Re: Progress with my local doctor?

Wow - wish I could clone them and their attitudes!

And, such good fortune for you. So glad to hear it.

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...

I watch two types of shows. The first type are the shows I can watch and do other things - water plants, clean, pace, knit, etc. These are Last Tango in Halifax, Hawaii 5-0, Madame Secretary, Call the Midwife, Longmire, Death in Paradise, NCIS, Jane the Virgin, Heartland, Flash the Legend, Grace and...
