Doctor - patient communication... Empty Doctor - patient communication...

Many patients and doctors wanted to have more discussion about the patient’s satisfaction with prescription medications.

"Satisfaction" with Rx medications? Oh please. At times, I had to wrestle mine.
At times I was denied the basic I needed most and went home hysterically sobbing.

My present dr-patient communication doesn't totally suck, but
I am afraid to tell so many things because I believe if I peep a word about some health issues I have
she will withdraw the pain care I so desperately need.

I think it all comes to us being always, but always suspected of being addicted to our pain meds, period.

So if I need any adjustment - forget it!
I won't come forward because I am deathly afraid I will lose a tiny bit of what I have now.
Even if I am aware it may cost me my health in the long run.


I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

It's only been recently that I have developed enough trust in my neuro to be completely honest. With my old neuro I made the comment that the same amount of vicoden I had been on for five years was no longer effective and I was missing up to a week of work a month.

His comment "oh, we better take you off that". But nothing elese worked!!!!!! So I never spoke to him again about it. It was really a small amount too.

The new neuro understands and I'm grateful.
