Re: Started my taper yesterday... Have a question
I applaud you for being honest.
I'm a chronic pain patient also, and used to take a lot of pills and yes, did abuse them a bit. Not much as narcs are so closely watched now, but I admit I did take extras. Very happy with the solution (had developed tolerances to everything-). Had a pain pump implanted about, well, about 2 years ago.(another missing time chunk). It delivers a tiny dose of dilaudid directly into the spine and has been a godsend. Recently the pain is worse and I honestly dont know if its "real" or because all senses are so acute in post-withdrawal. Hesitant to get dose increased, fear of getting back on the merry-go-round, you know?
If anyone wants more info on this kind of device, just write me.
