AMEN -- but if you look and act anywhere near reasonably intelligent, and are willing to read and "do research", most university teaching centers will find someone who is willing to hear your our and cooperate

"In my situation, I had tried so many meds and so many combinations that my doc one day just said in frustration - does ANYTHING make you feel better - and that's when I told her that opiates made me feel much better - even close to "normal." Of course she didn't prescribe an opiate on the spot - she did some research and talked a lot with her colleagues about it before even giving it a trial run."
