I've been reading the Personality section of the MiB's page and strikes me that it's good writing but contains quite a bit of opinion. I got 1/2 way through editing when it occurred to me it could be the basis of an OpEd piece or a Blog article.
What do you think?
Would you be interested in writing a "What Turned William Into The Man in Black?" analysis?
Codeine is impossible to get, and hydrocodone and oxycodone are almost as impossible. Most dentists and oral surgeons don't seem to have the authority to prescribe Schedule II drugs (the aforementioned opioids), and the ones who are able to prescribe them, will not do so. I have had to go to the emergency room twice to get dental block injections of marcaine. A friend gave me 2.5 Vicodin pills (a total of 12.5 mg of hydrocodone).
So, because of this b.s. I endure massive amounts of debilitating pain, lack of sleep due to being awoken by pain, and risk of liver damage and liver failure from too much Tylenol.
I had a root canal on Tuesday. I had run out of Vicodin by then. The pain has been so sever since Tueday, that I almost called an ambulance three times. I took 4,000 mg. of Tylenol yesterday. The dentist who did my root canal did not give me a prescription for anything. :(
There's also the problem of getting the prescription filled if one does get a doctor to write one a 'script for codeine or other opioids... Most of the time when I go to my CVS pharmacy, they tell me that that do not have the drug in stock. "Many pharmacies also refuse to carry Schedule II drugs."
