Would just like to know if there is someone else out there taking methadone for chronic pain. My daughter has been brain washed into thinking that it will give you a high because it is prescribed to herion addicts. I have tried to explain to her that it doesn't give me a high. It levels me out to where as long as I am not physically active I am not in intolerable pain at times. I have tried to explain that my doctor prescribed it to me after years of pain that has not been alieved by other pain medication. It was not a decision that was taken lightly. I didn't even take it for the first week because of being afraid of being addicted to it but pain beat out fear. I pray to god that some day they will be able to prescribed a medication that doesn't come with so many stipulations. I cry sometimes because I have something that is rare. Our doctors in my area are not very well educated in this area. Worse of all I feel alone.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
