    I had a major breakthrough today: thinking back to my general practitioner blithely offering to put me on the fentanyl patch, and I declined – because I knew that with my raging body temp swings, I would probably die from an overdose. Sounds like someone is not 101% sold on suicide, eh? Good for me. Cause I could’ve “eased on down the road” lickety-split that way. So. I now think if it gets really bad, like last year? I’ll just take my meds with me to the hospital and commit myself. See? Progress. Good.
