Hi there. I can only imagine how hard it is to go off pain meds when you have a legitimate pain problem. Have you seen a pain management dr? Since you take them for pain but also enjoy them, you know you cannot stay on them forever. Maybe there are some non-addictive pain meds you can take along with physical therapy? You will have to detox off of the pain meds. Taper, taper, taper - less every day and prolong the first one of the day. It will be hard going to nursing school and raising kids. I may be mistaken, but don't hospitals do drug testing before hiring? You need to be clean by the time you start a nursing job. You will be doling out meds that you'll have to handle and resist the urge to take. I hope you can find a good resolution to your addiction and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Best wishes!
JB
