    I am a mother of 4 children, boys ages 17 and 14, twin daughters that are about to turn 4.  I am also a military wife and my husband is about to deploy for his third time to Afghanistan.  I have severe chronic back pain and was referred to a pain mgt. doctor.  Since Feb. of this year my dr gives me 120 percocet 5-325 a month.  I am only supposed to take 4a day, but now I am totally abusing them.  I take 12 a day (the max safely).  I run out in a week and half.  I am tired of living like this and tired of going through horrible painful withdrawals every month.  Not to mention all the depression and obsession on how to get more percs.  I am currently out of percocet and I am wanting to stay that way.  I have never done anything illegal to obtain them, nor will I ever.  I am just tired of living this way and seriously would rather die sometimes.  Can someone please help!

    Sorry to hear that you are in pain and have this stress. I totally understand where you are coming from and I promise that you can kick them. I stopped a 2 year oxycontin problem-- it was very hard and I have days where that is all that I want, but it is doable. Try and see a doctor about starting suboxone so that you can wean yourself off.

    I'm worried that my doctor will judge me and put a label on me
