Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 79

  1. Day 27 Surviving

    Well, got through today. As the semester wraps up, the work load becomes immense. This of course overlaps with the holidays and makes for madness. It's complicated because I am required to practice to keep my certifications to keep my license so I can't "just teach." I need to do both. I was recently approached by a free clinic asking me to cover their cardiac program. This would be volunteer work and be way less time...but financially it makes no sense. My husband is doing a GREAT job managing our young child and household so that I can just focus on work. This is such a help.

    Detox wise I am just tired. Had REALLY severe anxiety this morning but there has been work drama. Sticking to my yoga. Eased up on exercise though as I think it was not good for my adrenals right now.

    I took 5 tsps of kratom total today. Yep, I went up a bit but I feel much better and can function. Going to slow this ride down. Go low but slow is the goal. I will get there.

    Food today: Breakfast & lunch green smoothies, dinner vegan taco salad with refried beans & green salsa! Delicious!

    Hope everyone is doing great! Keep fighting.

    Many hugs,

    Hey Jungledog, good to hear an update from you. I commend you on your ability to go through all that you're going through with a smile on your face. If you have to go up in kratom you have to do so. It's not our place to judge. We are see that you're really fighting and that's what's most important. You'll get there. Some say slow and steady wins the race. Just keep plugging along. Remember this won't last forever. Take good care of yourself. You have my support.

    hi hon,

    Why is exercise bad for adrenal fatigue? I think slowing down is very smart. I spoke with my Dr today and found out some interesting stuff about this shit and paws. I will post it on my journal.

    I think giving your body a break on going down so fast is smart. Glad your feeling a bit better and that hubby is picking up the slack. Sometimes you don't always have to be so strong, although I know you feel like you do. You are a good person.

    Lots of love my lovely friend xxoo

    There will be tattoos and roses, and I vote for the warm state, too!

    P.S. My Dr said that they are now requiring all patients on opiates (which he said was his whole practice) to have endocrine/hormone testing twice yearly. That's a smart move given opiates well documented effects on the endocrine system.
