Since January 1, 2016, 1,586 Albertans have died from an overdose related to fentanyl.
My personal adventures would begin in 1985 and will be chronicled in the--
LSD ex. Flashback to 1985 - 2010 Opiate Decades which were "NOT" an issue as it was okay to over prescribe and in the late 80s there was still no "triplicate" prescription pads (they were a big deal) and were going to prevent abuses
But like other ''big deals they seldom work out''
My journey began one March 15, 1985 day when I ventured as a whole person off to work (ya I once worked) [for a paycheck]
I was injured and was given Tylenol 3 (lots) and sent home, this is what we did and still do as we have NO / ZERO alternatives to control pain it is Opiates or Ibuprofen (Advil etc) NSAID'S
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are a drug class that reduce pain, decrease fever, prevent blood clots and, in higher doses, decrease inflammation. Side effects depend on the specific drug, but largely include an increased risk of gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeds, heart attack and kidney disease
we as a society just DO NOT have much in 1,000's of years of history to control pain -- We Just don't
Within a few months of my pain (low back) not responding well to "bed rest" (we didn't know then what we know now) the game was increased to
Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) is a combination drug consisting of an opioid and a pain reliever and fever reducer (analgesic and antipyretic) used for the management of moderate to severe pain, usually for an extended time period. Percocet is available in generic form.
And from a few a week to 100 a week by 1987 as I still was now experiencing depression as well as likely addiction issues
I didn't sign up for this class girls and boys, as it was somewhat dumped on me.
And now for some "strange and bewildering" to the *System Lords and Myself" I was suicidal (like I said I didn't sign up for this class)
But [[they]] yah you knew who I was long before "I was before I was" as [[they]] knew I was a Key' Lo to change and the disruption of the
Status Quo (There Is No Status Quo, Your Either Winning or Your Losing) There ain't no in between no more (They) know this but do not wish YOU to know:
But back to Key' Lo's Adventures in (Opiate and now Mental Medication Land) You all knew that Mental Medications DO NOT mix with Opiates as the result is Suicide Behavior (well you as nurses, doctors, druggists) should have sent red flags up
But remember [ The White Picket Fence ] well that is where the three groups mentioned above (Nurses, Doctors, and Druggists) live
And they will sacrifice a client to protect a paycheck (they knew) and [[they]] failed me, and as a result the very system they got into to protect:
I got wrung through the washer and it would take me 25 years 2.5 decades henceforth the Opiate Decades (O.D.)
I needed to go through Oxycontin
Oxycodone, sold under brand name OxyContin among others, is an opioid medication used for treatment of moderate to severe pain. It is usually taken by mouth, and is available in immediate release and controlled release formulations
What is difference between Percocet and OxyContin?
Percocet contains five milligrams of oxycodone, which is all released when the pill is taken. Percocet also contains acetaminophen (the drug in Tylenol), which makes people sick if they take a lot of it. OxyContin doesn't contain acetaminophen. It is pure oxycodone in amounts much larger than in Percocet.
I was on 80mg a day
And then Methadone
Methadone, sold under the brand name Dolophine among others, is an opioid used for opioid maintenance therapy in opioid dependence and for chronic pain management. Detoxification using methadone can either be done relatively rapidly in less than a month or gradually over as long as six months --
It was to be a life sentence for me and [[they]] knew it
No one got me "clean" and it was with Prayer, and Jesus (and I swear I didn't ask as I didn't have the relationship I do now with this gentleman)
it took 207 days to get "clean"
But the System Lords [[they]] all of you were not done with me yet "WERE YOU" as I still needed to be pushed "a lot harder as we still had one remaining element left to get me clean & SOBER"
But I was Opiate Clean after 25 years and Proud then this wound (the HOLY HOLE) would take even this from me as I was clean for 8 years, 1 month, and 25 days and I lost it and I am so damn weak I still need the Codeine daily now [[they]] say "It is OK but they don't live in my heart and soul" knowing my history map
Maybe this log posting helps them as I hurt and we have no options (SCREWED) I AM
But do I deserve to be treated this way as "let me suffer benefits who?"
I wonder if you are happy knowing what you are doing unto me,'
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH MY SUFFERING?
