It has been a few days since I have posted. I am still on track. Boy, does the BIG "V" surgery stink for a guy. I had it a few days ago and if I see another bag of frozen peas, I will puke. I have not had any pain medication yet today, so I think all is going well. I will continue the taper and CT the rest of the crap on sunday as planned. Boy is the board slow these days. I guess with the winter coming, too many people are in denial and wont quit. NOT US, lets get this over with. Thats what i say. I am very excited for what the next month with bring. Am i looking forward to what NEXT WEEK will bring ---NOOOOOOOOOOOO, but hey, I got myself into this and I will get myself out of this.
Just like the others, couldn't pass up the chance to say, oh my, if you think the big V is tough, try childbirth 4 times and a total hysterectomy! Just kidding, any surgery is tough, truly. Our bodies were not meant to be cut open, especially near there! I know you will be able to make it through next week, and since I am relatively close to quitting like you, we are going to be there for each other to make it through the tough times that sneak up on us later. I, like you, think that is the really tough part. So hang in there, and post to me whenever you get a craving or that feeling, and we will talk each other out of it! Hang tough!
I'll be here with ya! I'm going down tapering from sub.. It's such a slow process and I just want to speed it up!! I go to 6 on Sunday for a week, then every Sunday go down a mg. I'm a little scared since I know some people have had problems once they get to the 2mg part.. But I'm going to start working out, because my Dr swears that will help me not feel so bad. I'm going to join a class at the Y. Hope you feel better soon!
Hi there Brandi! Long time no see! Sounds like your doing well on your taper, thats great! Keep up the good work even if it gets tough.
Today is day 40 for me, well sort of, I've had a few cocktails every now and then, but keepin myself in line.
Well just wanted to say hello when I saw your name. Take care, and will be thinkin bout ya! Your buddy, Tom
Just wanted you to know I am thinking of you as Sunday approaches. I am wishing you well. There are a lot of tools in your arsenol... use them faithfully. You can do this, you will do it. I am sure some prayerful time before the countdown begins will not fall on empty ears. Smiles.
Thanks for saying hello.. it had been a while since I heard from you! Good to hear.. 40 days!! Mine's been 53.. today is day 53. Today's my downdose day.. down to 6 mgs. I think it's more in my head than anything as it shouldn't be hard to go from 8 to 6. All I felt was some anxiety around midday. And hey, there's nothing wrong with a cocktail every now and again as long as there's no problem w/ alcohol. I never had a problem there.. just a beer every now and again. I always say I have some male chromazomes (sp) because I love college ball and bud light. Anyway, take care and don't be a stranger!!
