Hi seven100 and friends. I’m so glad to hear you are feeling better! I have noticed that tolerance breaks are just as unpredictable and subjective as kratom is! My breaks are NEVER the same. Similar but different each time. I look forward to hearing about your first few uses IF NEEDED! Very cool.
Laurie

Hi Acer, I don't know either. I wish I did. I wasn't taking any narcotics. They were giving me tamiflu which is supposed to help with aches and pains and such but I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a narcotic in it. It's just an anti-viral of some sort. I wouldn't say my experience was painless, lol, just a lot less uncomfortable than I expected. Maybe that was part of it too. Maybe my expectations were such that the reality just wasn't all that bad.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!

Hey seven, interesting experience- wish my t-breaks were as painless as yours has been so far. As far as I remember, there have been studies on neurotransmitter release when in new environments. Subjects who were taking drugs in environments that were regular spots for them had a measurably higher tolerance to those drugs than in brand new environments. Maybe the scenery change, combined with everything that was going on at the hospital, as well as the steroids easing your pain which normally stands out all helped contribute to the lack of withdrawal symptoms? I'm not sure if the steroids could do this, or maybe another drug they might have prescribed, but in general non-narcotic nervous system depressants such as clonidine can greatly ease withdrawal symptoms since they calm down the overactivity that usually occurs upon cessation of taking something like kratom which gets your brain used to being a little sedated.

Absolutely! We always make it with apple-cider vinegar, red pepper flakes and molasses for just a hint of sweetness.

Hi Michele, thanks for the well-wishes. As I think about this more I believe that I might have really underestimated the healing properties of sleep. One of the worst problems for me when taking a kratom break has always been the insomnia. Lack of sleep from that often leaves me so exhausted that I just want to give up and give in. Right now though, I'm worn out enough at night that I fall asleep easily and nothing wakes me. It's good solid rest and it feels great. I'm wondering if just that one aspect of the whole thing could make that much difference?

Awesome job on your reset! I'm not sure how long I will stretch this break out, but for now I'm not having any shoulder pain, so I'm going to leave everything on the shelf and see how it goes day by day.

Leafy greens for the win! My guy brought me home from the hospital and asked what I wanted for dinner. Somebody out there will think this is gross, but I had him make me a big pot of collard greens cooked with a smoked turkey wing and a pan of cornbread. I'm not really eating a lot, but I love the cornbread soaked in the pot likker when my stomach starts growling.

hey seven!

glad you got reintroduced, so to speak. I find this interesting too. I as well think its the steroids, and well partly cause you just ARE better as a whole. a combination and synergy in knocking the bad out of you just might make you better as a whole in the longrun!!

maybe your lungs were effected and your pain you just attributed it more to your shoulder and such. not sure, but if it worked its awesome.

I just got off a full 4 week reset, and I measured almost all my does. some kratom I took 8 to 9 grams for it to be effective. I didn't have withdraws. I was sick within a few days but it was the flu, not your traditional kratom stuff. but for a few days right after I was fine. took stem/ vein and akuamma and stuff. uncomfortable but not unbearable. but I wasn't working either so that made it easier.

hope you feel better. take some good self care. diffuse peppermint oil or lavender or something. take some prebiotics or keifer. lots of leafy greens and garlic and such. ive had to get iv antibiotics. not fun. drained me. get well :)
