Susie,
AMEN!!! i totally agree with you about what you posted regarding your son & husband.  i feel that one should not judge unless one is in that position.  your husband doesn't follow Dr.'s orders? and he has DM????  he's in for trouble. what, does he think he's indestructable?
my boyfriend had passed a joke a few months back about my pain meds...something like "oh, you pill popper!" just kidding because we were joking about his drinking Guinnes every nite.  but i was WAY offended!!!  like...how dare you even say "pill popper" like i'm some drug addict!!!!  but when i was in the ER several times for uncontrolled arm and knee pain he did shut up about it and now understands what a necessity they are.
i feel it is better to take a med and then be able to do some things around the house or enjoy the day for a while rather than suffer in pain and do nothing but lay in bed.
i think pain meds have gotten a bad reputation over the years from peole who party with them and abuse them. i mean, have you ever asked a doc for percocet and they look at you like you just asked them to build the wall of China!???
i'm glad your son has some understanding for you.
take good care susie!

Flopsie,

you sum it up beautifully! what a nice post.  i don't think we were debating, i think we all agree this is a subject WE ALL encountered and felt labelled against.  and it's sad.  i really do hate how that whole epidemic of kids partying with Oxycontin was on the news like constantly, and now....a med which was very successful for pain management is like impossible to get a RX for because docs think they will create drug abusers.

this was a nice conversation! very intellect like!!!! dont ya think???  makes ya think!  hey....lets talk about medical marijuana!  tongue NO!!! just kidding!!!!!

Hi,hope every on is doing well,

Susie I can relate to husband thing my -ex did not feel that I needed pain meds we argued all the time about this,he had every one beliveing that I had a drug problem.

I told him that I really just did'nt care what he thought any moore.I told him he had no idear what kind of pain I was in and that untill he walked in my shoes not to judge me and sure as h***don't tell me that I don't need pain meds.

This alot of the reason we split,in other he gave me a choice either him are my meds.That and I got so tired of hearing things him put me down all the time.I mean he would go days to wear he would not talk to me and so on.

It just really bothers me when some one try's to judge me when they have no idear what they are even saying are what we are going through.

Curley.....
a.k.a.Mela.......

Effie, would you please tell us more about the botox injections? What led you to decide to do them. Were they painful, and did you have any aftereffects or side effects?
