I am looking at beginning opiate therapy and feeling a bit apprehensive. I have been dealing with this pain for over a year and all conservitive treatments have not brought the relief I need. The PM doc wants to start ER opiates w/BT meds if needed. I know this is the next step but am still having trouble wrapping my head around it!
My feeling was when I went to PM that it was like the end of the road but now I am trying to see it as the beginning of a new path. Why am I feeling some sort of guilt? Why do I feel like I am giving up or giving in? All I know is I want a better quality of life! Suppose I just needed to put my feelings in print and out of my head.
