Well, today is eleven weeks. I'd like to say that I feel much better and that my head is clear and I'm getting sooooo much more done, but none of that is true. Okay, I have gotten a few things done...I read a good book (Bossypants, by Tina Fey) and have managed to paint my dining room and most of my living room. Oh, and I planted basil and it hasn't died yet.
That's about it.

Eric...
You must be proud of yourself
Btw..have you lost. Weight?
Why not post. An up to date photo?

I've been on painkillers (oxycodone) for five years because of my rheumatoid arthritis. Last week, my md and I decided to start tapering off. I thought it would be so easy. It isn't. I went in shrugging, thinking that logically? It was about time. And now...a few days later...I am seeing that an addict is an addict is an addict. We'll get through this, Eric. Yes?

Yes, we will, Maria. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Hi, John. I've lost about 16 pounds since I stopped drinking, but now seem to be stuck, in spite of eating better and exercise. I'm ramping up the workouts and trying to do better on the diet, so hopefully I can get some more of this weight off and feel more human.
