Teri - GREAT job!  You are coming along just fine!  As for the electricity - YES - I do get it even now at 63 days I had some last night.  Not near what I had in the beginning but I do still experience it here and there.  It is awful but I hope the time spans just continue to get further and further as they have.  Keep it up!

Hi Teri,

TEN DAYS!!!  You are doing awesome girl.  Yes, unfortunately the electricity thing is normal-it will get better like everything else..WIth time...(:  It's your CNS reacting after being suppressed by the methadone.  You are going to feel A LOT of things that seem strange, but your body is working hard to heal so try to see them as a GOOD thing.  I'm proud of you lady, keep moving forward and be gentle and loving with yourself.

HI Teri never got the electric myself but herd of pleanty of people who have its the nuro receptors coming back on line from what others have told me it subsides with time sleep will come I promise you but it can take a wile try for cat naps here and there rather then a night of sleep just get a blanket rool up on the couch and watch some mindless tv till your tired if you even get tired some times just laying with your eyes closed and some soft music playing will be the closest thing to sleep you get good luck and God bless.....BTW your doing great your friend Mark
