Thank you, Ed and Pinkeye for caring to write and being there, i wanted to answer-

Ed, my pain control Dr suddenly started complaining that i 'didn't have a dx' after treating my pain for over a year. i had already been through extensive testing and was referred to him by my PCP for pain control.
Now he says that he can't prescribe opioids anymore.
Opioids are all that would work - through previous trial and error by my PCP- who actually started me using oxycontin for pain because neurontin and elivil and other things wouldn't work.
i wonder if the DEA is giving him a hard time.

Pinkeye, The pain control Dr that i go to is at a pain clinic but there are others. i really do need a dx i think because of the restrictions that the government is putting on medicine that is abused. if only i can find a dr who is willing to find out why i have so much pain without always stopping at psychological reasons first as soon as they find out that i have PTSD and DID.
Since i applied for disability because of DID i've had so much trouble at ERs and now with getting medicine. Is there a connection, do you think? There's such a stigma against persons with a psych disability. i wish there were something that i could do about it. Maybe i should drop my case. i need the help because i can't work enough hours- i am disabled- but it's way worse to be treated so negatively by physicians.

i could try another pain clinic but i'm in so much trouble now i don't think that i can wait. The drs always talk to the previous drs. There's no way that i can find an objective dr., it seems. i'm afraid that it will be the same refusal to help me. i'll have to keep trying to find help. How can i get away from the psych problem always being looked at?

Thank you for any ideas,
kerria
