Fellas, I'm 180lbs
Just get a weight gainer
Cato! How are you alive ???
I’m one inch taller than you and 265
I’m down once I’m feeling better
Driving is the worst thing right now
Just gotta get to TEXAS
Oh you’re not even here lol
just gonna float on a log down the Brazos river
Gas is expensive
I'll row a boat down there and show up with some killer obliques
hang out with TWP for a while, we'll change that
Gotta eat lots of meat and veggies and lift a little bit
I still haven’t eaten
All I’ve been able to manage is a protein shake
I have to go work for a few hours too
I can’t wait for this feeling to end
try making a shake yourself with some calorically dense stuff
like peanut butter
I did one shake
But that’s all i could sotmach
Got to work and it’s distracting me from some of the symptoms
Anyone have any good advice on making yourself eat?
I haven’t eaten anything solid all day
Considering I’ve jumped from 4mg to 2mg, I’m doing well that way, but I can’t eat for shit and am feelin real shitty and the lack of food can’t be helping matters
If anyone’s been there, let me know what works for you when you need to eat and cant
Do you have anorexia?
Make a big pot of bone broth
Broth. Not a bad idea but still just liquid
It goes down easy and has a lot of important nutrients
So i don’t necessarily need solid food?
Liquids are a good solution if your appiteite is gone.
not the most high calorie thing, but you can add some vegetables to it
All I’ve had is water and a protein shake
I can make a soup or something
solid food is obviously better. But if you can't eat it or keep it down, liquid still gets some nutrients into you
I want to eat somethinggg
@FashyGoy1488 Not necessarily, but don't think that you can live the rest of your life on broths and protein shakes.
But I have no appetite
Well obviously not
Make nigger soup
Just while I’m hurting
It's literally soup made out of blacks
It's a fantastic source of VitamiN K
As well as vitamin K
And of vitamin K
I’m doing a hard taper off Xanax @Dangerlurking I don’t want to depend on benzos forever
You’re supposed to slow taper but I’m a viking
Not recreational my dude
Its one of the worst withdrawals out there
Recreational Xanax use is for faggots
You got some explaining to do.
No he doesn't
It really is
Get a load of this guy
I know right lol
A literally who telling an officer and respected member to explain himself
He doesn't need to justify himself and his medical history
Get the fuck out of here if you're gonna act like that dude
Even if it *was* recreational, so what? We all have a past that we're trying to shake off
@Fash Dragon Read above, I was typing that out as he was responding, I thought he was using the recreational kind, then I noticed he was using the medical kind, after I sent that out.
Telling an officer to explain himself to you was kinda dumb
But i forgive
Hell, I was a junkie
We all have oasts
And nobody has demanded that I explain myself. I fought my way out of it, and that's enough
I quit drinking except special occasions this year. I was a liquor junkie. Feels good to not drink honestly. Never turning back.
I still drink and I smoke when I'm stressed
@Dangerlurking regardless dude, show respect to officers and other members generally.
Lots of our guys do
I’m not gonna knock on drinking, I’m just personally happier now
and sometimes smoke a corn cob pipe when I want to relax or larp as Cmdr. Rockwell
I can’t handle tobacco I hate it
I stopped smoking recently
pipe tobacco is very different from cigarettes
*Well, I fucked this one up really bad.*
@Fash Dragon Yhea, I know, but drug use, is not a thing I tend to take lightly, especially for something as hardcore as xanax.
I broke down and had a few on Saturday because I was partying
Hey man moderation
@Dangerlurking lol dude I don't either. I ODd on that shit back in 2016.
It’s better than other things out there
That was the worst time of my life
Everyone that quits benzos wishes they never started
@Fash Dragon Yhea, when you hear stories about stuff like that, and their long term effect on people, you tend to get a bit heavy handed in your approach to it.
There’s always a better option
Yep, I certainly do
I feel you Rex
There was a time when half my paycheck went down my throat, into my lungs or up my nose
I don’t like to see our people take the path of drugs
I don’t like it either
@FashyGoy1488 Well, what matters is that you are fixing the issue.
Benzos are like a ball and chain
I will be stronger after this
I’m just weak for now
It felt so good at first, I was so relaxed
I feel weak anyways
taking 2x .5mg per day
That’s low, not bad
I took like 11mg in a day once
In the beginning
After 4 years I was on 6-8mg per day
And you quit that entirely?
and sublingual Ativan for when I had panic attacks anyway
@Hadrian That's how most people get into weed, an escape away from their issues.
not week, xanax
Hadrian are you fully off benzos?
