I just get high on Jesus.
That's against T&C.
Lighten Up. Sheesh. This is a rant to begin with.....
I have sever chronic back pain. It cant be fixed with an easy surgery. I in the beginning I managed it with Ibuprofen over the counter, slowly
over time I needed more, because my back was getting worse. No other Over the counter medication worked, accept regular aspirin, but that gave me
acid stomach, Tylenol and all the others were no good at all. Finally the Ibuprofen after a year and a half started making me sick.
I then Started going to pain management, and was given Norco 10 325, those worked for about 3 years, and now I take Oxy 10 325....They do not get me
High, I do not abuse them. I take less, if I can, but never more.
I have to jump through hoops because of all of these laws. I have to personally go to the doctor, every single month. Pay the copay. I have to take
and pay for out of pocket random Urine tests, given about every other month. They make sure I do not test positive for any illegal drugs, or
prescription opioids not prescribed by them. If I fail, I am immediately banned, not just there , but in the entire state of California.
And finally go and HOPE I can even find a pharmacy that has my medication. I don't really have that problem now, because I quit going to CVS, because
I hated it. It was always Busy, took forever and they were constantly our of my medication. I then found out each CVS is only allowed by the
government so many pills of these per month. So within a couple of weeks they would run out.
What makes it even worse, if a pharmacy is out of you pain medication, it doesn't matter what pharmacy, they are not even allowed here in So Cali to
call another Walgreens, CVS whatever and find out if those pharmacies have them or not. They cant give the information over the phone. So I used to
have to sometimes go to 3 or 4 pharmacies to get my meds, before I found one that actually had them in stock.
It really sucks...And I really get pissed when people say suck it up. This pain can bring me to tears every now and again. Thank God With my
epidurals my pain, with my meds, has been tolarable.
