  • Would Thomas be wrong if he got Steffy pain pills or not???? [Merged]

    Dr Finn told her to just get Motrin and that's mainly because she isn't being honest, about the extreme pain she is in. She lives alone he already told her not to lift anything and that includes her three year old. If Thomas knows his sister is suffering with pain and she can't get a script anywhere else, would he be wrong to get the pills from Vinny for her? I don't think Vinny is a drug dealer, he said he does favors for a couple of friends. What that entails we don't know. I rather see Steffy confide in Thomas, and tell him how she feels and doesn't know what to do.

    Thomas trying to help her he decides to get the pills that she needs, they can have Steffy still be addicted and all that, but we can have Thomas kinda blame himself for supplying it for her and the siblings can have a storyline, that doesn't center around Lope and there problems with them. I want Thomas to have a separate story, with work and maybe a romance with Nicole would be nice. Especially if she is divorced from Zende. I think they may be cute together. Keep him away from Maya, Hope and gods sakes Flo! Lol

    Anyway, how would you like to see it go? I can see people being torn. If Thomas is really trying to help, because over the counter isn't working it may not be such a bad thing. Especially if she can't see or get them from her regular doctor, and isn't in a pain management program.

    What do u guys think????

    It would be a completely irresponsible so I can certainly see Thomas doing it and embroiling Vinnie in it as well. It would also be illegal. Again this storyline is absurd. Steffy is financially able to get the best doctors in LA, plus physical therapists, and pain management specialists etc!
    Her idea of getting better by lugging a baby around and swallowing pills without therapy is clearly Is not working!

      Has she been to her PCP yet? She is suppose to consult with PCP following ER visit. He/She may be able to help.

        It's been mentioned several times that she has an appointment with her PCP "later this week." I assume that means we haven't gotten to "later this week" yet, though it's hard to tell, since time is so fluid on BB. Sometimes a single day takes two weeks, and then in the next episode, they mention it's been "several days" since the last episode.

      The writing is on the wall, that is exactly what Thomas would do. Another way to make Thomas look like the bad guy. I hate this story.

        If they go that way, I suspect that it will be more a case of Thomas being cast as stupid and misguided than actually evil. He'll be cast as a brother who couldn't stand to see his sister in pain, particularly since he felt guilty about the pain he's already put her through himself, as opposed to someone who wanted Steffy to get hooked on opioids. I'm not saying they will or should go that way but simply that if they did make Thomas the one who gets Steffy the pills that it wouldn't necessarily make him irredeemable.

      I still don't get why Thomas is still in contact with Vinny to begin with

        Steffy could get the pills directly from Vinnie, or she could go doctor shopping. I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that Thomas will be involved. If he does provide Steffy with pain pills, then yes, that is a big mistake.

        She needs to be honest with Dr. Finn, and she needs to stop lifting things. Taylor or Ridge should be there to help her when Amelia isn't around.

          Belindaa I think that's exactly what's happening. She doesn't exactly want to accept help and she usually battles through things on her own. Since she's never been through something like this, she's probably being stubborn. There's also the issue that everyone else is going through things so she probably doesn't want to bother them.

          I think it's also a matter of Steffy not thinking she has anyone to ask for reliable help--even Amelia, whom she pays, can't seem to get to work on time anymore. Ridge is about to be embroiled in more Bridge drama, and he'll decide he can put that first because Steffy's "strong." She has reason not to believe she can trust Thomas fully after everything he's been involved with lately. If she lets Liam help too much, that brings up all kinds of issues with Hope and her need to play Mommy, not to mention Brooke, who was claiming Kelly would be better off with her and her family before Kelly was even born. The last time Taylor was on, Steffy was taking care of her more than she was taking care of Steffy. Eric can't even be bothered to ask about her. And, like the rest of the characters on the show, she doesn't really have friends to speak of. If Pam were still around, she might be able to help, as she likes to cook and has babysat for other characters' children a time or two, but she's off-contract. So, really, she may not want to ask for help only to be told, uh, gee, well, they'd love to--and to call them if she ever really needs anything--but you know, she's so strong that they know she'll be able to get through this on her own and they wouldn't want to imply that she isn't.

