Hi all, Hope 2016 has started ok for you all. Well I have made a huge decision and that is after 9 years of being on very strong pain relief that does't seem to touch my pain I am coming off all my meds. I went to see the Doctor yesterday and he was with me on my reasoning. I was thinking of this last year but kept putting it off cos of ?? not sure apart from my Head was not in the right place and now it feels like it is. Late last year their was a Panarama programe which was about being ' hooked on painkillers and chronic pain' they had people on that had come off there meds and there pain was no different, I don't know what is helping my pain if anything ?? Plus as you know the side effects from all the strong meds are horrible and vile. I don't really know what the next few months will hold, I am going to do this slowly so as to reduce the withrawal of reducing my meds. I am terrified but until I do this I won't know what is going to help me if anything..the one thing i am looking forward too is a clear head and No side effects from the drugs........So I start this today..... I will give updates as and when I can. Thank you for taking the time to read this xx
