Hi all, I have chronic back and side pain and have been on pain killers for three years now. I try to stop taking them because I really don't like being on them but the pain is too bad to endure w/o them. I feel like I'm an addict sometimes but my wife keeps assuring me that the doctors have me on them so it isn't wrong. It is very frustrating, so I was wondering if anyone else is in this situation and how do you handle it? Thanks and God bless.
