Ya, it's me and my new thread, as so many have been encouraging me to start. Well, day 3 is almost over, and it is nothing new that I have not experienced from my taper or from the last attempted jump. I do think it's hitting me a little harder and faster because I was off for a little bit, but still able to eat a little, and somewhat sleep. Taking it a day at a time, and keeping the comfort meds to a minimum during the day. Stay tuned...

I hate them too!! The only good thing is that it's not like kicking full opioid agonists, where you're freezing and soaking your clothes at the same time, and it's 85 degrees outside! They come and go for me, but nothing a hot shower can't handle.

I got screwed at work with the ac and sweats so bad. Soon as I got inside I would sweat profusely then freeze my ass off from the wet shirt and cold air. It was awful :(

Alright, so here is the day 4 morning check-in: Woke up feeling kind of blah, with the eyes watering and the stomach gurgling, but once again, just like before when I jumped, simply getting out of bed and moving around makes me feel a little better, and takes away that panic feeling of "Oh, shit! Is today the day that I'm not going to be able to function?" But it never happens that way, and I am functioning just fine. I had a hard time getting to sleep last night, even with the meds, but ended up getting about 5/6 hours so I am stoked on that. I also want to say that the last 3 days have flown by and I believe it's because I was just so fed up, and this time truly wanted to be done with it. I can't believe it's day 4 already!!! I'm starting to get excited about life again and looking forward to a fun Summer! (after I recover from the surgery, of course). I'm just so glad that this chapter in my life has come to a close. Don't get me wrong, subs were absolutely necessary in order to halt that downward spiral my life was heading in, and I am grateful that I had a doc who was encouraging and supportive of this jump. Now, it is simply time to move on. More later...

Thanks! The symptoms come and go, but I have definitely reached this level of acceptance that I'm just going to feel shitty for a little bit, and it's okay! Keep yourself busy with whatever you can! I notice that I can now go a couple hours without even thinking about the jump. Ya, just say f it, I'm going to get through this, just for today! Keep pushing!

Tick tock...no sleep. I don't really feel bad, just wide awake. I've browsed through hundreds of movies on Netflix & can't decide what to watch. Documentary? Comedy? Also debating popping in Inglorious Basterds; I just bought it at Target for $5. Hopefully I will be somewhat sane by the time the sun comes up and it's time to do mama work...

Good Morning Mama! Sure hope you got some decent sleep last night and are feeling better! If not, you will very very soon! Be good to yourself today and take it easy!

I slept like a baby last night, which i needed. Two words; Cloni dine.

Acceptance is good state of mind for recovery, mama, hope you feel better.

Mama, have you ever watched the TV show The West Wing? It's a really good show that has humor woven into it, but it tackles a serious subject at the same time. Many of the actors in the show are supreme and you'll fall in love with them pretty quickly.......and Rob Lowe is one of that actors. I think he's woman eye candy, ain't he?

If you can't sleep tonight, pull up the original West Wing episode (I think it's called "Pilot") and see if you like it. If you do, the series went on for a few years and there are many episodes, most all of which are very, very good.

BF & Ji: The clonidine finally kicked in and helped very early this morning, and managed about 5/6 hours of sleep. I took 2 total; 1 and then another 1 5 hours later, which seemed to do the trick. As long as I get some sleep, 4-5 hours worth, I am not a complete zombie the next day.

Romeo: I have never watched the West Wing, but will look up the plot and see if it grabs my attention. I ended up watching part of "The Hobbit" last night, as I want to watch the 2nd one, but needed a refresher since it's been a while since I've seen the first one. And yes, I am a Lord of the Rings nerd! However, I never jumped on the whole "Harry Potter" train; I think I am the only person in the world who watched the first one, and by the time I saw it like 5 have already been out, and said "I don't see what the big deal is!!!!" But, to each their own, right? Hopefully I won't have this dilemma tonight because I will be catching some serious zzzzzz's!
