Suzi,  You re "weomce' for the note.  You arer worth it you know?  I have been spending a lot of time with my 86 year old mom as well.  Doctor appointments, shopping, squaring away the mistakes she has started making (like loosing all of her medical and social security cards!).  

You played an important part in my battle with the trams.  I simply had to reach out and say hello.

You are GREAT.  You are GREAT.  You are great!!!   fred

Suzi,  It's been a while since I have seen you post, but I wanted to say that I think of you and how you are doing every once in a while.  Here's hoping that your nursing career is going well and that things in your world are alright.  fred

Suzi,  hellooo old friend.  I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you were doing...but, I didn't ever go back and find your icon in a previous thread...sorry.  

Hope all is well with you Suzi.  I plan to take a peek at the "big board" , maybe you updated things there?  My wife and I are heading out of town for a week, so I will be out of touch with everyone until May 1.  Really good hearing from you Suzi.  Fred

Hi Suzi, glad Im not the only one to go AWOL now and then! Like you I sometimes have doubts about if/when to post, depending on whats going on in my life/head at the time. 'Closed lips trap no flies' as the saying goes!! Wishing you a fullfilling transition..((HUGS)) kev.

Just a quick note to say hi! Taking it one day at a time is what we have to do. Some days I have to take it hour and even a minute at a time. You know it works. We can make it. With friends offering strength we can make it. Take care.

Hi Suzie, I see you got the crying jag. I had this for a few days and it was mostly sad/grief type feelings. They were so easily triggered too. It seems to be part of the healing process ,maybe these are the feelings we should have had for ourselves, instead of using meds to banish them.Hope you feel better soon. All the best,Kev.

suzi,  i am focusing my energy on this diet which is helping me cope with the different anxieties.  before this i just microwaved!!    it is a candida diet , has a web site with a ton of support so it keeps me motivated to do it.   i did the "spit test" and found i have candida (which btw , can be made worse by meds ) .  so i am constantly boiling broths on the stove.  a lot of work .  no sugar,  but a ton of "good fats".   my stomach is fine now, and my sinus went away immediately... anyway, it gives me a feeling i am doing something positive for myself.  my eating is under control now too.  still v. low energy.  how about you?  school okay?  thank you for writing,  i am glad to be in touch with someone who "knows" me!

Hi Suzi, sorry to hear about your cravings/temptations. I have a friend who is using codeine meds for pain and I sometimes scrounge a few of his leftovers to use as sleeping pills. I used a few during Tram w/d and I can see how easy it is....
Im sending you some willpower but as I only possess about 1/2 an ounce of it dont expect a huge difference ok?!
Hang in mate, and if you cant say no,try and go a day without, keep it minimal,any resistance is better than no resistance.
Rooting for ((you)).

Hi Suzi, all is ok with me, only fleeting,minimal symptoms the last week or so. Im busy raising cash to get a car on the road. I have been reading the posts a bit, too much to take in tho..long posts,new people and some incredible stories.
I'll still be sticking around until I'm at least 70 days free tho, I'm not about to under-estimate the enemy!
Hows school going? Not wearing you out I hope!  Good luck in this new chapter of your life,all the best,Kev.

Hi Suzi- thanks for your support recently,it meant a lot. You seem to be having very prolonged symptoms,especially the emotionals.I hope they end soon for you. Ive stopped posting on the main board now as I just cant keep up with whats going on there,Im now officially a 'lurker' lol. I'll be keeping in touch with my friends here though as well as reading the posts still.
Keep up the fight,Im rooting for you!

Suzi, I'm doing OK.  I'm at work ... with tasks coming in - in fits and starts.  Just had someone looking over my shoulder (3:15 pm EST) at something he needed help with, so I couldn't respond.  

He is coming back in a couple, so I have to run.

Bless you for reaching out to me  :-)

Hi Suzi,

Prayer is very powerful and I truly appreciate your prayers!   I will keep your friend in my prayers also.  You are so right, I really do know they need to reach their "rock bottom."   I must say, at times, I fear what that "rock bottom" may be.   I think they are getting near it, but only God knows.   Just talking with you helps me and you are an encouragement in that you have become healthy and drug free.  I will pray for your continued sobriety!   Stay strong!   I will keep in touch and let you know how things are going and will check in to see how you are doing also.   May you be blessed!   Blessings, Jennie

Hi Suzi,  Thanks for caring.  I have been buried under a heap of exams but am physically doing great considering how little sleep I have had.  Wasn't prepared enough for the exams due to the tram setbacks last month but if I can just get through, I am starting to believe I will do better.  It's so great that you are starting your studies tram free, it makes such a difference.

Love, M
