You know, I really don't think painkillers do much for me. I mean, the Lidocaine took several rounds to numb me, the Morphine didn't seem to do anything, and in thinking back, the Oxycodone really just had a placebo effect. Unless, of course, four oxycodone in as many hours will simply make you yawn a bit and carry on with your day. I haven't taken any pain pills today, and I feel the exact same amount of pain as I did when I was downing them regularly. Which was a couple days ago. I'm fairly certain I was just kidding myself that the stuff worked, what with all those people using it like a recreational drug. C'est la vie.
There's also a possibility that being under anaesthesia for around six hours when I was two may have messed up my painkiller response system. Of course, that's just a theory, but I do know (from firsthand reports) that the anaesthesia did have extreme side-effects on my personality. Apparantly I used to be a happy and outgoing child before the first surgery, and withdrawn afterwards. I don't really know, though. Enh, enough musing.
