Trying my best to have a painkiller free day!

It's 6pm right now, I went out this morning and when I got back I fell asleep for four hours. I may still have codeine in my system from last night. Trying so hard not to become dependent on it but I hurt so much all the time!!

When your in excusiating pain.. what else can you do but take something to help. I have hard medication and over the counter. I try to use the Tylenol Arthritis and a muscle relaxer first. If it doesn't help and I'm in severe pain I will take the stronger meds such as hydrocodone... I would rather not take anything but that's unrealistic if I'm in horrific pain or having a fibro flare.
