Re: Is anyone taking methadone for pain?

I would discuss what your pain levels are keeping you from doing. Be specific and say, "while I am feeling better, I still cannot play with my kids, and mow the lawn." "These things are important to me and my #1 goals as far as pain management." Talk about what you want/need to do, and how the pain levels you are experiencing are keeping you from them.

Also, tell him what you told us....that he is nervous now because you disclosed your addiction. Let him know that you will continue to be honest, and will alert him immediately to any of the same thoughts, actions, ect. Let him know however, that this problem is different, and not about chasing a high. It is about gaining the quality of life you deserve. Good luck!
