Just popping in to let you guys know P & D will be postponed.

I spent last night in the ER. Two shots of morphine did nothing. Pain so bad I'm nauseous. And--self-important little prick of an ER doc sent me home with nothing except a lecture about how the ER was for acute cases and since none of my doctors would give me anything for pain, he wasn't going to.

Will spend the rest of this weekend avoiding suicide. It weighs on my mind constantly now. My left leg is a dead weight.

    Oh Rosie! I am so sorry! I hate that you are in pain, I swear if you went to a vet they would treat you better. I am thinking and praying for you to feel better.

    hey you....i wish you the best at avoiding suicide. i'd be super sad if you were dead.
    i spent last week doing the same thing, for entirely different reasons.
    and i'm alive!...i'm sure you will be too.
    i wish i had a stash of pain meds to send you.
    stupid doctors.

    Rosie hang in there! Can someone in your area get you to another ER or hospital?

    Hang in there.

    I hate ER docs--they sent my son home to sleep the night with a broken arm.

    Bless your heart,I am so sorry you are in such pain! I don't understand why they are not giving you something for it? Take care, I will be thinking of you.

    That just infuriates me! My husband has faced similar issues in ER. They seem to think you're a drug addict just because, oh, you're in screaming agony. And yet not to long ago I went in for some sort of nasty virus or food poisoning--non-stop vomiting and cramping--and they gave me Diluadid! For stomach cramps! That probably wouldn't have helped you if morphine didn't (interestingly, they didn't give morphine to my child after surgery--said it wasn't really effective!). Well, I didn't say anything--felt lousy enough to take whatever came my way. And boy did I feel better for a little while.

    Rosie, I'm so sorry you are in such pain. Even more sorry, or should I say angered, that you can't get decent treatment from the people who are supposed to provide it. You deserve better. Please hang in there and know that those of us in the blogosphere are sending our prayers and positive thoughts your way.

    I hope you're feeling better quickly. If you continue to feel low, just remember how many of us love you and read your work avidly.

    Your thought highly of!

    Can you get someone to take you to another hospital?

    To my mind you should go somewhere else. The quality of care you are getting stinks like old fish.

    I am so sorry you're in pain and getting no relief for it.

    I am thinking you should go outside of Tennessee for treatment. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, comes to mind.
