FML - The follow-up

Today, my parents grounded me for being "addicted" to drugs because I've been taking pain meds every four hours. I had my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday, and my face is badly swollen. FML

This is the OP here, my parents are incredibly worried about me taking the medicine because two of my three brothers are recovering drug addicts. I was visiting a friend who called my brother to come pick me up because I kept falling asleep mid-conversation as a side-effect to the medication. My parents assumed I was abusing them because of their past experiences with my brothers. They're incredibly understanding about the pain, but they're just scared.

What's with FMLs with such stupid ass parents lately? On a side note, your parents are assholes, OP. They should know your condition. You're obviously taking them for a good purpose in a non-addictive way.

I was 17 when I had mine taken out. I had to be sedated because all four were coming out. Luckily I didn't need the pain meds (back in the 1980s it was Tylenol with codeine). But the recovery was not fun. And it takes a few days to get over it.

I'm 19 and my dentist looked at my xrays and said I should get mine out pretty soon. I was planning on waiting until they poked through my gums because I know that would hurt a bit less and would be easier to remove but he said they don't have roots so they won't poke through.

I'm 19 and mine haven't even come through yet. My dad was 25, my mum was early 20s, my boyfriend is 24 and he hasn't had them come through yet. None of my friends have either yet. Sorry for going from mine, and my friends and family's personal experiences.

It definitely depends. My wisdom teeth never broke through the skin, but I had to have them removed when I was about 19 because if I did let them grow in they would push all of my other teeth in and they would all get extremely crooked. But I have some friends who never had to have theirs removed. Yet, anyway.

It's more common to have them Pulled earlier on. Into middle-late teens it's generally a good idea to have them pulled. Mine were coming through and had them pulled at 16. Impaction is a common occurrence even if they aren't surfacing...

Yeah I agree. There are a lot of parents making horrible decisions on here when it comes to their kids. In this case, your parents are just dumb. Do they expect you to suffer and just deal with the pain?

Seriously? Aren't they concerned with how you feel? If you're taking them as directed there shouldn't be a problem. I hope you feel better OP. Don't let your parents bring you down.

A lot of parents freak out over anything drug related, even when it's doctor approved. My friend's mother threw out her prescribed meds and only let her use Advil. The amount of Advil she had to take to deal with the pain was far more risky than the slight threat of addiction posed by her prescribed meds.

I was diagnosed with a.d.d. at a young age. My mom wouldn't pick up the medicine at a pharmacy because she heard bad thing about adderall. Instead i had to struggle thru school and get yelled at regularly about my grades. So yeah parents can be retards.
