  • To all my friends on pain meds, narcotic or not

      I agree100%!!!!!! It is all about how we feel. We need to do whatever we can to live a normal life, especially for our families. Not being in pain 24/7 makes us (I know me) a hell of alot more pleasant to be around!!!!

                Hi Jess, great post, why should we suffer in pain, when we can take meds that help us to live each day a little better. Way to go Jess, means a lot, especially as I have needed the stronger pain meds this week. I would say we are a strong bunch of ICers who live our lives the best possible way that we can. Hugs to you Jess for posting, mum Iris. kissing grouphug hi
                Today and every day you are loved, so don't be anxious about tomorrow, God will take care of you tomorrow; Live one day at a time.

                  To all that wrote, I could not agree more. Our families can only take so much seeing their loved ones in pain. And I am sick of hearing MYSELF complain!!!!

                          Thanks Jess kissing
                          My 2 sisters and I joke because 1 sister wouldn't take pain meds if they cut her leg off, the other sister is an RX addict and would kill for the buzz of pain meds and then there's me, who's on them and absoluately HATES the way they make me feel........

                          SO, we are NOT all a bunch of happy pill popping junkies
                          Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

                            Thank you for the great post! It is something that I need to read, because I feel guilty taking pain meds, but everyone around me knows that I am not too pleasant to be around when I don't! As my gp says "You would take a tylenol if you had a headache-so take your meds for your ic." How true. You post definitely makes me feel so much better! grouphug

                            Peace, Love, Health, and Happiness!
