First, my hearts are and have been with you folks, new and/or former ie. old timers like myself. My computer keeps going on the blink as does my spine and I think each of you from there knows the rest of the same old story. BUT I do bid my howdy with a caveat.....fairly recently my pain et al took on a life of its own and it was discovered through the sleep clinic I have acute obstructive sleep apnea; well, lo and behold. My now demonic caregiver(s), never knowing a cotton-pickin thing about my condition despite my efforts to tell them.....rush in the very next day I was put on C-pak etal. and up and have me jerked up out of bed and off to the hospital on a "supposed OD" of morphine! The story is in here somewhere.. Lesson. Write just what you are taking, the amounts et al.and if necessary sleep with it taped to your a - - ! I have had more hell than a little bit. Also if you have any spinal problems (mine are serious) write that down also. I have been going through a hell like you could only imagine. Even my in-house "caregiver" daughter did not know the magnitude of degeneration of the spinal stenosis and I was literally thrown all over the room to get me out...no backboard nada! It goes on and on. And now the doc, who had ordered a special power chair that could be added onto as my condition worsened, is holding up signing off on the medical necessity until I have this daughter removed from my home! This custom ordered chair sits are the med supply until I get this "caregiver" out. I did comply and get a criminal trespass against my older daughter and hubby but this doc means business. Anyone who knows me knows what I think of the feds getting into my business! Adult caseworkers have been here, I have been there....yada-yada. My family is not happy with me to say the least and I feel quite sure by Monday they will see to it I have no doc. There are also none others in this county who take medicare or medicaid patients; now isn't that lovely! And I thought I had problems 3-years ago when I came to this site! I am not one to "sue" but this business of worsening my back condition (I wear at all time a medic alert) may force me into xseeking an attorney's opinion concerning the handling by the EMS. Later friends. CactusLil'
