It is good to hear from you. Yes, I went back on pills, but I am committed to this taper. I have to do it now. It's only going to be worse the longer it continues.
I went to bed last night at 12:30am and woke up today at 5am. I get shit sleep when I WD from pills even with a small amount of Xanax or Ambien. Oh well, I did this to myself so I have to pay the Piper.
Anxiety and chills so I am going to tough it out awhile and then take 3 grams of Kratom. It helped a lot yesterday. It is good to hear you stepped off Kratom with little issues. That really is my concern. I hope to keep my dose low and use Ian's advice on taking it just when I need it.
Have to do my Mom's tax return today and attend a family event so at least I will be busy. Damn I am tired. Lack of sleep and anxiety are the worst symptoms.
Thank you for your support. Talk soon.

Happy St Patty's Day guys!
The 3 grams of Kratom I took this morning held me pretty well today. That said, I could tell this evening it was wearing off, and I was starting to come out of my skin a bit.
So I took 2 grams of Kratom at 9:30pm. I think it will help me get some sleep. The 2 grams calmed me right down and I hope to sleep from 12:30am to 6 or so. The sleep deprivation just makes it a lot harder.
Tomorrow morning I am curious to see how I feel. The good news is no backsliding although I had some cravings here and there.
I just need to keep pushing. Day by day.
