Can I die of an overdose if it is helping me take my pain away or is it if you take a ton of meds... going through ptsd and it helps me and doc thinks I am a drug seeker. I dont understand. why do they make drugs that work and when you need them and ask they treat you like crap and those who use them to get high get them and get away with it. I am anxious, depressed, in pain and need help. How do I talk to a doctor and ask for help without it looking like I am a medicine cabinet. I dont have insurance and I need to get well. I am not a drug seeker, Dilaudid worked perfectly and my dr wont give it to me. Why??? I dont understand. When we need it to feel better they deny us.
