Regular PCP are becoming more & more reluctant to prescribe pain killers & it is due to the hassel of it all due to government & war on drugs.
Alot of people make it impossible for those really & truly suffering in chronic pain.
I have a hard time getting my ambien due to insurance arguing that it is not medication to help me live....Now they have no problem for my thyroid medicationi because I need it to live. (Don't have a thyroid).
My regular dr. is only allowed to give 2 refills & then he has to re fill out the paperwork again for another 2 refills.
I mean I understand the whole drug addiction to pain killers & stuff, but you will find more PCP sending their patients to Pain Centers.
I refuse to go that route so I am good on Advil/Ibuprofen 800.
I have more health issues, but who doesn't...So as long as I am still above ground can't complain...View Thread
My diet depends on weather I am around peopel or not. During the work week i snack maybe 2 times a day at work; deli meat, peanut/crackers, pudding cups, or applesauce, or popcorn. I am not a breakfast eater, nor do I eat a real lunch. Sometimes I don't get hungry at work so will wait until dinner to eat something. Now if I am home alone for the evening i won't bother with making dinner. Sometimes I won't eat, or I will eat a snack (like up above). I hate eating alone....
Now weekends, it depends on weather I am alone or not. I won't usually eat but snack once a day during the weekend, if hubby is home than we usually make a big brunch or early dinner.
I just can't eat when alone i don't know why, i just can't.View Thread
