YOU vent AWAY ANYTIME
That therapist Had no business saying she would like to refer you to an addictionoligist
I take 120 mg of morphine and 60...( have also a RX for Oxycontin if needed but do not mix /use the 80 mgs of them for severe severe pain when broken out down to the bone in sores them together) for bt plus I have percocets if needed .......I weigh just about
105 lbs and I know I am dependant on the meds to help me function at a certain level to get done what I have to do daily BUT ADDICTED......not
Here in Ontario ativan is not listed as a Narcotic nor is valium or any benzo's .........
YOU have been to hades and back and she still pulls this .......
I for one am so happy you are seeing someone else and you know the docs know if if there is an addiction problem as well as they know it is needed for pain
'I do NOT ever get a " high" or " buzz" from my pain meds they go directly to pain and I take as supposed to just like you
I am totally honest with my doc and he is honest with me ......I would have fallen thru the cracks of the HC system here if not for him
In the beginning ativan was touted as being the new wonder drug to take the place of Valium non addictive and all that BUT I have seen no difference in 35 plus yrs
I am so sorry for the way your daughters are being treated by their dad........it takes a man to be a Father and he should be looking out for HIS n your kids not doing what he is doing for his G/F and her kids
It will or could cause damage as you know to your daughters down the line ..........
I have ben told only once by an ER doc that my pain meds were making me depressed I shot back at him NO these D*** gaping ulcerlike sores to the bone and crohns is making me this way ........and walked out
My family doc knows I have to have them I actually asked to have the inbetween D/C..ed BUT he said HE WILL NOT LET ME be in PAIN.........
Most dont get it they never will til theywalk in our shoes and live a day of our pain ......and for that I am sorry but also it bothers me that they do not educate selves on this ..........
I am able to drive walk talk cook clean and look after self and daughter quite well on amount of meds I take just as you are .......I do UNDERSTAND I really do and that is so wrong what you are going thru
