Why is it that when people hear that we take pain meds they automatically think we want to stop taking them? Or that we need to stop taking them? I understand that some people have addiction issues but that doesn't mean we all do...and it sure doesn't mean that we all have to stop taking pain meds...
If I were to stop taking my pain meds I would be in bed crying and screaming all the time....why would I want to do that?
I take pain meds....there, I said it. I take them and I want to keep taking them.....there I said that too....
