I have been given a few diffrent meds such as, Lortab, Vicodin, Percoset, & Tramadol. I've been on Lortab though for the last four or so years. I have been seeing a pain doctor for the last year or so and it's been going pretty good. I do suffer from very bad pelvic pain so it is legit pain, but I need to find other ways to deal with it. Sometimes I felt I was so wrapped up in how bad the pain was just to get more pills when really maybe it wasn't that bad.
I guess for me it came to a point that number one I would run out of medication to early before my next refill, and go through a few days with no meds then when I would get them I would go nuts and take like 10 - 15 a day. The same thing over and over and over. My poor body has been throught hell and I felt like S*@T everyday and I was just plain sick and tried of it. Worring about refills, counting out my pills, how I would feel when I would take them, tried to cover up everything even though I looked and felt like crap. I just want to feel normal again. Ya it is a struggle everyday and I still find myself wanting to pick up the phone and call to get more pills because I know I can get them right away. But then I look back to last week when I was withdrawing and how I felt and I never want to go through that again. It also came to a point when I did realize the pills can"t go on FOREVER they will stop at some point then what? When I get a bottle of them they may last for a few days but no matter what there will never be enough. It will never be enough I want more more more and I have a problem and need to stop. :)
