ware of. While I can only comment from an N=1, and I have found the first line of defense more than sufficient in pain control. That is not to say that there are not periods of discomfort which were delt with immediately but I have become aware of the smaller up and downs combined with the steady loss of function of the overall process. I have tried to graphically represent what I'm experiencing to give some understanding of the process from my perspective. Lots of ups and downs overlaid on a steady decline of bodily decline. I have found that chocolate cake does make for for a good intervention and is perhaps related to the 6 gallons a month of chocolate ice cream i was eating. i snarfed down a big piece last that passed magically before me last night and found the energy to get this piece written.
So, i leave you tonight with a mouth full of chocolate crumbs and hope everyone sleeps well.
