I know I rarely post but I read everyone’s topics every day and I am grateful for a place to come when going at it alone is just too much to handle
Life has been crazy, was away from home for 1.5 weeks (First in Az to watch my Grandpa get a Silver Star and then to MI for a work trip) and I got lucky and things were within the tolerable range of pain (is it sad that I think a 6 or a 7 is good?) but now that I am home my body seems to be making up for lost time and I am in a world of hurt. To make it worse I have to get a lower GI endoscopy on Thursday and the prep is trying to kill me!!!
I am heading to the pain doc today in order to get off the Nucynta...this stuff just sucks. It either leaves me kite high with a tummy and headache or does nothing...Lets all hope he is willing to try something else! I cannot handle life without something for breakthrough pain...
I wanted to check in, say hi and let everyone I appreciate them for all they do.
If I can ever help in any way let me know. I am an herbalist who is really good at finding tricks and tips to help out with life’s little problems...

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
