Otter0407 - what you said describes me...I think

This was posted by Otter0407 on a thread that is now closed....

There is even a term called pseudoaddiction, which describes a state in which the patient's pain is under-treated or untreated and all they are doing is trying to get some relief for their never ending pain. And they are frustrated and upset because they hurt and no one is helping them, so sometimes their behavior is considered to be "drug-seeking" when it is the normal behavior of a person who justs wants a break from the pain.

I believe this might be a term to describe me. Anyone else heard of this? Or, Otter, are you still on here to elaborate on this?
