16 hours since last pill...

I feel like garbage.  Sweating, cold, achey and most of all anxious.  Crawling out of my skin.  Restless legs.  Watched Super Soul Sunday on OWN this am...enjoyed it.  Getting ready to shower and ride with my husband to GNC to get aminos.  It has to be better than lying here watching the minutes tick by.  Im agitated.  Pissy.  This *****.  I want a time machine.  I know it is only going to get worse before it gets better : (

You're doing it!  Just keep going!  I'm so jealous that you're even showering!  I can't get off the couch, but my cats are loving it.  All three of them curled up with me.  You can do it.  I know you can!

Lol...I remember not feeling like I could possibly take a shower and how amazing it felt when I did.    The mantra is one of gnarlys...you gotta be ok with not being ok to get through this.  You should be peaking today and start noticing it lessoning some tomorrow and each day after.   What you are doing is a GOOD thing in reclaiming your life even tho you feel like s h I t right now.   Just hold on...and don't let go of how this drug has brought you to your knees!
