I think I've reached a point in my journey where I can use a bit more meds, more often, with less "psych" effects... which is a good thing, as I really need it for pain, as well as for the anxiety/insomnia. I have begun to notice some reduction of my joint pain, though I still have the surface "itchy" that affects me so badly. It's all nerve misfiring. My CMP is reducing slightly, too. I miss the way happy "high"... but I really like being able to walk up stairs, and to sleep.
