Well I’m headed to my old pain management doctor today. I scheduled this appointment last month and I going in with all my pain charts and other information about the pain and my inability to cope. Is it asking too much to want to live at a level say, 5 or 6 instead of 8, 9, or 10? Sometimes it’s even more than that! I haven’t slept all night, I’ve thrown up most of the night due to the pain and I’m exhausted. I’m just trying to prepare myself for the frustration. Even with the pain charts I wonder if they will take the time to read them and when they talk to me it’s like I don’t have diagnosed issues that cause intense pain. Man such arrogance! Grrr...  Well, off I go, I want to go a little early and say hi to the cops! (No, not really!)

Catz4, I just saw this now. I hope and pray that the doctors take you seriously and do something to help you find appropriate pain management. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to deal with people who just don't seem to care that much. As hard as it is, you have to stand up for your rights and let them know they can't bully or ignore you any longer.

I hope it goes well...and I'm sorry that you had such a rough night leading up to this day.

You're doing all your can on your end of things, and at least you have started plans for finding other pm options. One thing I'm glad is despite it all, you've kept your sense of humor! Somedays - especially with the night you had - that's not an easy thing to do!

Will be looking for your post later to let us know how it went.
