Lizardlady, I can definitely ask about the patch when I see him. Problem with that would be my insurance, tho... doubtful they would approve the patch when they also cover the pill. Traditional Medicare sucks, but when it's all you've got...

The first pill did knock it down from torture to just terribly uncomfortable... I'm gonna trake one with my meds tonight, and then I think I will try what you recommend. Mainly, I haven't been sleeping well at all because of the pain. Even with everything I take psych med wise, I'm only getting around 5 hrs, which is not enough for me, especially every night.

I'm here!

The great news is that they don't think it's cancerous. Yay! They did tests and I have to go back in Oct. so they can see how fast it's growing. If it's growing fast, they'll operate. They promised me that I would be asleep for any and all biopsies. That was a relief. They are sending me to my rhuemy for the facial swelling. They think it's the Sjogren's. They are also sending me to my eye specialist because one of my lids is drooping so badly it's impeding my vision.

I'm so sorry I didn't write sooner. I just sort of collapsed. You're right, Gus about being confined to a chair for a couple days. This is my first stop. I haven't been on the computer for a week.

I have to tell you that my depression, panic and anxiety are out of control. This whole thing knocked me off the cliff. I have no pdoc so I have no one to help me.

I do truly love you all. Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes. They mean so much to me.
