quitting opiates cold turkey- on day 3 - Part 63

  1. Day 72,

    I really have nothing new to report. I'm doing pretty good. My pain is manageable without meds right now. I'm still not running but I'm doing other cardio and weight training.

    Right now I'm focusing on eating healthy and exercise to finish losing weight.

    I need to start working out the reasons I was abusing the opiates in the first place however I have done a great job of pushing that aside and focusing on other things. Not good but I'm so good at it LOL.

    Anxiety wise, I'm okay. I'm still having nightmares frequently and am planning on starting some meds for that when I see my doc here in a couple weeks. There are a few options that have been discussed to help with PTSD and several people on here have had success so I am going to give it a shot.

    Hope everyone is doing well ;)

    You are very self aware. This is so important to getting well. If we can't resolve why we were using, it will just come back. Working out and healthy eating though will certainly help you heal too. I am very proud of you!

    JD,

    Hey there!!!! I'm still around. I've had some health issues I've been dealing with so I haven't been able to really get on here or any social media sites actually lately. I'll fill you in a little more tomorrow.

    thanks for checking in, I hope you are doing well. I will be reading your thread right after I finish this post.
