This may be a silly question

How do you know when you're back to normal or feeling better? The false energy the pills/subs  gave us almost confuses us what was real energy and what was chemical.   So how can you tell when you're "back?"

That is a very good question!
I believe after what I put my body threw I no longer know what my normal is! When I started this opiate journey I was 11 years younger!
So what is normal I guess normal is when I am no longer craving a pill, and the energy will follow...you know my drill one minute, one hour, one day at a time~

When you don't have to ask yourself if you're feeling normal...  If you're unsure, then you probably aren't back to chipper yet.  It's not a silly question, but as humans we tend to overthink things sometimes.  When you don't have to think about it then you know things are coming right.

You'll know. It just takes time.

I love how Jethro put it. When you don't have to ask yourself.

When you wake up in the morning feeling good. I mean good. No stomach ache or cramping or bathroom issues.  I remember that day and it is what I hold onto. I had not felt so good and full of life and happy.  Yes I know you still have energy issues and some blues.

But you wake up good. You don't need a pill to not feel ill. To get out of bed. It hits you. Wait. I'm through it.
