This is in response to Concerned whose elderly mother is being prescribed narcotic medication The daughter indicates that the narcotics were prescribed for aches and Generally speaking narcotics are not prescribed for general aches and pains Ive had 20 years experience working alongside physicians and have never seen this happen Narcotic medication is used to treat pain associated with cancer injury or other serious pain conditions No one is able to feel anothers pain If Concerned Daughters mother has a condition that requires strong medication that is her physicians decision I agree that its important for the daughter to meet with the physician There may be a condition that the daughter is unaware of It may be that narcotic medication is the only treatment for the mother because of her age poor surgical risk etc Chronic serious pain can have a debilitating effect on an individual seriously impairing the quality of life Patients with chronic pain should not be considered addicts simply because they are treated with narcotics Addiction must be placed in proper perspective Physical dependence and tolerance of drugs are not the same as addiction Addiction is aberrant behavior and compulsive use of drugs for nonmedical purposes Individuals who suffer pain should be viewed with compassion EXPERIENCED IN PAIN DEAR EXPERIENCED No one should have to suffer pain when relief is available However since many seniors have difficulty Summer Fun Photo submitted Boys and girls ages 3 to 10 can participate in Summer Fun at New Braunfels Christian Academy from June 2 through August

monitoring their medications they are at risk of not only addiction but serious drug interactions as well If a physician determines that a senior patient needs narcotic medication it would be a kindness for a family member to stay involved to ensure the medication is taken as prescribed DEAR ABBY In response to Disgusted in My husband and I met and married in Florida 16 years ago He being single and in the Navy had visited many nude beaches overseas throughout the years so of course he tried to persuade me to go to a nudist club with him My response was always No way Two years ago we were sent to Virginia where he promptly found a nudist club For some reason I finally agreed to go with him I was just like Disgusted I had assumed that people went to nudist clubs only to gawk at all the naked people However I figured I might as well go just once so I could justify Texas Today Lack off response kills store giveaway essay contest CONROE AP It worked in the movies but in real life well it just didnt pan out After watching the movie The Spitfire Karla Fratt 40 of nearby Cut n Shoot announced in March that she would give one or all four of her school supply stores to whoever could best explain in 300 words or less why they wanted to own a business Just like in the movie Fratt had failed in attempts to sell her businesses So like in the movie she held an essay contest charging a entry fee If she received at least 500 entries as she hoped she would that would raise Wednesday she announced that shes scrubbed the idea Only 150 people responded she said She said shes already refunded the entry fees to those who sent in essays Fratt said she needed at least 500 entries to give away the smallest of the stores which is in Huntsville about 30 milesnorth of Conroe San

Pederncdes Electric Cooperative Inc Bringing Energyk the Texas Hill Country my feelings and prove to him that I was right Well was I wrong I was surprised at the nonreaction the people there had 1 was also sure that I would either catch him looking around or that I would be intimidated but neither happened Persuading me to go took a lot of perseverance on my husbands part and although I had determined that I was not the type to frequent such places I am very happy that I went once It became a valuable learning experience I guess this is a long way of saying dont be so quick to judge before you try something You may be pleasantly surprised HAPPILY SURPRISED IN MINNESOTA DEAR HAPPILY SURPRISED Call me hungup narrowminded square or behind the times but I would never be comfortable
