    the Pacific was awesome series I watched it on HBO when it came out. Pretty gruesome stuff they went through....Thank a Vet when you can....


    I really don't understand the addiction. I've taken pain killers for over 10 years so yes I'm physically addicted....but the people that take them to get high I don't see The appeal
    They just make me tired. I like to be moving. Some of it is probably my tolerance...but seriously these people that pop them by the hands full I don't get it...:/

    Pain pills give you an euphoric feeling, they make you happy and hopeful, I do understand the appeal, then of course you fall asleep. Not an addict, just get it.

    I don't know I take morphine three times a day...I get nothing but a little pain relief and tired. And not that great of pain relief.

    Morphine made me dizzy and I couldn't see straight or stay awake long, that didn't make me happy.

    if be better with NSAIDS...but can't take them because my kidneys are damaged. I think years ago when I first started taking Vicodin I might have got that good feeling..but it didn't last long.
    Although I got decent pain relief for a long time until one day they just quit working....

    That would be horrible, I've been taking Ibuprofen every day for 30 years, I do worry about my kidneys because of juvenile diabetes, we seem to be a pair of old people.

    I'm 51...but I feel much older....I just have had a lot of health issues that ruined my body.....and being a mechanic for thirty years did the rest.
    Pain meds just help round the pain off
    But does nothing for the inflammation.
    I've even developed cyst on my bones because of chronic inflammation.

    I have all over arthritis, had both shoulders replaced, and multiple surgeries and of course the chemo, I think we are both in the same boat. Edited to add I feel very old.
