The words pain killers give the world the wrong impression. I may be taking this medication every day but I’m still in pain. The medication does not kill the pain it takes the edge off and makes it slightly more manageable so I can do something with my day. If I didn’t take the medication I would not have a life.
I live each and everyday in pain. Reading this may make some people uncomfortable knowing this fact but its the truth. I struggle in pain everyday taking pain medication doesn’t make me a drug addict. I’m not taking them to get high, I’m taking them so I can function and have some sort of life.
I struggle with the simplest of tasks and may need help, this requires me to get over the embarrassment of asking for help so please don’t then question why I cant do that or make a joke of it (as this can be very upsetting).
