So, I'm on a prescription for infection and they gave me hydrocodone for the pain. The prescription makes my chest burn and feel a little tight- it's clindamycin and I don't like these side effects =/ The hydrocodane however I could get used to...haha. It's a narcotic and I literally felt like a feather last night and apparently I was smiling and laughing a lot- that's always pleasant. I was not aware that they would give me such a strong pain killer this early on before the surgery. I guess my pain being rated on a scale of 1-10 is about a 9 or 10, so the hydrocodone definitely helps! I have never been high before, but I imagine it feels a little like that- I just felt really light and funny, kind of like a euphoria. There was of course no pain last night- I felt fantastic! I didn't wake up in pain either which is unusual seeing that I have been for the last several weeks routinely.
So, yeah. Drugs are great when used to relieve pain. Other than that I keep my distance and I will continue to do so once I get through all of this- until then, they shall be my dear friends :)
