This happened a couple of years ago, and I'd heard that she died, but I hadn't heard how until just awhile ago. Essentially what appears to have happened is that she'd had a root canal, was in a lot of extra pain, and took too much OxyContin (oxycodone). She went to sleep, her kids couldn't wake her up before they left for school, and by the time they came home she was dead. She was an intelligent woman who left behind a husband and three children, one a teenager and two in elementary school.
I want to take this opportunity to remind you to be careful. Pain, fibrofog, and drugs are a dangerous combination. Please do whatever you can to keep this from happening to you. Use a pill sorter. Have someone else hold onto your meds and give you only the prescribed amount. Write down the times you take pain pills. Whatever it takes.
