Wouldn't we all love to feel normal! I'm just hoping that once we find the right dosage of the right medication I can feel half-way functional! I know what you mean about feeling like your initial pain meds were a lot. It is a scary thing to think about how much medication we need to feel somewhat better & more functional, but is better than living in constant unbearable pain. It's the stigma about pain medication that makes everything worse. I'm still afraid of the day that I will have to go to the ER or some other new doctor. I hate taking the stuff, as I think most people do, but I just need to face the fact that I need it to survive. I was barely getting by from day to day before, and although things still aren't great, at least they are a little better than when I wasn't taking anything.
