The piece on pain, Chronic Pain:Addiction, Dependence, and Tolerance, came about because I found myself repeating things like "Just because I take pain medications, it doesn't mean I'm addicted." and also to address concerns I'd heard many times in the e-mail based support group on which I was a moderator. Theses concerns are valid, people do worry about getting addicted to pain meds because we have heard so much in the news about the evils of pain meds. Others worry because they've seen first hand what addiction does to the addict, and those around them. So I researched the issues, and what I found ended up in the long piece I wrote. I hope it has helped those facing the need for pain medication by putting some of their worries to rest.
Then the last word cloud comes from me using the link to my blog to make the cloud. It analyzed all of the words on here.
