Re: why was my hell so long

Hi, kelleigh,
I only have a sec, as the kids are calling, but I will try to get it together today the best as I understand from what I learned in detox about our receptors and how individual they are both genetically and from our environment (including drug history and amount and type of drugs and/or alcohol ingested before age 17) that would affect how fast it would take for them to heal, which would affect our withdrawal time, I believe. Maybe someone with more knowledge will come on in the meantime; otherwise I'll be back later. The nurses at the hospital told me too that I could not longer be suffering from physical w/d, when I knew I was.

luv,
rosie

Re: why was my hell so long

kelleigh, again, another second grabbed, but just read you are on klonopin and you may need to do a taper off of that (suggest medically supervised to avoid seizures) as well, just from what I learned, as being on the benzos can make it harder because your "pleasure centers" are being stimulated, causing a "potato chip effect" which makes you want more.

OK, tell me otherwise before I get my klonopin refill, hee hee. NO, no no.

luv,
rosie
