i do not by any means consider myself to be a drug addict. I use drugs on occassion .. usually a few times a month .. although sometimes that increases to a couple times a week. I like pain killers and alcohol. Just snorted 3 VIc ESers and am drinking some wine to take the edge off. Nothing seems to take the edge off like drugs .. they give me a little mood boost and with PK's I dont wake up with a hangover or feeling worse about my life or anything. I dont know .. is this really a problem? I guess I am playing with fire here, but i dont consider it to be that dangerous becuase I keep it under control. I want someone or somehting to take away the pain that I feel , but that pain never goes away. I take medicine, but it doesnt do anything. Sometimes drinking and drugs are my only outlet. Exercise will help on occassion, but I think i really like having that buzz now and again to take some of the pain away for a short time. This sounds pathetic and is something that I would have frowned upon a few years ago .. before things got bad. I dont really get fucked up to get fucked up .. I get fucked up to take relieve some pain from my tormented mind, body, and soul .... is that really so bad? Maybe it COULD lead to addiction, but I am strong willed enough to limit my use. Please dont tell me to tlak to a health care professional .. they dont really help .. i guess I just want to know if anyone else out there feels like this about their drug use. i guess i just want to talk to someone cuz im lonely as hell and full of hurt.

I'm done. The buck gets passed again and again and again. There is no dignity in living like this. Finally saw the ortho today. No explanation for the increased pain. No sort of examination, nurse didn't even take a temp or blood pressure. (Though this might be standard for ortho, I'm not sure.) The doc reiterated his opinion that any surgical intervention would make things worse. He suggested...
