Don’t let doctors make you think you are doomed. You’re not.
Once I got it in my head that I would get off of the Neurontin to help my brain recover from the nerve injury, I realized (through the help of my TCM practitioners) that the only way for my body to correctly heal itself was to detox from all the medications I was on – MS Contin, Neurontin, Oxycodone, Klonopin, among other things. After two months of horrible detoxing (the movies do not lie – the sweating, puking, 3 AM in the bath with restless leg..terrible), I went into a beautiful remission. It was glorious!! Suddenly my body felt normal. After years of agonizing pain and poor motor function in my ankles, i could walk! The remission lasted just a few months but I learned something valuable. The issue is my brain chemistry and I can treat that better with food, needles and meditation than any drug. In fact, I believe the drugs only make it harder for the body.
You absolutely CAN get better. You have the power. It’s not easy but it’s totally worth it. Not a day goes by that I don’t have a huge grin on my face as I go run errands, take a walk, do things I could not do for so long. You are not doomed. Help yourself to figure out what your body needs to get well.
