Oh yes, I have been there many times over the years. I would always tell myself if I can hang on one more day perhaps tomorrow will be better. I refuse to go to ER for CP because of how we are treated, at least in my neck of the woods. I figure I feel bad enough I need no grief from some idiot that has no clue.
I never go to my PCP for pain problems because I have a pain pump and thats up to my pump dr to handle.
I think its a sad state of affairs that many of us have to feel this way. Its wrong, but I really do not know what we can do to change it.
Sorry I am rambling more than helping you.
