Does anyone else have issue with their familes constantly suggesting they should come off meds?
I understand the concerns, when my family members tell me it's not good taking all these meds with side effects and the possible consequences later on.
I try to tell them I barely get by with the meds, & I couldn't possibly function without them, as that would mean no immediate pain relief when pain is horrid, and no sleep at all when I desperately need it, even if it's just a couple hours. It might sound silly but I tell them I'm willing to take the meds if they can help me to get some quality of life. They don't seem to understand.
Does anyone else understand?
