    I have been a (Belgian) chocolatier for 7 years. Stop by my house, across from the Chapala American Legion (117, Morelos), and I will give you a small chocolate bar to try (dark or milk or white). There is the small chance that you might like it. Just dont tell anybody. Rony

    The consulate can do everything and they are fast, friendly, professional and efficient. If you are in Mexico you are supposed to call the consulate, not the U.S.

    Our neighbor informed us that yesterday a group of ladies told her that there is a rumor that La Mision is closing. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Thanks to our ever increasing # of clients we are experiencing greater results then a year ago and so thank you one and all for your support. We are looking forward to a great future and have plans to make the restaurant even better.

    You like your plan, you keep it, you like your doc, you keep him - and save $2500 a year. You like your cartel, you keep them.

    Surely you jest, Giltner68, as the US administration has assured us many times that there is NO CARTEL VIOLENCE spillover in the US...

    Bob also later posted that he found out the letter needs to be in Spanish. He asked if anyone could translate it for him since his Spanish was not up to it. Later he thanked Harry B. for translating for him. So thanks to Harry for helping out. It really does take a village!

    Puerto Hierro said that they would take my insurance and then held me until I paid in cash - at such a point you are thinking home not lawyer. I'll just never again recommend that institution.

    I am so sorry to hear about your condition. My heart genuinely goes out to you during such a difficult time. Right now, Mexico has a serious problem with a shortage/lack of certain controlled substances and opiates (methadone, ketamine and others that require a certain ingredient that cannot be obtained for whatever reason.) The pharmacists are frustrated as well, and have no idea when those meds will become available. However, other opiates (such as oxycontin) are available. Every drug works differently on every person, so I hope one can be found for you. May I offer my suggestions based on personal experience: Sam Thelin: he is not a pain management specialist and has absolutely no meaningful training in that area. He is capable of administering an IV with morphine, but is not capable of avoiding elementary errors as he has made catastrophic error(s) in the past with a patient by prescribing conflicting opiates which sent that patient to hell. Last I heard, he does have a license to prescribe opiates. Proceed with caution. Dr Maytorena: Very well trained and compassionate, but does NOT have the license to prescribe opiates. He studies a lot in how to manage pain and can prescribe non-controlled substances and could be worth speaking to. Dr. Garcia at Maskaras: he is an internist and not a pain specialist, but has been a physician for several decades and is quite compassionate; he has a license to prescribe controlled substances and appear to have a good foundation, and knows better than to mix certain opiates. He is a compassionate person and so far I have been very happy with his knowledge and service (knowing he is not a pain specialist, but is in town which makes things convenient.) The Lakeside pain management doc is one that comes to town once a week and while I don't know much about her training, she does have the license to prescribe opiates, but demonstrated to be very unreliable (canceling appts w/no notice to a patient, thus leaving the patient out of meds.) Dr Lastra is very compassionate and I know he does home visits. However, last I heard he does NOT have the license to legally prescribe opiates. His method is to buy them himself and sell them to you at a markup. That is not legal (although given your situation, that might not be something you understandably care about right now). Maybe he has a license now, but I would ask him first, as w/o a valid prescription on your person, you could get into some trouble, which is the last thing you need. Again, I'm so very sorry you find yourself in the position you are in. Please contact Dr. Garcia at Maskaras. He has the license, compassion, and there is always a doc on call there. There does not appear to be a decent pain management specialist located here in Ajijic w/the license to prescribe controlled substances, but I hope you can find a doc knowledgeable (and legal) to assist you. A lot will depend on what you need, such as just pills you can take on your own right now, or someone to come to your home and administer an IV? And of course your needs may change over time. I wish you good luck in finding someone that can assist you.
