Hi everyone...how are you all doing today? Me? Not so good. the weather here in Nashville is wet wet wet...and cool...so it makes my back, knee, and legs hurt more. I am still taking Methadone and Oxy IR 30 mg. I keep talking about changing meds but then I go to the Dr. and he keeps me on this same cocktail. It just doesn't work anymore/ and my next visit will be with a NP so no med changes this month...
Why is it that we have to keep going up and up on our meds? Or stay in pain? I hate to ask for more because it seems to stop working anyway. Oh well....the story of our lives.... After being on Methadone for so many years it just doesn't help and I don't want to go up because I already take 120 mg. a day....I mean, what's next? 200? Then what?
I am in such an ill mood today I am sorry for ranting....I just hate being in pain....DUH???
I hope I am the only one feeling this way today....I hope you are all feeling great...
I have been a spectator for so long..Now it's time to participate.......
