I am still wondering whether he really has physical pain or if it is in his head after he recovered so nicely from his brain reboot.
    I was just wondering if Wilson is going to set up House or Tritter. David Morse said in TV Guide he was only signed up for 6 episodes and I think we hit that this week, so I was thinking maybe Wilson isn't really going to "rat" House out, but somehow get rid of Tritter for him.

    If pain killer withdrawals of the body are anything like painkiller withdrawals in your head (rebound headaches) then I would say it is probably physical pain. And bad too. In my younger years I would go through bottles and bottles of painkillers for terrible migraines and headaches. The breaking point for me was one night when I was at work, and I ended up taking so many Excedrin that night, because my headache just would not go away, that my vision got blurry and I could not see the papers I was trying to read. I didn't think I had some kind of pain killers problem. I just thought I had freakishly incurable headaches or something and had to always be taking pills to manage them. Later on I learned about rebound pain and decided to go cold turkey for a while to let my system recover. I still get headaches, but only like, half of the days... and now I only take 2 Tylenol and I wait until a headache is actually physically affecting my day before I use them to get myself back to fully funtioning.
    Sometimes I will have one for a few days before I resort to taking something..

    I have FMS and when it hits, it hits HARD. It is not unreasonable for me to take 1000-1200 mg Ibuprofin at a time four-five times a day. But I was basically told by my specialist to take as much as I need whenever I need it. I can only imagine with House what he might be needing.
    I went the Vicodin route early in the diagnosis and when I found myself losing track of time, I went to a different med.

    Wow, I am so sorry to hear that, and admire your courage to go cold turkey! Even though I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (FMS) like kimrs, it has been a long time since I have had chronic pain, and I have forgotten how bad it could get. Thank you for broadening my understanding.

    I realize the withdrawal would be excruciating for House, I didn't mean to minimize it, (if it sounded that way - I apologize for that). His personality attests to the severity of his pain. I think it's just that I was remembering Cuddy and Wilson questioning in either the 1st or 2nd episode of this season whether the pain was really starting to come back, or if he was just dependant (crutch) on the drugs even though he had been successfully weaned off.
    For some reason, I remember both of them having doubts whether he really had pain - but obviously he is addicted, and something needs to be done about it. Soon! Yes kimrs, I agree -the story arc for Tritter should be complete with the next epsiode being his last I think.

    titan.tv indicates a new episode next week (yea!) and a repeat (boo!) the following week.

    There are some alternative medicines that could help someone like House, but we'll never hear about them on a program like this.

    new House tonight! And I am stuck at work giving a final
    All I can pray is that my VCR/Digital cable don't fail me tonight! And I am knocking on wood as I type, so that I didn't just jinx myself.

    Anyone watching? The mother is the same woman who plays Denny Crane's little (sorry for the pun) love interest, Bethany on Boston Legal.

    Oh no! You didn't sound like you were minimizing at all. I just thought maybe you hadn't known about rebound pain. My son has just gone through teething, and so the topic came up a lot between myself and my mom. She likes to keep a steady stream of infant tylenol in babies "Until the whole thing passes" Wereas I just like to use it occasionally when he's really being upset by it. I'm always weary of dosing him too often for fear of rebound pains or damaging his little liver or something.

    My mother has bad Fibromyalgia as well. For years they thought I had it too *still so*. But for some reason, as I have gotten older, either my lifestyle changes or... something has caused it to be so much less severe. I guess so far I am one of the lucky ones Anyway, back on the topic of House.. I am DVRing it so I can watch it tomorrow. Husband is sick tonight and I have to go put the big baby to bed

    I found tonight's episode so....frustrating.
    Firstly, the cop is still on. And he's willing to give House a deal if he pleads guilty (the deal being two months in rehab). He's been riding House so hard for weeks to settle for rehab? I don't buy that it was only because he was reliant on Wilson's testimony, as he said at the end, so when he had new evidence in (namely, House's stealing the dead cancer patient's drugs from the hospital pharmacy) he was back to gunning for House. Argh!
    Secondly, Cameron is really annoying me. She is so sanctimonius. I don't get where she gets off chastising Wilson for going to the detective to cut a deal for House. She berates Wilson for this, saying he was acting out of his own self-interest first and foremost, without caring about House. First off, who is she to say this? Secondly, Wilson obviously cares about House - anyone can see that. And even if self-interest was his sole motivation, is it so wrong? Is he supposed to live without money, his prescription-signing privileges etc. forever?
    And then the end, when House finally seemed like he had wised up, and went to accept the deal for rehab, only to be told it was no longer available! What's he going to do now? He made a move towards getting help and the door was shut in his face. How frustrating!
