Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 144

By Jungledog · Dec 14, 2014 · ·
  1. Doing a bit better thing evening. Think the flu is passing except for stuffy sinuses and achy joints. Detox wise I just have no fucking energy and it is starting to piss me off. My cats follow me around. My husband calls them my entourage. They know Mom isn't right. Pretty sad when the animals notice!!

    Mel, you are welcome to write a damn book on my thread. I kinda like that it has become a hangout place of sorts. Groups are stronger than individuals. You sound good. I also have that rank funky sweat. Our bodies are ridding themselves of toxins. It will pass. Keep drinking alot of water to flush things out. And eat what you can. I have a really poor appetite right now. Been drinking juice and water with lemon. Some smoothies and soup. That is about it. Keep beating that bitch the hag. You can do it. And I would love to do lunch!

    Bear, I left you a message. I am happy this thread was inspirational to you. It gives me the courage to keep moving forward to show others this shit can be beat. It can. Mind over matter.

    Love to all!!

    Great thread Jungledog!

    i posted this one another thread just a second ago but I feel it's worth putting here because it sounds like something from some buddist book or whatever but it's from the film Dune and it's one I think of a lot in fearful times

    “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

    Hey JD,
    Sorry to hear you've been sick. I know it double sucks with withdrawal symptoms still lurking. It's funny how animals are so psychic. My little dog always knows when something is up with me. It's nice to have silent company sometimes Lol.

    I have posted here twice but for some reason they didn't get here. Oh well, just want you to know I'm thinking about you and hope you are completely well very soon.

    I have missed you!!! Sorry your posts were lost. Sucks when that happens. I am still feeling pretty shitty but it is what it is. I am sitting here with all my animals and getting ready to just get to bed!

    Hope you are doing ok and your detox symptoms are better.

    That makes total sense to me. The oxy makes the pain more bearable. That Gaba/Clonodine/Ibuprofen sounds like a winning combo. I was planning on using that (along w/loperamide and a few other select drugs) during tapering/withdrawal. The thought of even cutting back 5mg of oxy is making me anxious but I guess that's where the WD drugs come to the rescue. Not sure what the Clonodine is for specifically and am a bit worried that it will drop my BP too low. I don't have low blood pressure but it just makes me nervous. Unless it helps w/restless legs during tapering/WD and then I'm all over it.

    Thank you SO much for those smoothie recipes. You are awesome to do all that in the midst of your pain. Can't wait to try them out. :vibes:

    Love how your cat entourage is lending support. Aren't animals the most intuitive creatures? I'm counting on mine to do the same.

    Wishing you a pain free night. Sweet dreams JD.

    Hi lovely, sorry I haven't been around much. I'm in a pissy withdrawal bitch mode, mainly because my body is just hurting all.the.time. Grrrr.... And, is been dealing with car shit. Combining both made the day from hell, so I spent the night watching re-runs with the kids.

    I hate the achey crap! I will post tomorrow, I have another photo shoot, but will check on you hopefully before that, my friend. We are doing this.... it feels like both heaven and hell..... Although right now, pretty much just like hell....

    Love to you. :)

    Hey JD girl, Just read the first few pages of your journal, couldn't manage any more as the meds are still messing with my site. I'm really impressed how you've gone about this. Like me you worked hard through your addiction and supported a family, thats no small feat so take pride in that, it shows major inner strenght.

    A year ago I used to laugh at people taking about loperamine but i have since learnt how serious a drug it can be but how it can also be a very usful tapering drug.

    Anyways, big respect from the Bumble
