high school reunion

My high school reunion is today.  I will not be there.  Five years ago, when I attended the reunion, I had two healthy sons.  I just can't go because I keep thinking, "When I was there last, Austin was alive."  I will miss seeing my good friends, I dearly love them, but I wouldn't be good company.  I would cry.

My name is Kim Adam and i would like to show you my personal experience with Oxycontin.

I have taken for 3 years. I am 23 years old. I think it is the best pain killer there is. Although it's coming very abused, I think that it is a very powerful reliever and that more doctors should look into it for pain relief.

I have experienced some of these side effects-
mild dependency and constipation

I hope this information will be useful to others,

Oxycontin Side Effects

Dear Kim,

What is giving you so much pain for three years that you need a drug like Oxycontin? Oxycontin was formulated for the use of terminally ill cancer patients. Purdue knew that it was addictive and dangerous, yet because of the enormous financial revenue, they encouraged doctors to prescribe it freely. That is why Purdue was successfully sued in a landmark lawsuit.

I hope your pain issues are resolved and you can quit taking Oxycontin. Remember though, many people die when they go off Oxycontin for a week and then take the same dose. That is what happened to my son.

The best of luck to you,
Lesli
