She stated she was someone that didn't go to college and barely got a high school education and suddenly after a couple tweets she was asked to be a commentator.

It is reminiscent of Sean Hannity and the rich don't care as long as it is someone the stupid will listen to.

How the fark do you take 20 v a day without getting sick from the acetaminophen (tylenol)??

Asking for a friend

I mean... that sucks, I hope she manages to ditch the political movement she affiliates with long enough to actually seek effective treatment.  Gonna be extra hard since her community right now heavily favors the religious "treatments" like NA that have a lower success rate than cold turkey and rely on fake support groups designed to brainwash you into unrelated cult bullshiat instead of actually helping.  That shiat's... kind of a minefield, and she has my sympathy as someone who's been through that farking minefield and was short a few metaphorical fingers and toes from the goddamned fundies sabotaging shiat for a while.

Like... she has money, and I presume a manager, maybe they'll shove her in the direction of actual treatment before her people drag her off in the bad direction and kill her with a relapse overdose in a few years?

That said, no, you can't blame her being an idiot, either in general or in public specifically, on the drugs.  That's just her.

Trail of BABYMETAL DEATH: How the fark do you take 20 v a day without getting sick from the acetaminophen (tylenol)??


I almost ended up in the same boat. You build up a tolerance. I figured it out and stopped when I caught myself about to take 5 Vicodin pills at once because 4 at a time were no longer helping with my pain. The RX called for one pill every 4-6 hours as needed.

So I stopped. I try not to take them at all now, even when in agony, lest I start down the path again. I'm in pain every moment of every day, but I'd rather deal with the pain than lose my mind.

I always heard the tylenol in V will fark you up before the opioid does. Didn't know you could build up tolerance to that.

Sorry to hear you are in constant pain, that must suck. Without opioids.. what are your options?

Dash said her parents were both addicts, her dad to heroin.

Substance abuse is far from my area of expertise, but this to me is one of the biggest flags.  Lots of people can take opioids as directed for any length of time without becoming addicted and/or needing higher and higher doses.  But there are some people who probably have a genetic predisposition to certain substances, which provides the path to misuse/abuse/addiction.

I've taken percoset and tramadol at different points over the past 10 years or so.  Once was a six month stretch when I had a shoulder fracture and an almost completely torn ACL.  I forget the tramadol dosage but the percoset was around 30mg a day in the first few weeks.  The rest of the time was for gout (usually 20mg a day max, for 2-4 days at a time).  The pills never brought me enjoyment, in and of themselves.  What I enjoyed, for however long it lasted, was the lessening of severe pain.  When I'm at a tolerable pain level, it never occurs to me to take oxy for "fun," probably because it's not an enjoyable feeling.  Aside from pain relief, oxy just makes me itchy.  I don't think there's anything special about me, I just think I lack whatever genetic misfortune would give me a high from opioids.

My pet theory is there's some kind of neurochemical parallel between my lack of enjoyment of oxy and my moderate, depression-related anhedonia.  Perhaps oxy is more likely to bring people elation if they're already able to experience happiness in a sustained way (or at all).

Trail of BABYMETAL DEATH: How the fark do you take 20 v a day without getting sick from the acetaminophen (tylenol)??


That was my thought. That works out to 15000 mg of acetaminophen/ day. That's enough to start measuring in grams. 5 GRAMS/ day. Assuming she actually took Vicodin or the off-brand equivalent.

I'd not say elation, I'd say relief.  If you're under a lot of stress and anxious 24/7, opiates can give you that mellow "I feel like normal people probably do most days" feeling.  You're sleepy, but you no longer have the exhausting constant worry.

Then after a few hours, it comes back.  And you know there's something you can do to alleviate it now.  And it's in that prescription bottle, and you just need to take another one of those and you feel like you're normal again.  Especially since it's for pain, you feel less pain and less anxious, and more normal.

