Have you tried any amino acids to help? Also SamE 400mg helps this. Check with Dr if on anti-depressants. I have 2 posts in my journals that might help. Thomas recipe and one on amino acids.

Yeah i agree, this whole detox thing is the hardest thing i have ever done.

We will be fine.

Keep busy and exercise, it is the only thing that has really helped (plus this forum).

You need to see your doctor hun. You probably would benefit from a good check-up anyway. Please go, I don;t want to see you give up.

I know this forum has helped. I dont help many on here but i tried, I lurk alot and it has helped i just cant seem to get past depression. I dont even crave the **** dont want it or anything. Not on antidepress but maybe should be. Have been in the past for ( I cant even remember.....car accident/stroke) Im not suffering from stroke made a remarkable recovery docs are shocked just depressed now.......Sorry im babbling

You're not babbling. Makes sense to me. I found dark chocolate (70% cocoa) helped me some. A check up is a good idea, but you can get the supplements, even today.

This last time I w.d, the depression was horrible. It was so bad and I would not have been ok if it weren't for some here. I know what you mean, I didn't want to do anything nor did I care. You just have to try your hardest to get through it. Its hard, I know. But we are here for you. I mean that. Anything you need or want to talk about. Have you tried talking to someone? How about your family dr?

I dont know if this will help, but you can check into yourself and see what you think. I found a website while searching and learning about opiate withdraw. There is a product call neu-recover. It is basically 'brain food' I bought it for my son, but he kinda laughed at me. (addict) It helps to restore the natural brain function with L-Glutamine, 5 HTP etc.. Also I found that pepper extract helps give you a boost of endorphins immediatley when sprayed up your nose (I know this sounds painful) My son loved the pepper spray and went through a bottle in a week. It is called Sinus Busters. ($16)  I had high hopes for helping my son with these products, but he is not open to suggestions much these days. I bought the "vitamins" and also a product called neu-becalmd. Going through my sons addiction and all I have been a wreck! My heart races and I have panic attacks where I cant catch my breath. I tried it myself one night and within 15 min my whole self felt relaxed tingly and at ease. I take them at night now and fall asleep very easily. They are 100% natural. a little pricey though. $35 for the becalm and $76 for the neu recover. Just in case you would be interested.  Also, Oregano Oil is a natural pain killer that is 100%natural. I dont know, hope i dont sound loopy, I am into natural healing and have been so frustrated with my sons drug addiction I have consumed myself with ways to help him. That is all.......
