So i am finally at week 6 yyeeeeeaaaaa. It does feel like a long time ago i stared this journey and at the beginning i wont lie i did not think i could achieve what i feel is a great achivement to be at this stage in my tapering as i am now.
This week i am on just 4 8mg tabs 1 every 4 hours and to be honest i feel great. I have had a banging headache for the past 2 days which ibuprofen has not touched so im not too sure if it just 'that time of month' or if its due to my body and me taking pain killers regularly. i remember reading somewher if you take pain killers too much you can get a rebound headache which is through too many pain killers, so im not too sure but other than the headache im good. I have no achy legs i am sleeping and i am not depressed which was a worry of mine and i am really enjoying having more money and only visiting a pharmacy once a week. I am aslo really enjoying not having a time limit on my life and by that i mean clock watching for every 2 hours till the next lot of pills i now have time to go out to shops or friends house minus the pills which i did do and it felt great.
I still would really like to just completly stop now but i do worry that my body will still want even the smallest amount and i dont want to chance getting any kind of withdrawal and then that being a trigger for me to take more and then undo all my hard work. So i am going to stick to my plan, not too many weeks left. I do feel proud of myself and i now know i have it in me to achieve most things what i put my mind to.
I am so grateful to all you guys on here who have given me so much invaluable info and encouraced me on my journey. The end is in sight and i will make this.
