Drugs; can’t live with em, can’t live without em

Drugs; can’t live with em, can’t live without em

Before I became ill I was a tylenol girl.  I wouldn’t take anything but tylenol.  For everything.  If a doc wanted to prescribe me a pain killer I always turned it down saying “I don’t take anything but tylenol”.  Boy those days are long gone…

I now have to take so many different medications to help prevent my body from attacking itself and also for the pain because the prevention drugs aren’t the ‘cure’.  I still hurt.  Anyways, recently my doc prescribed the fentanyl patch.  You put it on and change it every 3 days.  It has helped me to some degree.  What scared me the most is that I am taking multiple pain meds and I still feel the pain.  What if I didn’t have these medications?  Could I survive the pain?  It scares me to think about it.  I got off track…my brother sent me an email about a recall for the fentanyl patch.  Here is the link to the story.  If you are taking fentanyl, please read this story and check the manufacturer on your prescription.
