I am end-of-life and cannot manage my pain.
My state doesn't provide narcotics for anyone and it will cause me to have a shorter life.
How does addiction compare to your illness?
Edit: rereading my question I have to say that it comes across as condescending and dismissive of the disease that is addiction. I know about addiction and have cared for several people fighting the disease.
I'm just not as eloquent as I once was and I'm sorry for my lack of tact.

I appreciate the suggestion but I'm choosing to not go to hospice, ever.
I'm poor and prefer to pass on alone.
I wouldn't be a good fit for hospice as I am painfully aware of the toll on hospice nurses and I'd probably try and downplay how I'm feeling.
On the flip side, I can be an arsehole when the pain is too much, and just don't want to hurt anyone.
I didn't know that people could hospice for years, and hopefully another redd.itor will benefit from this!

Toradal is my favorite! Unfortunately, there wasn't a way for prescribing the medication and is only administered in-office by a nurse or doctor.
The pill form isn't an option as it felt like acid in my stomach.
But I wish!

I will try again as I asked several years ago.
Hopefully the restrictions have been amended!
