No, what she needs is for do-gooders to stop hurting the innocent while “saving” evil people from themselves.
Every person who took dope that ended up in your hospital put themselves there. Marie does not deserve to suffer in pain because junkies can’t control themselves.
My wife is a personal trainer. She has seen first hand what a sedentary lifestyle coupled with poor eating habits does to people.
The differences between my wife’s scenario and yours are: 1. More people suffer and die from being sedentary and eating crap than from dope, 2. poor diet and lack of exercise costs us far more in healthcare costs than illegal dope and 3. my wife hasn’t made herself such a do-gooder that she’ll send you to prison for eating McDonalds . . . and there is no medical reason to eat McDonalds.
As Hank Williams said, “Mind your own business and you won’t be minding mine.”
Like I said...it sounds like "Marie" needs a better doctor.
You hit on something there. With pain medicine, I can function. I do my physical therapy. I can MOVE. I can control my diet.
Without pain medication, I’m sitting my chair, in agony. I’m punished for every attempt to get better. I’m eating carbs to feed the stress reaction and sleep deprivation.
Sometimes I feel like I’m being punished for being a WOD nazi. I was the anti-drug queen.
Then reality hit and I realized that I didn’t know what the hell I’d been preaching about. I’d thought that I knew what pain was.
