Hello friends! RoadDoggy and Kitts and CMet! Good Morning!
Gbread slept 8 full hours last night and only sweated a little on and off! Can't beat THAT!!
Day 6: 3 in the AM and 3 in the PM
Tomorrow or the next I will drop again and then ole' GBread is jumping off the loperamide train forever.
Good riddance demon! I know it will be tough, but I'm ready to be free.
No withdrawal symptoms as of yet. No aches, pains, runny nose, RLS Restless Leg, or depression!
Spring has arrived and the birds are singing. Yes, I know it can change in an instant. That's the way this thing has worked from the beginning. Moment to moment with this drug. But I shall enjoy the now. It is really all I have anyways.
Will check in later for sure. I'm going to a meeting where I can hear some hope and recovery from people JUST like you! They have all overcome this addiction thing. No, not loperamide, I may be the only one on that drug, but they know what it is to suffer, to withdraw, and then to recover and be happy and free!
Love and Hugs and Grace,

Hi ya'll. Checkin' in for the night. NO withdrawals today whatsoever from loperamide. I know it can change tonight, but I'm enjoying the reprieve! Thank God....or whatever is helping me.
I went to an AA meeting tonight and wow. Some guy who has been clean and sober for 8 years told his story and WOW. Powerful story of hope and redemption. I laughed and cried through the whole story. He said he asked God for help and then he went to a meeting, got a sponsor, worked the 12 steps and has been free ever since. What? For real. I was blown away. This guy was suicidal, I mean drugs and alcohol all over his life and wow. I'm thinkin' well, if HE can do it, I can do it. Anyways, I know a lot of people here are funny about the meetings, but I figure, I don't have anyone or anywhere else to go, and these people really know their stuff. I mean, I sat at lunch today with about 10 women, and man, there was seriously several HUNDRED years of sober and clean time. I am serious! There was something inexplicable in their eyes. Joy. Hope. Honesty. Gut level Honesty and a sincere desire to share this with ME. Little ole me. I was in awe. Something powerful is going on.
Anyways, I am not promoting anything. I am only sharing internet peoples. Just what I see. Just the facts. Think I'm going to pray and plan to go to another meeting tomorrow.
Love and Hugs and Thank you all so much,
