Thanks for your support catgoddess and JD. I hope your both doing well. I am 32 hours and 29 minutes in from my final dose of codeine. I think and hope I have got the taper spot on this time. Two weeks ago I taperd too fast and crashed badly. But I picked myself up. Went back one step to gain 2 or 3 steps forward. Slow, really slow is the way to go for me. I have a few minor aches and pains but no worse than the flu. My head seems OK too. Just some mild free floating anxiety yesterday. No pain in the chest. Cool.
I have some councilling today and possible accupuncture but my chineese doctor said do not use two accupuncturists as they will treat you in a different way. Not sure what I will do. I feel like taking it today maybe just one go. Then back to the chinaman on thursday. I had my first chineese herbs yesterday. It didnt taste bad as he had suggested and I didnt get a bad tummy either. I,ll have two 2mg teaspoons today. So my freinds. Things are heading in the right direction. My eldest daughter is skiing in Austria. I am not jealous at all lol. Lucky girl. She needs it. She was born with Achondraplasia. Its the most common form of dwarfism. My heart has bled for her. Her mother too. She will be 17 on the shortest day of the year. December 21st. We laugh about it. M being very small and having her birthday on the shortest day. She got to 4 foot. The condition is genetic. You can't do much medically but she didnt want to have limb lengthening. I wouldnt want it either. I would just want to be myself. She has grown into a wonderful young lady. We are all very proud of what she has achieved. I am texting her a lot and she said "thanks dad" yesterday via text. That hasnt happened for a while and means alot to me like she will never know.
Thanks everybody. I got this in the bag now. Have a good day. Peace mono
