I hope to get a lot of input on this issue as I have been struggling greatly with going back on opiods. Because of the opioid dependency/addiction rampage, the scare tactics on this issue are quite irritating and disconcerting. I weaned myself off of oxycodone after my gallbladder surgery this year. One, because I was so sick I couldn't get to the pain doc and Two, because one of the ER docs was so snipey to me about taking them for "non descript" pain. My pain is not non descript. I have a giant cyst laying on the nerve branch to my upper body, low back sacroilitis / spondyliosis and in my neck and mid back. I'm basically a mess.
I am saying all this, because I am frustrated and in pain 24/7. I had a life while on 3-4 oxycodone a day at 10mg. It was the only thing that worked for me. I recently heard Dr. Drew state that narcotic pain pain medicine should not be used past 2 weeks. Gee, doc, have you been in 4 major accidents in your life? I don't understand that statement.
Please, somebody, anybody, help me understand that I am not alone in thinking that long term maintenance on opioids does not always lead to addiction?

You know that moment where you're just sitting there and suddenly you just realize how hard life's been recently and that you've just never had the opportunity to reflect on it and now that everything's quiet and you can think you can see how tired you really are? Life is so freaking tiring, man. I am so emotionally exhausted. I have to fight off thoughts that I'm a failure and still power...
