Just thinking ...if its this hard in the "Land of the free" to get proper pain mgmt & treatment, what's it like in Communist Nations?!
btw - today I'm actually feeling better bc I took extra prednisone (with permission) !
amazing what just 5 Mg more can do to make me feel better! I even went out & picked up kids fro school since it's subzero temps in the Dakotas! And I did so well I decided to go by pharmacy & pick up my meds AND the nice cashier was there (the only one not to judge me!) ...Made my day to have someone nice!
Today is turning out better than anticipated!
