Heck, Tom...I'd take any cure for CP, narcotic or not. Frankly, I could care less about being dependent on something as long as it gave me a decent quality of life. I finally got my PCP to switch my weenie dose of Lortab to a weenie dose of Percocet(since I have a new pain issue), and it actually made enough of a difference in the way I feel, that I could actually spend the last couple of days doing cleaning projects around my apartment that haven't been touched for months.
His feeling was always wanting me to get off the Lortab since it wasn't "helping the situation", but DUH!!!...if he gave me a decent dose it would. Not to mention, I'm on the heavy side, so medications don't affect me with the strength that a normal size person would experience, plus, because of my gastric bypass, I don't get all the time to absorb things into the bloodstream completely. AAARRRGGGGHHH!!! Makes me want to beat my head against a wall, except it would no doubt bring on a migraine.
I'll probably end up with a migraine later today anyway, judging on the weather forecast. It really sux when my abortive lasts less than two weeks, and I get to spend two weeks knowing everyday that if the weather gets bad, I'm screwed. Just thinking about it makes me depressed. Think I'll go to bed.
