I found this site about
3+ weeks ago as I had went to try & fill my script
for one-hundred & fifty 30mg oxycodone's & had to go to four pharmacies before I was blessed to find some. I came home & got on the internet & googled oxycodone shortage & was like...WOW!!!...I could not believe this was going on nationwide.
Well I thought I am just gonna have to move up to oxycontin & the Percocet 10's since I was told by different pharmacist that this problem will probably linger for at least a couple months. Well the last thing I wanted was to go on oxycontin as I was wanting to hold off on that strong of medicine until it was a must. Well I am a praying man. I used to be a Pastor of a small pentecostal church in my area until my disabilities just kept me from being the Pastor the people needed, I am also a single father raising a teemage daughter by myself so I really started praying & asked the Lord to help me make the right decision on my meds as I have severe chronic pain. Well after alot of prayer I kept thinking about that verse in Phillipians where it says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".
So yesterday I went to the Dr. & we talked & I could have had any pain med I wanted basically since he knew about the shortage. But I said I think I want to cut down from taking five 30mg oxycodone's a day to taking 12 10/325 perc's a day wich is a 30MG loss of medicine each day & the Dr. was glad to oblige. So I went & got my Perc's filled today & I take 2.5 four times a day & 2 at bedtime. Now that may not seem like much to some people but losing 30mg's a day is to me & since joining this board I mostly read & have seen that there are alot of great people out there in the world going thru similar things as myself.
So I said all that just to ask you when you say a prayer please remember me as I know I can get through this with the help of Jesus & people's prayers. And I think it is very nice that there is a website like this where I can ask people who understand to say a prayer for me because some people don't understand & think your some kind of drug addict. Well I am just a regular guy & would love for this medicine taper to work out for me.
And I don't want to offend nobody, if you don't believe in prayer that is ok, just wish me luck.
Thank you all for reading & thank you for alot of encouraging posts that I have read on this website...they really do help.
Have a Nice day
