Emotional Withdrawals/ Side-Effects?

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF MG

Emotional Withdrawals/Side-Effects/Myasthenia Gravis

Since I don’t know if I am dealing with Emotional Withdrawals, Side-Effects, or if it is Myasthenia Gravis, I will take them one by one.

I must admit I’m also haunted by the teaching that you stop maturing emotionally when you become addicted. I just don’t know!

While going through opioid withdrawals I was at the stage where I was breaking my Oxycodone in half at each dosage every 6 hours and taking 4 drops of 1000mg. CBD Oil every 6 hours, when I developed unreasonable, constant anger.

I decided it was a side-effect of the CBD on the Risperidone and stopped the Risperidone.

I had to choose between the Risperidone and the CBD and the CBD was handling my severe anxiety and intense pain so that I could stay off the Diazepam (Valium), and come off the Oxycodone.

Later, I found I needed some Risperidone, so I took 2mg. instead of 4mg. Thus, I found cutting my Risperidone dosage in half was better with the CBD oil and Lyrica.

Librax benzo

After having gone through the physical symptoms of opioid withdrawals, I am in the midst of some anger that is hard to cope with.

The quick flash of temper, repetitive thoughts, and restlessness that is unusual for me I truly believe are side-effects of the meds interacting with each other.

A physician who is learned in pharmacology advised me the Librax I was taking had:   
Quote: “Librax contains chlordiazepoxide (benzodiazepine group medicine) which is likely interacted with Lyrica and caused side effects like difficulty concentrating, thoughts and movements.” End Quote., Dr. Malik.

CBD – Lyrica – Librax

Realizing CBD was boosting the therapeutic effect of the Lyrica and Librax, causing the Librax to act with side-effects, I stopped the Librax. Most of the unwanted side-effects began cessation after about four days, and I was pleased.

The chlordiazepoxide benzo, I didn’t know that is what I had been taking, and I stopped it when I found out. The Librax had not achieved the symptomatic relief for which it was intended anyway.

Thus, the initial side-effects of the Librax on the Lyrica and the CBD on all my medications was learned. CBD has a cumulative effect on medication, causing substances to accumulate in the liver instead of routinely pass as they should.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CBD

Bipolar  –  Emotional Maturity

Bipolar 1 and Emotional Maturity, or Immaturity, can feel the same for me from the position of the patient! Anger management expectation for a thirty-nine-year-old and a sixty-seven year old can be entirely different.

At the time an agitated Depression State that is borderline Mania can feel very much like anger.

Here is a good place to tell you Bipolar 1 that make bad decisions during the cold anger of agitated Depression to never be convinced you are Borderline. There is nothing wrong with being Borderline if that is what you are.

Although if you need Bipolar medication you need to stay diagnosed by a qualified medical professional as Bipolar.

MG Difficulty Talking or Vocal Cord Surgery

I have to make a conscious decision to talk plainly to be understood by my husband, partly because of my voice and partly his hearing. I don’t know if it is the difficulty in speaking due to the Myasthenia Gravis symptoms such as facial paralysis, muscle weakness, and hoarse voice.  polyps removed from my vocal cords, causing damage

I also have difficulty making myself heard and understood because I had vocal cord surgery a few years ago; polyps removed from my vocal cords, causing damage.

Following surgery for several weeks or months, it seems like, I had to go to Speech Therapy. Vowel sounds softly spoken after weeks of saying nothing. Then harsher consonants, rich, throaty sounds that hurt your throat if spoken with too much force of air!

Myasthenia Gravis Diagnosis

I did not do all of the home exercises with my voice because I was quickly fatigued now. It seemed I didn’t have to do much of anything to become exhausted.

So when I had double-vision and the other symptoms that led my doctors to diagnose the Myasthenia and tell me any exercise was not profitable for me, I was relieved to stop the voice exercises.

That was in 2008, so now in 2018 I have been taking CBD oil, and the pain is so much better.

