Ok folks, I am, in fact, fairly computer savvy, but having not done much by way of message boards before now, not sure if this is the right way to post my next bit of comment on this thread. Thankfully, I'm sure you guys will get it anyway :) Today has been such a mixed bag. Thanks to everyone who referenced the sample plan; I can assure you it helped me earlier. For months, probably a year or 2 at this point honestly, I couldn't even get out of bed before popping a pill. Would do that like it was my first awakened breath, then sit till it took effect, then get on with my day. Well yesterday I really got hardcore on my vitamins, minerals, tolerable foods, etc. And low & behold, this morning, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I was able to get right out of bed, get ready and dressed, and make it to the bank and a couple errands--all w/o that first pill of the day (only on 1/2 a pill, twice a day now, but you know what I meant). I was so proud of myself, and actually got kinda excited--like the light at the end of this tunnel was finally visible.

I take nothing away from that, and I treasure this first really sober morning after so long. But then the flipside hit. Tried to eat shortly after getting back and couldn't. All the crummies kinda started up again, maybe as if to remind me that I'm not out of the woods yet, and not to take a single thing for granted. Is it "normal" or common in this process, especially being 10 days into detox, to have this mixed bag? To go days w/o some of those preliminary detox symptoms I originally had, and then have some of them come back again? I'd so appreciate any feedback anyone might have on this. Quite frankly, it scares me to think this could be my up & down roller coaster long after I finish the opiate part of the detox. I am still taking my vitaveetavegamins lol, and won't stop. But maybe others have more ideas or experiences of how they dealt with these up & down days that can help. As always, thanks for taking the time to read my deal, and for any help that may follow :)
