I have difficulty taking medications long term. Hence I have been taking xanax occationally when I need a brake from my seasless disease. I have always hated it because that class of medication brings on depression in me if I have to take it more than two days in a row. Recently I had a whole rash of memories come up that I had successfully hiden from myself for 40 years. The good news is I guess I now remember because I have gotten healthy enough to handle it. The bad news is I don't know how and it is horrible. I took xanax for a brake but I really needed at least a few days. The doctor prescibed something that not only did not work to relieve my head but my legs felt so heavy I could barely walk and walking is something I definately need to be doing to relieve myself. It pissed me off and made me feel extemely hopeless. I ran into a friend and she gave me a suboxone tablet. This drug is used to aleviate opiate withdrawl symptoms. I took a quarter tablet and I was not only relieved but I rested very well. Why is it not being used or researched for more uses? I am totally pissed off. The class of psych drugs suck! They all are only thought to be long term with sick intolerable side effects. I seriously need a brake now and then, some kind of true releif. I feel it's out there but the doctors won't prescribe it. Like this woman, now she knew what I needed and she knew it would help. Thank God for her. Anyone ever tried it? Or heard of it?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