And then you keep taking them until you feel no pain, and no anxiety, and no heart rate, and no blood pressure.  Perfect serenity.

So don't do that.

In my, umm, extensive experience in this area most non-psychiatric chemistry just amplifies certain parts of your personality. It doesn't create new ones.

Only outlier I have found is Ambien. That crap is weird and a bad idea. Not like, "cocaine is fun, but generally a bad idea to use more than a couple times a month". Bad like, "It might help you sleep or...you might go on a $10000 online porn/ gambling streak tonight and have no idea until the bill arrives".

Kinda. If you take a bunch of opioids with no built up resistance, the opioid portion can kill you pretty fast. If you build up a tolerance to that, the Acetaminophen will kill you later.

This. I ate two on top of alcohol one night, and woke up to my wife screaming at me. Everything in the refrigerator and freezer (which we're both wide open) was out on the counter. All the cabinets were open, pots and pans on the stove, and the oven was on. Also, the back door was wide open and the patio furniture had been rearranged. I have no memory of this. Never again.

That much acetaminophen would kill your liver. You'd be dumping magnesium through your kidneys, and that's very painful by itself. Takes only 5-6 regular-strength Vicodin (5mg oxycodone/300mg acetaminophen) in one day for that to happen, and if you took more Vicodin for the kidney pain, you'd end up with liver failure even faster.

"Acetaminophen has been associated with cases of acute liver failure, at times resulting in liver transplant and death, most often with the use of acetaminophen at doses that exceed 4000 mg/day".

If she was taking 18-20, she'd be dead. You don't build a tolerance for acetaminophen.

Take them, and be honest with your doctor.  Hang a sign on your bathroom mirror, "Am I addicted?" and if you can't answer that, tell the doc.  A legit addiction can be treated fairly easily, if you genuinely don't want to be in that place.  And especially if you catch it early.

I've had a non-standard opiate addiction and had to treat myself because my symptoms were not textbook and multiple doctors didn't believe me.  If you google the symptoms and cures, worst case you can do it yourself.

Trust your doctor, talk to your doctor, and there are honest sources for information on the internet.  Spend a week looking for one you can trust, and make a decision from there.  If you're comfortable from there, take the dive.

I've had an "if you had that much you'd be dead" reading in a hospital setting.  Not necessarily for tylenol.  I'm very much alive.  I'm not some AI.  I probably should be dead, but to everyone's chagrin I'm not.  Yet.

My dad was a doctor and I used to steal from him as a kid...I really like opiates but have stayed away from them since I really understood what addiction meant, and the fear of being addicted to something like that really farks with me.   My radiologist? and I talked about it.  He was straight, 'you know if you are taking them righteously or not' and I agree, but I don't know how this is going to end up, and pain sucks.  Right now I have Tramadol and I've taken 50mg once for a headache, which it didn't help but i also didn't get high, which is good. It would suck to live through this ending up with a monkey on my back though.  I don't know what the fark to do.

Stories like this aren't what keep me from opiods. Valuing the power of a good sh*t does. My experience with opiods spans several surgeries, and I refuse them at the earliest opportunity. They do have their place and time, but long term, they haven't been needed.

No, Subby. The crazy stuff happened the past couple of years. In the article she said she has been sober for the past 5 years.

She is trying to blame abuse and drugs for her behavior, but the truth is with her family background and her looks, she never had a chance in life. She was taught the wrong things early in life, she's seen too much too soon. She was born a target, she knows it and as long as she stays seeking attention like being on Dr Oz, nothing will change in her life.

She should write a book, go on a promotional tour, and then retire.

It's worth talking to a pain specialist if you haven't already. There are non-opiate pharmaceutical options that can be very helpful, and there are also technological options like TENS units.

Pain is horrible on its own. I use cannabinoids because opiates really don't work for me, make me feel bad and really hit me with gut problems -- fark opiate nausea.

Even reduced pain is worth it, in my experience.
