Quick thought on House 5.05 "Lucky Thirteen"

[climbing on soapbox] 

It caused me physical pain last night, hearing Wilson call his beloved friend a drug addict.  And put us back to square one; I'd been so pleased, the week before, when Wilson hadn't argued with House's 'Vicodin as leash' theory.  I'd believed that Wilson finally, finally was undergoing a change in his perspective of the pills.  And last night, of course it didn't help when House referred to himself as a "doctor with a drug habit." I know--how they, and we, view the Vicodin pretty much depends on who's writing the episode.  So much for continuity in such an important aspect of the character, and the show.

Not surprising...lots of drugs do this. Meperadine given to kidney stone patients, for example. Shoots the pain off the scale. Give them Toredol, they're much better. Given that most of the meds we give for pain don't actually get RID of the pain...rather they alter our perception of it, I'm not surprised that cannibus increased your pain perception. ..does make me wonder if anyone's ever bothered to study it in conjunction with the use of other anti-spasmotics, though. Umm.

oh my--you said the bad word--anti-spasmodics. the things that mess with [what's left of] my brain. so, i live with the spasticity instead--and consider it a fair trade-off.

they never discuss house actually having spasms in the leg, but it's an educated assumption i make, based on the known state of the quad, and that there's got to have been further atrophy over the years, and walking with a cane and off-kilter.... anyway, i need him to have leg spasms; they're a mainstay in oh-so-many of my plots! :)

btw--hope you're feeling better.
