      Hey Tracy! As far as finding a physician goes, Claude answered that
      question right. Doctors can only prescribe for pain right now, not
      addiction. Plus my dose is a little bit high also.And I live right
      off the Gulf of Mexico about 60 miles from Mobile,Ala. We didn't stay
      there but went about 35 miles to the west and north of I-10. It
      wasn't bad there at all but we were as ready as we were gonna get. I
      hate them hurricanes! I'm so glad I'm not in Florida. I have been
      thru several right there at my home, including the killer hurricane
      Camille in 1969, and it is scary as hell! We will always evacuate if
      it is called for. Yea, I wish I could find a place closer to dose but
      for now I really like where I'm at at TTC. Although I wish the doctor
      would give bigger increases when ya need one. When you're on a high
      dose you just can't feel a 10mg. difference, ya know? I wrote him a
      great letter and included something I got from Dr. Payte about giving
      increases to people whose dose is over 150mgs. but I think it got
      lost in the mail. I will try again soon. But anyway, I will be there
      on October 21st, a Thursday, at 5 am. I always get a room at the Park
      Inn on 43rd and 290 west, when I get there on Wednesday evening about
      9pm. I'm heading to work now so catch ya'll later!! Oats

      nationwide, not just here in Texas.

      large I mean over 100 mg/day)?

      If you did go through it, how was it? Did you go to a shelter? or
      flee back to Texas? I hope that you and yours are okay and did not
      suffer any injury or loss of property.
