    No worries, mate. I didn't take your post personally, and I know you weren't talking about people like me. I was just jumping in to have fun and chat.
    :h5:

    In my state, they don't seem to hand out opiods or benzodiazepines. They're very selective who they prescribe them to, and they almost always require you to see a specialist for evaluation and prescriptions. Despite having PTSD and panic attacks, I'm not on a benzodiazepine currently. My doctors said that I could only be prescribed either the opioids or benzodiazepines, not both. Since my anxiety is under better control nowadays and my pain is the biggest contributor to my anxiety, I chose the opioids. It's a bit annoying to me because I inherited an extremely high tolerance to both of those. Percocet is the WEAKEST opioid that actually works for me. Vicodin, morphine, etc. do next to nothing for me. The morphine helps a little bit, but I metabolize it in 20 to 40 minutes. That's not much relief! For anxiety x@nax is the only one that works for me, and even then, I have to have at least 1 mg for any effect. When I have a bad panic attack, I need 2 mg. The rest will make me a tad bit sleepy at most, with the exception of klonopin. For some reason, if I take just 1 klonopin, I will crave it for several days afterward, despite it doing nothing for my anxiety. Needless to say, I called my psychiatrist and did NOT take it again!

    Very interesting stuff. Klonopin used to work well for my restless legs, but now, nothing. The X@n@× works well for those occasional nights that magnesium doesn't calm my legs

    I'm so very grateful that we have the pharmaceuticals available for the peeps who really need them

    Me too. I wish the US didn't have so many issues with addiction though. It can be a real struggle to jump through all the hoops for those of us who really need the meds.

    I so admire your spirits. You still have fun with our Forum Loons (myself included).

    My Beloved Wife marvels that i maintain such a positive disposition, despite being chronically tired from my sleep deprivation.

    But what else can i do? It's one of my Crosses to bear. Others have heavier Crosses.

    I do have a lot of fun here. I love the community and different people and personalities. I'm glad you're able to stay positive.

    While I do appreciate your kind words, I'm far from the most positive person out there. On the forum and with friends, I try to keep my problems and thoughts to myself to support others. I'm a very empathetic person, so I try to bring other people up.

    As for what my wife sees, I'm incredibly difficult to live with. I have PTSD, GAD, OCD, panic disorder, major depression, nightmares, night terrors, and chronic pain, nausea, and abdominal cramps. When I'm alone or with my wife, whom I can be 100% open with, I'm honestly a very bleak and depressing person. I try to always hold on to a bit of hope, but I'm cynical in nature. Five years have gone by with no answers, and my health has steadily declined so it's hard to think that will ever turn around. Plus, my wife has had chronic migraines nearly every day for about 9 years now with no answers. It's hard to see the person you care most about like that all the time, me seeing her sick AND her seeing me sick. She's an absolute saint - easily the most caring, loving, and beautiful soul I've ever met. I can spill my guts to her, all my pain and hopelessness, and she sticks with me - as depressing and inconsolable as I can be. She's much better at remaining positive. She's a tough woman! She's quite inspiring.

    How I project myself on the forum and with friends is that small, empathetic, positive side of myself that wants to help others, be encouraging, and to make others feel better and help them through their problems. That's also the side of me I try to hang onto with my wife, but she also sees the worst of me. If I didn't have her to support me and keep my chin up, I probably wouldn't be able to keep any positivity or be a member of this forum. I would still be a recluse spending all day in bed. So, because she can stay with me through it all, I also stay with her through it all, though I think she's much easier to live with than I am. With her around, I still struggle a lot with my depression, but it's hard to completely give up when I have her.

    And even then..they treat people who truly need them like junkies, while scammers get multiple scrips to sell...

    Sad but true... I have best friends that go through this very thing even though they have documented, provable disorders!

    Like pulling teeth, and then just enough and no more! Sometimes less, than what they need..

    With very little fanfare, @cherrysunburst00 has crept in on 10,000 posts himself.
