I found half a slice of ham under the sofa when I was hoovering.

Now that I've experienced several weeks of my normal (pre-detox) sleep pattern I am declaring myself free of the effects of withdrawl from my Oxy. People who have done this told me it could take up to three months to be free and clear and I'm coming up on two months. Poor sleep is the last symptom I could attribute to it so unless something else pops up (doubtful) I should be good. My relationship with Rebecca continues to deepen. I am grateful beyond words.

Actually it's the smell of stone after it rains, the smell that comes off paving slabs, for instance after a shower and then sunshine
But yeah, lovely word, one of my favourites, although a little difficult to weave into conversation.

There's gotta be a metal band called Petrichor somewhere in the world. Possibly Northern Europe. Or maybe Latin America.

edit: Leeds, UK! And Richmond, USA.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I'd pay good money for a petrichorian deodorant. Oh wait, it's called Irish Spring soap. :)

Thanks everyone. It has been a hard road but glad I succeeded. It's only up from here. It's a weird feeling not to have to check my pocket to make sure I have my pills on me before I leave the house.

It is great but you inevitably sound like a twat when you say it.

After weeks of feeling that something’s really not been right all my life, someone said something today that resonated. I phoned a counsellor and now it seems like I need another visit to my GP. Don’t worry as it’s not a bad thing. If what I think is true, things will make more sense and that phone call was productive. Don’t want to say too much here as I can’t be sure yet, but I will post more soon.
