    Agreed! :D Which is why I traded the pistol to my father, on the condition that he wouldn't sell or trade it. So, I still have access to it when I feel like relieving a little bit of stress.

    That sure doesn't sound like it's an equal or straight across change! I went from 50mg Fentynal patches to 40mg of Oxy 2x per day PLUS break thru meds. You might want to ask your doc again about...

    With the risk of sounding selfish, I'm glad I'm not alone. It's a very difficult thing to deal with, and most people don't understand it. That's probably the most frustrating thing of all.

    Mind over matter. Along with the pain meds. Nothing will ever completely take away the pain. You take what meds you can, and deal with the rest.
