Hello everyone! The time has come to go to the pain clinic. It has been very hard for me to take this step because that means that there is no fixing my crushed ankle and nothing else can be done. I didn't think very highly of the pain clinic until I joined this website and learned more about it. You always think this is a place for people that are addicted to pain medication but I found out otherwise. What a little bit of knowledge can do. However, I am a little scared at what to expect when I go. If anyone has any advice they can give me I would appreciate it. One of my good friends works their and she got me in for next week. The wait time here to get in the pain clinic is approximately 3 months. I guess it is good to have connections. I want a baby so badly and now at age 35 this is my only option to be able to do that. I cannot be on the medication I am on and have a healthy baby. I hope they will be able to take me off the anti-depressent, sleeping pills, and pain medication. It is funny how it seems like everyone is on this combination. If you think about it, the chornic pain causes depression, the pain causes you not to be able to sleep, and the pain medication doesn't take all the pain away. I just pray one day that they will find help for all of us who suffer daily.
