Just a "me too!" to Shelli. I share your frustration with constantly being put on the defensive about the medication I take, medication which was legitimately prescribed in consultation with a true expert. I think it is only to be expected that one would be resentful of being treated like a liar by well-meaning but self-righteous people who appear to think they know what's best for others and who ignore the clearly-stated details of one's situation.

Indeed. The anti-opiate movement on this board seems to share many of the qualities of a fundamentalist religious crusade!

Thanks for saying it, all of it. To me, this quality of support represents the best that this board has to offer (because even though you're speaking for yourself, I know you're aware that others of us have been subject to the same offensive and ignorant accusations and generalisations as you have).

best,
