I’m writing this down, because its a good day today. The Black Dog is circling because the fentanyl patch is a day and a bit past discharged, but it’s a controlled decrease, and that’s a hell of an improvement over cold turkey!
The Digesic and Oxycodone (4 & 2 tabs respectively, before and after dinner) seems to be just about spot-on – pretty mild nausea (managing without dope OK!), and the brain’s a bit light & fluffy, but some Bill Maher on YouTube and the lolly jar will be my prescription. I wasn’t going to write anything else tonight anyway.
So, dear diary, I can categorically state for the record, that I am officially pain-free for the very first time this year! What a great day. I love the occasional unexpected pleasure!
