hello... ive been on subs for a few years. i do know every case is different but what u said about staying home and doing nothing? i have been wondering lately as well if the subs are affecting me that why. i rarely leave the house. in fact i forced myself to volunteer 4 hrs a week because i was worried i was going to become like a hermit. some days i have energy, most days i dont feel like doing nothing, i know in my heart it is the subs. i am going to try and quit. this is no way to live, because my day is going to go by how the subs affect me that day!! i'm tired of it. i take 8mg x2 a day. u should talk to your doc, being that u had a stroke and all i would consult a professional. i hope your day goes better. :) oh and when u say that sometimes u feel good for 30 mins after takin a sub? that has happened with me too... like yesterday for instance, i kept having to take a little bit every hour i felt like crap and thought i wasnt gettin enuf subs, i think at this point of being on them for so long they have pretty much done all they can for me and i probably have so much absorbed in my body that i hate thinkin about what its doin to my organs, i have a feelin subs are runnin me down. sounds like u too, u should ask your doc tho if its the subs or your stroke. sorry to hear about your daughter. :(
