I don't think anyone was insinuating anything, but I do want to make it clear that I never got 'high' off my pain medication. I was on 30 mg sustained release morphine 2x a day, and then I believe 15mg immediate release for breakthrough pain. Being a relatively small person, I feel it was almost inevitable not to feel any disorienting side effects from that much morphine when I'd never been on it before. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was slowed down and had a shorter attention span when I was on the morphine. However, it did become less prominent (never went away completely) after some time had passed and the dose I was on was perfect for managing my pain.
Anyway, thank you both for your input. It's nice to get the opinion of someone else in pain because my family never quite understood my concerns about
learning to drive on so much medication.
