Just a quick note to say hi! I hope you have a great time on your date!!! Wow, a whole year huh? That's a long time. Is this someone you have known for a while or not? So if you don't mind me asking........Just where is Crazytown???? You should do the Sounders game for your date, it was a BLAST last week and they play again this Saturday. My wife 'HATES' sports but had an awesome time and can't wait to go again!!!!! Go figure........ She bought me season tickets for Christmas (bought 5) so we can all go, my kids are 19,17 and 13 and me being from England I'm soccer mad!!! Let me know how your date goes. Have fun!!!!
Talk to you soon.
Brian.

Just a quick note to say hi! Great to hear from you and my mind can be at rest now!!! I would have to say I'm in the blah stage too. Came back from Mexico and within a week we both got some kinda flu bug thats lasted a week but is finally on it's way out thankfully. It felts like starting the W/Ds all over again............ No thanks that's for sure. How is your sleep doing now? Mine is almost back to normal albeit taking amitriptylene 75mg at bedtime which I find works better than ambien or lunesta. Did you see my journal about my Dr's appt from hell? I still can't believe it happened at this point, he pretty much told me no more pain meds higher than I'm currently on and I don't go back to work until April 6th. That will be the big test for me to see how much pain I'll be in.

Just a quick note to say hi! Had a great time in Mexico the weather was gorgeous and HOT!!!! Freezing my arse off now!!! I heard we had snow while I was gone!!! I was so cold at the airport last night in my shorts t-shirt and flip-flops!!!! I was reading your post late last night and wanted to try and encourage you if I can. The ups and downs are part of what we are going through with this powerful drug we are trying to banish. I am the same way I believe, happy one minute then totally down the next, quite emotional at times as well. Whether it's you reaching for vodka or me reaching for Endocet (as I have in my clean 31 days) it's a coping mechanism I think but than in time when we fully adjust we wont look for a replacement as much which is what I'm thinking and how I rationalize things.

Thank you for everything! I sure appreciate the kind words. I am so mentally spent today from yesterday that I actually fell asleep on the couch in the afternoon, first time in about a month that has happened!!!! As for eating I am exactly the opposite. When on the METH......I couldn't get enough sweet things in me!!! I think I gained about 30 lbs on it. I was eating like 10 toosie pops DAILY!!!!! Now I'm off METH I have also quit sugar, and my appetite has been way down since quitting for some reason? Maybe W/Ds? I don't know. They put me on vistaril to help with the nausea but it didn't do anything.
Are you noticing yet how much clearer your head feels now you are off this ****? It blows my mind actually that I didn't realize I was in such a mental fog all the time.

Just a quick note to say hi! I'm doing ok apart from the fact that one of my dogs passed away today in my sons arms, very traumatic to say the least. Didn't realize it would be so hard to lose a pet this way, I balled like a baby uncontrollably.
She was just a little Yorkshire Terrier and I had her for twelve years.
How are you doing today? Did you get any better sleep last night?

You are soooooo funny! I do the same thing, eat eat eat. I'm only 120 but I'd put money on it that I'll be 220 in a month. I have nothing else to do, besides drink my good old wine!!!! Thanks for making me laugh!
Talk to you soon!

Just a quick note to say hi! Hey girl hows things going????? Is the sleep returning yet? I really hope so! Mine seems to be getting better and better each day. Let me know how you are doing. It feels so GOOD to be off this **** and my mind feels so much clearer than ever before on Methadone, no more nodding off at night like I did on Methadone. It feels so good to know I am getting some control back into my life.

Thank you for everything!  I am glad that you are doing so well, I am in a bad place, or I will be.  I will run out of my pain meds about 4 days ahead of schedule.  So, my question to you is... how did you handle or what did you do when you first stopped your meds?  like how did you handle the chills and the adjetation (spelling?!)  bowl problems, and the overall yucky feeling?  i know that is what i am gonna go through and if i had a few ideas that would help that would be great.  I already know the pain will be awful to but, i can handle that better than withdrawl symptoms.   thank you for any help or ideas.......still freezing in montana

Just a quick note to say hi! How was the elusive sleep last night for you? I slept a little better last night but still nowhere near what it should be. I believe this is this drugs last all out assault on our bodies and minds to get us to get back on it. Stay strong as I know you will, it helps me to know you are going the same thing as me and that we are not in this alone. Many others have done it before us and many will do it after. Hopefully we can help someone in the future?
Hang in there!!!! I'm rootin for ya big style!!!! Have you ever gone to NA meetings? I never have but have been thinking about it but don't know much about it.

Just read your latest post. Sounds like we are both going through identical symptoms. I got NO sleep last night and came very close to going back. I don't know if I can no sleep for much longer. How are you coping with that?

I just had a question for you.  I wanted to know, I feel foolish and silly asking you this question but, oh well here goes.  I don't want to go into details how this came to be but, when you started to lower your dose and than quit taking them all togther did you ever start to have 'ugly' dreams?  What I mean by 'ugly' dreams is that you go to bed with the thought in mind that you know it is gonna be tough and you might feel sick but you will make it - self talk.  And than you dream that you have a bunch of pills - the good kind and you have like a whole bunch.  Did this or does this ever happen to you?

Thank you for the support!! Today is day four and I'm at about 104 hours since my last 5mg dose. A nurse at the pain clinic I'm at told me that the half life of methadone is 24-48 hours and I may not have the serious w/ds until after 96 hours? Does this sound normal? I feel like I have the flu and slepped maybe two hours last night if I was lucky. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.
Brian.

Just a quick note to say hi!  I am really proud of you, so many people do not have the will power and inner strength to do what you are doing even if they go througth rehab and have assistance.  My mom always says that it all has to do with your mind and if you put your mind to it than you will beable to do anything you put your mind to.  Keep up the good work, I am really proud of you and happy for you.  Congratulations and YES go for a jog and breath some fresh air into your lungs and just remember that this is the beginning of a whole new life for you!!!  Looking forward to chatting with you later.......until then -- MontanaGurl

  Skoochie,
         How excited you must be, transformation is never an easy road and you appear to have lot's of heart. Our battles are won first in our heart, so fight the good fight. I will remember you when I pray, we give each other something through this. I pray for you to be blessed on your road, and you give me the joy of seeing you on that road. Like all roads at some point there is no turning back. Stay on this road even if you fall stand up and walk it. The other road has an end that is uncertain, this road however takes you home where the love and joy of all that is Skoochie awaits....peace

No prob Skooch! (cool name!) I know that methadone is a b**** to quit but you are going to make it, just go at the right pace. Dont push it faster than your mind and body is telling you because it can put you in a dangerous place. I am sure you already know this but I will tell you anyways.
Peace
