Becoming Unmanageable

     My pain is becoming unmanageable today.  The only drug I have available to me that helps at all is marijuana.  I really don’t want to use it as it precludes the possibility of driving, and thus of getting a workout in, which really is my only long-term chance at recovery from this diabetic neuropathy.

     I have both e-mailed my doctor and tried to schedule a telephone appointment through Group Health, thus far both are being ignored.

     I am glad my colonoscopy did not turn up colon cancer because if it is this difficult getting treatment for pain, I know if I had cancer I’d be dead for sure.
