Day 32 - 2 in the am and 2 in the pm - that's 4 loperamide (2mg)
Last night had monster stomach cramps and burning. It took awhile to go to sleep.
Took 2 zantac (rantidine) and it helped a little. Slept 7 hours. Not too shabby.
So this morning a wonderful friend calls me up. She is in the program also. Really smart and beautiful. I tell her I can't go on this women's retreat and explain to her all about the loperamide. She works in the medical profession like many of you.
I confess to her the stomach issues and withdrawals from loperamide, how crazy it is -how I just don't tell everyone about it because it's just NUTS. She seems to get it.
Then she said 'aloe vera juice' helps digestive issues and ulcers? I said, 'yeah ive heard of it' - She said the organic, all-natural is best.
So... she drives to the grocery, gets it, and brings it TO MY HOUSE on her way to work! I insisted on paying her, but she probably wouldn't have taken it. So kind and thoughtful! Everyone should have friends like this.
Aren't friends like this rare?
I want to be a friend like that.
So I drank some and it soothed my tummy.
If you guys lived nearby, ...I would seriously drive over and give you each a glass.
Much Love, GB
