thks...i do have good days. i refer to it like the water at the beach. It comes and goes, but watch out for those big ones, they will knock u on ur butt

i have been referred to the pain management, but after all that's been on tv, even i am a bit leary. After all, it's not like i want a boatload of stuff and (yes, i can find humor) after all, i probably won't need it for too long anyway.

The real issue is people who abuse these pills (the doctors and people)
I myself have major pain problems and opted out of surgery (no insurance) and pain managment due to the fact that i knew thats a one way ticket to a crappy existance.
I do have a script for vicodin but i take less than 5 a year, i know they do work for intense pain but i'd never take it to get high,
Its really a truley horrible epidemic.

AMEN!!!!! I started with a real reason and before I knew it.... Dependant. It is awful when you come to know that stopping is far,far worse than the pain that got you there in the first place. If you take them for fun, please be careful.... They are indeed the Devil!
