Addiction and Pain-killers

Does anyone else hesitate to take their narcotic medication because they worry about addiction?  I was recently prescribed a narcotic for the first time because my pain has been progressively getting worse, and would not respond to what I usually take. But I've heard all sorts of horror stories about people (not necessarily Sickle-cell warriors) being addicted to their medication and it has scared me somewhat. So what are your thoughts or experiences?See More

"I know it must be a challenge as I get older, now 62. I try to eat lots of fruit in the morning to give me a boost. Fruit, juice, and water.  Plus, have an agenda you can subscribe to."

Medical Professionals with Sickle Cell?

Hi Friends,Just wondering if any folks on here are nurses, nurse practitioner, PAs, doctors etc and have sickle cell. A friend of my who has ss is pursuing a career in medicine. I think it's great, nurses have a special place in my heart. In addition to applauding you all wanted to hear your experiences. Do you have patients with ss etc?See More
