They doped me up to the point the doctor there at night is second guessing my doc's decision to try reducing my Oxy.

I got a ride back here to grab my robe and Mandy, so I don't have time to write any more tonight. I'll answer the other stuff later. Right now I got to go, and I sure hope they knock me out, I can't stand much more of this. And Mandy will claw MY eyes out.
Wolfe it will get better. Remember what you posted about the conversations you had with your doctor and shrink. A lot of the pain you are feeling is being created by your mind to feed your dependency on pain meds. We know some of the pain is real but your mind is exaggerating it right now to induce you take quantities of narcotics you actually may not need. You also told me that if your doctor decided you actually need them he would raise your dosage back up so you need not fear having this level of pain indefinitely. Just hang in there and remember you are getting better.

Do you feel up to doing some writing?

engineer151515 and 23skidoo those pictures are beautiful.

SR is right. It's tough and I wouldn't want to be in your shoes, but you can do this.

You have come so far. You have had a lot of help and support, but YOU are the one who is doing what you need to do to get better. You kicked the Fentanyl and you will kick this, too.

And I just got a telepathic message from Mandy. You didn't know we communicated, did you? Yeah, ever since she got mad at me a while back she's been tormenting me occasionally. Anyway, she said she doesn't mind having the stuffing squeezed out of her. In fact, she kind of likes being needed. But she said it will cost you a hefty share of all of the cookies and chocolates you might receive in the future. And catnip. LOTS of catnip.

I might squeeze the crap out of your hand, so you might want to take it back away from me. Mandy's trying to hide too.

I know that some of this pain right now is supposedly 'created' pain, but yesterday was way worse than what I should have felt from just a 20% reduction in my base med and an increase in my add-ons. Luckily today wasn't quite as bad, although it's still bad. I sure haven't been doing much that I haven't had to. Even my physical terrorist had to take it easy today. I could tell he wasn't happy about that. Truthfully I wish my doc would increase my Oxy back up, but I know he won't right away unless I'm completely debilitated from the pain. I'm just glad I didn't stay feeling sick all day from it, just part of the day.

And No, I don't feel up to writing. I'm also having problems with quoting messages for some reason, so I'll answer more posts tomorrow.

Sounds like you're numb because of the pain you're experiencing. I can understand that. I wouldn't feel like writing either if I was hurting that much. You're still going forward. This is one of those bumpy curves in the road. Just keep going, and know that we'll be here.

Hang on. I've got to changes hands......................


Okay, there we go.

I may have to join you for that tour. But you have to get better and come home to do that.

If you squeeze too hard I will just hit you over the head with my bat until you let go.

I hope whatever is causing this latest flare up in your pain will soon pass. I agree that you should not have felt this bad with the changes in dosages that you said. The Dilaudid injections should have made up for the reduction of Oxycontin. Take it easy and rest and do what your doctor thinks is best.

Not only are you behind in PM's but you are behind in answering email too. I hope you are able to start writing again soon. BobInTX's assignment awaits.

I do know the created pain thing exists but I honestly think they are underestimating your pain. There are some people that are so sure everyone is going to be addicted to pain killers and if you are not suffering, well then you're getting too much pain meds. I wish they would treat patients on an individual basis and listen more. I watched a friend suffer that was terminal crying in pain because they were afraid of giving him too much. Thank God he did not last long. I really like the people who hear you complain about being in pain and they say "Oh yeah, it's this weather." That tells me they have no clue. I just want to slap them. Ok, rant over. Oh, this one is for you.

We are your friends Sweetheart and you have had a rough go the past few days, of course you are forgiven. Please give Miss Mandy's ears a scratch and a cookie plus some chocolate should you have any.

Well heck LW I wish we were both in Ponte Verda watching the TPC Sawgrass, having a cold one. You don't really have to enjoy golf to enjoy the experience. You know I'm thinking about you.
