I've always wondered about
MJ. We all know he's addicted to surgeries, but we also know that with surgeries come pain meds, and everytime we seem to hear about
him, he's in pain or acting like he is. I've always suspected pain med abuse from him but yet til know I've never heard anything intnews about
it, but hten again I dont watch the news too much. But also I dont think it's fair that people put CPP up against people like MJ and anna Nicole, I dont know about
you guys, but I dont see myself anything like them. I remember once when I was at a PM appointment and he was upping my methadone, the doctor warned me to be very careful or I can end up like Anna nicole, that made me mad, this was one of the last appointments I had with that jerk. Now please dont get me wrong, I dont think everyone that has surgeries is addicted to pain meds, but most of us try to advoid surgeries and only have them when absoutly needed, MJ had so many unneeded surgeries he was literally falling apart. I just hope he didnt die from something caused by pain meds, or that throws a red flag up for us that we dont deserve or earned.
I also have very crazy sleeping scheadules, but I've just learned to live with it. I tried Seroquel, but that knocked me out of 2 days straight with one dose, so when I go to see my doctor again on the 5th, I'm gonna ask him what other choices their is, but I will not do ambian, and lunesta never worked. But their just has to be other choices out their that arnt benzos or ambien type meds.