          You're right, Xyla Steffy doesn't have many great options right now. Everyone in her family is embroiled in their own drama, and I can understand why she's hesitant about Thomas with Kelly. She also doesn't want Liam around, or for Kelly to go stay with him, and I can understand that, too. And now, with the pain and the medication, she's not really in a fit state to be hiring someone to replace Amelia. I guess she's just doing the best she can under the circumstances. It's a shame the show hasn't given Steffy any close friends who could help her out, because in real life many of us rely on friends when the chips are down.

      • #7
        If Thomas wants to be helpful, he could let Finn know how much Steffy's trying to do on her own that could be contributing to her pain--and he could try being more helpful himself by making sure she's not, for instance, lifting too much. I'm guessing Steffy might not feel entirely comfortable letting him take Kelly out on his own, but if she's right there, he could still help with her care while she was able to sit/lie down more. Or he could be the one doing things like making sure her snacks are in the fridge or getting on the floor playing with her while Steffy stays on the couch. He could also try waking up their dad to the fact that Steffy could use more help, and if Ridge is too busy with his love life to step it up personally, he could do things like make sure there's a housekeeper helping with some of the daily/weekly cleaning or that groceries/meals get delivered. I know Steffy could do some of those things herself, but since she's determined not to rely on anyone else, possibly because she doubts she can, it's time for the rest of them to step it up and make it clear that they're going to do so, whether she thinks she needs their help or not.

          I agree. Thomas is the perfect person to help Steffy right now since Taylor isn't being brought back. I really like their recent scenes together.

      • #8
        Thomas should tell his sister to see a doc.
        And then he should help his sister with Kelly and all chores and insist that she properly rests

          He doesn't kiss her forehead or anything, he just goes "well nice talking to you, bye and good luck" LOOOL. It just makes me laugh each time. Because if it weren't for the social distancing, we would have seen Thomas do something affectionate, like kiss Steffy's forehead, or hugging her before he leaves especially after she almost died in the accident.

          Don't get me wrong I am loving my Tridge children scenes, and like I totally understand the whole COVID restrictions, and how the actors are forced to make scenes look more intimate. However, I feel like to make the scenes feel less awkward and more intimate, in the blocking, they could have written that Thomas blows her kiss or something affectionate that they could do in the distance that seems brotherly, other than like that awkward "goodbye" that they keep having him do.

          Thoughts?

            I find it more disconcerting that he just sort of pops up at her house and walks right in. I know he's her brother, but could he knock first? And for single mother with a young child, why doesn't Steffy keep her door locked, particularly at night?

            I would find it more awkward if they were touching. We all know what's going on right now and that these soaps are being filmed taking the pandemic into consideration. Yes, we know how characters would usually interact but we should also know that under the circumstances those types of interactions aren't possible so just get use to the new normal in the way filming is being done. Better safe than sorry.

            Wait, I think you misconstrued my post. I totally understand the restrictions, and in fact, I am super glad that B&B are taking the extremes, and are social distancing even on set. I am glad that they are taking the precautions so that the actors are being safe, and I am in no way complaining about the way they are filming. In fact, I think out of all the soaps back filming, B&B is the one that is being the safest, in comparison to GH who are still touching, actors being 2ft apart, and over 4-5 characters in scenes etc..

            I was just saying how I find it a little awkward that in the blocking that they don't have Thomas, blow her a kiss, or something affectionate AT a distance before he leaves. Even in the scripts and dialogue, the way they write it so awkwardly because Thomas is like "well, bye good luck" --- like there is no affection even in the wording or anything. So I just find that hilarious and awkward ahah.

          I think Thomas will think he's doing the right thing if that happens, he wants to help his sister, of course that's not the right solution. Maybe he'll think it's just once, but might find that it takes it deeper and Steffy gets addicted, good script for the brother and sister and for both actors.