My anxiety is under control; the pain is being dealt with by the CBD and another non-addictive anti-inflammatory, Diclofenac SOD DR 75mg TAB.

My base pain medication is still Lyrica, but it is staying at the reduced dosage of 100mg. three times a day.

CBD Oil and CBD Pain Rub

CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and increases the effect of the Lyrica onboard. So I am receiving plenty of pain relief without sedation!

CBD impressed me so much I bought it to take myself and gave it to my family, including my chihuahua. I decided to become an affiliate of CBD BioCare.com and sell their CBD Products.

August 24th, One Month Of Withdrawals

After you go thru your first month of opioid withdrawals successfully, you begin to believe in your yourself.

After First Month of Withdrawals

After your first month of opioid withdrawals, you begin to believe in yourself. You have been thru something very few people have attempted successfully.

Withdrawals are not over, and I know it, but the flu-like symptoms, cold chills, nausea, and diarrhea are over.

The emotions that stopped maturing when I got addicted to the first opioid in 1990, started breaking free on me last week in anger. I had been warned I might have to deal with anger and depression at some point during withdrawals.

I began to have constant anger, a quick temper, and no patience with anyone around me.

Bipolar 1 – Manic-Depressive Episodes

Not only was there and still are false emotions to cope with, but I have Bipolar 1. This causes manic-depressive episodes which includes great fluctuations in mood and emotions.

Having coped with depression all of my life, I am ready to deal with it when it rears its ugly head.

I take medications for the Bipolar 1 and Anxiety that are mood control and anti-psychotic drugs. The Risperidone built up in my body, I think the best way to explain it is the way grapefruit causes a reduction in the release of substances from the kidneys and liver.

The CBD has the same effect on medications for me as a grapefruit and its juice.

I had to take less Risperidone to lessen the anger for it was a side-effect of the CBD and the Risperidone being contraindicated for it was building up in me and reacting due to the unmeasured anti-psychotic effect of the CBD.

A couple of weeks battling intense anger due to the medication confusion wore me out almost thoroughly.

A person with MG is active  and the muscles where the activity occurred can become temporarily paralyzed.
Myasthenia Gravis and Activity

Myasthenia Gravis and Life

No matter what else one is doing, if you have Myasthenia Gravis, you will not be allowed to forget that fact. If you do, you will surely be reminded when you get up and try to go to the bathroom or kitchen!

I can’t use large muscles very much; like walking, standing, or sitting straight up and riding in a vehicle.

Pretty much being anywhere besides my favorite recliner or bed just does not work for me. With the weakened muscles from the MG, I get so very tired going just one room away from my chair.

Although I don’t know when it started, I was diagnosed in 2008 when I developed double-vision. It has been a fast-moving ten years, I guess I was partly in a drug fog.

Fibromyalgia Fog and Drug Fog

If you have Fibromyalgia, then you have Fibro Fog where you have periods of time where, (and it is different with everyone), you are confused, can’t remember things, your thoughts are cloudy, and I guess that’s why they call it a  Fibro Fog.

My doctor told me in 2002 that he had watched me for twelve years and I had Fibromyalgia, so by now; I have severe Fibromyalgia and some nerve and neuropathy pain.

LYRICA (PREGABALIN)

Lyrica, Fibromyalgia, and Nerve Pain

Lyrica is an awesome medication for nerve pain for Fibromyalgia! I ran out of it once and thought I couldn’t afford to get it refilled so I went for sixteen days without it. When it got all the way out of my system, I ached all over, deep down, in my joints, and in my bones themselves.

My muscles jerked and hurt, I couldn’t sleep, so I lay there, and just gritted my teeth until I wept.

And that is while I was taking Oxycodone every 6 hours, so I genuinely don’t want to have to give up on Lyrica as my main pain medication. But, I might have to if it is causing me such harmful side effects!

