    Does anyone have an opinion on whether those of us who have NASTY DD and take opiads like Percocet are actually drug addiicts or not?

    My husband is absolutely convinced I am addicted to percocet and that most of my pain is caused by it. I keep trying to tell him that I was in this massive pain BEFORE I was taking percocet and I generally only take one or two doses of 20mgs a day. Does this make me a druggy?

    What are your opinions. I don't know if I can take the pain of not taking the Percocet much longer. I have been cold turkey for a week now and he says I look so much better but the problem is I don't FEEL better. I worry that when one of my viral epsiodes hit I'm going to want to jump off the nearest bridge.
