So I'm on my 10th day off roxy. This is the longest ive gone in a very long time. It's pretty cool. Im very happy to have run out of my meds early, even though of course it's not easy.
I felt fine physically the first week which was weird, but then crashed a few days ago and had trouble sleeping, feeling sick in all ways to my stomach, exacerbated pain symptoms (for what I take them for) etc.
Today I just feel "out of body"... I can't really describe it. And Ive had a weird rash for days which i think is my body getting rid of the pills.
I do feel better in general emotionally too. I mean, I still have issues
but I don't feel like a pendulum swinging all over ... And I'm really happy for this time.
Today i am proud of one action. I could have swung by a pals and gotten some percs and vicodens (she is legally prescribed and sometimes gives me some).... anyhow the point is, she isn't local and I did NOT tell her I was driving basically past her house. I was proud if myself, as I totally could have caved and called her for "help".
So, this is where I am today, 10 days... I wanted to share. To all those trying to quit, it does get better... every day the sun sets you are closer to another day off. An unclouded mind is a cool thing.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
