Covid may be messing with my DRG Trial

Posted by lorirenee1 @lorirenee1, May 15, 2020

Hi all, Last night, my pain doc's nurse called me to possibly schedule my DRG trial for next week, but that she was still working on some things. She said she would call me back today, and now, she just told me that Covid Guidelines make me too old to have my trial at this time, but was still "working on it," whatever that means. I am 68, and the cut off age in Illinois, due to Covid, is 65. Us older people are considered at risk, and most likely, I would imagine, docs don't want law suits. Meanwhile, the nurse says she is still calling me back today, and to keep hopeful. My pain doc still wants to do it, but the surgical wing follows the law. Meanwhile, the tears are coming like a turned on faucet. I just had a third of a marijuana gummy, because it seems to not only help pain, but mood. I could use that right now. It takes about an hour for the gummy to kick in. What a way to live. Pain, high, more pain, more marijuana……and now, I am too old for a trial under Covid law. I will keep everyone updated. This sucks. Lori Renee

@lioness exactly! I believe then the community took a part in disciplining our kids. The kids may have gotten punishment from neighbors or at the least the parents were told of the wrong doings. The parents then actually disciplined their kids. Kids today have NO RESPECT for their elders. Although we have made the advances in technology and science today, I truly believe life “in the old days” was a much happier time!
