lol..never mind...i found the next button.....lol...duhhhh
HI Lorine, How was your holiday? Trishes site is running out of room, time to blow up ur site with chatter,lol.U left off by teeling us about ur script refill,U read my last post about the script and him telling me by taking one extra was a breech in contract so he will nolonger keep me as a patient. It is getting so hard, (due to FDA) crackin down on them giving out narcs sripts...I just dont get it, we have all the documentation and diagnosis to substantiate the need to B on them but they just dont care.Its hard enough ,not to mention the embarresment we go through when we p/u the meds, they look at us like druggies, its so degrating. Most of the pharmacies in my area dont even carry most of the meds im am prescribed,,I was told once by CVS that they dont carry oxycodones because of the area I live in, that was a sllap in the face.Theres a part of my town that is considered to have a reputation of "low lives" alot of low income,people on section 8,"toothles wonders" as they call them,so the pharmacies have the nerve to label all of us in this town , I live in Shirley,Long Island,yes there are alot of those people on the system, But there are alot of us normal middle class income families,too, but as soon as U say ur address they take two steps back from U.Its very sad.Thats why I say its very embarissing when I go to the pharmacies.Most of the time I go a few towns over to get my scripts, but again as soon as U mention ur address they look at u weird.anyway,,now im back to square one trying to find a PM doctor which isnt easy and getting an appoitment ,,I already called one but there next available isnt till Jan 11th, so I made the appointment,its in Southampton,30 min away,but I have no other choice,this should B interesting Again, to see what the outcome is, and what he will prescribe.U said ur Husband is on disability,is it due to his diabetes, or does he have more going on?My husband is diabetic also. U have ur hands full,Im sorry to hear about the situation w/ur son,Its hearbreaking to see your child hurt, my prayers R w/u and ur family,hoping for better days to come. TTY soon,hope u have a good day,,Rene :)

O.K. as far as post op. recovery goes...almost 3 months out and still taking the same amount of pain meds as before, and they still don't work. There's absolutely something going on in the thoracic area. I have surgery to help the lumbar and my neck goes out, have surgery to fix my neck and the thoracic goes out...So, I just need to get to a place that I can just "BE." I don't think this is going to get any better, this is as good as it gets. Ho-Hum.
Hello Renee and every one else...
sorry I have been MIA for a few days as we are having issues with my son and his fiance'....I can't believe this is happening right now but it is taking a toll on me and my family...I even quit smoking and bought a nicotine free E cig..TRU...really nice....and it works but in all this stress I caved..:(...not today tho..I am trying really hard....and to top it all off I have a tooth ache and need pennicillin..ughhh doctors....said I have to see a dentist...I said to my primary...I cant sit in a dentist chair...well to her office anyway and left a message begging...The office said...You need a dentist...duhhh..I said I just had major back surgery with a fusion and don't know if I can get in and out of a chair....I don't see the big deal of writing a script for some pennicillin....It's not like I'm asking for any pain meds...I have enough of them...lol....but whatever..I have been taking some cipro and I'm finding that it's not working much at al..to tell u the truth neither does the pain meds..it has to be pulled or root canaled...ouch..what else do I need....but anyway last nite I was in alot of surgical pain that only percoset worked...I dont know...maybe I am not doing enough or am I doing too much or is it normal...I feel terrible...stress...ughhhh...but anyway spinettes...have a good evening..!
Hi Lorine,,all this uneccessary stress is increasing ur pain, ur tensing up causing the muscles to tighten which is causing the pain. Hang inthere better days R coming,,all will work out w/ur son,Im praying for u n ur family at this time. Rene:) missed u :)
Lorine, I went through some very difficult times with my daughter when she was pregnant and not married. The stress of seeing kids suffer really does break your heart. I always felt so freakin helpless and wanted to make things better for her and I couldn't. The worst is when a new child is involved. I hope they can work it out so you can get back to healing. Xo
Wide awake! Recovery so far has been a roller coaster ride; emotionally and physically. You wake up each day never really knowing what lies ahead. Biggest crapshoot around. I have to say I was a lot more positive the first month, but these past 2 weeks have really made me question my recovery. It seems like I reached this certain plateau and now things just seem to be in the same range. Ill be 6 weeks post op on Tues. you feel like your waiting for something but you don't know what. I guess I thought how I felt would be an every day kind of progression. Now I'm worried this is as good as its gonna get. I'm probably writing a lot of the same stuff on this forum because it forces you to hop around from post to post
