Starting day 4 FREE of tramadol

day 4









I slept last night and only woke up 1 time!! I didn't feel anxious, restless, or anything really.... and this morning, I feel.... GOOD. Not really shaky, not dizzy, but clear headed.

I don't know how this is even possible. Maybe I just expected so much worse because the lingering w/ds throughout my tapering process were just so nagging. I figured there was no way, if I was already feel like that tapering that i wouldn't feel 100x worse when I stopped. Maybe it was because it wasn't planned. I just went with the flow so there was no pressure. On day 2 I had about 6 hours or so that were pretty rough with those "flu like" symptoms but once I went to bed on day 2, I woke up without them. Yesterday was still a little foggy but had "windows" of time when I felt clear and today is even better.

What is so cool too is that since that rough night, i haven't really had a headache either, which is why I was put on tramadol in the first place. It's amazing how pain meds make you go in a vicious cycle.

Hoping today continues to be good....

Wow! This is great new! Sounds like that taper got a lot of the 'poison' out of your body. Congratulations on all your hard work! Way to go! Keep up the good work & hang in there.
