    time for the daily update in case anyone is interested in detox timelines and such...

    halfway through day 10 sober, which is kinda nice, i like nice round numbers. its been basically 21 days since the whole process started with the quick methadone taper off my DOC, (oxycodone) and now 10 days completely clean. even managed to go without diazepam for several days now, which i gotta admit was starting to become a crutch for the anxiety over lost sleep.

    i do think i turned a corner as today my legs are significantly less weak than yesterday. There has been steady improvements day to day but from yesterday to today was the largest so far. Its great to be able to stand up for more than a few minutes without getting winded and having to sit down to rest. still far from being normal, but this little progress has done wonders for my motivation.

    on the sleeping front, i managed to get a good 5 hours of fitful sleep, the same as saturday nite, so i guess the problems on sunday nite were related to the drinks i had. still cant even think of falling asleep before 3am cos my legs jsut wont quiet down before then. but things are improving, so i cant complain, just gotta have patience.

    quick summary of left over symptoms at this point: bowels still kinda messed up but nothing troublesome, more on the side of underaction than overaction, which is kinda unexpected; random sneezing throughout the day ; excessive armpit sweating (very fricking annoying as it stinks and affects desire to be around people) ; slight body aches, but very manageable ; lethargy and energy drain ; and last but most important, the fricking RLS.
    its funny how each detox has its own "personality". My previous kick was all about explosive vomiting/runs and chills, while other symptoms were manageable. This time everything has been low/medium intensity except for the restless legs and insomnia. the lethargy things seems to be the only constant, if i remember right last time it lasted until halfway/end of the second week, very similar to what seems to be happening now.

    paregoric added 3 Minutes and 33 Seconds later...

    quick question, anyone else have problems with the armpit sweating? last times i kicked it lasted for months (more of a PAWS things) and was one of the triggers that sent me back to using, i was just sick of stinking all day long!lol

    seriously considering some shit like botox or somethings like that. ive tried pretty much every deodorant/anti antiperspirant and no luck.

    Yes man. I know all about the pit sweat deal. I just use lots more anti perspirant/ deodorant... Like every couple of hrs. Then it still dont work great. After a few applications with a day it starts to build up in your pits. So you got to take more baths. Its annoying as fuck but its only until your body adjust to a new dose or being clean. Your doing great. Keep it up.
