So with this bulging disc my doctor put me on Norco 10/325 which is really really strong vicodin. My back hurts all the time, the shit doesn't touch it and I've told my doc this for months.
Well I'm a recovering addict and THOUGHT I could handle this. I have been taking too many. The first time I ran out I ended up in ER puking and shaking. The times before that, I had the sense to wean myself.
Now I'm scared.....I work at a crisis center that deals with addicts, if they found out.....I would most certainly lose my job.
Not to mention what I am doing is very dangerous.
I'm just feeling serious shame right now.
*edit to add* I'm a recovering alcoholic, I have almost 5 years and this is such a set back for me.
I haven't told anyone because I know what will be said, they just don't get it.
