Oh my, I'm glad Im not alone on this one, Im on percs every six hours I feel as if I couldn't function without them. Im scared of becoming addicted if not already, but I know I need them for the pain not only for Lupus and Fibro pain but I also have avascular necrosis pain on my knees and that in itself is very painful. Like you though I hope this is not lifelong!
