i posted a brief statement on this but i feel so strongly about this i felt i needed to reiterate this again. some people feel that narcotics are bad and can ruin your life, as i stated before, my pain drs , the first one and my new one,that research shows that they are beneficial if used in the right way. your life is not shortened by them. you don't go crazy or drool or walk around cross eyed. they help us with being able to function in our everyday lives. because of them i can work, get up, function with my family etc. the media wants you to believe that they will ruin your life and in fact you will die if use them. in fact i heard the guy on celebrity rehab state that you have pain if you use them. stop please. don't work on hysteria. i believe that the majority of people on this site use them responsibly and they help them. most of us do not use them to get high or feel good. so irresponsible statements like them harming you only makes it harder for us that need them. this only feeds into the hysteria . we have enough problems telling relatives or co workers and bosses why we use them. it is a constant battle to diffuse these rumors and in the long run makes it harder to get them from drs. they get pressure from the dea and the media about prescribing them. so check your facts first
your friend and a pain free life
