Well it has been a little over a year since my last post. It turns out I have a lot more going on than what was thought at first. Apparently I have lupus which has been the cause of all my problems like the unexplained joint pain and fever and overall feeling as if I have the flu every couple of months or so. Apparently the lupus has affected the peripheral nerves in my head and face. I fear that it has been so many years before a proper diagnosis that it is too late and irreparable damage is done. I experimented more with the kratom and found the right dose. It was a huge help. Unfortunately it has now been banned in Alabama so that option is taken away. I hate taking pain medications. I swore I would never get back on the long acting morphine again. It made me have terrible mood swings and rages. It was a roller coaster of lows and highs with the medicine kicking in and wearing off. I have no idea what I will do next.
