I was in 17 until this past January. Finally started working with a doctor who was more interested in my well-being than his paycheck. He worked with me extensively to cut my meds down to 8. I’ve haven’t felt this good in years!

I’m so sorry! I understand... I spent 2 years treating and finished just a month ago. All day on pills and injections. All of them with terrible side effects and I had many of them... Started fainting, disorientation. Sometimes because of the amount of medications, my organism couldn’t accept them. It was a nightmare! Later all of my bones, even fingers started to ache. I needed help to get up or walk, and I couldn’t even pour myself a glass of water, because of the weight of the pitcher. And I’m 23. I really hope, that you’ll get well soon. I know it’s hard, but you can do this! Be patient and everything is gonna be alright. I have no idea what you have, but I hope you will feel better soon, no matter what you are treating. God Bless! And I’m sorry for my English, it’s not my native language. I just needed to tell you, that you can do this! You’ll get through this! Stay strong and patient!

Feel your pain. My stuff started in my early 20’s with a heart attack at 36. I’m sick due to my father’s exposure to Agent Orange. Due to the med combo I was on, I was at extremely high risk for accidental overdose, which made me too afraid to use pain management and some other as needed stuff. I was finally able to switch to MMJ and have come off so many. Still on a lot, but the dangerous ones are gone.

I wish you relief from whatever is going on.

That sucks. Can you share why you’re on so many medications? I take a shit ton of pain killers for chronic back pain and I’m 33. I feel like I’m in my 80’s.

Sucks you’re on so many meds. Can you share why you’re on so many meds? If not no worries. I take a ton of pain killers for chronic pain and I’m only 33 and I feel like I’m in my 80’s.

I have bipolar and borderline personality disorder as well as underactive thyroid, IBS (ew I know), restless legs and knee pain. I may also have fibromyalgia (waiting to see the specialist) so may end up on more.

I know I'm super lucky to have access to all of these medications. Can't even begin to imagine what my mental and physical health would be without them.

Wait, you're from a civilized country that cares about its citizens and protects them from paying exorbitant drug prices?

That's a real boner-killer for the Big Pharma execs.

It’s called validation. Sometimes when you are in a sucky situation, it’s nice to know you are not alone. And others sharing their experiences can help validate what you are feeling. Go figure, even on a site for giggles, people can still show compassion.
