Hi guys, I signed up awhile ago but I've been to sick. In 1999 I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and 2000 diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  On March 7-8 of this year, I had surgeries 5-6. They left the 2 cysts on my spinal cord. I had a fusion from S1-T10 and an A-Lift at L5. I have another one I had to postpone until January that involves my fused C2-C7.  When the cysts developed all hell broke loose the worse symptoms starting 11 months ago. Pain levels were above 10+ not being able to move a finger without my whole body going into instant pain. I was still able to find information on how Robin Williams died and had my plans. I remember some white rhino I had and figured I should give it a try considering. It was like opening up a can of soda and hearing the effervescence. When I smoked and closed my eyes I could feel my pain dissipate and leave my body one pop at a time. The 60mg. of morphine I was taking every 8 hrs. I stopped. Then it was time to work on the Fentanyl. I was also on 100mcg. patches every 48 hrs. Well I've gotten myself down to 75 mcg. 3 months ago. So slowly but surely I'm getting my senses back but it's been hard. Being in Columbus, I don't have access. A caregiver I had liked taking more than giving which left me in a bad position to this day. I found Toledo which helps but it takes me a 7 hrs trip ea. time and I can't get back to easily. I found someone in Michigan how I've never met but had offered to help me but it's hard to send $350 to someone you've never met or never will meet. You just wonder if it will work and are afraid to lose the money. So I sit here waiting for my next episode hoping it never comes. Now I spend my time as an advocate and push to get help for the Vets and myself. I don't know where you all are at but I'm going to try and get back up to Toledo by Sept.. There's a whole lot more to this story but I get tired and then pissed with no meds., sorry. It's amazing what MMJ does to the nerves in my body and how I can feel them running from my head down to my feet. "Nothing that eliminates pain with no side affects and is non-addictive should be on schedule 1". The harm that this law does is devastating compared to the good. How many more people have to die needlessly?
