Great Porn Dragon: Doctors are REALLY loathe to prescribe ANY narcotics now because it's a very good way to get flagged as a "pill mill" and get the office shut down by the state.

As someone who has struggled with chronic pain for years, I can tell you it's not just doctors in KY who refuse to prescribe adequate pain meds & leave people to self-medicate. IMHO, western medicine in general does its best work when dealing with acute cases/emergency surgery, but fails miserably when dealing with chronic illness; it concentrates too much on chasing down symptoms & does not address root causes. Still, I always get excited when reading studies like the one in TFA; anything that sheds more light on how pain works & how we can control it is a good thing in my book.

Also, I'm enjoying reading your posts; sounds like you know your stuff (and I had no idea about the lizard spit thing...)

Do not let the black mamba bite you as an attempt to get high. It will kill you.

Yet it's nowhere near as effective as being stung in the face by a scorpion while trapped under a Bebop Cola machine.

But I like Morphine. Sandman was a friend of mine and I went to school with Dana. Please don't let them be forgotten because of a renewed interest in a '50s dance fad.
