Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board

Aloha All, :wave:

I don’t know if there is anyone here who will remember me, I don’t see any names that I recognize off the bat here on the first page, but I just wanted to stop by and say hi. HI!

OK see ya. Just kidding, I just wanted to let you all know that I think about coming here all the time, I really miss you all, but it’s been near impossible to do so as of late. My world has been eat, sleep, and study for the last couple of months. After 30 something years of being away from school, it has been difficult at best to get back into the swing of things. With pain still being an issue, along with my Neurontin and Vicodin, my concentration and short term memory are all but shot. Yes I’m still taking these stupid meds. I imagine that the Neurontin will more than likely be a lifetime affair, and I’ve tried to wean myself off of the Vicodin, but to no avail; I’d rather take the meds than deal with the pain. I am sitting a lot and this sometimes becomes very difficult unless I take the meds, so meds it is.

Man, there always seems to be a fresh stream of new pain fellows in this forum, may God Bless you all, you have come to the right place. I would have been lost with out this hamlet, especially in the early days; I found and reaped countless benefits and kept my sanity with a place to recite all of my quirky little rants and vents. There were some pretty heated exchanges, but that is what makes this place so special, and interesting. There are some wonderful people here that have helped me get through one of the toughest chapters of my life, as far as that goes, I am still basically in the same chapter, it hasn’t really been that long, but I am very glad that I found this site when I did, it truly did make an extraordinarily difficult state of affairs bearable.

I wish that I had more time to spend here and fire off some exchanges, but the next 3 or 4 years are going to be very trying and will be the foundation for the rest of my life, so my presence here will be minimal, but I am planning on popping in from time to time to stir the waters. I wish everyone well and may you all find that magic potion that makes life bearable once again, it will get better, at least that’s what I tell myself every single night before I go to bed. It will get better…it will get better…it will get better…g’nite!
