    You're liable to get some free lobsters from your patient in a trade for a Percocet script.

    We've got 8 in the boilah!

    YUMN!!!










    (BTW...just kidding about the narc trade. I kicked someone out of my practice who I suspected was selling, just a month after he gave me some lobsters.)

    o sure you did....another doctor or a patient was selling...you are vague....

    you know there are people like me who cant take vicadin or loritabs and must have percodan or perocset

    do you have any clue how hard it is for doctors to write me a script that works? the doctors balance the need for the pain killers and how fast you get addicted. i have had two situation where i had to have them for 30 days....day 35 sucks. day 40 i can face most of life again. but i do appreciate doctors who realize i dont need to be in pain cause i have the odd reaction to most pain killers.

    i really resist the fda for this. i resent the drug abusers who caused this.

    Lobster's in the belly. Soft-shelled are the best.

    Plus, we have probably 4 lobsters-worth for lobster salad sammiches tomorrow.

    Strawberry shortcake is currently being made and will be consumed momentarily.

    Humm, a doctor xotoxi? Okie dokie, I guess so. Could be.

    I have the same problem as bones. My reaction to all the usual painkillers is bad...no pain killed, itchiness like you would not believe and general misery. The only one I have been able to tolerate is injected morphine, given at the ER.

    Are these drugs all made from similar stuff?

    BTW, congrats on the great food and great spot. I am terribly jealous.

    I see you are from Cleveland. That's a great spot too.

    Well...maybe less of a spot, and more of a stain.
