i'll try anything

I'm looking SERIOUSLY at acupuncture to help the pain I feel every day. I'll try ANY got-dam thing in the shape I'm in now.

I was very sick for the past few days. After enduring some terrible shit, I developed a slight appetite and I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. It was a can of "Chunky Chicken Soup" that I knew was in my cabinet. I opened the cabinet door and sure enough, there it was.

But I couldn't reach it. When I raised my right arm, the pain put me on my knees. I tried with my LEFT ARM. No fucking difference. I COULD NOT reach a can of soup in my own goddam cabinet.

Oh, don't get me wrong... I GOT that sumbitch! BY GAWD, I'll FIND a way... which involved, in this case, taking a got-dam broom handle, knocking the can off the shelf, watching it bounce offa my kitchen stove and then dent the tile on my kitchen floor when it finally hit the ground.

I picked it up, opened it, poured it into a bowl, heated it in my microwave and then... I ATE IT!!!! VICTORY!!!!

This is a TRUE story, yet it's complete bullshit in MY humble opinion.

I should not have to live this way. And any fucked-up "War on Drugs" or "For the Children" crap is flushing 100 years of civilized medicine down a politically-correct commode. Either drug me, fix me or KILL ME. That's what I WANT!!!! And I'll willingly accept whatever option offered to me right now.

Why can't I find a got-dam doctor who isn't afraid to do one of the three?

Oh... I forget... government....

I second the acupuncturist.. worked wonders for my chronic pain.

Find someone whose whole field of study is acupuncture however, don't go to a drive through chiropractor or nut like that.

My sessions run about two hours each.. and they work.

And it was nothing modern medicine could fix.

I hear ya on the perscription drug thing. Working as an EMT we are constantly being reminded that the youths of our nation are steeling granny's pain meds, crushing them, and snorting them. Every decent medication that comes out now to help people who are in chronic pain is abused in some way. I would think that we would spend more time and money on trying to educate our youth then spending the same time and money finding new ways to deny medications to people who actually need them.
