making a change

So today the pain doc was much nicer.

He gave me a script for Methadone, which, it turns out, isn't stocked in that dosage at any of the pharmacies in the town we usually go to for our drugs. I had to go 16 miles in the other direction to get it. I started it this afternoon and the only bad effect so far that I notice is insomnia, which I can live with.

The pain is still there but the level is less and I know it takes this drug a while to get busy so I'll hang in there. The hardest thing right now is getting on schedule and remembering not to take any Vicodin with it.

I go back next Friday to be re-evaluated to see if the med is working.

I'm hoping the news is good.
