Opioids?
« on: November 06, 2017, 10:54:48 PM »
Local weather station television ads, Twitter & internet news are crawling with Opioid chatter. Does anyone actually care that folks are offing themselves with this stuff? It seems to me like more 'evolution in action' nonsense or the latest trendy way to ride the cutting edge of dangerous behavior...

...or am I insensitive to the people-groups that overdose on this category of drug?

Folks O.D.ing on prescription pain medication (& also some heroin) - and/or attempting to get their doctors to prescribe more after they've become hooked.

All I can say is I'm SOOO blessed. When Nick had his car wreck and in serious pain, he was pushing the morphine button as much as it would let him (timed).

But he's past that with no ill effects. He still doesn't do drugs except for his blood pressure medicine and the occasional beer.

I thank the Lord daily.

Amen, Alan - praise God!

Good for him.  That's one of my Big Fears.  Chronic pain that could only be relieved by the nasty stuff.
