Yes, that's right folks, I've been cut off for three months now; the result, chronic, I mean chronic discomfort (and I'm not talking withdrawl, that's over with). I go to work and come straight home to bed to get enough rest so I can work again the next day. I have had to go to the ER about
every week and a half b/c when I feel like I'd rather be dead and in a fetal position it's time to do something. I just went to the "new and improved" PM Clinic and it's all about
thinking positively, meditating and retraining your nerves not to "go to that high of a pain level," i"m going to have to learn to "tolerate" and "Live with the pain" b/c studies now suggested narcotics are BAD for chronic pain. The worse is that the message is clearly, "your suffering is up to you and what you're willing to do about
it--be positive!!!!!" I truly believe this is a reaction to the war on drugs and how much grief the DEA gives MD's. In the meantime I get to feel like i'm at death's door on a daily basis here in the 21st century.
15 yrs of: IBS, GERD, Ulcerative Colitis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome, and, yes, just diagnosed last month with Crohns!!!!!
And to think, if I was just a more positive person, none of this would have happened to me
