    well, a couple more hours and its 2 weeks sober. i know its something to be celebrated but my mood is so all over the place that i dont really care at the moment. it seems ive fallen into a pattern of good day/bad day/ good day/ bad day...repeat...
    while yesterday was a good day, today woke up feeling like shit and ive been craving a pill like crazy. for me the craving comes in the form of a thirst that just doesnt go away no matter what i drink or eat.
    like i mentioned yesterday, all ive really got left symptom wise is some RLS, which kicks up between 9PM-2am, and the lack of energy and motivation to do anything. ive been forcing myself to do stuff, but its exactly that, i have to be forced, or else would stay in bed all day.

    seriously, what the hell, i went to the kithcen to make some lunch i am completely wiped. My legs started getting wobly and i just collpased back into bed. just thinking of moving is tiring. i feel today like i slipped back to the first couple of days of withdrawal, energy wise. this sucks, i had been hoping to get something productive done today, not gonna happen. not sure how much of this is real and how much is me just psyching myself out.

    Cut yourself a little slack. Its completely normal to take two steps forward and one step back. Its normal to gets impatient with the process too!!! Maybe later in the day you will find a little energy. Remember that you haven't been sleeping very well and your brain is not very happy.
    Try to think if you might have done something different that has been helping you that you haven't done in the last day or three. Diet? Exercise? Vitamins?
    Congrats on 2 weeks! You really are doing very well!
