Most people don’t become addicted but when broke out of medical school doctors push pharmaceutical company sponsored opioids drugs on to un and under insured people in a crony capitalist system of course you’re going to have a drug problem.
This is my opioid experience:
I was 28 making 50k with good heath insurance. Had to get my wisdom teeth removed, took opioids for the pain when back to the doctor for a check up still had pain a bit of pain and he gave me more opioids. Stop taking them when no longer felt pain but was warned that my mood would dip and I already had ADHD anxiety and depression, so I called my therapist to increase my visits, stopped taking them when I stopped feeling pain, whine about the wasted $80 co pay because I never felt a dip. I had 10 pills left over and for 10 Sunday’s I was the most productive person I’ve ever been in my life. Literally started a business, fixed my credit, got all my documents together to go back to school, finished my herb garden that I started 5 years prior and cleaned and organized my house to holy perfection. And when the pills were done they were done but my life was a lot better for it.Caleb Burbank écrit: Sooooo no percs thenRNG _Max écrit: This is how juice wrld diedMark Hall écrit: Some people have chronic pain and don’t just break their arm.

The fact that doctors are taking away prescriptions to people who actually need them. The part where chronic pain patients are turning to the street for pain relief. Oh yeah! And the part about how millions of them turn to heroin because they can’t get pain relief for their chronic conditions. You left out alotHarri écrit: so biking is a gateway drug to heroin?J Salazar écrit: Tyga says 'WOW'Diego Carrillo écrit: Funny how she bashes medication then says “with the help of therapy and medication Susan finds pleasure once again”Scott Cupp écrit: Prozac works well in curving addiction to opiods or any addiction. True story.Doctor Boy écrit: We are just beginning the phase in Australia where the gp's are reducing endone prescribing. People soon won't be able to get endone from the gp. Those who are addicted to endone will either go through a terrible withdrawal or start using street fentanyl or heroin. This happened in the USA five years ago. Please seek help to get through the withdrawal rather than taking illegal drugs. We doctors care about you and want to be there to help you.Donovan Moreno écrit: So you put her on more medication jus smoke some weed broIdk btw écrit: A few days after peep passedsaulDseer écrit: Curse the day I found opioids and felt that euphoria… ever since I have never been the same.Ms. E Bear écrit: after i had a c-section the doctor give me opioid and boy did i feel good she only give me 20 pills and i wanted more but the doctor would not give me more think GodKGMetalOne96 écrit: No wonder suicide rates are increasing.

=))Dan Stevens écrit: Painkillers aren't the problem. Street drugs are. Meth, heroin, and so on.
