Tina,…you and I have very similar Dr's!….. After a good long serious talk about
two months or so ago, and I mean a serious talk!... he finally has loosened up a bit and we are now on the hunt for a decent solution for my Chronic Pain.
I think your approach was right on!…first giving her professional "respect"
….and then "sensibly"
pleading your case and backing it up with facts. One other thing I think helps, is to be a bit educated regarding pain med's and doses, and having a decent understanding or your long term condition. I have gotten to know you quite well over the last few years, and I have to say that I admire your knowledge in both areas.
So today, you gained a little ground, and left yourself some hope for the future,….. and that my dear friend!….I call a good day!
I hope you get some much needed rest in the coming nights….and hope the nasal spray is effective for you!
Take care, and enjoy your victory!
