That was an awesome and encouraging post. I will cherish it. Seriously.
I am so impressed and happy for you that you came off loperamide in January - March! Did you have a journal? Did you use any medications or other opiates to come off with your taper? Would love to hear how the days progressed when you got to single digits and after zero. I am SO happy for you!! What an inspiration to me. Before Drugs-Forum I was so alone in this and that's why I decided to post my progress.
Yes I have probably been more moody and emotional than most, even before I ever took any loperamide. Also I think the perimenopause question is totally valid as for my sweating. The sweats aren't profuse yet, nor like they were when I tried to quit cold turkey last November.
I wonder if it's my age, though. Yuck. I did have a hysterectomy 1 1/2 year ago, but haven't had any sweats or hot flashes until the loperamide thing either. Who knows, it is worth looking into.
Thank you so much for the words of kindness! They do mean the world to me in this lonely journey.
I am so grateful for my family and they are my biggest cheerleaders. Would be so alone without them.
Much love to all,
