Just finished making 10 lbs of meatloaf and 24 breakfast burrito's.....and I'm not dead yet lol. I think my Cymbalta is working, what a difference 10mg makes. Now I have a different concern. Tomorrow morning is my first visit to the pain research study. Zippy's vet bills are $1200 and counting so I really need the fat check at the end of the study. But what if I'm not having pain like today? Please don't be offended, I know so many of you are suffering, and I usually am too (I just happen to be having a rare pain-free day). I'm probably freaking out over nothing, I get anxious before any Dr visit. It would just really suck if they hooked me up to the old MRI and didn't see any evidence of pain and eliminated me from the study.
