Oxycodone-No Stranger To The Rain - Part 32

  1. Dear JD,

    Thanks for the medication suggestion
    Yes, it is incredibly frustrating to realize you might really need something to ease whatever ails us. You suffered severe trauma to your body at the hands of a patient. I imagine it also caused a lot of emotional distress too.

    You are right again. It is what it is. I feel so much better now, just realizing that I am not a failure. I have been through the mill with prescriptions, but I also suffer physical pain and extreme anxiety at times.

    I was put on benzos due to what was situational anxiety due to physical abuse and downright fear of my now .ex-husband. The pain meds were for realty physical pain, but they also helped to numb my emotions.

    I am so glad your husband is doing better. I know marital stress is really hard to deal with.

    Best wishes to you and your family and may lasting peace be yours.

    Love GDW

    Yeah, the incident messed with my head in the beginning but honestly the injury pushed me to pursue my PhD and ultimately improved many aspects of my life...except of course the persistent pain. I try to hang on to the good in it but it is hard.

    SSRI/SNRIs have changed my life. After coming off the opiates, I felt awful emotionally. Within 4 days of taking Cymbalta, my emotional health shifted dramatically. Long term use of opiates just fucks the endocrine system. I see so many posts here (not the recovery board) talking abut the fact that opiates are "not so bad" and nothing could be farther from the truth. People like to delude themselves. Opiates whack the HPA axis and disturb neurotransmitters in the brain. There is a reason withdrawal sucks so bad. The body's brain and endocrine system is totally screwed up. The body can repair some of it but it takes 2 years. SSRIs help reset some parts faster.

    OK. Off to work. Hope you are well.
