Grow poppies. I cant recommend enough the book Opium for the Masses--Growing and Harvesting nature's best pain medicine , by Jim HogshireIs there anyone here who has pain that is unrelenting and can get no help for it? I understand docs are at the mercy of the government, but personally, I am suffering! I see no help coming soon, and am scared for the many years ahead of living with no relief!
Yeah, it was.That's quite a high dose.
Aleve is Naproxen, an NSAID, specific for chronic pain, and pretty long lasting.Is aleve an nsaid?
Def not saying it was too high... I believe you needed it. When I was in the hospital I was on something like that... about that much daily oxycodone but then iv dilaudid pushes as needed, and lots of muscle relaxants. They said I was on as high a dose of pain meds as they could do , and there was no such thing as a higher dose ... when I had bad pain episodes even on that dose they said that. Hence why I was like wow... at that dose. Bc they told me literally it was as high as they could go --not that I necessarily believe that as a concept. I'm sure if my oxygen was okay they could give me a higher dose idk. But at that point your tolerance starts just going up up up. When I was first in the hospital the iv dilaudid pushes obliterated my pain. After weeks , they only brought it down a tiny bit.
Yeah, it was.
I was teetering on the edge after 2-plus years of lugging around an undiagnosed cancer to 5 different Drs, for 6 different wrong diagnoses. By the time an ER PA diagnosed me, I was in seriously bad shape, and in indescribable pain.
Processing is the easy part , compared to growing , I believe. Having done both, and also read about it.
Growing them is the easy part, depending on which climate zone you live in.
Lemme know how the actual processing of the opium gum goes, yes?
They are cranky little blooms. And harvesting the raw sap, while simple, leaves the problem of learning the proper dosage without depressing your respiratory system to the point of OD'g.At this point I would say growing enough of them is still the hard part.
Ha. Well in this case I really think they did push pretty high. I could've had worse treatment. I just happened to have a more painful than average recovery to a more painful than average (fusion ) surgery. It taught me a new pain scale. What I assumed they meant by couldn't go higher is that they'd start worrying about me not breathing if we went higher z especially combined with the muscle relaxants I was on and stuff.
And it's all in our heads.
They'd never lie, right?
