Re: gabapentin. 600mg. Tapering off

Thank you guess it is useless for me to be here. I don't think anyone is saying that. I think we are saying that we need to determine the "true" cause of the problem and then solve it. Have you ever answered any questions related to RLS to determine if that is what you have for sure? It c...

Re: Progress with my local doctor?

Wow - wish I could clone them and their attitudes!

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I also was wondering if you are getting tolerant...not fun, but at least you can solve that.

Re: methadone long-term

I went two months without any opioids about 8 months ago. I am going to do it again soon, then see if I can switch to a shorter acting opioid and then switch between opioids and dopamine agonists.

Re: Intermittent Fasting

No overstepping at all :-).

It is so hard for so many of us to find some equilibrium about weight and food. I also never want/need to be waif slim, but I do want to be healthier. I focus on eating well for my main calories, getting exercise, and the fasting helps with the rest.

Re: Next Foundation Webinar - Opioid Advocacy

THIS ^ alone is good reason that we all should be Foundation members at whatever level we can support. $5? Send it! $50? Yup. $500? All is appreciated and used wisely. I shudder to think how little doctors and the general public would know if the Foundation wasn't doing its thing. What they do is a...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Ann .... why keep some larger pieces 'just in case'... for a fat day, for a fat week/month. You are a lady of determination. You won't need them. :clap: As someone who has struggled with weight since she was a child, determination may not have anything to do with it! If I choose this as a way of ea...

Re: Intermittent Fasting Update

I have now been doing this steadily for about a year. Before that is was occasionally. I keep losing weight at a regular rate - about 2-3 pounds a month. It's not fast, but it's regular and I've not gained, even when I've had a few days where I didn't fast. I had my bloodwork done recently - my chol...

Re: methadone long-term

I do - but it happens much more quickly for me. I usually get tolerance in under a year. I have to stop it occasionally to prevent it. Not fun at all.

Re: Whacha readin?

I have Marcella on my list. I do not have La Mante on it. More to add! Our PBS - Public Broadcast System - stations are pretty good about airing BBC shows. But, mostly, I watch them on Netflix. Another gritty one that is excellent is from Australia. Yet, I cannot think of the name of it...I will. Ev...
