  1. We need something that ties into IPB so we can be sure of who is who and don't have trolls dropping in claiming to be someone they are not.

    Sleep study results

    I just had a home sleep study that showed no apnea but that's all.

  5. After a few months of tapering down, I cut my last ten into .25mg chunks. I took one every few days, only when I couldn't stand not to. I tried spreading them farther and farther apart, but one it was down to .25 ever 4 days or so, that was as good as it was going to get. Once those last chunks were gone I still felt like shit for a couple months and that's after staying drunk for a couple weeks at the start of it. I was incapacitated for most of the summer of 2016. I have no intention of taking daily benzos again ever.

    Motor Tic-Adderall

    I take tenex/intuniv for tics made worse by stimulants. It doesn't eliminate them but it's damn close.

    I've dabbled but had too many philosophical differences. Feel free to PM me if you like. My biggest problem is the idea that you have to start over if you fuck up ever once. This has led several people I've known to go on three-day benders after having a single beer or two in a moment of weakness. It's very all or nothing. It does work for some people and I would never try talking them out of it. I'm taking my first solid stab at sobriety in a while right now and the two things I'm finding most helpful have getting back into therapy again and looking for some kind of spiritual outlet. The later is just UU which is about as spiritual as I'm going to get. We do have an addiction board but this is most likely fine here.
  8. Getting chat going will be a high priority for me one I get full use of my hands back. I have only two working fingers on my left hand at all and I can't type with the the others for long before they start getting weak. We need a chat solution that that ties into the board software so everyone has the same login and account for both. Most of the options are either expensive or complicated to set up and configure. I'm going with one closer to the later category but its going to take a bit more time. I see a hand specialist this afternoon. Hopefully, there will be non-surgical options that can have me typing again sooner.
  9. Apparently all pharmacies in my area are out of 20mg Adderall IR. I've heard of it on other places as well. Is anyone here being hit by it?
  10. I'm eventually looking at dentures. I may go ahead and do it this year but I really hate going to the dentist.
  11. ugh. ok. Both my wrists are in braces but I see what I can figure out. I see an otrtho on tues. Hopefully I can get steroid injections to tide me over we can find permanent solution (probably surgery). After more than an hour or so using a keyboard I can barely hold a pen or turn a doorknob so I'm having to work in very small incriminates. The voice recognition that comes with Win10 is good for opening and closing windows and simple dictation and that's about it.

    I'm not really new...

    Good to see you again.
  13. You mean from the front page? There's stuff I need to do that will fix a ton of search related problems but I haven't been able to because I've been having a bad RSI flareup in my wrists and I can't taken anything for it because of interactions with other meds and health problems. I'm stuck in wrist braces and using a combination of four finger typing and voice recognition. Oral steroids are doing nothing. I am meeting with a neuro to see about steroid injections on Thurs.
