Hiya, folks! Sorry I'm on here so late, but this conversation brought up some interesting philosophical thoughts for me. I recently got done taking oxicodone (for a broken tailbone), and I felt a little odd meditating while "under the influence." While I understand that I should be gentle on myself, the process of meditation is finding your "inner peace." By finding your inner peace, you need to have complete and solemn concentration. While on oxicodone, I found myself having difficult to concentrate. I hated it. Still, at least I know that I'm not alone when it comes to the subject of feeling powerless when taking such painkillers. Gotta say, I much prefer being off of them!
Anyway, I'm still experiencing a bit of pain from the broken bone, but being off the medicaton is a blessing. Sadly, the increased meditation has done nothing to ease the physical pain. I looked locally for some sort of new, innovative treatment
for more efficient pain management, but I also wanted to reach out here, for additional resources. I don't want to be drugged up, but I don't want to experience this nagging pain either. Any help would be sincerely appreciated! Thank you!
