Finally a few good days

Jan 21, 2009 - 0 comments

I actually got up today and went to the grocery store for the first time since last week!  I am VERY happy to report that I didn't feel like I was going to die this week.  I truly think I'm getting better day by day (most of the time).  I got up early and was out the door by 9:45 am and back by 11:00.  I had more energy today than I've had in ages.  I can't even believe the feeling!  Even if I only had a few days like this a month, it would be better than any of the days I had on Tramadol.  I never thought I'd be saying that.

My anxiety issues seem to be getting much better.  I didn't feel like everyone was out to get me like last week.  My moodiness is much better today.  I can tell a HUGE difference compared to last week.  Last week at this time I thought I might never be able to leave the house again in fear of the anxiety and triedness I was constantly feeling.  

Yesterday I left the house as well, but still had a bit of a fuzzy feeling in my head.  Today it feels more clear than it has in so long.  It truly is a miracle in the making.  Even if it's just one day, I know that the struggle to rid myself of this evil drug has been for the better.  

Sleeping is much better now as well.  I used to get up several times a night on the Tram because I was in so much pain and would end up having to take more just to get back to sleep.  I've been sleeping for longer periods of time without waking up.  To roll out of bed in the morning without the pain has made me feel lilke a teenager again.  How did I not know that the Tram was making me so sick?
