Question Question.....

I have been on and off hydros for a few years..... Everytime I detoxed mostly cold turkey, why is it on the 7th or 8th day I feel soooo good? Like a high? Then it goes away..... I feel that way for just 2 days. anyone else feel like that? And about 3 weeks after detoxing I nearly killed my husband with sex..... Poor guy ..... Just wondering about those great 2 days..... Thanks!
p.s my last hydro was Feb 4th 08.... So I'm clean now.....

Re: Question.....


First congrats on being clean since February. Great accomplishment.
I felt the same way at daay 7-8. I think it feels like our own natural endorphins,our "feel good" chemicals in our brain starting to come back after being shut down by the opiates for so long. I felt like I was on top of the world for a few days there...has evened out now.Still feel good, but it does seem like a natural high,doesnt it?

Then the sex thing...*grin*
I had noooo sex drive for a very long time when I was on the pills. None.
Wife was kinda freaked out by it because I've always been really sexual. Mine is just starting to come back,not full swing yet,but getting there.What a relief after no interest in it for so long.
by the way,I wouldnt feel too bad for hubby...poor guy my butt....*lol*

Have a great day!

Re: Question.....

Lack of sex drive bothered me to no end while I was using. My poor wife would want "it", and i would say no every time. She wondered why,as we were always pretty good together b4 I was using but for the last year while I was in full swing w/ the oxys and other opiates I didnt want any, I was always too embarrased to tell her why. I'd always make up some excuse.

trying to make up for lost time now,tho....hahaha

Re: Question.....

Its --- I'm RAVAGED by diarrhea..I've been clean a month and what was a welcomed relief to 2 years of constipation has been replaced by ..well you know.

In my post a few days ago, though, I theorized that not only was I was withdrawing but also had numbed myself with drugs to the fact that my job drives me nuts. Now that I'm clean, I went through the same w/d symptoms you described for about a week and now, it's just the diarrhea.

I haven't updated but I talked with the manager yesterday morning and she was GREAT and I realized....all this fog/anxiety has lifted and I was actually CLICKING at work. i had a great day yesterday...except for the diarrhea...

So this morning I got up and

a. made my wife very happy for the first time in about a month.
b. then realized I wasn't going to make it to work unless there was a porta-potty on the interstate...

so I'm taking a day off...for recover physically. I am using Immodium and it is starting to help. Also keep in mind the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast). All of these help with diarrhea a lot. Stay away from sodas and coffee/ want water or preferably apple juice. Drink all you can hold.

I never thought I could write so much about the runs, but hope it helps.

Re: Question.....

The runs are just part of it, something we have to accept. BUT, for people like us where the pills have made you constipated for so long.. it's actually a good thing. Except when it hit me, I was at a friend's house. Nothing more embarassing.. lol Anyway, wanted to throw my 2 cents in..
