Glad to hear that you are feeling better. You should mark your calendar on your computer and have the computer to send you a reminder to schedule a drs appt for next month's medication. That way you will avoid anymore problems getting your medications on time.

I do this on all drs appts and have it set to send me a reminder the day before and it helps me keep track of my appts. Take care.

Thanks Ladies. I don't know how to set the computer to give me reminders. I have a calendar that I use to remind me of my appointments. I write everything that i need to remember on that calendar. I even write the time that medicaid transportation is going to pick me up for my appointments. I do plan to call Monday and see if I can talk to one of the nurses and see about getting monthly appointments around the time that i need refills on my pain meds so that I can get those scripts in my hands. I don't care if it's with my dr. or the nurse practioner. Just so I have a way to get those in my hands. This is never going to happen again if i can help it.

love and hugs

Loretta i am so very glad you are getting better, i will never in my life forget my first and last and only time i decided to stop taking the meds being given at that time i was only taking vicoden es. i really felt like i was going to die and actually wished (but not really) that i would no one can explain just how awful withdrawal is. i had no idea, by the time it was basically over 1 month had gone by, although i still had some withdrawal syptoms, it became very clear to me that my pain was sooooo real, i was not a hypocondriac, or lazy, or any of the other things my mother kept telling me i was.  i knew then (and this was like in 1996) that i began to tune her out, unfortunatley it wasnt that easy. now with your help and many others it is gone never to be revisited. sorry it seems i have made this about myself.  so back to you again i am so happy for you and am hoping this is a great beginning of a much better life for you without having to deal with the blinding pain we all experience. good job stay with it and many blessings to you. hoping you have very low pain days, love and soft hugs.

Thanks Nini. I won't ever forget what the withdrawls and excruciating pain was like. I'm glad that you have made peace with what your mom did in the past. Unfortunately, today hasn't been as good. Up until today, I was doing pretty well with the pain, but today it has been raining and my back has been screaming at me. I've heard and read that it's the barometric pressure that causes the pain. I don't doubt it at all. I'll be glad when this front goes thru and the pain gets better. It's really hard to deal with. I hope you're having a low pain day. You take care.

love and hugs

Hi Loretta! Wanted to say again that I'm really happy that you're doing better. Are you going to be able to make an appt. every month so you can make sure to have your medicine? I'm glad that what you went through is over!

Lots of hugs,

Flower

Thank you Flower. I don't know if i will be able to make a monthly appointment or not since my pc writes the scripts for my pain meds, but i'm surely going to try.
