I think I did something very stupid



  • thats just what my husband and I use, same method. Thanks again for all your kind words and thoughts. It means so much to me.
  • You should ease up on yourself, doing these things is part of the learning process, the stupid thing would have been not to try and get through and the loss of a loved one never easy or as we think we will be able to cope. We all do things to survive that in the cold light of day and with some hindsight could have been done more effectively, we do not have a crystal ball and only you know how this pressure makes you feel inside and with the loss of my own sister though cancer a year ago, I am not coping as I expected, who would.

    Whatever your circumstance this was just a blip and momentary decision and something you have learned from, you are a busy mom and wife, giver and supporter and a lot is expected by others and yourself and you are doing well, it takes time and patience, and you will get through.

    Take care John.

  • I'm sorry to hear about your dad and my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. This surely is a most difficult time for all of you. When I feel stressed or depressed, the pain seems to shoot up more.

    Anyway, I am so relieved that your appt went well and your PA was so understanding. You are so fortunate. There was one time someone here took old pain pills once prescribed to him/her instead of their regular pills. Then it showed up on a urine screen and the person wound up dismissed. I have no idea how long these type of meds stay in your system, and I think you did a brave thing by being honest and taking that chance.

    Hang in there and I hope the new dose of Oxycodone helps. How much was it increased if you don't mind saying? I'm on 15mg every 6 hours for my BT pain. Take care
