Blind Items Revealed #3

February 3, 2018

Tough to get all those hundreds of opiates overseas when you don't have access to doctors like this A list celebrity does in the States.

Lady GaGa

Wonder how many condoms filled with Oxy pills gaga could hide up her asshole? I'm thinking a lot.

BlissBoo said...

She can suffer for all I care. Yes, I do like her music and have seen her live and enjoyed her performance, but as a person she's a rotten POS. Especially after that last blind with her being a prick to that music producer in Nashville and then stealing his song. Let her burn.

So sad if so because she's so talented.

The tough thing about opiate addiction is that your body genuinely loses the ability to modulate pain on it's own. You develop new pains that never would have existed in the first place and you become convinced that you truly need them. Evidenced by Gaga's horrific-looking "fibromyalgia" in her documentary. I've been there. 2 years, 1 month sober tomorrow and more pain-free than ever.

Gag Gag must go!

Laurita said...

@just sayin’: Way to go on your sobriety! That’s something to truly be proud of. :) Best wishes to you.

Sending support your way! I hope each day, your pain continues to diminish.

@Blissboo
I don't know much about Gaga but that blind made me mad and frustrated

Niemand said...

One day at a time, @justsayin'! I know it doesn't mean too much, coming from someone you don't know, but I'M PROUD OF YOU!! Keep it up and know that you're doing the right thing and I'm pulling for you!

Atomic City said...

Keep it up, just sayin'. I'm right there with ya, sis. You're doing great.

sandybrook said...

Good for you just sayin'😘

Sd Auntie said...

Congratulations just saying.

It depends where overseas you are. There is zero problem getting opiates in the UK. From codeine to diamorphine it's all available. I'm fortunate in that my oxycodone hydrochloride is on repeat prescription. (Fallen off too many motorcycles too often at too high a speed. )

Thanks everyone, sniff, sniff. One of the best decisions I ever made was to try to quit. I said if I was still genuinely in pain after a year I'd go back on the rx...nobody wants to live in misery. Thankfully I was fine. I'm healthier every day and reclaiming my life.

More Cowbell said...

Although opiates are addictive for everybody, there is a gene expression that makes it MUCH harder for some people to quit opiates once they start. If I remember correctly, it is the HPR1 gene, or something like that.
I have that gene expression and went through my own struggles.
Even though I'm not a fan of Gaga, I really feel for anyone with an opiate/heroin addiction.
I have a good friend who couldn't kick it and died of an overdose. He had a 12-year-old daughter. It is so sad.

More Cowbell said...

And a huge congratulations to any person here who has managed to kick an opiate addition of any kind!

More Cowbell said...

"addiction," not "addition." :)

just sayin' said...

Thanks guys, and congratulations, More Cowbell -- having the genetic predisposition must make it all that much harder. I've got a son who's addicted to heroin and struggling, so I've wondered if we have it too. Very sorry to hear about your friend and his daughter.

More Cowbell said...

@just sayin', thank you for your very kind words! People who aren't naturally addictive don't usually understand how hard it is. Maybe you and/or your son carry the gene.
I got a whole genetic profile done through 23 and Me back when they could give out medical info. Then the AMA shut the medical stuff down because they didn't want people getting medical info that wasn't from doctors.
It was such a relief to know I was genetically predisposed to be addicted to certain things and that I wasn't just weak.
I wish all the best to your son. For many people, opiates/heroin takes away the physical and emotion pain better than anything. I'm praying for him.
I was into cocaine in my early twenties, and getting off of that was a breeze compared to opiates. You literally feel as if you will die when you go off them.

More Cowbell said...

I messed up. It is called the OPRM1 gene. Some info below:

I always found it weird that in the UK I couldn't find ibuprofen in bulk (like in the US), but could get acetaminophen with codeine over the counter. I also remember a British comedian's bit about a cashier refusing to let him buy multiple bottles of aspirin because he could be trying to kill himself. He jokingly replied that if he were that serious about killing himself, he would just drink the multiple bottles of cleaning solutions they have no problem selling him.

Janet Young said...

Y'all are mean. She lives with chronic pain due to auto-immune related illnesses and still dances her heart out at every show. I'd need opiates too.

Han Niam said...

@cowbell Congratulations on making it through. And 23&me does health stuff again. I’m still thrown for a loop by one or two of my good reveals from them. Genes aren’t everything but it can be nice to have an explanation for some things.

@Just sayin And a big congratulations to you, too! That can’t be easy, especially if you do have the gene expression cowbell mentioned.

Though I wish you wouldn’t put fibromyalgia in quotes. It’s very real and exists as a separate thing from opiate addiction. I’ve got fibro and it’s a misery all it’s own. I’ve also also a gene expression that means opiates don’t work the way they’re supposed to on me.* But I’d never put “addiction” in quotes just because I haven’t experienced it y’know?

*which makes them about as fun as a course of Cipro and about as difficult to stop taking as Aspirin.

just sayin' said...

Thanks cowbell, I got started with cocaine early on, too. Janet Young -- nobody's being mean to Gaga. I know that the pain she is feeling is real. As I said in my earlier post, opiates destroy the body's ability to modulate pain. So muscle or joint pains, new and old, are made worse in the long run. Fortunately it's reversible but you have to go through a long period of forcing your body to produce it's own endorphins before you're back to normal. Withdrawal, a relatively short-term experience in hell, as most people think of it, actually goes on for months and years in the form of Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. During the episodes of PAWS which last minutes or days, often coming in response to an emotional stressor, you have to white knuckle it through but you come out the other side feeling free, better than before, and a little bit stronger. All I'm saying is that Gaga can be cured of her pain if she wants to. Massage and heat therapy and topical anesthetics work better than opiates for muscle pains, as she must have as a professional dancer.

Han Niam: You're right -- I've spent a lifetime with medically diagnosed fibromyalgia and I don't mean to diminish it. But I promise you, losing any extra pounds, abstaining from sugar (the single worst pain inducer I know of -- if I eat candy I start HURTING within minutes), staying well-hydrated, getting regular exercise and ibuprofen or naproxen work infinitely better than opiates for fibromyalgia. Unless your real goal is to get buzzed. I don't mean to be snide, it's just that addiction breeds self-deception, and overcoming that is an ongoing process for me and I must be honest about my experience.

Blue said...

You are absolutely correct. Many people are unaware how that does that to the body. My father and my bff both suffered/suffer from extreme body pain- due to too many years of using opiates.
I thought the same thing as you watching that film.
