for the first time in a long period so that presents many new daily activities... and I am trying to expand my social network... all in all there are many changes and I often get the feeling that "WOW" this is bizarre or weird - miss the comfort of the safe old life - allthough that life no longer offers me those things...

This week I am away with work on a teambuilding experience at an estate way way out in the country side so that is why I am not that active in spreading the joy and humor as I usually do - but I AM checking in from time to time to read...

be well all..
