Before I got clean in May, I overdosed on Baclofen. I don’t have any permanant problems from that except for memory loss. I have been continually researching memory loss problems associated with that and I keep finding out all of this stuff about statin drug related memory loss. But what I am freaking out and scared of is it being permanant!! My memory is practically shot and I can’t find anything that says the outcome of these effects. I’m so scared about this!! I dont know where else to do research on it but I almost don’t have the ability to process new memories. It affects my every day life and I need all of the information that I can get on this.
I hope my memory heals in time and that this is transient and not permanant damage.
Any thoughts, imput? (would be greatly appreciated)
Thanks.September 15, 2013 at 4:36 am#160843AnonymousInactive
Well I don’t know much about that drug or its long or short term effects.
I do know that post acute withdrawal and the insanity that is addiction. I also have overdosed on different drugs and a doctor told me she did not KNOW if I would return to my pre drug state…
Its scarey to not remember and feel like our emotions and mental stuff is fried…and sometimes it IS..But have a little FAITH..
You can’t learn to do it from researching …Blind faith,,,try it little ..there are amazing things that happen in the lives of recovering people and I am not one to discount the miracles either…”there is one who has all power”…
I do not claim to know WHO that power is or how it works..but it does .
Believe that you will feel better and let go of it a little…you are obviously doing lots of thinking with that brain of yours!!!!
I am kinda in the same boat as youright now..I feel prema-fried…but I am not going to think my way out of this one..I have to stay clean one day at a time and try to catch a miracle..
I feel your worry and your fear..I think you are gonna be ok Hope 4 life….

Thanks North. 🙂 I’m hoping for a miracle too.
Like you said, we can stay clean and hope to catch a miracle.
I think that if we stay clean we will heal and won’t always be so bad.
I think I’ve just been really paranoid over this whole thing after reading all of that. I never thought of stuff like that before I actually decided to do the hard but in the aftermath is when it really comes back to haunt ya.
What’s done is done though and I can’t undo it but I can cause unnecessary stress to myself by worrying. Maybe I can still function with what brain I have left. 😛
Definitely don’t want to be digging any more holes for myself that is for sure.
Yes, just like you said…. Faith…. and hope for a miracle.
For you and me both. 🙂September 15, 2013 at 4:54 am#160851AnonymousInactive
Maybe it’s PAWS?
I don’t understand… one day I can focus ok and then the next day I can’t focus AT ALL. Not even a little bit. I also have to go over things in my mind constantly or I won’t remember it.September 15, 2013 at 5:33 am#160844AnonymousInactive
Ya know its funny we never think about this stuff when we are out there rippin and runnin….at least I don’t…!
Am I the only one that rips and runs??..LOL..god I sound like I am 18 years old…September 15, 2013 at 5:42 am#160852AnonymousInactive
No, you weren’t the only one to rip and run. I did that too!! Didn’t think about anything, just went ahead and did everything I wanted to do.
North, you’re so sweet. :)You cheered me up. Thank you so much for the support tonight. I’m so grateful.September 15, 2013 at 6:02 am#160845AnonymousInactive
Its so OK..I do the same thing..I am lucky to make it our of my addiction BREATHING and then I want to worry about stuff like heart damage…I mean ..whats done is done..we are still here postin away..saving each other daily from the grips of hell..now if that ain’t a miracle I don’t know what is huh???
love northSeptember 15, 2013 at 6:16 am#160853AnonymousInactive
A true miracle 🙂
At least we are alive and breathing and have another chance at life.September 15, 2013 at 6:18 am#160859AnonymousInactive
Just because we have reached a certain age we don’t have to stop rippin and runnin. We just have to call it a different name such as shopping and parenting for some lol. I agree with you north about getting out of the addiction breathing. My addiction wanted to kill me. Too bad i couldn’t arrest it for attempted murder lol. Yeah i can laugh at it now because i have cried for so very long due to the pain it causes. Hope4life…..we have to train our brain again nad teach it to think positive thoughts. Sometimes it wants to rebel nd go back to the nonfunctioning brain that was doped up so it won’t have to work. Make your mind work….keep excersing it and you’ll find soon that you are in control once again………….VikiSeptember 15, 2013 at 6:22 am#160846AnonymousInactive
LOL…shopping and parenting have indeed replaced rippin and runnin…
think thats our cue we are too old for this noise!!