I have reason to believe Lyrica is not reacting well to the CBD oil in my Endo-Cannabinoid System.

ENDO-CANNABINOID SYSTEM PARTIAL STUDY

Endo-Cannabinoid System and CBD

The CBD is causing such amazing changes for me day by day that I can’t give it up! I need to find medications that will work well with it, or I don’t need them.

For one thing, CBD has taken me through thirty-one days of opioid withdrawals,  from July 24th til now, August 25, 2018.

I found one of my Ulcerative Colitis medications was a benzo. The Librax I was taking as a medication for gastric problems was a Fall Hazard, and my insurance wouldn’t pay for it. I had to get it on a discount card, which I was very thankful for, believe me!

It reacted against my Lyrica, and it was the Librax that had to go and not the Lyrica! Thank God.

Lyrica is an anti-inflammatory which goes a long way with arthritis and Fibromyalgia nerve pain and neuropathy. CBD is an anti-inflammatory that acts well with the endocannabinoid system in the human and animal body.

CBD serves well in the gastric system if you have problems such as IBS or Colitis as I do.

Opioid Withdrawals Over? Sixth Day

Today is the sixth day of full withdrawals and I am wondering, are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before.

Are Opioids Withdrawals Over? Sixth Day

Today is the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals and I am wondering are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before, and I felt like writing and thinking. The amazing thing is sleeping all night for the first time in many years, in fact, I don’t remember when?

I did not waken in terrible pain, and thank God that has not happened since I started taking the CBD oil! So, I am going to stay thrilled with CBD! There are no cravings for the opioid Oxycodone, and the physical symptoms of my body throwing off the drug are mild and controllable.

I have helped my body and CBD oil control the symptoms with what works for me under stressful conditions. I considered the flu-like symptoms though they were moderate like they were the real flu and took over the counter flu, fever, and diarrhea medications. The ones that I usually took with my prescribed medications.

Opioid given by prescription for 28 years.
Craving the Opioid or the Narcotic 

Lest you think I don’t know what craving is or am lying to you about not craving the opioid or narcotic, I was on them both for twenty-eight years and depended on them like life’s breath! I became so completely done with what I needed so seriously depending on a physician’s decision to say “yes” or “no” with his pen that I had enough!

February 25, 2018, was the last day I took Diazepam (Valium), forever, God willing! I don’t ever want to go back on them, they are so seductive and quickly addictive. That has been five months! I’m here to tell you those first two months were long months.

Mentally, I still have thought flashes when I think “Now, would be a good time for a Diazepam!” But I quickly shove it aside with a “You are doing just fine, hang in there!” and I do okay!

With my pain and anxiety like it is or less, I am so completely thankful for what CBD has done for me already, and what it is doing!

Smoking is addicting!
Smoking Is Addicting!
Addicted and Craving Nicotone

I want to write and I can’t because I have to get up and go to the computer to put my e-cigarette batteries on to charge. That is what a craving does! It interferes in all aspects of your life! I know because I have been smoking cigarettes since the age of thirteen. Since I didn’t quit until the age of sixty-three, that is a lot of years of smoking!

In the past, I have done all kinds of horrible things with my cigarettes! I have accidentally burnt my children with them! Do you know what that will do to a child and mother? Always, I made sure I had cigarette money, before medicine! Thank God, I never had to choose where my children’s food was concerned!

Vaporing has nicotine and it is addictive.
Vaporing Has Nicotine!

Smoking – Vaporing e-Cigarettes?

So now for four years, I have been smoking e-cigs (and my Granddaughter says vaporing), and it is not as satisfying as the real thing, but they have enough nicotine. I do not burn anything and there are no ashes or second-hand smoke. All to the good!

Once my best friend’s daughter had to go to a rehab facility for helping her come off of some drugs and they made cigarettes one of her drugs. She was able in a month’s stay to take care of all of her drugs except the cigarettes.

