Heart Brenda!

Hopefully that was not a "so long" type "goodbye?" We like having you here!

Nah, daffy brain stuff only happens...............

to all of us who have experienced the meds you now know.

Yeah, I run off at the tongue. Write treatise length responses which become a labor to read.

So, today, this is a new method of writing........

Brief!

ha, ha, ha,
See? My brain has reins!
Prayin all will work to the best for you in all things with new Doc, with weaning off of the meds and Such,
Merry Christmas,
Mark56

Not sure that is possible. But to know you is to love you....and eventually we all get the point.

Mark 56,
The goodbye followed by a. ? just meant I wasn't even sure if my post was over or not. Cause I am so fuzzed out by my meds! This group is so helpful and caring and I'm so pleased to have found such a great group!

You have become part of a very caring group. I am sure there are times you will be of help to someone on NT as well. In the meantime, we look forward to hearing how you are coming along.

I, myself, take 60 mg's Oxcontin every six hours, and Percocet for breakthru pain. Don't be concerned about being fuzzed out. Pain is our common denominator.

Pain brings us commonly before grace
meds are a means to handle the agony

I'm not even considering him for the surgery due to time constraints. The replacement Dr fit me into his busy schedule and insurance already approved surgery thru his practice.

I do want my old Dr to help me slowly get weaned off all or some of my pain meds. I'm currently on very high doses of methadone, amitryptilene, lyrica and cymbalta just to try to handle pain, plus 4 advil every 4 hrs. And most evenings I am still in horrible aching, stabbing, cramping, burning pain.

I have to keep my feet elevated at all times or the pain starts earlier and stronger. My feet turn purple when they dangle and color = pain.

Oops, I pulled a "Mark56" aka "Brenda Ingram" by going into much more detail than is required!! LOL!! Mark, ive done that all my life and always believed that this "additional info " helped me become an excellent communicator. Unfortunately, my high doses of meds have really messed with my mental acuity and I repeat myself then I forget everything! Does this happen to anyone else?

What were we dikscussing? Oh yeah. I cant spell. I repeat myself endlessly, going over the same material over and over. I am redundant. Did I mention I forget everything?

Ok I'm done playing. Or am I? I cant make simple decisions.

Goodbye?
I LOVE YOU?
AND YES IT HAPPENS TO THIS
PERSON MORE TIMES THAN I
WOULD LIKE
so i tell my adult children
do not count on me remembering
much after my 3:00 dose
now it's not like the following
day it is lost forever someone
must remind me what in several
words and it all comes back
thank you for the humor you put into it
i myself am a hard nut to crack
it is the best medicine for me
i speak for myself

you have the only best day ever

someone who cares

p.s. my hands loose color
and are a unusual white
and a purple under color
my hands have changed
in texture