            Steffy's also been reluctant to take even the amount of medication she's supposed to take on schedule. If she'd been taking more than she should have, Finn would have been suspicious when she said she was getting low on pills, and he wasn't. Thomas may feel it's highly unlikely that she would become addicted and that he could trust her to be responsible and take one only when she really needed it. However, the other problem is if he gets them through Vinnie, they may be stronger than what she's been taking or not even be the same drug but something much more dangerous. Vinnie doesn't strike me as being smart enough or well-connected enough not to be a potentially problematic source of anything, not even the time of day, much less prescription drugs.

            Well Xyla that's true. Vinnie might not have what the doctor was giving, it could be something much stronger and make Steffy react differently. I remember years ago I was on hydrocodone 5-325, and I got switched to Percocets 7.5-325 through another doctor after my insurance switched. Anyway my new doctor said the Percocets were stronger but basically the same. That was a huge difference! I founfpd myself sleeping all day, couldn't even get up up to eat lucky I didn't have kids but that could happen to Steffy.

            Thomas brings her say 60 pills for a couple of weeks or more, and she not realizing the strength is different could accidentally overdose, or they may work much better and if Finn finds out that she is is feeling better due to stronger dose how does she explain where she got it? Because if she just gives a Dr name, he could inquire and things would go off the rails for Sinn.

            Xyla I was wondering about Steffy taking her medicine on schedule because I remember Finn mentioning it would be difficult to manage the pain if Steffy didn't stick to the schedule. She seemed to wait until she was in a lot of pain before she took them. I'm wondering if this is the result of what Finn warned her about.

            I don't think she was taking more than necessary but she did say the prescription was only supposed to last a couple of days. I kind of wish they were a little more obvious in showing how all of this is happening rather than leave it up to inferring.

        • #11
          No, Thomas should not get pills for Steffy. Only a physician should give someone opioids. It looks like Steffy is headed toward an opioid addiction. I hope Thomas doesn't get the pills for her. I want him to help her kick the addiction. I love their scenes where he's so supportive of her and caring.

            Camille, I was just asking because this is more common than you think. Your in pain, the doctor suddenly stops giving the medication so people go to sources like Vincent.

            It's not more common than I think, lakergirl 04. I live between two very wealthy drug dealers in Hollywood Hills, one west of me, one east of me. One of them is actually a very nice person, a Vet who couldn't get a job. Constant business. It would still be wrong of Thomas to help Steffy obtain illegal drugs, though. I hope Thomas doesn't aid in that, but I fear he might. Good material for JMW, though.

          Seriously does anyone know anyone with the same symptoms that Steffy has? Pain and no
          reason given for it? They must really think the viewers are dumb. I said before her pain must
          be psychological. Now she will keep taking pills and caring for her daughter? I can hardly
          watch anymore along with the Bridge story. The writing is a disappointment after waiting so
          long for it to return.

            Steffy has a very good reason for her pain. She has broken ribs and a back injury. I've had broken ribs, and almost nothing hurts as much. It doesn't abate when you lie down, either. I find Steffy's pain very believable.

            littleliz She's got a sprained back and fractured ribs as per transcripts from Friday July 31st 2020.. a little more then a couple of hurt ribs..

            Doctor: You know, it's totally up to you, but there is no need to suffer.
            Ridge: What did the x-rays show?
            Doctor: Bad news is, beyond the contusions, you sprained your back. And my suspicions were correct. You fractured some ribs.
            Steffy: And the good news?
            Doctor: The pain that you're in won't last forever. Ribs, they usually heal on their own.

            She was also specifically told, on multiple occasions, that her combined injuries would take several weeks to heal, and that was assuming that she would be following the doctor's orders, which she clearly is not in terms of limiting her activities and taking her pain pills on schedule as opposed to waiting until the pain was so bad she couldn't take it.

            I had broken ribs, and they hurt for three months. Horrible pain for the first two, and OTC medications won't touch them. I did find some rub I used, but it didn't help much. I hate the way opioids make me feel, so I took nothing and was just in pain for a fourth of a year. Ribs do heal on their own, but it takes them a long, painful time to do it.

            She never opened it--or at least the viewers never saw her open it. I don't think she even put his flowers in water. Nor did she react at all to Thomas telling her once again that Vinnie has a crush on her. She said, sort of blandly, that it was nice of him to send the flowers and gift via Thomas but that's it.
