    I made a couple of obnoxious posts this afternoon. I saw that Mikie has removed the threads....i actually removed my posts from those threads. I realized that I was being antagonistic and didn't really want to start that up again.

    Not reallyj an excuse, but I am feeling horrible today, in a bad flare, and also feeling irritalbe and short fused, to say the least.

    My apologies to anyone who was offended.

    The real problem is this DD which is getting darn hard to live with. I hate the way it interferes with life, as does the depression, addictions, etc.

    On the pity pot.

    Madwolf was correct.....this is news to me. Posted form another web site.....

    How can people in pain, who take prescribed opioids, avoid addiction?
    I don't want to scare people. There are millions of people who take prescribed pain medicines for various reasons, and most people don't become addicted. When you're in acute pain, and you don't have a history of addiction to other substances, it is unlikely that you become addicted to drugs used for your treatment. If you know that you have had addiction to other substances, you need to tell your physician, and you need to stop using the medicine as soon as the pain is gone.

    Anyone who is on one of these narcotics for three or four weeks will become dependent. They may not show the psychological manifestations of addiction, but they will be physiologically dependent. So the message is, if you need the pain medicine, take it, but stop taking it when you're no longer feeling pain.

    The light dawns

    It is mighty graceous of you to apologize. I don't think any of us is feeling so hot and it's easy to let things get to us.

    I hope you are feeling better. Little prayer going up.

    Love, Mikie

    I added the info I found on another web site. This information is almost inconceivable to me, being an alcoholic and an addict.
    I am glad people can take the medication they need without becoming addicted.
    This is good news.

    I was able to find your posts by going to the search box and typing in "addiction".
    You can also find your posts by clicking on your screen name at the upper right hand corner of the page, where it says "You are logged in as....."
    All your posts are there.

    Have a good one.....

    I know where you are coming from!!!! I have been doing gardening which I dearly love, but as usual I let it get away from me as far as time spent is concerned. Consequently I am in so much pain that I am a bear to live with and they always say we hurt the one closest to us so my poor husband has been on the receiving end. It fills me with guilt as he is so understanding of this disease so round and round it goes. "I`m sorry" really does`nt fill the bill anymore.I know I need more pain meds. but really dislike the idea of more oxycontin. This is really a dispicable disease.!!!!! Hang in there.

    If you want to remove a message you've posted in a thread, open that thread and scroll down to your message. On the left are two words printed in red. They say "delete" and "edit". Just click on delete, and your message disappears.

    I imagine you can delete your thread the same way.

    I LOVE the picture on your profie. It should win an award!
    Is it your dog, or did you just come upon this scene?

    I'm putting addiction to rest for tonight. It really is a whole other ballgame than dependance. It's about not being able to say no. That's why "just say no" doesn't work too well.

    Nice chatting with all of you, I must try to get a decent nights sleep.

    I also posted in response to you. I know you were trying to just simply give added information & it wasn't taken with that heart. Maybe people were having a bad day. I've been having a fair day. Have had much worse.

    You are very welcome to be here, so please don't feel otherwise. I can't remember how to delete a post unless it's next to the edit button next to where you've posted.

    Mikie, Shirl or the web person deleted a post I made to attempt to clear up some misconceptions, which they do sometimes. That's why posts may be gone when you return sometimes. Also, it's such a busy board that they may have already rolled to the next page. It's a really busy board.

    We try to keep the titles short so a posted topic won't roll to the next page before someone has time to get to it. Sometimes we can only stay on a short while & respond to few.

    So welcome. dolsgirl
