I have suffered from chronic pain in my neck and shoulder after four nerves in my neck and shoulder area were permanently damaged. Immediately after I was diagnosed with nerve damage I was put on narcotic pain killers to dull my pain and I have become addicted to percocet. I have decided to check myself into rehab, but for insurance purposes I must get a referral from my doctor, and I am SO scared to admit to my abuse of the medication he has been prescribing me... Can anyone recommend how to go about breaking the news to him, or just words of encouragement for a very terrified young adult that is about to enter rehab? Any help would be much appreciated
