I know there is some way to make that big "thumbs up" thing but I don't know how - so just imagine I made a whole string of them. Respect!

Hey cimes! I am a high functioning addict . As high functioning as one can being that toxic. Everyone was surprised except those closest and of course all the players. To be honest ,its the first time outside the hospital that i told how bad it was. Sometimes I forget that there are people that know me in real life here .Its my story, its some things that happened to me ,but, it doesn't define me in any way.

Get yourself some good Indica weed. The purple shit takes away the pain.

I just listened to Chris Bell on Rogan say taking 2 ibuprofen and 2 acetophenomen was shown to be clinically as effective as opiate painkillers...have looked it up yet though

I've tried three times. I'll be on it for the rest of my life, I fear.

SSRI's are by far the most dangerous, terrible mind fucking drug I've ever taken.

Any of your symptoms/conditions contraindicate using psychedelics?
I felt like Sertraline (100 mg)/day was fucking me up worse than any other craptastic behavior I was engaged in last year. My PCP at the time's answer was up it to 150. I said that is Mike Tyson's dosage. I asked if I could quit and he told me I was good to go at quitting cold turkey after 2 years of taking the drug. In less than 4 days, I was freaked out and went to a friend's house to bum some from him on an early Sunday morning. I am on a low dose of Celexa now and have been given go ahead by my new PCP to wean from it over 10 days. I'm on Buspar, too. Funny thing is, other than a few days here and there, I have not been depressed. Buspar, however, is good juju for me.

WRT painkillers: I fucking love/hate the Oxy/Booze superset.....talk about comfortably numb, but I tend to be a dick the next day. I like both way too much.

I'm allergic to all the standard opiods. :( I still fill the prescription but I have to load up on benadryl and the rash and itching take several days to go away.

I tried heroin once in my younger, stupid days. Immediately knew that I could never play with that shit, it's too nice and welcoming.
Took a couple of vicodin after I scratched my cornea, realized again that I am not made to toy with them.

I likely have two surgeries later this year, eye and umbilical hernia - strongly hoping I can grit it out with nothing stronger than ibuprofen and maybe some weed.

I had an umbilical repair and went back to the gym way too soon and paid for it in pain.

I had a buddy get the same repair and we went upland hunting 3 days after his repair and he was good to go.

Knuckles' story is very impressive. It is very easy to get hooked on prescription stuff, first of all because it doesn't register as bad. But like with any other drug, including alcohol, some can have it on weekends and some become dependent. I have addictive personality myself and discovered it in my student years, when we experimented with anything we could get our hands on. Which, in retrospect, wasn't much, opioids, ketamine (horrible shit) and some shit we could snatch from anaesthetic trolleys. In those times I had a very serious goal to become a doctor, and that kept me from becoming addicted. Now though, when my career is fully developed, I can see how easy it could be to get hooked if I tried to dabble in drugs. Anaesthetists have the highest incidence of drug addiction, mostly due to the availability. The worst drug to be hooked on is Propofol, the one that killed Michael Jackson. The final result is always fatal.

Hmmff! At the time, you told me you were having no problems. I got mine done about the same time but without the plastic mesh. I really did escape with no problems whatsoever but I quit the heavy lifting. That was in '04, wasn't it?

My mesh repair from 14 is holding strong. Kept up the heavy lifting and have hit many lifetime PR's since then.

Negative, sir.

All I recall was going back to the gym too soon and getting pretty sore in the repair area, prompting me to do some heavy hands walking at our indoor track, which Fat Cat found delightfully hilarious.

I didn't need to hit anymore PRs. I was already a World Champion with 20 world records and still am. Just didn't feel any need to risk more unnecessary foolish injuries. I'm 82 and all joints and muscle connections in excellent working order. How you doing still in your early 50s?

I'm going to go in tonight and hit a squat PR, take the dog for a run, and then enjoy some prime Washington Grown Indica while you slowly die in menthol squalor and faded dreams of a life of fauxcomplishments and lost opportunity.
