I am 54 yrs old and live in Canada . Had a hyper-extension neck injury in 1987 which ruptured a disc which was never properly treated and as a result, now suffer with moderate to severe chronic pain. Started on Oxycontin in 2002 and started to abuse them approx. 3 years
[More] ago. Am sick of being controlled and want to get back to taking them as prescribed and eventually get off them.
Love my children and grandchildren and I want my life back to enjoy it with them! I am a spiratual person and enjoy the outdoors and animals.
Just wondering how you are? I saw your post about trying to get back to your prescribed dose. Was it possible? I'm in pretty much the same boat as you and am now considering treatment with Subutex or Suboxone. Going to talk to the doctor today about it. You should check it out. Helps pain and stops the withdrawals and the insanity of chasing pills, buying pills, snorting etc. Hope your doing well.
