And how is the no meds going? Do I think I could go without me pain killers, nerve pills, muscle relaxers and so on, hmmmm maybe someday. Not as long as I still want to function. I have gone days with less meds when I am off work for extended time but usually pay for it. Have even tried to go off one type of med like say the nerve pill or pain pill. Not so great but did it for maybe 6 hours. Really need the nerve pills without my Lyrica I AM IN A WHIRLWIND of trouble. Left them at home last Thursday when I went to work. It was Saturday afternoon before I could see straight without a HUGE and horrible neck headache. Wont make that mistake again.
Yes I also want to remember what I felt like. I have tried to go some time without meds and well, I am gone the way I once was at least. I am who I am now. I will just have to go onward. And it was interesting to realize how much the meds mask the pain. I too wonder if long term if I was able to push past the first days, weeks and months if I could get off all meds and take advil. I guess I will still wonder for now.
