Quitting oxycodone using suboxone taper. - Part 8

  1. Hey all,

    So last night I did end up taking .125 of sub. It took some of the shitty feeling away but not all. Slept ok. Woke up today feeling mentally clear but sneezing with a bit of a runny nose.
    In the past my physical withdrawal definitely dominated my mental withdrawal but then again my past runs on opiates weren't long. Let's see what today brings. I'm gonna try and not take any today and possibly take .125 again tomorrow evening.
    About to take the boys out for their morning walk. I usually walk around with them for about an hour twenty min. Helps.

    Thanks for the support. As always this would be much harder alone and y'all make me feel not so alone.

    You sound like you are doing ok. The worst of this for me is just not ever feeling well. I mean I am not puking all over myself or laying in the shower shaking and crying with horrific bone pain like cold turkey. But I just never feel well or good or normal? Does that make sense? I just wsnt this shit over with and done. As I am sure you do too. Honestly I am so happy I can come here and talk to others feeling the same crap.

    I am off to take more kratom. Had a dose around 6am and stuck to 17 pills once a day of loperamide. I am kicking.

    Well update. It's almost noon and walking for an hour and fifteen minutes helped but I am soaked in sweat and that's not from walking :) that and a minor runny nose are the only things going on this morning. It's all mild and tolerable. My mind is clear and focused which I like.

    We see how the day progresses :)

    Keep kicking JD! Glad to hear from you.

    Go you!!! Exercise really is the magic to get out from under this shit. If you don't mind me asking, how old are your boys? Two of mine are grown now but I still have one boy who is 9. Kids change you. You have to do for them and you come second and I think it is the time when I really grew up. That is why kicking has to happen. I need this to be my last quit.

    Well, I am keeping busy. Just threw together a big root veggie bake with thyme and rosemary and drizzled with toasted sesame oil. Plan to serve it over red rice. It smells wonderful and I have not cooked it yet!!! I am off to walk. Feeling better since the kratom but feeling guilty for using it at all. I will end up off the loperamide and then still have to wean kratom! Ugh.

    Keep at it man! You got this! We both got this. Thanks for your support. It really helps.
