        • It’s certainly not all it’s cracked up to be. Takes 2+ hours to have even a mild effect. I can understand why people “accidentally” overdose trying to get pain under control.

          If I wasn’t writing down every time I take every pill, I’d never believe I’d taken them at all. Only my pain/medication log keeps me from taking more and more and more… tempting as it is to achieve a permanent relief.

          If I wasn’t committed to a wonderful guy who deserves the best (I once asked him why he was being so nice to me and he said “Because it makes me feel good about myself”), I sure wouldn’t be putting up with this anymore.

          But we made a pact that if one of us wants to leave (he’s had his own miseries in life), we have to get the other’s agreement. I think of how I’d feel if he did that to me and it makes my stomach heave. That’s what keeps me here. (along with a stubborn, inexplicable, and deeply buried kernel of warped optimism)
