@sailrjim  You're using the exact same words drug addicts use Jim... These were the same words my mom has been using for years and it will catch up to you sooner or later. We just helped my mom accept in-patient treatment for drug addiction yesterday. Pain pills are not a long term solution because you'll continually need to take more and more and as you get older your body won't metabolize it as well and you'll become less social, less productive, you'll lose your appetite, you'll get dehydrated and constipated and if left untreated you'll die. Of course until you hit bottom you aren't going to be motivated to do much as possible to manage your chronic pain without narcotics. There are so many alternatives. Of course RX opiate addicts will desperately try to convince themselves and those around them that there is no other option.
