Chronic Pain Sufferers Overlooked in the Opioid Crisis

0

Opioids have proven very useful for treatment of acute pain and are increasingly used for chronic pain patients. During the last 25 years, opioids have been a first choice prescription plan for chronic pain conditions of all kinds, for people of all ages and backgrounds. It hasn’t been until the last decade that doctors and specialists have recognized the correlation between opioid abuse and chronic pain sufferers. In the late nineties and even early 2000’s, it was stereotyped that those who struggled with drug addiction were not patients that were given these medications by a doctor, but “less than” members […]

Dr. Seuss, also known as Theodor Geisel, was a children’s author who often wrote in rhyming couplets to convey his message. In a story named ‘The Lorax’ he writes about a character that annals the predicament of the environment in a manner that “speaks for the trees”. In a poetic rhythm confronting the Once-ler, the Lorax elaborates upon the environmental degradation of the planet and how change is obligatory for their future. In doing so, the Lorax stressly explains “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better-it’s not”. Now these are absolutely wise […]

Life is such a mystery with so many purportedly unanswered questions. Some of those mysteries may always remain despite the amount of research underwent. Take for instance, why did Lee Harvey Oswald ever shoot JFK? We may never understand that one. Or why do people eat Applejacks if they don’t taste like apples? Or was Atlantis ever real or only fable? But the real Sherlock Holmes of a mystery that remains on everybody’s mind has to do with the opioid epidemic.      For those that aren’t aware (which seems impossible at this point in 2019), there is an opioid epidemic […]

Andre 3000, a snazzy dresser with a funky vibe, once sang “Ain’t nobody dope as me, I’m just so fresh and so fresh and so clean”. He was talking of course about his style and attire. Generally most people in our world follow some sort of fashionable trend or another at some or another. Some individuals like to trend hop as they discover a diverse world of fashion mimicking celebrities, friends, and whatever happens to be “in” at the time. Others might have a particular style they stick with; a timeless look chosen to represent them exactly. Then there are […]

The Importance of Family in Recovery

0

“Blood is thicker than water” is an ancient English proverb that means familial bonds will always be stronger than the bonds of friendship or other loves. This being said, the family dynamic is a forced relationship that none of us ever chose. For some this involuntary link is an extraordinarily beautiful thing that fabricates joy in all of it’s corners, and for others it is a dark cloud that glooms over their existential ambitions. Possibly harsh words, but for those individuals maybe bitter apple really doesn’t fall far from its  family tree of origin. Maybe there’s so much likeness that […]

Looking Into an Alcohol Detox

“Looking into alcohol an detox”, a simple five worded sentence that has the power to evoke fear, anxiety, and/or guilt out of the bravest, unconcerned, and/or most shameless of beings. Any dismal emotion felt for that matter is typically because alcoholic thinking has gotten that person to the point of needing alcohol detox, that or somebody close to them is in desperate need. Or in some cases maybe it was something they’ve been through already and the memories remain intact and unpleasant. Either way, it something that most inflicted with alcoholic thinking have to endure at some point in their […]

We are not authors but merely editors in the thick book we choose to call life. As it opens up and unravels it’s series of uncertainty, so much positive and negative experience envelops chapter after chapter. Attempting to guide our souls through the articulation of experiences depends highly on our interaction with the external forces turning each page. As we begin to understand this, it gives segue to the mental gymnastics of why we is, why we are, and why we be. I mean, is that not the deepest of educated experiences one can truly desire in the end? To […]

“Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance”, William Clement Stone penned in one of his arguably famous self help books. In relay of this sentiment, the truth is reality. Yet the question that remains is if our actuality is ever parallel to reality? Think about it, it’s really more than uncommon nonsense. For many, perspective is quick to bolster opinion while shoving facts/truth into the shadows of unknowingness.        In most cases we are quick to see/hear the things we want to. We all process things in our own way, often times struggling to […]

Human beings are complex, fascinating organisms. Basic human nature shows us that we are creatures of survival. We adapt to the times as the times are a changin, like Bobby Z sang. Yet like it or not, the world continues to spin at its own pace regardless of our adaption to it. To survive we have to learn defense and offense. We have to offend and defend. We must know the difference between fight and flight as we pick our battles throughout life wisely.    That all being said, what do we do when you can’t run and you can’t […]
