Hello. I am LarryL. I am in the midwest U.S. and am an established painter and performing musician. Diagnosed and successfully treated for lung cancer earlier this year, I got a lot of hydrocodone which helped the pain and which i also really enjoyed. Hydrocodone has helped me cope with significant arthritis, back problems and pain associated with a severely dislocated shoulder several years back. It has also helped me cope with life and also to create art and music more freely. I am afraid of my increasing use of hydocodone however. Somehow I want to ride this horse but not go over a cliff. i am here to learn and to interact with like minded people..
