Everyday gets better, slowly, but better.  Hang in there.  I'm day 7 after one and half years of Sub.  I'm pretty miserable still but feel like I'm coming out the other side.  God Bless.

wasnt too bad... still i am spending alot of time in the bathroom.. :( but, am catching up on some reading..

funny, this is the second time in several years i jumped off. i am a chronic pain patient.
i did not like what the opiates were doing to me.. tolerance, personality..

i was reading about hurricane katrina and the horror stories of folks prescribed opiates that suffered during that time.. it was like 100,000 people in withdrawals. they thought they had an outbreak at the dome but it was withdrawals in most folk.

being a slave to anything is bad. (but starts out great dont it) its comforting to know we are not alone as these boards show..

Hey BFrankie,

Glad to hear the preach went OK.  Worshipping the porcelein is not a bad thing, you catch up on reading and it's your bodys way of getting bad stuff outta ya......

This is not my first rodeo either.  Why do we continue to repeat this once we're done?  DUH.

I am happy to hear you are feeling slightly better...Thats awesome. The sleep thing is a bummer I know..seems like one of the last things to come back, I still have trouble with sleep. It all just takes some time.
  Hope you have a great day! Congrats on 12 days, Yay.

Hey Brotha,

Glad to hear you're doing better.  Moving around, gettin' stuff done and distraction in general is a good thing.  Congrats on 12 days, I'm now @ 14 days(?).

You ain't normal yet however.  A few (?) more days and aches and sleep may be normal.  Keep up what you're doin', Preach this weekend and pray.  It'll do ya good!  Keep the faith!

I have ridden bikes for 38 years now.  Harley's for 27 yrs. of that time.  I was clean shaven for years until I took a 2.5 week cross country trip and grew my goat back.  I was shocked that it's white.  I still wear it.  I guess it's my Freak Flag......HA

Hey Brotha,

Just checking in you.  I hope that you're out of the woods by now.  Day 26 here.  Much better but still a bit fragile.  Give us holla.  WM
