Oh so stoned am I

The pain clinic doctor wants me on the oxycodine stuff..... yes that stuff that you hear on the news that is so addictive because it is basically heroin in pill form. She wants me on it now so that I can start to cut back on the stuff that is acetimphene based and because she feels I will be on something long term. She also has me journaling my pain. This will help them weeks from now when they begin to try and assess how they can best help me and what therapies are gonna work. I am so so stoned. And of course I thought that I could just shift meds and be ok, but no I have to still take them both for now and hopefully by the end of the week (maybe much sooner) only be on the one. I am afraid. I'm so scared. I called my father because he has actually done a lot with injured workers and takes pain meds himself and he is good at this one little part of my life. LOL, well.... he is. I think it is because it is the only place he and I can go that doesn't get us all trapped in the past.

Still can't sit up long enough to play my game. BUT I am trying to catch up on all my blogging buddies. Working on a poem to share with you all soon but it is hard to work thru' the miasma that is in my brain right now.

Hey Achromic, it is so nice to see you back and I am hoping that all this work and pain that you are going through will indeed work out so that you are in a much better way and hopefully soon.

I brought a buddy with me and she is going to comment next!

Welcome back, dearie! But don't overdo. You could easily find yourself having bad/worse days after you feel good one day. I did that a few times in my after-surgery days! Stay away from 'puters and just relax. Read or watch tv or sleep. Eat yogurt if you can, for the protein for those muscles to rebuild. I had major abdominal surgery a longtime ago; and I KNOW what you're going through.

Don't be afraid. Yes, the oxy is strong, but you won't have trouble getting off the stuff when you don't need it anymore. I just know!

Besides we're all here to help.
Got to go get some zzzz's meself. Hang in there! We love you and are still praying for speedy/full recov.!

Achromic...enjoy your time of actually have an excuse NOT to be doing things. I ditto may have some days rougher than others. BUT, you will be able to manage the pain with the pain medication and you will be successful in weaning yourself from them when the time comes for that.

Continued prayers for you...and will you please pray for a young friend of mine who is about to deliver a baby? She has high blood pressure, has been on blood thinners for seven months, and the doctors are saying they will need to induce the baby if he does not start moving by the 20th. A C-section is more probable with an induction, so please pray that little 'bear' will decide to get a move on and that Bekka will be fine.

Now - you can pray while lounging around the house, while not doing a thing!

Blessings -

ok Lee Ann, I will pray in my own wacko way. I know that I sure do hope that you friend gets both her baby and her life! She must be terrified I know I would be.

I wonder... I can't remember from your weight loss pictures, how much red-headed-ness do you have? I'm wondering because opiates don't work very well on redheads (i.e. people with two or more mutations in the melanocortin 1 receptor gene) There was an article about it recently (can't remember the link). Anyway, I'm glad you're home, I'm glad you're recovering. If your pain meds don't work, keep trying until you find one that *does* work.

LOL SDID! There isn't a real redhead bone in my body. *hangs head in shame* I'm afraid that I was a blond that is now a dirty blond with some gray (ouch) if I do nothing.

S'ok, hon. My hair is starting to look like a candy cane. Red with white stripes. :D
Hope you're feeling much, much better, every day.
