Let’s Talk About Drugs

leslie knope your life.

Alright gang, as many of you know I completed a pain treatment program at Mayo Clinic PRC and discontinued my Vicodin, Tramadol, and occasional Percocet. For those who don’t have prior knowledge, I attended PRC to learn to better manage my pain not because I was addicted to pain medication [nothing against those who better their lives who are coping with addiction]. It has been 6 months and I have not taken any pain medication since completing the program. I had turned over all of the pain medication I had with me after completing the program but found duplicates of all the medications in my medication drawer back home that I had forgotten about. For 6 months I have sat on this medication due to either some sort of emotional attachment or because I was afraid I would legitimately need it. Today I turned over all, and I do mean ALL narcotics to the police station narcotic disposal. It may not seem like much but I got rid of my ‘safety net’ of pain medication and somehow feel more prepared to stay pain medication free.

  3. What a huge step! It takes a lot of courage to give up that security blanket. Even if you don’t use it, knowing it’s available to you can provide a lot of comfort. Congratulations.

  4. Hi, Living life with constant chronic pain is so hard. My Dr’s keep prescribing pain killers for me until they find the “RIGHT” regimine for me. I have family who are addicted to pain killers and when my son’s dad was dying of cancer his wife got hooked on HIS pills. So I try my darnest NOT to take anything. I don’t want my son seeing that again. Its so hard and they do make you feel good but anyone who can learn new or different methods is a brave person to me. Thank you for sharing
