    A Little Over 3 Months Out..

    Thank you guys so much.. I have been trying to update my pics but the gallery always says my pics are to big. But when I resize them they are so tiny.. lol I cant win.. I am doing ok. I just went to my 3 month check up (even though I am closer to 4 months) and Doc says evrything is good. Which is a huge surprise to me cause I am struggling w EVERYTHING.. But all my labs were good. I have not been working out at all and I am slacking on alot. I have good days and bad days...

    Do you have a Blogspot??

    I followed everyone. I am still new to blogging. But I really like it. I think it is cool to follow other people and see a little bit into there lives and I don't feel so alone with all my struggles. I have to figure out how to add some progression photos even though I haven't progressed to much.. Lol

    any new post op's here?

    Hey, I am so psyched we have the same date... I have been looking for a surgery buddy but everyone around my date was done a few days before me.. Lol How are you doing? I am hanging in there. It is really hard mentally more than anything. In my opinion. I am trying to get all my liquids in but I cant seem to find something I like drinking enough to get to 64oz. I have tried a ton of different sf drinks and nothing thrills me so far. It is a working progress I guess.. Well it is really nice to meet you. Welcome.. Nikki

    stress, sadness, and trasfer addictions

    Hey Xan, I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. I can't imagine how hard that must be. I of all people know how easy it is to cope with the pain but using pills. Like another poster said Try not to let them put you on methadone. As a few people know I am currently on it and it does allow me to live comfortably BUT it is harder to kick than the actual pills them self. I am only on 5 mg. But if I were to stop cold turkey I would probably withdraw for 2 weeks to 3 months. Everyone is different. I wish I would have know all the facts before I started. I am bringing myself slowly off of it but at some point I will have to withdraw. Even if it is only 1mg. I think a lot of it is mental too. Well for me anyway. Once you get used to doing something whether it is good or bad it is hard to stop. When you try to quit you physically get sick and at that point you have to keep doing it just to feel "Normal". I am sorry all of this has happened to you. But you are a strong person and it will get better. At least you know that you have a problem and you are addressing it. A lot of people who get addicted to pain meds don't think they are addicted because they have real pain. Well it doesn't matter how you got addicted once you are you will have pain when you try to stop and I don't think they understand that. My worst problem when I went into withdrawal was I could not sleep and I felt like I was trapped in my own body. It is a horrible feeling and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. My thoughts are with you. Any questions you have please feel free to ask. (((((((( HUGS)))))))))) Nikki xoxoxoxo
