Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 213

  1. Roaddog,

    Benzo withdraw is no joke for sure. So you off completely? You gained 8 lbs? Did you mean you lost? Hope you are starting to feel better my friend. You deserve to be clean and feeling well!!

    I am doing fine. Dropping the kratom dose and pushing the intervals apart. So far the lower dose is still taking the edge off the pain. I will drop slowly and try to stay off for a bit. The pain is a real issue for me. I really hoped coming off the opiates would reduce the pain but that is not the case. It has sucked for the past few days and it slows me down and makes me irritable. Been using my TENS unit a lot. I wish there was a solution. Opiates do help but they are no solution as they create all these endocrine issues even when taken as prescribed. The whole thing sucks. Makes me angry, sad, and hopeless which is a bad combo. Ugh.

    Hope you are all well and feeling strong. This place and all you wonderful people give me strength. Love to you.

    No I mean I gained 8 pounds. To funny huh? I was in a detox facility, that allowed me any dam thing I wanted to eat. Hell they would grill me up hotdog, and hamburgers for me. I could order double orders, so I did.

    My logic was If I'm eating I'm not dyeing. I know, it makes no sense. I am supposed to be sick, and loosing weight. I am sick, but my sickness, seems to mainly be mental. I'm do have the twitches, and shakes, But I am alive.

    I am glad to hear your taper is going well. I am sorry your in so much pain. I know, coming off loperamide, can cause a lot of discomfort. It could be that that some of that pain is seeping through.

    Also, I would assume, If you previously had a condition that required pain meds, that condition would come back, once the opiates are decreased, or stopped.

    I guess its a matter of finding the right pain management. But you probably don't need me telling you that. I know this, there are other ways to deal with pain, besides drugs. I wish I could be of more help than that.

    But unfortunaly, or I guess fortunately for me, I have never taken opiates for pain. I always used drugs to get high. But You are in my thoughts. I am amazed how well you are doing.

    I would say, the usual, slow down your taper some, if its hurting you. I know, you also already know that. Anyway, I just wanted to stop in, and give ya some love. Make sure you still alive and kicking, as I see you are. Your a lot like me, you trudge forward, regardless.

    I can see that quality about you, I guess its because we must be related. I mean, we both have the same last Name. We are both Dogs. Loving you and wishing you an amazing day. Much Love Roaddog....

    Hey bud. Just stopping by to show some love. I miss everyone. But way too busy to post any long updates plus it is very annoying to type on the phone. I hope you are doing great and staying strong. I have been so busy between kids and work and trying to figure out the future that I literally sometimes have to look for five minutes in my day to do something.

    Things are starting to look up with the wife and were working through the trust issue slowly but surely so tough road ahead but now that everything is out in the open so little easier dealing with it.

    I will try to come check in soon.

    Love you and miss you greatly,
