Hi you all. I got my pain meds yesterday at the pharmacy. I'm so relieved. I will be calling a week ahead of time next month like I did with my previous dr to get them filled. I'm hoping that works and that this doesn't happen again.

I hope you're all having a low pain evening. Take care.

love and hugs
Loretta

I'm glad you got your medicines and hope nothing like this ever happens
again, so if it means keeping on top of it, well then do just that...
Many many well wishes....

Hi Loretta, I am so happy for you, this running out of the medications we need is such a painfully sad time. Hopefully you won't have that problem again.
Take care
