NEW YORK – Paula Abdul has told a magazine that she overcame a 12-year addiction to painkillers last year. The “American Idol” judge tells Ladies Home Journal in its June issue that she checked into a resort and spa in Carlsbad, Calif., where she weaned herself off her medications last Thanksgiving.
Abdul says she didn’t like existing the way she had been.
The magazine says the 46-year-old singer-dancer had suffered for years from chronic pain caused by an unusual series of accidents.
Abdul’s spokesman, Jeff Ballard, says Abdul “has moved forward in her life.”
I don’t like existing the way I have been either, but changing it is easier said than done. I could quit my pills in a New York minute (ok in a week or 2) if I knew I could feel fine after quitting them. I wonder if she continues to live with her pain condition…the article says “she had suffered for years from chronic pain” but says nothing of whether she still has the pain and if not, how she overcame it.
This bitch would like to know how that bitch did it.
