Re: What Relationships?

My coping strategy is similar to yours but not so coherent :) - Also - a big one - I have lowered my expectations. I can't do as much as I used to, and I can't do it as well, but I'm still a nice person and have some intrinsic value. ... - Another thing I'm working on is de-stressing. My job has be...

Now I know the feeling, but it's very painful, and every time it happens, it still makes me wonder if I'm having a heart attack even though I'm...

saying hello

Hi all, I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I've had my 3 month anniversary on my new job and it's going well. I have 3 more months to go before I get off new employee probation. That has been my main focus these past few months. RLS wise, I am doing more or less ok on 5-10 mg oxycodone per night. I...

Glad you enjoyed it. I've been seeing more of these lately, which is a good thing.

Re: Kratom berry compote

Do you need to tell your sleep medicine doctor that you're going somewhere else? I haven't told my back surgeon I'm going to a pain management doctor (recommended by by primary care doctor) because he so egotistical he'll never accept the surgery didn't fix my symptoms. I've had my primary care Dr ...

Re: Opioid Interview on TV

Great point badnights!

When I say pain I'm thinking of the paper that described how itching, electrical sensations, etc are considered a form of pain.

Re: More negative news on opioids

Totally hear you. I'm on that med! I'd verify it with other sources though; I have some questions about that source's integrity.
