Hi Nan,
I'll hold off a bit on any congrats for now, simply because its still so early and you'll find this is a two step process. One is ending the cycle of pain. The second is getting to the point that you can actually believe and accept the fact that a cycle has ended without submitting to the beast's time table. When that happens, it falls somewhere between a revelation and an epiphany. We're still working on step one.  Wink  
 
Can you tell us if you can notice (and explain) any differences in the pain-free time you are feeling now and the pain-free time when you were having success with Kudzu? IS there any difference? More clear-headed, ect.?? These types of subtle (or not so subtle) physical "feelings" can help determine physiological changes going on with the treatments(s).

No worries, Bob... I know we're still "in process". Rest assured though...I submit to NO ONE.  Wink Even when it's here... I don't submit. It's more like a kicking and screaming thing. I shall NEVER give up this fight.
There is a huge difference between PF on 'zu and PF now. Now, let's see if I can explain it.  
Before, even if I was PF, I could feel a "presence"...like something was just sitting there, waiting to pounce. I just always "knew" it was there.
Now... when I'm PF, it really does feel as though my head is "empty". It's almost as if I can imagine what a head that never had a HA feels like.  
The most interesting thing for me (and this happened when I first started kudzu), is my new "wimpiness". LOL I've been chronic for 5 years and really feel my pain threshold is pretty high. The slightest shadow really chaps my ass now. I'm guessing this is how "normal" people feel when they get a tension HA.  Wink I have little patience for the pain, and it irks me more than ever that I struggle with this bastard. Which, or course, strengthens my resolve to keep fighting.  
hugs, nani

Interesting observation, Nani....you MORE than deserve to have no patience for even a shadow...that's what we all should aim for and achieve.  I know that "presence" of which you mention....the lack of it is when I can tell that a cycle is finally over.  It's difficult to put into words, but it is very real.  Here's to no more "presence"!

When I first did the treatment earlier this year (3 doses 5 days apart) I had fantastic results with only 3 real hits in a 2 month span. That was my greatest success with it. When I tried it again after I started cycling again in March, I did it in late April. The second time around was not a success, but the doses were very weak as well.
However, I am chronic and have been for 7 years straight, and understand that being chronic it requires more doses to stay PF. If you are episodic though, the success rate is much better, but again every individual is different and what will work for some does not work for everyone. This is also true with modern medicine as well so let us not forget that (right BoobP?)   Wink

I respectfully request that this thread not be turned into and episode of:
The continuing saga of BobP vs the busters
Thank you.
 
It took me 18 months of reading other's success before I was ready to try this. Those threads continued to inspire me and give me hope. Sometimes, that's all we've got. I really am not here to discuss anything other than my experiences with this treatment. I really hope that, because of my history, I can give hope to someone else. That's all. I'll update tonight.   Kiss

99% today.  Grin  
A couple of "twinges" and a few moments of feeling the presence now and then. Still calling today a complete success.
I think I'm in a holding pattern...will update only as things change. Thank you all for your support and encouragement!   Kiss

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. Smiley
Wednesday was a rough day. I got hit twice and shadowed some. So I got proactive and dosed with 3 HBWR seeds last night. Again, no noticeable "effect". I shadowed some during the treatment and some pretty easy shadows on and off today. My head is clear again tonight. Smiley
I tried the seeds this time, because a few people have found that dosing with them after a few psilocybin treatments stopped their cycle.  
We'll see how it goes. Smiley
hugs and love, nani
 
edited to add: all in all, with this treatment, I'm getting really good results with only having to take any "medicine" every 6 - 8 days.

Nani, all the best wishes for you from here.  My biggest regret from not going to the convention was not being able to meet you.  You may not remember me but you helped me out when I first got here.  I can honestly say I am hoping for your continued successes. I do not post often, read moslty, but felt I had to offer you my best wishes.  Keep 'kicking and screaming'
