and limitations. so here's another good one.
Tuesday night I had run out of my break through meds. I had a drs appointment on Wednesday but after struggling with a weaning fentynl patch (day three syndrome)
I finally broke down and called my dr. at about 8:00 p.m. cause of my neck pain and feeling like my left arm was being pulled from its socket. I had tried to contol the pain with an additional muscle relaxants. No luck. So my doc called in an RX for 10 norco since I would be seeing him the next day.
As some of you know from chats ... My wife and 15 y/o had just moved out this past weekend, the house is in foreclosure and things are quickly getting dicery by the day. I had seen my counseler on Monday and was in a rather blue mood in general. So off I went to the 24 hour pharmacy ... of course some ding a ling was tailgating me in the left lane so even though I needed to make a left I moved over to the right lane to let them pass ... went over a slight blind hill .... locked up my brake and BAMB .... rear-ended a K9 police car! I was boarded and taken to the local yokle hospital. They started an IV what I believe they said was fentynl but by the looks of it today ... they just blew the vein and infiltrated into the surrounding tissue. I was upset, in pain and squirmy .... the officers and the dog were unharmed.
They wanted to do a Cat scan but because I had just had one 3 weeks earlier .... and wasn't getting any pain relief ... I asked to be released AMA (against medical advice) .... at which time I was taken back to the cop shop for about two hours ..... after their questioning one of the nice officers drove me to the pharmacy to pick up my pain meds.
Yesterday I went to the police station to get my license, insurance, and citation for ??? (nuttin).... after getting my attorny to call them today I went to the police station and got my license, insurance, and a citation for "failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident" ... after getting a rental car I went to see my car which I believe will be totaled. My air bag didn't deploy.
I saw my doc yesterday ... got my Fentynl increased by 50 mcg/hr .... total now 150 mcg/hr ... plus percocet for break through. I guess tomorrow I will call my SSD attorney and inform him of my new disability .... "failure to reduce speed" I also feel like returning to the hospital to show them the size of my infiltrate and maybe get that cat scan.
This morning I did have new and "exciting"? neck pain .... but had plenty of pain meds to handle it. One of my friends suggests that I definately go to the ER to document what all has happened. I think It will all be blown off as pre-exsisting conditions .... sorry for the "saga" but my life is a country western song .... a bad one at that.
Please refrain from bashing about driving on meds .... I have read those threads and agree ... but in this case I had little choice. Beside the neck pain, my tongue is numb ... thoughts??? prayers?? jokes to cheer me up??
My life is just too much fun!
