hi all. I hope everyone is well. I'm sorry for posting this, I just needed to vent my frustration. About 2 /2 weeks ago, I went to my dr. at my health center on campus. we talked about me starting neurotin, and that it has seemed to be helping my back. he also prescribed me 30 hydrocodone for severe pain. I understand this can be addicting, but really it seems that if I take that and my neurotin, I have little if no pain, and can function easier. well, I have been trying not to take it to often, but have been in quite a bit of pain during the day when I am student teaching. I called the dr. today to let him know I was taking more than I had thought i would need to begin with, and was wondering if I could get a refill. I had no response. My mom is starting to come off like she thinks I'm using them to "get high" and tells me to use my tens unit. that thing is just a pain in the ass. then she tells me to stretch ugh, cant anyone just accept the fact that I may NEED these meds!? anyway, thats all for now. I'm sorry for complaining.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
