Here in the states it's getting really difficult to be treated by a pain management center. There are so many Doctors writing too many prescriptions for narcotics that police are cracking down on it. I've had major back surgery and moved from Nevada to Texas recently. Apparently there is a big problem in Texas because I'm unable to find a Doctor that will fill my pain medications. I'm not sure what to do because I suffer from chronic pain and really need to use pain medications.
My health has been declining and my DR recommended I start eating more fruits & vegetables. If I plant seeds from a survival seed bank, which ones will be more beneficial to my health? What are the benefits of eating kratom in your diet?

Why would we shout at you Tony, the one you went on wasn't right for you, all you can do is make a comment based on your experiences :facepalm: :facepalm:

I've recieved my pain clinic appointments which starts on 2nd June with the physio followed with a pre-programme assessment. I start the clinic on Thursday 9th June and then every Monday and Thursday for 8 weeks. :D :D

I have let work know so they can work around it. I work on Thursdays, but not Mondays, so I imagine I will work on Fridays instead. We'll see :lol: :lol: :lol:

Will keep in touch

Well.....I had my pre-progamme assessment meeting today as well as visiting the physio. She asked me to get on the floor and I had to tell her that I can't and neither could I get up once there. I cannot kneel down and my legs and arms are not strong enough to raise myself. So I am to use the bed. :D :D
I look forward to starting next Thursday, so I am now to wait for a telephone call to let me know if we are to start. It all depends on numbers, money and a place to do it. Watch this space :roll: :roll: :roll:
Since my heart condition started 7 years ago I hve been wary of swimming, because I loose my energy so quick (we feel that it may have been fibro causing it but were unaware then). The physio has said that they will help me back into the water :fingerscrossed: I hope so as I used to do 10 lengths a day.

Take care and keep pain free :fingerscrossed:

Hope you get the call to say it's going ahead Sheila :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: I would have thought with the physio and swimming/hydro it would be geared to your abilities/capabilities, taking into account other health factors/problems, with things altering and progressing based on how you are.

:fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: It helps you Sheila :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Many thanks. I've also got my :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: hoping to get the call as I have arranged with work to get the time off and I can't do the next one, which starts in September.

Take care and keep well xx
