Even Oxygen has it's draw backs with long term use,
Prednisone certianly poses some very dire health risks, and as for verapamil,well it's not an abortive,it's a maintainence med in the clinical sense, what I'm talking about is the mindset that you must take "Pain Meds" to abort attacks, you know Vicodin(hydrocodone),Percoset(Oxycodone) Demerol,Darvoset(propoxyphene) while you still partake in triggering activities, Your own mind has the power to deal with enormous amounts of stresses(pain, tension,anxiety,depression) however as long as you don't recognize this and continue to run to the drug store to try to abort the pain syndrome you just set yourself up for the next action in a never ending chain of action reaction. On the other hand your own mind can make you have attack after attack just to get the next dose of pain med. It can make you believe your having a heart attack,stroke and pull you into a never ending spiral of depression and hopelessness if you don't recognize what your doing and correct it!
I'm a real jerk in my approach sometimes but it gets the attention of those that want to hear the real message. If Oxygen worked I would probibley use it but the rest I've done and Ice and "self control" have been my salvation for over 10 years now!
I just don't get the drinking and smoking and taking any type of drug you can get your hands on and then complaining that you spend a lot
of time Dancing with the Devil? Seems to be a lot of justifing of bad habits and bad behaviors, that's all. Sailpappy
P.S. I'll be going back on the Chemotherapy for the next 6 months in the hope's of surviving, I won't be posting much as I'm getting so weak from this Advanced Hepatitis C that I can barely type out these short notes with out extreme fatigue and severe pain. I will read and I hope all find there salvation through dilagent searching and sharing on the Boards
