Tell a friend.
Yup, I saw my GP yesterday and picked myself up a lovely(!) prescription for some baclofen. And I started it today (delayed from yesterday so I could have a few vodka's at the beer festival I went to last night).
Long story short (just wrote a load more and deleted it for various reasons), it's not what I wanted to do and I'm a bit sad about it. But it's totally the right decision and I'm going to take it. Even if it is pain in the ass raspberry flavour solution three times a day for the first several weeks. And if only because it is the less of two (supposed) evils.
