Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 182

By Jungledog · Jan 9, 2015 · ·
  1. This week has been difficult. Last night was first night of class and it was a bit rough as one of the other classes had a few students who decided acting out and being idiots was the order of business for the day. As I now run the campus, I got to put them in their place. Now I have been reported to the dean which is fine as I will be in her office this morning for at least an hour to kick off a 9 hour long interview for the permanent position.

    I could use some positive vibes today to survive this interrogation. Life wise I am fine. Nervous about today but otherwise ok. Hope you are all well! Love to you.

    Slow down if you can. The slower you go the easier it will be. I know about the temptation. Try using a small dose of kratom when you feel shitty. It helps with the fatigue. You can do this.

    Hi JD,

    I just spent some time catching up on your thread! You are doing well, my friend. I seriously (no shitting) have 2nd degree burns on my back from the heating pad. I can't feel when its burning because of the nerve damage, but the heat relieves the deep muscle pain. I related to your post on the tens unit!

    My brother showed up unexpectedly new years eve from Utah. He walked out on his wife, very unusual behavior for him. Needless to say he wasn't doing so well. He stayed several days which made it difficult to post, and then when he left I had so much stuff to do that I had put off due to his visit.

    I am finally getting a chance to catch up on threads as I finally have everything submitted for the MFA application. I have a statement of intent that I will submit today and then I will be done!!! Yaaaaayyyyy..... There's so so so much busy work required in applying, it's a little ridiculous. Ugh!

    How did your interview go? Going from part time to fill time is crazy making. What were the students were doing in the other class??? I had a student that was downloading pawn in my class once!!! Seriously, some students have NO common sense!! I also had a class that had two mortal enemies.....that was a lot of fun!! Everytime of of them commented it was an insult to the other. Gggggrrrr!!

    I hope your promotion comes with more money, but if I know higher education, it's doubtful :). Love to you, my friend. I have missed you.

    Hey girlie,
    Came to check in on you and see how things are going.

    I have to say, you are so rocking this look and I'm thrilled that you seem more upbeat.

    Sending lots of positive energy your way. If you could possibly return the favor, I'd be most appreciative. My back's been hell with the seriously cold weather. And since I'm one of those gluttons that won't take pain meds, well, I'm sure you can imagine.

    Be well, sista.

    Oh lord JD hope you're not still stuck in that marathon interview. I am so sure you were incredible. Honestly, they would be damn lucky to have you. Are kids still misbehaving when they're studying medicine? That's kind of surprising but they are technically still young I suppose.

    Thanks for the words of wisdom. Still holding at 25mg - day 6 on oxycodone taper. Doing the gabapentin and clonodine and smoothies. What in the world did we do before gabapentin? I have no idea but I am eternally grateful for it. I may use some Kratom so thanks for reminding me.

    Hey JD my friend. Just thought I'd catch up with your posts. You seem to doing really well in many ways. That's brilliant. I enjoy you being well. You are a fantastic human being.

    Sorry about your pain but if anyone can manage the pain you can ! You have a great wealth of experience to draw from, I wish you luck with it.

    Thanks for the recipes too. Just waiting on a new Nutri bullet. :thumbsup:

    Hope the job interview went well too. I,d employ you any time LOL.

    I am doing ok and have read all your posts, JD, Bumble and Mel. I respect you all. You all help me well. You have left me with much to think about. Thank you.

    Keep working on yourself JD as I know you will. Enjoy your life like I am starting to enjoy my own now with all the love and support you have given me. Thanks mate.

    Remember to take time for yourself JD.

    May your god go with you. Peace and love Mono :vibes:
