It's been a while since I've posted. I've gotten myself into trouble. I've been beating myself up a bit over it, but I'm moving forward again. Lesson learned.
For about a year now I've been fighting with ADOC's medical staff. I was diagnosed with systemic Lupus about a year ago. I have no idea what this is or what this means. I do know that my knees and fingers hurt. Sometimes the pain is bad. I've grieved my lack of medical care and repeatedly asked to receive pain relief. I've only received 6 days of some medication that did nothing for the pain.
Some time in May, I screwed up and chose to take a Morphine tablet, for my pain. I got UA'ed shortly after I took it. Dirty! I admitted I self-medicated. Days later I was asked to UA again. Having taken a 60 mg Morphine tablet I told the CO I'd still be dirty. I was again written up. Self admitting to possessing Morphine! Guilty, and disciplined again. I lost a month of good time and other disciplinary sanctions. I screwed up. I've passed a UA recently, am not taking other inmates meds any longer and am waiting for medical care. I'm still in pain, but I will continue to endure. I have exhausted my administrative remedies and will sue ADOC for their callous disregard fo my medical needs and my pain. Once again...I will win and the taxpayers money will be wasted on me. I only want medical care1 I'm willing and able to pay for my medical care but ADOC won't allow it.
