Hello family...Well, as you all know, I am basically being forced into a controlled detox on 6/25...Actiq is the only drug I have EVER used that even came close to providing me with relief...Now they say the goverment is stepping in & attempting to regulate it's use...Within the nest 3mos. all on it will have to see their doc every I have researched it, & I have a form of neuropathy caused(believe it or not)by the meds!! Yes it's true folks...If you research it a bit, you will find that extensive use of high dose shcedule II narcotics will cause your nerves & muscles to basically work against each other, ironically leaving you in more pain...So-the basic idea is to wean me down slow enough for my nerves/muscles to acclamate to lower & lower amounts of meds over a 14 day period...I have been assured that I will be sedated for the 1st 48hours to get me through the worst part of the detox, but they will still be giving me the fentanyl iv style...I dont know...maybe it will work...they said if after all is said & done & they are able to do an emg & trace the actual neuropathy(not the drug induced one)that maybe they will put me back on the lowest dose possible of actiq...I think it sounds like to much bullshit to go through again right!?!Why in Gods precious name would I want to EVER put myself through this shit again?>??Anyhow...Im just glad they are finally understanding that I am not just an account...a number or file...I am a human being in constant pain looking for a better way of life instead of living my life day to day eating dope & not being able to be a productive member of society...Isnt that what we all want? Thanks for listening guys...I would love to get some feedback on this & see what your guys take is on all of this...Much love & wishes for pain free days...

Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
