☼ Happy2Heal: Hope I'm doing this right

Recommended Posts

quick update:

was eating very poorly for about a week- all kinds of high fat, high sugar foods and things I don't normally eat.

It was an experiment to see how that might affect things.

 

well, it didn't make any difference in WD/recovery symptoms but Sat night I ate something at a Bingo game, that gave me food poisoning (severe stomach cramps and diarrhea, omgoodness it was bad!) I spent most of Sunday sleeping off and on when I could, in between runs to the bathroom.

 I even  managed to get some sleep off and on last night, which surprised me, since I spent so much time laying down during the day. 

 

my stomach's finally settled down after a day of just water.  I think  I'm going to keep doing a water fast for another day or so, just to clean things out and give my digestive tract a rest.  I'll see how it goes, if I get too hungry, I'll just add back some bland foods like oatmeal.

 

as far as the "10 month" wave goes, it seems to be over, knock wood.:)

 

it was up and down there for awhile and I was a bit discouraged but feeling on much more solid ground now.

whew!

Hi H2H ,

It's been a while since we've spoke , but I wanted to express how thrilled I am to see you recovering so well . I recently got bored with my diet and had Waffle House 5 days in a row , and now I'm realizing it's ok to be bored ..

Oh pretty rough . Just trying to stack the days together and let things play out without becoming to terribly distraught . It's tough though . As time goes by things seem to be tougher to manage , which doesn't surprise me ..

oh sorry to hear that

 

I pray things settle down for you soon.

it will happen, but damn it takes so long!
I know

I am able to look back now to the last 5 yrs, when I was going up and down in my dose a lot and I see that basically threw me into withdrawal but I didn't even know it.

I did so many stupid things during that time, trying to get a handle on why I was feeling so bad.

 

Finding SA was the best thing that happened to me- I FINALLY found out what was wrong.

it's been pretty unpleasant going thru WD/recovery but it's been worth it, because I"m finally free and mostly healed.


I know for me, sometimes making a change in my environment or my daily activities helped to make the symptoms seem less "always there/always grinding at me"- if you know what I mean?
I guess the novelty was a good distraction. I don't know.

 

maybe you can try to plan something fun?

 

I hate hearing that ppl are still not doing well, I just want to reach out and hug everyone and make it all better

 

make all the bad stuff just go the eff away, you know?

 

but it will, it will!
