Worked with a guy that was passing a kidney stone, opiates were doing zilch for him. In walks his kid and says try this Pops, so he did. He smoked a little herb and he told me his pain went away. Cannabis is an excellent non-steroidal anti inflammatory and its not addictive with none of that opiate hang over feeling.

I live with pain. No meds docs wont give them out to many hooked on them for using them wrongly.
2 shots of brandy in a glass of wine and 2 shots of grape juice, mix well and drink before bed. I sleep well with no pain the rest of my day like now I just bear it.
What you need is 6 to 8 pieces of 10 mg Valium (2 - 2 times in the first 8 hrs, and 1 - every 4 hours for the next 24 hours, no way to get addicted but helps a lot), And 5mg Codeine with 300mg Tylenol 1 every 8 hours for the next five days. Like I said already no way to get addicted using them like that.

My aunt took me shopping last night at a nice department store. I had an important court date this morning (haven't done anything illegal, has to do with my mortgage). For this part, I had to go pro se, free legal services have done mainly what they can do, over 6 pr 7 years.
I got a new dress, a light summer blazer and some wedge heeled sandals. I haven't worn heels in some time, other that wide heeled 3-4 inch boots. Wedges seemed safe.
Court went great. Got all the things I asked for. Walked all over downtown in these comfy shoes. Up and down steep steps in County hall. I was very happy with them.
I get home and needed to make a call to the opposing law firm. Walked in the den. Tripped on an edge of carpet and the next thing I know I am sort of midair and hearing someone scream like bloody murder. The scream, was apparently me. I felt parts of my right foot move from one side to another side along with 4 or 5 feelings like a tearing inside.
I was then on the ground. I attempted to get up. Moving or putting weight on my right foot was NOT going to happen. My cell phone was not charged. I could not get up into the chair in front of the computer for skype. I crawled, finally, to the unused 'obamaphone' on a charger in the hall.
I called 911. I go to the ER. A PA looks at my x rays, says a bad sprain or major tears. Really, thanks genius. But he refers me to an orthopedic surgeon. I tell him I already have one, which I do and have an appt on thursday. This PA, probably about 22 years old, says he is sending a Rx for 600 mg ibuprofin to my pharmacy (&*^*%*(%)*%). I don't have a headache or muscle ache, I hurt so much I am still half crying every other minute.
I ask him if perhhaps something stronger can be prescribed. He says "No, we don't do that for this."
I picked it up, but am relying on Meloxicam (an antiinflammatory) my ortho dr gave me for my knees and cyclobenzaprine, a mild thing for back spasms from my primary dr I had at home. Neither of which are really for pain.
The world has just gone mad. I would have taken a script for 5 days worth.
I will need to find a friend to drop off liquor, a shot or 2 would help me right about now.
Irritated and in pain reldra rant over .

I always knew you were a partyer deep down like me.
This whole situation is really #ed up because doctors are becoming unwilling to control pain and that is because of government intervention and the war of drugs.

it's not just the prescriptions, it's what they do in the hospitals...my friend was in the hospital for almost a month...very crowded, very busy...you could hear patients moaning and groaning in pain...the nurse told me that it used to be the nurse could over ride and give the pt something until the doc could finally get around to seeing them
the law was changed and they can't do that anymore,so they have to keep telling the pat that they have to wait ubtil the doc came around first....the nurses were frustrated with this but their hands are tied...
the doc should have said R.I.C.E. Rest..Ice...compression...elevation......only ice pack the first 48 hours then can switch to hot compresses........do they have those new scooters to rent? you hold the handlebars walk on you good leg.. the bad leg is bent...knee in the front of the scooter foot in the back??? www.kneerover.com...
maybe you can rent one....DL pheny is not hippy dippy, they have done actual tests on it, showing it does work though I know a lot of things out there are hippy dippy and don't believe everything on the internet...always do a little research

the answer is simple
All of life is a chemical experience, even when "sober", legalize them all.
