Now wait a minute. I’ve never tried illegal “dope” either.
I was the ANTI-DRUG NAZI QUEEN of all time for decades.
I take my PRESCRIBED medications in the PRESCRIBED dosages at the PRESCRIBED times. Even if I’m in agony, I don’t cheat and take a pill early.
As the drug nazi queen, I always thought that this was for the ‘other’. The ‘druggies’. People who said, “my back hurts” and have no physical tests to prove otherwise.
I have found that the WOD applies to people dying (and I mean literally DYING) of cancer, people with broken backs, people with MS... it DOESN’T matter. If you have a dozen doctors and a hundred tests confirming that YOU ARE IN PAIN, the WOD will prevent you from getting pain relief.
I have never taken pot. But I know that my grandfather’s doctor tried to give it to him when he was dying of pancreatic cancer. It would’ve made him more comfortable with chemo, helped with the nausea and lessened his pain.
People who’re healthy cannot possibly understand how much life can suck when you’re broken.
Why in hell are we so worried about saving druggies from themselves that we’re willing to slit the throats of people who’re genuinely suffering???
Let Darwin’s Law pick off the druggies and help those in need of pain relief.
Just curious, why have you not tried marijuana to see if it offers you any relief for your pain? I don’t know that it would, but I know that after having torn both my quadriceps tendons five years apart, and once relying on vicodin and oxycodone and once relying mostly on marijuana, I had much more relief from the pain and fewer side effects with the marijuana. It was also much easier to stop using when the pain was no longer there.
