Thank you so much Dani. (((((((((((hugs))))))))) for you too. I sure hope that script comes tomorrow. It it doesn't, they're hearing from me. i'm going to make an appointment to see my dr. to find out exactly is on the ct and mris. I wish i would have done it today when I was talkiing to her, but i was too tired. I hope I can remember through all this to call her Monday if she doesn't call me first. I'm going to really complain about this. This is just not right. None of us chronic pain patients should have to go thru this. I'm just miserable. I've been taking half my Seroquel that i've been taking for sleep, but tonight I took a whole one. I'm allowed three, so don't worry, I'm not overmedicating. I'm prescribed three. I sure hope it helps me to sleep. I went to bed between 3:30am and 4:00 am and didn't get to sleep until after 7 sometime. Then the nurse called between 12:30pm and 1pm. That's all the sleep I got, and it was fitful sleep part of the time. I wonder if that's caused by the withdrawls. Well, i'll go for now. I'll let you all know if I get the script or not. If I don't, you'll hear a reall mad woman on here. I promise i won't curse, but you know what I mean. I sure do appreciate all your support. I couldn't get thru this without you guys and my husband. I hope you're all having a low pain night. Everyone take care.
love and hugs
ps. my husband got a big back pay from his SSI. We were very surprised when he got the letter. I'm going to order me a TENS unit. i had a really small one and I misplaced it when we moved back in Sept. of last year.
