This drug is not a narcotic per se, but it does
yield a high just as good as morphine
. I am back down to three pills per day now to manage my pain. I wish I didn't have to take drugs, but without some painkiller, I am in a bad shape.
And as you said J. R., finding and having a higher power, God and/or AA or NA will really change your life and your whole outlook on the world. I am so grateful for this; feeling like a "human" again, and having my life back.