My psychiatrist prescribed it along with the rest of my cocktail
Yes, haven't touched one since August 2016
I was connecting the two, in how people get into them.
I did say I'd been there
What was your process to quit? Taper also?
yeah but a long taper
Yeah I’m kind of being crazy with this jump
by the time I lost my insurance I already had like 2 month supply left
I just want a boost forward through the quitting process
So far it’s bad
I can hardly drive or work or concentrate
Still supremely sucked when I jumped down too fast
Luckily it’s my easiest and last semster
Yeah man that’s me Hadrian
I jumped fast
But I will go slow after this jump
Once I get stabilized on 2mg per day
There were multiple days on end when I didn't get out of bed except to go to the bathroom or get some water
That’s how I feel
Barely but yes.
I’ll get through this
For the quite bad addictions, mostly for people who took it recreationally, they tend to have reactions like those of heroin/meth addicts.
I had to stop taking Wellbutrin at the same time too
It’s not just recreation Rex
because taking that during benzo withdrawal causes seizures
If you’re prescribed it and you stop, you’ll be just as “dopesick”
Benzo withdrawal is worse
I've done meth. Benzo withdrawal was worse
Yeah it is
I did an opiate detox a long time ago
opioids was the one thing I never touched
That sucked but it wasn’t as bad as my first benzo detox
This is my second benzo detox
I'd rather have a month of coke hangovers than a week of benzo sickness
Full time college and work and TWP and my own hobbies was all too much for my anxious ass
oh god, the coke hangovers
But I didn’t know then what I know now
So I am confident I can handle this shit without drugs. In time.
Right before I quit, my job wrote me up for taking too many breaks
What they didn't know is I was taking those breaks to go do a bump in the bathroom
Yeah my job is being cool about it luckily
I’m a driver and I’ve been working inside
I can’t drive much
the xanax made me so tired with the dosages I was on
Never really got tired from it tbh
I had to do coke during the day so I could work
Shit. That sounds awful
It was probably a combination of that and the mood stabilizers and antipsychotics I was on
I think Risperdal at the time
Bad for the heart to go up and down like that
Glad you’re doing better
Well there's a reason I quit that job. Too much stress
The stress caused every one of my symptoms, except for the ones the drugs caused
I feel that
@FashyGoy1488 And just combining medicine and alchohol can be fatal, imaging taking xanax and coke at the same time!
I'm not going to say exactly what it was, but it was a high stress job in the medical field
Like a person in an ambulance?
Again, not saying for my own protection. But it was hospital related and there were real lives at stake
No offense brother, I just don't know you and this room isn't secure
Yhea, it is understandable.
Managed to eat half an apple
Now I won’t feel bad about trying to sleep
Thanks for being there for me goys
My 6 pack is turning to a keg... age is catching up with me. I need to start doing more ab workouts
Ivr become a fat fuck
And it stops today
Yeah! Right after these cheese coneys!
Like at cville i was in decebt shape and i gotta get back to that so i can be in fighting shape
Proud boys got stabbed in my town
Antifa* so that was like a reality check
Where was this, and when?
How bad was he stabbed?
They are ok
I sorta know them
Did they get jumped, or did they sneak stab em?
From the information i received
They went to a concert
And like 10 antis jumped them
They got two back tho
The pbs in this state are woke on jq ajd all that but scared of natsocs
Bcuz muh ww2 propoganda
Some pbs seem like they can be converted.
Freaking concerts are dangerous places...our goys need to roll in deep into venues, anymore.
A HSN guy had his throat slit by some nog, at a show in ATL, a few years ago.
I've almost gotten killed at a couple shows (once boot partied by a bunch of commies in steel toes and jumped by a bunch of commies and beaten with a hammer at another show)
One of our TWP TN goys got stabbed 12 times at a show a few years ago.
I think most of the guys I know had their worst encounters at concerts.
Ive never been a big concertgoer
I love em...find a lot of good recruits at em, I just tend to go to a lot of punk shows, where I get into shit...oops
lmao I got punched at a concert in the mosh pit years ago
Either just happened to get punched or someone was a bit butthurt on my SS hoody
Probably the latter
lol i thought i was the only one who got punched at a concert
took brass knuckes straight across the bridge of my nose
