Hello~Kitty,
If I could I would fix you all dinner for one week. A casserole, or chicken, bread, green salad,
milk, chocolate cake. Every afternoon or every evening. Every single person in
the pain gang would do the same. What kinda neighbor do you have anyway, girl?

Well, Kitty, I'm glad you haven't lost your sense of humor in all this. She threw her shoes?? smhair If she comes to your door tell her you're not Bush and this isn't Iraq! smilewinkgrin

I know about having to drive distances in bad weather. Look, sometimes it's not as bad as you think it's going to be, and if you're like me your worry all the day before about something you can't have any control over. If it's seriously bad, you just can't go and that's that. There is no sense losing your life if it's a blizzard or an ice storm. Do you have an ER near you? If the weather is seriously bad can you just go there and explain and ask for a temporary refill on the suboxone? I mean, they'd know the weather situation by looking out the window.

If you get on the road and it's kind of just winter weather, well, take a relaxing CD to put on, make sure you have some blankets and warm coffee and your cell phone, and make an adventure of it. And just stop or turn around if it gets too crazy. That's the best you can do. We'll all send you calming energy. yeah

Thank you again for the sweet replies. I almost forgot about that Bush thing lol. I'm going to take the advise on making it an adventure but my radio doesnt work for some odd reason and keep forgetting to get that looked at so that just makes it harder on keeping my mind busy. This drive is so boring, theres nothing but cows and more cows to look at. Last time I went I took my kids with me and they kept asking me why I was driving around in circles, I guess it kinda feels that way lol. But the trip to the ER is out of question cause a doctor cannot prescribe it without being certified for it, and the nearest doctor that is certified is the doctor I'm going to, so theres nothing they can give me to even replace it while taking Suboxone cause the way it works is that it blocks out other narcotics and then when it's time to get back on the sub I would have to go thru withdrawals because Suboxone can cause precepitated withdrawals if you have another pain med in your body, it's a very weird narcotic, these people are getting smart in the way they make these new prescription drugs. I do have a little stash hidden away for emergencies but not enough to last me til after the new years. I guess I waited too long to get my oil changed, they where all closed by 4pm so I went to put oil in myself and couldnt figure out which kind to buy for the life of me so luckly this sweet lady that worked at the gas station looked it up in my van's owner manual for me. Then my gas cover was frozen on so that was fun, I was screaming from the pain of the freezing cold and not being able to turn it, I just felt like whatever could go wrong was gonna go wrong, so by the time I got it open and got back in the van my kids drank my Italian soda I bought from the gas station, just wasnt fair!!! I guess I should go to bed before my day gets any worse and hopefully get some sleep for my drive tomorrow. Good night.

Hi HelloKitty,

I'm so sorry that you have been having such a rough time lately! Bronchitis is just awful! I used to get it all the time when I was little. I'd literally have it the entire winter & I was an athlete and racing would cause me to redevelop it again! So I can definitely sympathize with you! I agree with the others to forget about your neighbor. You are sick (in addition to being in pain), end of story. She should respect that. I cannot believe she threw a shoe at your window! What a ridiculous & obnoxious thing to do! I'm glad it didn't actually hit the window, then you could have had even more problems on your hands!

Good luck driving to the doctor's today! Please drive carefully! Take your time, go slow, and if you have to, turn around. It isn't worth putting your life at risk. We've also been getting a lot of winter weather here lately. We had an ice storm a few days ago, and today we are getting a snow storm that is supposed to bring up to 16 in! I love the snow when I'm home & don't have to go out, like today, but I know all to well that driving in it can be quite a nightmare! We're supposed to get another big storm on Sunday too, and possible yet another one on Christmas Eve. It sounds like this is going to be a snowy winter for most of the country!

Sending you warmth & well wishes! I hope you feel better soon & make it safely to your doctor's and back!

Hey Kitty...the next time your neighbor comes over uninvited....cough and sneeze on her and then say "oh no, the doc said I was very contagious....sorry"....that'll make her think twice....

Hello Everyone. I made it back alive!!! Actually the roads wernt too bad, about 20 miles out it was kinda rough but the rest of the way it was dry and the same way back, nice and dry til almost home. I guess after next month I only have to visit the doctor once every 2 months so thats great for me. I talked to the doctor about how the Cymbalta was working great for me at 30mgs and when we went up to 60mgs I got very drowsey and felt like it stopped working, so he told me to just hold on a little bit longer before we decide to change the Cymbalta. He said my depression and anxiety is probably just from the holidays and being sick (I didnt tell him about my annoying neighbors). I really need to move out but I cant cause I'm on section 8. The people that live upstairs (not the one that threw the shoes) are very heavly into bad stuff and it scares me to death, especially if they find out I'm getting prescribed pain meds, and I guess one of the lady's husband is getting out of prison here next week which is making me not be able to sleep. I dont know what I'm gonna do. I wish I was working so I could afford a regular apartment. Now I just hope the doctor remembered to call in my meds this time cause last month he forgot to after our visit, so I better go to the pharmacy and check before the doctor goes home for the day and holidays. Bubye.

i used to get pneumonia & bronchitis every year until i moved to florida. there are 2 home remedies i use. the tefflon pearls will help eventually. i like to make a cup of hot tea, a little sugar & add a peppermint to it. (the pepperment & heat feels so goooood) and the old school asthma trick-put your head over a bowl of hot water/almost boiling then put a towel over your head & the pot- helps you breathe in the steam & i joke i get a mini facial. there is also a thing called a netti pot- you can get them at a cvs, its a strange little pot you pour saline up your nose & it comes out the other nostril, its hard to explain- google it to see if there is a video of it. you will see lots of gunk come out the nostril, repeat in the other nostril. it works! hope you feel better soon.

sometimes ppl are so dense. my mother would want me to drive her around when I was sick and I told her that I was on meds and I was not going to risk a dwi and I sid are you going to pay my fines if that happens. you don't need ppl like that in your life. next time tell her no and then when she argues with you tell what part of no don't you understand?
