I never realized how hard this world of navigating chronic pain was. I was always so clumsy or whatever I would end up hurting myself and end up on pain killers quite a few times a year. I never had trouble getting them so I never gave it much thought. Then in January my chronic pain story began. I still have not had the trouble some of you guys have had but I even had trouble getting Cymbalta rewritten by another doctor after I got out of the hospital. (They thought it would interfere with my other psych meds). I have learned some great things on this website. For instance I have leftover pain meds that were prescribed to me and I did not know that it would get me in trouble with my PM to take them. I thought if they were prescribed to me I could take them. (My PM doesn't have me on any narcotics). Anyway I feel for you. Some of us just do not know things that other people take for granted in knowing. I do not think anyone should be looked at poorly for it. I think it is important to let others know what a PM will think about taking more meds than prescribed but this place is about community and learning. I hope you can still feel that. I know a lot of the members gave you that support but I just wanted to give my two cents. I love this place. I want it to be a positive part of my day.
