1. Prednisone has kept me alive and out of a wheelchair

for over 20 years. Ultram makes sure I can function by making the pain manageable.

You bet I'm grateful to the moneygrubbing bastards.

2. Hell's yes. I'm tired of the people telling me to take herbs and shit

I've got real problems (diseases), not an issue falling asleep from time to time, that can be fixed by taking by taking damn Valerian root.

I just took another dose of Methotrexate to go along with my Plaquenil, Prednisone.......

I love my poisons er I mean drugs. They keep me feeling ok

3. Me too

I don't know what I'd do without my Gabapentin and Ultram and a few more. This pain from Guillain-Barre sucks!

5. And I love my insulin!

My Levemir and Novolog keep my blood sugar down and my twins from having issues from high blood sugar while I'm pregnant. So tired of people telling me that cinnamon (or chromium) will cure all my ills and if I just took care of myself and "ate low carb (while pregnant!!!)", I wouldn't have Diabetes anymore.

I have "generalized" issues with "big pharm", but I also realize they do some good things!

Just thought I'd chime in and say "hear, hear!".

6. If eating uncontrolled pseudo drugs such as cinnamon solved

every problem with insulin control, there wouldn't be such a thing as diabetes! I'm all in favor of eating things such as garlic and cinnamon that help generally healthy people stay healthy, but sometimes you need the big guns!

I use fish oil supplements (on doctor's advice) to help my dry skin and dry eyes, but I depend on my chloroquine to keep me fully functional!