Paula was told cigarettes were on the same addictive level as heroin and as hard to kick! I believe every bit of that! I have walked miles to have a cigarette, and in my fifty-one years of smoking, did many things I am not too proud to tell.

Anxiety In A Jar
Opioid Addiction Anxiety or SAD

For years I could have been having Opioid Addiction Anxiety or Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), and, I don’t know how much of which! Searching for opioid withdrawal symptoms I found some symptoms for long-term opioid use. The first one on the list was severe anxiety, and the second was diarrhea!

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) Diagnosed Age 4

When I began medication at the age of thirty-nine, my anxiety was severe. Social Anxiety Disorder from the age of four was diagnosed. I have clear of recollections of “Show & Tell” in Nursery School, wherein I could not participate, and stand in front of all of those other children and show my toy. I had my first anxiety attack and was physically sick, so my teacher took me outside.

If your child gives you reason to think they are coping with some form of anxiety problem, by all means, help them. Start with your pediatrician, or if you don’t use one, your family doctor. Anxiety can begin in the cradle for the child can be born with Social Anxiety Disorder.

Children Also Have Anxiety.
Children Also Have Anxiety

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD)

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a form of Autism in most cases and the child is born with SAD as they are born Autistic. So much work is being done today with Autistic patients including SAD patients, physicians are learning new characteristics every day.

I and my three sisters have Social Anxiety Disorder, and now, my granddaughter was born autistic. Three of us had childhoods where we plainly showed forth signs of SAD for diagnosis. Of course, we were not diagnosed in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Showing seeking love, unable to accept love easily.
Seeking Love, Unable To Accept Love Easily

Severe Social Anxiety Disorder

I can only clearly write of my own experience so that is what I shall do. There is a clear striving for love with a lack of ability to accept affection and believe they are loved! You will see a seeking of acceptance and approval without the ability to accept praise or be the center of attention graciously. They are embarrassed.

For a SAD baby a little noise can become too much input to handle. They can’t process it and will shut down and sleep through it, then finding that impossible, will cry and cry their way through it. Stop the input. Start it back, one thing at a time.

Instrumental music with few instruments is a good choice for nap time. Mother, Father, or another person well-known to the child, softly touching their back is a good thing. Try building clean, soft patterns to which the child will become accustomed.

Opioid emotional withdrawals can take many forms.

Afternoon Seventh Day Full Withdrawals

This post has a lot of stuff in it! I started it on the morning of the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals from Oxycodone. I am finishing it in the afternoon of the Seventh Day of Full Withdrawals and my internet has been down for two days.

Having had no one to talk to about withdrawals, medications, and duration of symptoms, I feel very alone. I am not alone although I am wishing for people informed about withdrawals to talk to now. If my internet comes back up I can contact my internet doctor. It’s time to talk to people about how the CBD oil is helping me and how it helped them.

CBD Pain Rub with Emu Oil is good to help me with my pain.
CBD PAIN RUB
Lyrica and CBD Oil

Mestinon is my medication for Myasthenia Gravis, and I take Lyrica for the severe Fibromyalgia nerve pain and neuropathy. Now Lyrica and CBD oil are my basic medications for pain, because the only time I was out of them, I suffered terribly.

CBD oil has done so many good things for me, out of all of them keeping the intense pain out of my first thoughts of the morning is why CBD is the most treasured! Second, is that I can see clearly instead of double-vision which made it difficult to read and write.

June is Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month and I have this disease.
Myasthenia Gravis
Myasthenia Gravis and Withdrawals

There is a muscle connecting your eyes that allows them to synchronize and focus for you. With Myasthenia Gravis this muscle loosens and you lose focus and see double.

Some may have put the clearing of vision first, but they are not aware of the degree of pain I dealt with on a daily basis. If I overslept a six-hour medication time I woke in bone-searing pain that had me in tears. CBD oil drops are making life without pain and opioids possible!
