Day 21 Off Hydro's (C/T)

Made it to day 21. Never thought I would get here. I have been very active, and actually stating having a good time again, like normal people (whatever that is) But it's nice. Putting back on my weight (I needed it) and my attitude has done a 360. I was also put on a antidepressant to help with some of the issues that were some of the root cause. Anyway, for all those who are just starting - I went though days of hell, but the fog does clear and clear skies make for a much better and brighter life. Have no pain, sleep is ok, not perfect..but not too bad either. I am no longer a hermit crab keeping to myself most of the time. I actually GO and do now. Amazing. Didn't think it was possible to be this happy, with out the pills. It's so much better than expected. I did for so long, 9 years I wasn't even sure I would know who I really was when I came out of the Fog (I like to call it) It can be done, you have to really want it, BAD. Relapses happen. Don't let them get you too down. I relapsed probably....countless before I changed my whole attitude, very significant. I'll check back again tomorrow and see how all are doing. It's been good here :)
