7+ months off Subutex

Jul 07, 2014 - 11 comments

I finally, finally feel like me again. The last couple of weeks have been fantastic. I havent cooked dinner in about a year for my family because my partner has. Now i have cooked many nights the last weeks. Im so happy and my energy and motivation has been such a blessing. Im doing everything a mother and partner should be for her family. So my turning point for 100% energy and motivation was at the end of my 6 months clean. I am so back to normal and functioning daily. And while on an efexor taper, i put myself down to 37.5mg 3 days ago from 225mg about 2 weeks ago or so. This has been a great decision. I am truely healed from the paws, anxiety, sluggishness, fatigue etc  and im even missing out on my nanna nap in the arvo. Thankfully im free and so glad its finally all over. No more pain or stress or worry. Im even taking my kids out again which i couldnt be bothered before. Im very, very happy.

Wow, wow ...& just wow, Amanda!!

You sound brilliant! It's literally thrilling to read something like this. We've all (or at least for the most part) been through so many heart & body-wrenching struggles. I'm celebrating your success today. Thanks for bathing us in the rays of your 'sun'. Joy has a way of cascading outwards in a domino effect. Shine on! :))

That is so wonderful. This entry made me think of each time I said, "I finally made it, I have healed all the way." People kept saying it keeps getting better and I didn't even care, it was good enough. Well, I can say now that it keeps getting better. I stopped saying that this is as good as it gets, I am open to miracles. I am so happy you have found your peace, hold onto it with your dear life, and never stop growing.

Yay Amanda.  Girl I am so proud of you.  May the healing continue and life be beautiful for many many years to come.  I know we don't know each other in real life- but I feel such a kindred spirit in you.  I know that you are a strong and compassionate woman who deserves all the beauty and joy that life has to offer.  I am beyond proud of you.

Love you my friend
