Yes, it was insanity. This college is nuts. The good news is I spent the time getting my travel reimbursement done!
I will restart the herbs in a week. They take a week or two to work. I just want them up and working when I jump. I am not so worried about this. The taper is really going OK. I am kind of surprised.
Pain management...hmmm I don't know yet. I think I will try all that I am doing currently and accept that from time to time I might need ONE pill. I feel in control again. I don't know maybe I am kidding myself but I honestly have not touched the pills.
My marriage is doing well and we are close again. It is such a relief and he is working hard to overcome his issues. I think we will be OK. That everything is going to be OK.
You also are a good woman my dear!
