Hi friends!  I'm so tired today. No energy. I think that I did too much this weekend? It was a great weekend but, I'm definitely paying the price. When will I get my energy back? It's like, I have no motivation today. But, I'd rather take the " no energy" vs. being chained to pills any day.

Toothfairie- thank you for the love and support. Hmmm... I'll have to check out the B12 liquid sublingual. I've heard on here that it helps with the energy. Bear- my favorite BEAR! Thank you so much for for the amazing advice. It's crazy because the mental withdrawals are way harder than the physical w/d, IMO. For the mental, I get the crazy cravings, insane emotions, foggy brain, no motivation and soo tired. Than, I 'll have a day where I feel " good" but, you're 100 percent right! I'll take all of these crazy withdrawals vs. chasing pills. I am so proud of you. 47 days is FABULOUS just like you ;) I love you too!

Teri- hey girl! How are doing? I go out and walk/ work out everyday. Especially, during my detox. Today, I took my son and dog to the park. We were their for awhile. I'm just so out of it today. I told my husband " I just need to get to day 30" so, I agree with u. Lizbuzz- thanks love for the support! I tell myself everyday " I got this" however, today is a " low" day. On the bright side, today is almost over and tomorrow is a new day, thank god! and yes it felt wonderful not worrying about pills this weekend. Ann- yes, I take L- tyrosine every morning and b12 and my multi vitamin. Is just one of those days lol ric- thank you my friend for the support ad advice. Lol bubblepirahna! You're so silly!!! :p

You will get it back over the next several days . A lot of healing is taking place now and when I noticed the energy crash I also noticed a marked improvement in the quality and amount of sleep I was getting. I could fall asleep walking LOL  ...and it was a welcome change from the high anxiety and revved up mind state of the first 10-20 days    You are doing great bubblepirahna !!   ;))

The no energy part is difficult.  Has anyone told you about L-Tyrosine?  You can get that at a vitamin store.  I have heard from other people that it really works.  I bought some but I honestly don't remember if it helped (two years ago).

Hand in there.  Just remember, life off the pills is so much better.  Every day was a grey overcast day when taking pills and now the sun is shining again.  I never appreciated the sun shining until I had feelings again.

It will come back I think it depends on us as individuals and I am starting to realize that for as long as I abused my body I have to give it time to heal to..and as for the pills isn't nice to have a good weekend with out worrying if you have enough pills? You got this girl you got this.
