I have severe degeneration of the spine with 24 hour pain and little relief.  Although I have never supported drug use in the past I would welcome some relief .....or death.  Doctors will not prescribe pain mediction stonger than Tylonal.   I would like releif.... any kind of releif  even death  but legal assisted suicide is not allowed.

So I wonder how many  people out there are caught in the same trap I am in, twenty four hour pain?   I'm in my late 80's but I may still be here for a while.  My 40 year old Doctor told me to "fight though the pain.... like I was a football player with a sprained ankle.  Isn't it  cruel to allow people  to suffer  If my dog were in pain I would find  him a medication stronger than Tylonal.
