William The Coroner’s Forensic Files

Congratulations!

to my friend _h, who to a reasonable degree of medical certainty (and an a affidavit from a pain management doc) is officially NOT addicted to prescription pain medication.*

I could have told you that.  Addicts don’t break their pills in half to take a half-dose, nor do they defer taking their meds until they don’t have to drive.  And complaining about how pills make one “tipsy” is not usually addict behaviour.  But what do I know, I’m just a coroner who doesn’t prescribe.

*This reminded me strongly of corporal Cecil Wormsborough St. John Nobbs of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, and it just tickled me.

  1. I’m the same way with my Lorcet pills. Every time I convince a doctor I’m not a user or dealer, he or she leaves the practice and I have to start all over again. Now my latest new doctor wants me to give them up and go to pain management classes or some such. I’ve tried P.T., pain management, and just living with the pain to no avail. I hope it doesn’t take too long to convince this one. I’m tired of it.
