Today is day 12 of taking out 1 bead per day.  I have my boyfriend taking out the beads for me, and placing the meds in a pill box for me to take daily. (i can't open the capsules myself).  I feel okay, so far.  Nauseous one day, but good otherwise.

 

Should i start taking out more than one bead?  I'm impatient to get off this poison, but definitely terrified of withdrawal.  My capsules have over 300beads inside (60mg).... I'm thinking 2 beads each day for the next week?  Then 3 for the week after?  Or don't push it?

 

Thoughts?

I think your idea is perfect!! If at any time it gets too bad then just stay at that level until you feel ready to drop some more. Then start dropping a little slower.

Thanks guys!! 

 

It feels good knowing that less of this poison is going into my body every day.  I feel so validated knowing that I was not going crazy over the past year.

Hi again Umo,

Just wondering, when you say, let's say 1 bead per day, do you mean like one today, two tomorrow then three and so on? Or I bead everyday for a total of seven weekly?

Glad that you have a plan now

It always feels better when we have a plan because it helps us feel more in control of the situation.

 

Take care of you
