What's up, Winnie?

I hope you are doing well and every day that goes by we are getting better. I have started taking supplements.....L-Tyrosine NOT Vicodin. I hope your aches and pains are getting better and that you are feeling stronger. I am still inlimbo on that but am looking forward to the day that I don't feel 125 years old. Just checking in.....take care.

Lisa

Re: What's up, Winnie?

Hey Lisa!!

How was your weekend? Mine went pretty well, getting better day by day. I guess the hardest part for me now is staying busy. My husband & I invited a few friends over and played cards which we haven't did in YEARS it brought good times back. So how are you feeling? What is Tyrosine? Are you still withdrawing? Let me know?

Hugs
Winnie

Re: What's up, Winnie?

Hi there!!

Yes I still am determined to make it. As days go by it does get better day by day sometimes its hard to see it though when you are withdrawing...but there is a light at the end and I'm starting to see it. How are you doing? Are you tapering from the Oxy's?

Re: What's up, Winnie?

Hi Winnie so glad to hear you are doing so great! Yes, I am taperin, using 1/2 of a 10 mg twice a day, then on Saturday I am going to go to 1/3 twice a day. Have been feeling pretty good, but have a hard time sleeping and my back pain is showing its ugly head! I go see the dr tomorrow (the one who did the surgery) so am anxious to see what he has to say. I took an ugly fall on Sunday, landing flat on my face, but seem to be ok from that, but I jsut need his assurance that all is well. I am up to walking 10 minutes a day, but have to do it indoors as my ashtma really acts up in the cold or heat. We are planning o n buying a treadmill when taxes come back, so that should help. anyway, glad to hear you are doing so well! Hugs, Tina

Re: What's up, Winnie?

Winnie!

I just read this thread and am so excited to hear you had friends over to play cards. "ATTA GIRL, WINNIE!!!"

These are the kinds of things to do. Yesiree, Bob, they sure are. Chuckles. What a wonderful step to take. The pleasure felt from that activity is a real helper to "brain healing."

Keep that determination strong, Friend. You are making it happen.

Love
reach
