I may be at perfect performance for three or four weeks and then unable to get out of bed for three or four days. I cant always afford to go to the doctor to get a work excuse. Not that it would matter because the several times I did go to the ER they cant diagnose what is wrong with me anyway. (Yet they can send me a bill that I cant afford to pay which is ruining my credit!) So the general diagnosis is, I am looking for a script for pain meds. Its so frustrating. Because first of all, I cant afford the pain meds! Second of all, I take tylenol, aleve, or ibuprofen for my pain and the docs tell me its not good for me at the doses I take. I UNDERSTAND THAT. But what am I supposed to do?
