Just Say No To Drugs

Monday, February 4th, 2008 • No Comments on Just Say No To Drugs

Thanks for all the well wishes regarding my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad back pain.  I managed to survive with a minimum of pharmaceuticals and a maximum of rest, heat and gentle stretching.  I don’t know what that was, but I do not want it back.  I have been neglecting my Pilates and yoga, which is soon to change.  Plus, I think I’ll make an appointment for a massage.  Couldn’t hurt, right? 

I have to say, I really do not understand the appeal of narcotics.  Vicodin did nothing but make me fuzzy-headed.  I was told by more than one person that such drugs don’t completely eliminate the pain, but they make you not care about the pain.  Hmm?  I want a drug that leaves me clear-headed, fully-functioning and pain-free.  Does such a thing exist?  That would be addictive to me—not this silly muddle-headed medicine that left me sleepy and unable to form complete sentences.  (Silly me, even when I’m in pain I want to get some work done.)  I always avoided narcotics because of the warnings of possible addiction, but my delicate nature is safe from the evils of Vicodin.
