Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 197

By Jungledog · Jan 27, 2015 · ·
  1. Sparkles, My low libido is a result of a whole host of shit. I think primarily it is the gabapentin and now the Cymbalta (as my mood is better all around but the libido thing is worse in the past few weeks) as both suppress desire and gabapentin interferes with orgasm. I work 70 hours a week. There is a shit ton of stress. We are working on marital problems; but this is going better thankfully. I am in peri-menopause and have issues with irregular cycles. AND my damn oldest daughter moved home so my hubby and I have like no freaking privacy. She is 23 and stays up to all hours and well...its awkward. I think if we got away alone for a week with no distractions, we would be fine. I agree that people should think about what the underlying cause is for them. It can be simple or it can be quite complicated.

    Sleepy, I love my career in education. It was the best decision I ever made. It's long hours but it is your hours and so it is flexible. Teaching in health care depends on the area. Nursing has a real shortage nationwide; especially in specialties like OB. Most states want you to hold a degree one higher than what you teach. So if you teach undergrads, you need at least a Masters. Most real universities want PhD's. There is a lot of funding now for education so it might be affordable to do. Might be a great option for you!

    On that note, I am off to grade! :)

    This is quite hilarious. I won't go into detail. There are no lubrication problems. The problem is pain after sex in my back because of my discs. I'm not sure exactly what position caused it being that there was an awful lot going on but my partner and I are going to try and figure out what exactly caused it and avoid it. I have an idea of what just may have happened. Anyways, I don't want to derail JD's thread. We can talk about it on my thread if need be. I am supposed to go to the doc today although it's just primary care. I am in a really bad mood though so I may reschedule. Anyways, thanks for the laughs.

    Ok, so jumping off of the wardrobe onto a bed with an erect penis waiting for you (not in every case obviously) is too adventurous for you huh? Well...I am surprised. All right I'll lower the bar a little. My next suggestion is you attach yourself to one of those ceiling fans by a flag (your national flag will be best, and you tie it around the blades of the fan with a little bow behind your back with you facing downward (just make sure the bed is below the fan ok?) Now you get your partner to turn the fan on, obviously the more adventurous you are the faster you have the fan going. Then when you feel that you're ready you just undo that littler bow that you tied behind your back earlier. This should result in you once again landing on an erect penis draped in your national flag. I call this the Patriotic (that's what the flag was all about...get it now?) Rumpy Pumpy. One word of warning...be very careful what lube you use (you do need lube for this one just in case you don't land perfectly on target, luckily the penis should be a bit bendy so you'll still just about make it) and how much you use. Too much lube, especially if you use baby oil. You could find yourself landing so fast and hard that you bounce right off again, and that's when you end up damaging furniture and walls. And then you gotta explain to the neighbours (and in-laws) just how you gotta hole in the ceiling right where the ceiling fan used to be, a hole that is almost circular and the size of a human head. That's the easy bit, it's the ear shapes, one each side of the head, how do you explain where they went?

    PS. I'm sorry JD, I'm just having a bit of fun, I'll quit now.

    Mel, in all seriousness now, you may find that your back is like your detox...baby steps. Start with something that you know is gonna be comfortable, even if it is the boring missionary position. It's not about being adventurous is it? It's another way to show your feelings for someone, a way to get as close as possible. Gradually build up, but for now get some toys out and whipped cream. Use durex pleasure gel, Apparently it tingles. You can make yourself into an ice cream sundae with your favourite ice cream, strawberry fun gel, squirty cream and chocolate sprinkles. Using your tummy, or the small of your back (that is sooo good, trust me) as the dish. Use your imagination, I'm here in the UK but even I can see the dish.

    PS. This is definitely the last post about sex in JDs thread ok?

    Are you kidding??? This shit is way better than grading any day!!! OMG. I needed the laugh. My luck I'd swing off the fucking fan and fly naked right out the window impaling myself on a palm tree. On the upside, this discussion has me thinking about sex!;)

    Too true. I remember when I was taking it 3X daily and another doctor seemed surprised that I could function well thru the day.
    But the tolerance drops just as fast once you stop. Later on I tried it again to see if I could still get any benefit. Just one pill but I was very glad that I happened to be near my bed that evening. Loopy as heck!

    Again in all seriousness JD, sex is extremely therapeutic. It works like a sedative, it can cure insomnia, and it can be, depending on how energetic you are, it can also be a full body work out. So forget the gym, just have sex for an hour. ;)

    The funniest thing I ever heard was from a guy that I was friends with (he was looking for a fuck buddy) might have been in with a chance if he hadn't told me that he'd love me to walk all over his back in the boots I was wearing that day. They had 3 inch heels. Ok, not too far out so far. Then he told me that he loved to have his feet tied behind his head so that his balls could be squeezed really hard. That was me...out of there, I don't do pain, I'm a lover not a fighter. Apparently a woman he met the previous night stripped him naked, sat him on the island in the middle of the kitchen, did as he requested and trussed him up like a chicken (as I've already described) only rather than leaving his arms and hands free she put them through his legs and tied them behind his head too. Yeah, she gave him his favourite massage, apparently she kneaded and twisted them so hard he said he couldn't wait to get untied and that he was expecting balls the size of a 2 year olds after the massage he gave him. Only things didn't quite go to plan. Afterward she sat and smoked 2 cigarettes, opened the blinds to his huge patio windows at 11-00am in the morning knowing that his window cleaner was gonna be cleaning all of the windows that afternoon.

    All I can say is I'll bet he was glad his window cleaner had a key. Jesus H Christ...imagine that poor bloody man walking down the path at the side of the house and turning the corner to see that? Oh well, I suppose one window cleaner is better than 5-10 cops all laughing their balls off (how appropriate eh) and all with their phones out taking pics. LOL I never saw him after he told me that. The embarrassment eh?

    ok, back to work huh?

    Have you suggested to your GP that you go onto Pregabalin? I was first prescribed Gabapentin but as has already been said tolerance to this drug occurs quite rapidly. When I mentioned that Gabapentin did seem to work for me, it was just the speed at which it wore off that was the problem I was then prescribed Pregabalin. Now I', not too sure what the difference between these two drugs is, all I know is that Pregabalin seemed far more potent and tolerance wasn't such a big problem. Yes it did occur but it took a lot longer than with Gabapentin. As a pain reliever (they're best used for nerve pain) I found along with my other meds they really did help a lot more than the Gabapentin. Speak to your doctor and see what they say, mention that you spoke to someone who had used both and who found that the Pregabalin seemed to be far more effective as a pain reliever with tolerance not being such a big problem. They can only say no...right?
