Wider use of methadone to ease pain is proving deadly

Full story: The Morning Call

The one girl's death was another example of a growing national problem in which methadone's transition from detox drug to pain reliever has put it in the hands of people who don't understand its effects.

I am hoping you are directing this part of your post to MANY others through out this forum and not singling me out because you read a post or 2 of mine. I see it as extremely hypocritical if you are. Try reading through the various threads and posts before you direct that sentence at me alone.

You are not the only one with "pain".

Why don't you spread your peace and love elsewhere, I don't want it.

Arguing is pointless, this is not a contest to see who can win, with their point of view. You have an opinion and you express it in the way you see fit. The point I was trying to get across to you is; people come here to learn, get advice and possibly make a difference, in a positive way, in someone elses life. Why, Why, Why do you feel it makes sense to add negativity to peoples lives. Does it serve a purpose to you? Do you feel that it is the only way to reach people? Honestly, I am trying to understand why people do this. I am not being sarcastic or trying to antagonize you in anyway.
I guess this is for anyone out there that feels like addressing people in a negative way is productive. I don't understand it. Life is hard enough, painful enough and stressful enough strictly on it own.

You just joined it seems. You haven't been around this forum to see how things really are. Like I said, check out the various posts and threads from months ago, you'll be suprised.

I check back here every couple of days to see in the tone of the discussion has changed, and to see if you are still trying to bring civility to this thread. And here you are! I'll probably not check back again since it seems to have degenerated into a thread for a group of friends chatting together and insulting anyone who has a different opinion - or worldview for that matter. I wish you luck, and hope you continue to be a ray of civility wherever you go -
God bless -

The tone of every thread changes, my God are you that naive that you cannot see it. Are you that naive that you cannot see this whole forum for what it really is? Go back to December and see how I was treated after my very first post. That has happened to the majority of people here so I am not just talking about myself only. Dec 9th I believe was my first post. Go back and see how many people have been treated around here, it won't stop and it is not because of me alone, it was like this before. If you cannot handle it, perhaps this isn't the place for you.

Thank you for adding another positive voice. Hopefully the positive comments will spread, regardless of peoples view on Methadone. Everyone can get their point across without belittling anyone else.

The 40mg are still allowed to be prescribed by clinics now, but no longer for pain. You're right.

As you will notice, the pro-mmter's make alot of excuses for other's behaviors, but as soon as one die's, then it's like their own damn fault. Talk about some double standard BS. Love, Mary

Oh, sorry to keep waiting, I forgot totally that you existed.
If you don't want to be attacked, shut up. Very simple and straught to the point.
You're an addict, that is that.
I will further my cause in the way I see fit not the way you see fit.
Do not tell me not to judge, I will judge as I have been judged here.
Do not EVER tell me that something I chose to do is a pointless use of my life, I do not do drugs, I do not participate in illegal activities, I am a wonderful mother....this to me constitutes a ver full and gratifying life. You, however are an addict. This constitutes loss of freedom, devoid of all feeling and dependence on your precious methadone for life. Just becareful now, you may be our next OD.

There are many other threads on this forum, if you do not like my posts, do not read them, rather simple.

Wow??? Go back a few months ago here on this forum, you'll see some worse stuff.

If you cannot take what you read here like a little spoiled girl, perhaps you don't belong here.

My mother recently passed away , and methadone was a contributing factor, the police are not interested about it being sold to her even though all the evidence is there, something needs to be done..
