You're welcome. I understand, I myself deal with crippling pain. I became disabled after nearly paralyzing myself in back injury. I still have to watch it. I can't work no more but if it wasn't for my dr and the medicine I wouldn't walk:(

Wish I could give u my email address. I found a medicine that is like a miracle pill. I get in trouble if I put it on here. But I have a certain pill that has actually saved my life in my opinion. The pain is hard to live with as you know. I actually do well on it
