NO WAY are you a whimp! I'm a 235 pound guy and I'm on a HUGE does of Methadone for the pain for about 7 years now.

there's no whimps here - if you can't get out of bed because of the pain... or stand up straight due to pain... or go out to the grocery store or even buy a pair of sox due to pain...

but with your dosage of Percocet you CAN! THAT's the friggin point here! No one can possibly know the depth of anothers pain. or the deal about Others Dealing Better with pain - well I don't know. To me it's simple: If taking pain medication - at the dosage your taking - if that IMPROVES your life on a daily basis.. or for some even gives them BACK THEIR LIFE!

Then what's whimpy about that?!

Giving up completely and calling it all a day, now that's a whimp in my book. sticking it out anyway you need too? - that's living your life under the circumstances. and there's clearly no shame in that. - Jack
