> I'm doing ok.... went back to work today.... am pretty beat. It's tough.... the toughest part is being told that some of the pain I'll have to live with the rest of my life. So many days I think I cant continue to live FOREVER in this pain, some days I deal with it. I'll tell you... I am so terrified of doctor's now.... It'll take something very severe for me to go back to one ever again.

No Kristi, so far the meds have not been work-
ing for me; and officially I am off the
research medicine that I was on; it was causing
way too many side effects and I just could not
tolerate them anymore. I see my private psych
doctor on Thursday. I am happy to be rid of
the research medicine, but I am disappointed
that it didn't work out. This weekend, I am
going to stay over night at my brother's house
in Los Angeles; I'll see him, my sister-in-law
and my 2 nieces (9 years and 6 years old). The
day before that my whole family will be getting
together in Los Angeles to see the musical
"The Lion King"; everybody says the musical is
supposed to be quite good. My brain has been
going through a lot of adjustments with
medications and all, but I am sure that I will
enjoy the weekend. I also have a birthday
coming up and I will be celebrating that
as well on November 17th; I will be 50 years
old, a milestone I suppose.
I am sorry to hear that some of your physical
pain will now be chronic in nature; that's a
bummer. How bad will this chronic, ongoing
pain be? I have been meeting so many people
that are coping with long-term, chronic pain;
many have used illicit drugs as part of their
coping scheme, and that has not worked for them.
I am glad to hear, though, that you are now
strong enough to go back to work; you know,
you are indeed a very strong woman; that is
very clear to me.
I earned some pretty good money from being in
this reseach study and I took it and invested it
in a bio-reasearch pharmeceutical company, a
company where I have already made a few thousand
dollars on. I have a lot of fun investing my
money in stocks and other undertakings that I
feel are safe. Being in this research study
was very, very rough on me, but it was nice
to have gotten paid some money for it, don't
Well, I have going to sign off for now; it
was nice chatting with you. We'll have to do
this again sometime, my dear. Until then,
I wish you the best.
See you later, Kristi
