Hi Toni,I do not know anthing about FB sorry I wish I could help there,Have you looked into it on the internet?You talked about being very stiff in the morning when you wake up,I have been real stiff when I wake up and it seems to be since I have been on all the new meds with the pain management Dr. seems weird but who knows.I have an appointment with him on Tuesday and I will bring up the subject.The pain meds have been good as far as the pain except for the past week ,The pain has been a bit worse than the it was the 3 weeks prior.I don't know if it is because I am getting use to the dosage and it needs to be increased a little or what the problem is.I really hate to have the dosage increased because the meds make me very tired.I can't drive any distance at all without having the feeling that I am going to doze off and I am not willing to take that chance.I just got summones for jury duty I am suppose to go the week of the 27th.There is no way I would be able to serve on a trial,I would fall asleep .I am going to call and talk to them tomorrow and tell them what is going on I was summoned 6 months ago and they excused me but told me that I would be called upon again in 6 months and here it is.It is not that i don't want to do it I just do not feel up to doing it.I don't know how leaniant the court system is about things like this I guess I will find out when I call them tomorrow.I would think that the pain mangement Dr. would be able to write an excusal for me,But I really don't know.Well I hope you are feeling a little better today,I will talk to you soon."FRIENDS THAT STICK TOGETHER" PEGGY
