So much has happened since February and at one time felt like a never ending end. One thing I can say is that it has for sure been one heck of a journey that I can add to the books. Since October, my medical condition has had its highs and lows but I am very happy to say that I am happy, I feel good and excited—for all the things that are happening around me.
Now as a Lupie, I always talk about how I received my M.D. Degree from the University of Experiences with a specialization in pharmaceuticals (don't judge me). So with pain medications, I am all too familiar. I have been on all types of pain medications from Dilaudid or Fentanyl, to Morphine or Percocet, just to name a few. However, I do believe that it is crucially important to understand that yes, pain medications are for pain, but they, like all other medications, have side effects too—which is something even I, sometimes, just don't think about.
