Ahh yes life is a journey and a strange one at that. When you spend too many hours banging your head against a wall just to change the tempo beating from within something snaps. AM I right?
So as a friend of mine once said laugh when you can, eat when you can, and sleep when you can. You never know when the next hit will come and you missed out.:-)
Now about contacting your legislatures. You don't have to be the most prolific or eloquent person in the world to write a letter. They don't really remember or take heed to what their aids write read for them anyway. The benefit of it is, is that they start to notice the topic of these letters once they get enough of them covering the same issues. Then they start to take notice that the people are interested in this certain issue. The issue being that health care sucks to put it gently. Doctors are afraid of giving out narcotics, or putting themselves on the line to help people with chronic pain. If you have found a doctor who is the exception then you are fortunate.
One more issue I would like to bring up, is there any shame in taking disability? I don't have it yet, but I would like to. I only get an average of 13-15 days of pain free living. That makes it difficult to hold down a job. I am not into starving to death, I guess I expect more in life.
Does anyone else find this true?
Well, I am new here, so I am covering many issues at once. Feel free to respond to any of them.
