Day 9 here.
9 days clean off oxy and 4 days clean off methedone.
Slept some last night, major pain most of the night but feel 10 times better right now. Pain in legs is almost gone and I have some energy. Can actually sit at my desk with little pain I feel great. Gonna go to exito and get all vitaimins and amino acids sugggested. I think that fish soup with carrots, potatoes,platanoes and rice I managed to keep down yesterday helped ALOT. Also I was able to get some sleep. I can my body recovery quickily.
Oh yes, fish with it's Omega fatty acids is vital in brain function and healing. I take fish oil caps everyday for bipolar, it helps for sure. Those lipids make up the majority of our brain, other than water. I couldn't eat or sleep so soon, you are doing great. Keep adding the good stuff and let the bad stuff get further in the past. Way to go bud!
Just got back from the supermarket with all kinds of goodies, pretty much everything suggested here.
I also broke down and bought a bunch of valiums o diazipan. They are helping me relax thats for sure.
The benzos work better after the worst of detox passes. Valium did nothing for me in acute detox. Wide awake and waiting I did! You have a decent plan and seem ready. Remember it's a marathon not a sprint and look for progress rather than perfection. It will keep getting better, too many have proven it and profess it's true. Keep on truckin.' I never met an old school opiate addict who thinks it's worth it, we had our fun and the thrill is gone. Keep your eyes on the prize!
I totally agree I was in so much pain 1st few days nothing except more oxy would have helped anyway. I just had to suffer through it and suffer through it I did. All in all lost about 10 lbs 1st week.
Now I am slowly gaining it back thanks to my gf's wonderfull and thoughtful cooking. The diazipan sure helps relax the legs and I suspect I will sleep well tonight.
I need it. too much tosing and turning last night. I will report on my progress tomorrow it will be 10 days off the oxy!!!
thanks again weaver71 I really appreciate it.
Congratulations you are making great progress!!! Don't stop now, you realized you had to stop, you did!! That's huge the worst is behind, just think of it as a bad flu, your body is healing, the human body is remarkable what it can overcome!!! I've been clean now 16days from eating 120mgs of Percs a day and those first 3 days are hell, no sleep, restlessness, puking, sweating, aches, yawning etc,,, but each day gets soo much better congratulations keep it going your almost thru this!!!
