Maybe some of you have thought of this before. Yesterday I took my pain meds as rx-d and I was still in pain. Plus I was tired, weak, unmotivated, withdrawn, empty, alone. I thought, I'm still in pain while taking these darn meds. And reading other posts, all the trouble we go through to get these stupid pills. The dr visits, the scrutinies, the pharmacy prices, not to mention IF the pharmacy HAS ENOUGH of our medicine. The stress of waiting until I am down to my LAST DAYS- only two pills left! and going to the pharmacy not knowing if they will have my medicine. Then having to drive across town if they don't to find a pharmacy that does. The side effects.
Is all this worth the "pain relief"? What will happen to me if I quit taking these meds? Am I just being stupid or fantasizing about all this going away? Have you felt this way or thought about this?
