First of all, Great Job! Look in my journals for Thomas recipe. Heed any warnings, but see if it will help you get through this. Everybody is different as to what day(s) are bad. Don't work yourself up over it. Usually by day 4 or 5 things get better. It takes a mind set that you are going to do this no matter what. Otherwise it is too easy to cave in when cravings hit or pain increases. Because they do increase before they get better. Your body will play 'tricks' on you to make you cave in! Don't! Stay in for the long haul.

You have a lot of courage. I am so glad you are taking these important steps. I think days 3-5 generally are often the worst. I am day 4 today,better than yesterday. However with your mixture and from what I understood from your post,you been short term this time. If so than it should not be as bad and the Valiums will help,so long as it is short term. Good luck and keep posting.
