Ma, one thing I have learned through my chronic pain workshop and through trying to wein of pain medications is that taking something once in awhile to give you some relief is not a bad thing. You need to weigh the effects of the medication with the amount of suffering you have with it. I definitely know the feelings of not wanting to give into drugs, but getting some relief rather than getting stressed over pain aids in the healing process.
Sending you love and gentle hugs, from your Canadian daughter!
