I'm glad the info is useful faith_hope_love.. and Congrats on 35 days our so :))
Dav it seems your ingenuity has payed off :)) what do they say about geniuses lol we still have the monster tomato plant producing tomatoes !! it has only been in the 40s during the day and freezing at night.. although not a lot of flavor for lack of sun they are good steamed peeled and cooked with :) we also have peppers that I have been throwing in everything !
Great articles, thanks all! I was taking Women's One a Day with extra calcium & vitamin D but once again (everytime I take a multi it seems) I get the digestive issues, constipation which I hate worse than anything. So, now I am just taking Cal-Mag-Zinc and a B-12 sublingual. You know, that multivitamin say's that for iron, it is only 18% of the recommended daily allowance. I must be super sensitive.
Since money is tight right now and I can't just go buy a ton of healthy foods, I have bought cans of tuna, eggs, cottage cheese, apples, bananas and oranges and I try to have 1 serving of each of those foods daily. Plus my protein shake and then lastly try to make sure I have something green each day. I hope that is decent for now. I really want my dopamine back!! ~grin~ Of course I mean I want my body to start making it again without opiates. :) It has been about 35 days or so since my last opiate so I know this takes time. Overall, I feel pretty durn good compared to the first time I did this years back.
Oh, glad to see black eyed peas on the list. My mom made this huge pot of them with ham and tomatoes on New Years and I must have ate 4 bowls in 1 day..lol. Guess my body was craving something in them.
Any advice that will help anywhere I am lacking is much appreciated too. lyn

You rock girl:)..I spotted the article and saw some helpful hints for those suffering from it in their wd process and most we all here about is Hyland's which works for some but didn't do anything for me...So I posted it for refeence....You just put the icing on the cake with the above...:).
Thank you for this. Although I only experience RLS in withdrawls (like right now..I swear I want to chop my legs off at the moment!!) I have a friend who deals with this on a regular basis and she's otherwise very healthy. I'll email the link to her.
RLS for me is one of the worst wd symptoms. It's awful and although I've been eating hylands restful legs all day long today my legs are just going nuts on me. Thankfully when I get through the wds it will go away but I really feel bad for people who deal with this on a normal basis. Hot baths help it a bit but as soon as I get out it starts again! Uggh. I hate it so much. That and the hot/cold stuff is bothering me a lot right now. One minute I'm sweating like a pig and the next I'm cranking up the heat in here. Wds suck so bad. Can't wait to be DONE!!
