Beware of Opioids
Opioids are highly addictive narcotics that create the euphoria of analgesia
(pain-free), and the sickness of hyperalgesia (pain-sensitivity). The euphoria of
analgesia, and the sickness of hyperalgesia, are polar opposites, which
each other: the euphoria blinds you to the sickness; and the sickness makes
crave the euphoria. Ironically, opioids create and aggravate the very sickness
they seem to cure.
