To all of my newfound friends....
I just logged this morning and was overwhelmed by all of your words of encouragement, shared stories. I feel somehow more empowered and comforted. It's like you all have just wrapped a warm blanket around me. You all know that I'm still sick, but that you want to try and help make me better. I'm sending good thoughts to all of you out there who share this "bond".
I have a bit of good news, sort of. I used to take ultram with my coffee first thing in the morning. Like, I felt in order to function-I had to first pop that pill. For the past 3 days I haven't had any ultram at all during the day. It's a strange sort of dejavu feeling. It has brought back a vague recollection of ultram-free days. Me, going about my day-trudging through, just like everybody else. Not on a cloud, but on solid ground. I must say-when you take pain killers, it's supposed to numb the pain. But, in fact-it numbs your whole being-including your soul. I took a walk yesterday and smelled the glorious fresh snow. It's so crisp and clean. So mind clearing. It gave me this burst of, I guess you could call it-energy!
I accomplished more yesterday than I have in about a month. But, today is today. And I haven't taken any ultram so far. That's about the only thing I'm sure of. These are real baby steps here, I know-but steps forward at least. I think I'm going to go out and smell the snow again,right now-while I still have the urge. I haven't noticed things like the weather in so long, it all feels new to me. I'm sending you all good thoughts, you are all heros.

Ultrapped, I had the deja vu moments you were talking about. When I stopped drinking, I felt my body remembering how things were before. It was very helpful. And, you're right about numbing the soul. I began drinking as self-medication and shocked at how quickly I lost myself to alcohol. Hang in there and keep going.
Hugs and love,

Numbing our soul, that is a great way to put it.
I am so happy for you and so glad that you have joined us here. We are all on the same recovery journey together.
I know more about how to live than I did yesterday, but not as much as I'll know tomorrow. Today, Ill learn something new~JFT, 1/27/06
