Methadone and doctors

Okay I've been on methadone for 7 years....it started at a rehab clinic because I was so  immune to Lortabs that I could take 20-30 a day and get no relief from chronic back pain. I had surgery for this in 1992 from an injury as a nurse. Now I begged, borrowed, and stole to stay out of pain until I got fed up with it and went to rehab. They noticed that my pain was for real and started me on methadone which works great.I couldnt find a Dr to prescribe it so I ended up at a meth clinic that I spent thousands at. This was in Arizona. We moved to Alabama and I found a Dr to prescribe it until we had a falling out about a 6 hour wait in his waiting room. I was on 130 mg at the clinic I dropped myself to 40 and by taking the pill and not liquid it lasted longer so dummy me told him I could make it on 20mg a day. So I found another Dr. and after awhile my discs are disintegrating and I need it upped to 3 times a day....he said no "look what happened to Micheal Jackson" . I started using his partner and he wrote the script for 2-3 times a day as needed but only gave me 70 pills. Well it has turned cold and rained all month so I took it 3 times a day more often. Went back to get another script...No its too early....I showed him that he only gave me 70 instead of 90 and that I was out and will be for 5 days. would not talk to me anymore about it. So I'm writing this because I will probably be dead in 5 days from withdrawals. It is Dr Jarrod Speer, Childersburg, AL. I told his nurse about the mistake and she said she didnt care if I got it or not. She has curly black hair and skinny and was a rude _itch.  The cops wonder why people turn to the streets! I would but I dont know anyone on the "streets". Any ideas?
