Feeling great for the first time in three years

Posted by DTC40 , 04 April 2013 · 113 views

I have been fighting with bone cancer for three years. Lately the docs put me on a pain med that after taking for six months I found out was synthetic heroine. The last time I went to the ER they gave me a pain med one step stronger than Morphine and it took away the bone pain but gave me a migraine so bad I was hallucinating. Today, for the first time since I was a teenager I gave in and took two hits of pot, which I know is illegal but I was completely out of pain all day I was able to sleep for the first time in months without waking up in pain. I went bike riding with my adult son and three teenage daughters and was able to do some house work. I feel like a new person. I have mixed feelings in knowing it is illegal and then knowing it will stop my pain and I can live a relatively normal life. I hid it from the kids and they have no idea why I was out of pain and having so much energy. Anyway guess I just needed to talk. Do not want to give my kids the impression it is okay to do drugs but not sure what the difference is in pot and synthetic heroine that they give me that is highly addictive and does not really take the pain away.

Pot is legal here in Colorado. Are you able to get a script for it from your doctor.

I am sorry for all your pain. I have heard that bone cancer is very very painful. I have chronic health issues that render me in pain everyday. I have not tried pot to help but may consider it.

When it comes to pain I say whatever works. What works for one person does not work for another.

I hope you many more days out of pain and able to enjoy all the things you like to do pain free.

Take good care of you.
