My pain Doctor has me on 75 mic. of Fentanyl. It's a heavy narcotic that is absorbed from a patch through the skin into the blood stream. I have a neurological disease (Dystonia) that affects my muscles, causing disabling pain and abnormal posturing. How can I help my child to understand the concept of Doctor induced addiction and mental addiction? Have you had to explain? I'm addicted physically to Fentanyl, i go through withdrawls like what a junky goes through without thier heroin, coke, oxy, ect. Its torture.
I dont want to be addicted to fentanyl. I want my system clean, I want my kids to see that i can function without meds, that im not the junky image they see in the media ...my guilt is emense, i am useless without narcotics.
I want feed back, that is why I asked the question however i feel like the CM community is thoughtful enough not to answer without a small understanding of this topic.and no I cant just stop.
