Long time no post, sorry for that been busy with just living & trying to make my way through this world, I have stated working more, taken on more responsibility although part time self employed…
2 weeks throughout a 3 week pain management course been useful, thought not all that relevant for me. My family will not accept pain is a permeant disability & I thought I was in denial! Go figure, anyways I’m going to use 2nd quarter to push/fight way through to better health I need to lose weight. Cutting back on booze/weed I’m sure will help.
Which brings me to duloxetine withdrawal, I’m on 50mg/day.
I don’t see really anymore how it helps, in fact it makes life more complex for me, thus time to junk it. I have what I need from the above course etc to deal with pain.
My main concern is coming of this drug, I’m very sensitive to any meds, I get very bad nightmares, my temperament is totally out of character, I get very pissed off, which bad for a trained fighter I don’t want be so scary to people especially my family, where I’m planning to be whilst I withdraw.. This happens everytime change my dose.
PTSD can me make very pariod, hard to explain unless you experience it. Thought when it happens to me, don’t be near me, when I have bad day I get very pissed off.
I’m planning a 40mg drop this week, 30mg the week after, then 20 mg after that, then drop it days apart until I’m finally off it. I can’t wait… it is messing with my head big time.
I’d be very happy to hear any advice about coming off this drug. It is evils in many ways!
I’m back my bikes, working out, I’m fucked with weight lifting at the moment though I’ll figure it out, it just really makes very fucking angry that one my arms doesn’t work right. The rest I can live with!
I have found my TENS, Meditation, visulation to potent in recovery. I also do my physical therapy exercise help a lot, my fitbit is useful, my resting heart rate is dropping a lot right now.
Thanks guys, stay safe & happy
