Hi guys sorry about not posting but have been wicked busy, not sure if everyone knows but a year and 2 months ago i went on Cannabis, i take 1 eyedropper full 3 times aday and the pain caps twice a day, using that i got rid of 22 other meds they had me on for CVS and my attacks have gone from 5 attacks a weeek down to 1 attack a week, had a BAD attack in Feb and i pinched 3 nerves in my neck at the C-4 level so haven't been able to use my right arm and THANK GOD for the cannabis pain caps and wax, nerve pain is AWEFULL  also my hosp.ER visits have dropped , i went normally 8 to 12 times a year for emergency IV meds or torn muscles, i have only gone twice in 15 months, BUT in the end of June i had a heart attack, i was lucky as no damage to the heart  bad news is i can't stop taking one of the meds they put me on for heart and the heart doc doubts if the spine doc will do the surgery till Dec because one of the heart meds i can't stop taking for 6 months which means Dec,  not so sure i can handle the pain that long, Cannabis works GREAT  BUT  it cost ALOT and being a 100% disabled Veteran i don't make alot and insurance doesn't cover it, even though its a med, so i buy what i can but can't use it every day, BUT other than that  doing AWESOME sorry i haven't been on, hope EVERONE IS DOING AWESOME !!!!!!
Remember, We are The FEW,, The PROUD,, The PUKERS !!!!!  SO PUKE WITH PRIDE !!!!
Heave Hooooooooooo

Thanks for the check in.  I am still breathing as well.  Got messed up hard by security again, for walking this time.  They did a number on me this time though, no one to write it up I guess.  I couldn't move and have an attack, ERed when I could.  Still can't really do anything.  have to get rent out and get food today so I am forced to do that.  I know what it is like to be crushed until you pass out.  And I was out of my body twice.  Then I woke up in the back room of security with no medical personel watching me after they shot me up with something that knocked me out.  While making up a lie for what happened while I was in 4 point restraints, I got to my phone and called 911 dispatch to let them know I was a patient who just got jumped by untrained security (never told me to do anything. Not one order, just nails in my arm and a beating).  They sent police who were...  I was on the floor when this happened admitted by my doc, when they moved me to the ER.  Second the police left and I asked to use the bathroom, 4 points again.  Got to my phone, security grabs it this time (911 hang up with them yelling and cursing at me this time, not a good look for them) police are still ... to me.  End up in ER when I can move after puking in my bed and having all kinds of issues (they pulled at my port and messed up my neck and back hard I know your pain), ER doc is someone who knows I wouldnt fight security.  She is surprised they brought me from the floor to the ER like that.  My docs covering doc comes in and fires me as a patient...(docs on vaca).  I ask if he wants my side of things he says no.  I ask if my doc knows, he says "it doesn't matter".  And a care plan I worked hard to get last time security beat me up on camera for showing up to the hospital, is now destroyed because a RN called security because she treats me like I work at the hospital under her because she sees me so much and not like a patient (and did not respect the hospital's side of the, no calling security on me because they beat me, I'm not a threat, and it's BS.

I feel you.  Just keep swimming.
