Day 39 2am
Well, woke up 10 hours past last dose with painful, achy arms. They just hurt. So I got up and followed Ianzombie's guidance and took just a 1/2 tsp of kratom. I want to get to morning for full dose. Then I took motrin, sat in a hot shower, and then rubbed them down with Tiger Balm. That seems to be working. Now took Nyquil in attempt to get sleepy again.
Smith, yes I think stress plays a huge role in this. I still maintain that getting clean is 100% mental. Am I feeling physically great? Nope but I figure I spent a lot of time in fake oxy euphoria. Now I am entering back into reality. I know I am going to hurt some but accepting this makes it easier to handle. Its like the childhood train story "I think I can, I think I can."
Mel, you don't have to cook much. Eggs for breakfast is great. At lunch go to the store and find a big contaner of cut up fresh fruit. Eat the whole damn thing. For dinner, do the soup but pick the veggie one not milk based soup. Pick up pre-sliced carrots, celery, or other veggies raw and eat them with your soup. Your body will start to transform just by these simple habits...and no cooking involved. Healing bodies need some raw food.
As for the pain of a taper, I have done cold turkey and for me this is better. It has allowed me to keep working and in 3-4 weeks more I will be done with it. I am hopeful that this thread does inspire people. I think everyone is capable of getting clean if they have the right attitude and support.
Love to you all. I am going back to bed. Feeling much, much better.
