... truly understand where I'm coming from. I've been crippled with excruciating pain since 1991after 4 fusions and was at death's door six years ago. Actiq was prescribed and it truly saved my life. As you all know, it is terribly expensive and my insurance refuses to pay for it now. I've been on all other meds and morphine pumps with terrible results. I can't imagine going back to 80 pounds with pain so intense, I will surely end my existence because it is too much to bare. As you all know where I'm cooking from, I trust in your comments. Prayers and blessings to you all
