Hi I am writing to you to beg for some help. I have met someone at the college I am attending who was there as a motivational speaker. He is in a wheelchair due to a gunshot wound 19 years ago, he is now 45 years old. He and I really connected on a spiritual level and he helped me through a terrible time in my life. I have since come to realize that he is on the verge of taking his own life due to these pains that he gets, sometimes in excess of 15 hours a day, screaming, yelling, crying, begging god to make it stop. I am terrified that he will commit suicide and therefore I have been trying to find a specialist that would maybe listen to him and understand what he is experiencing. So far from what I can tell his doctors simply want to prescribe pain meds that do little if anything at all for him. Please help me to find someone who can possibly direct me in the right direction towards finding a specialist. Insurance is not an issue fortunately he has very good insurance its just finding someone to go to. He lives in Wilmington NC and though it would be nice to find a local doctor or one in state at least, travel is not a problem. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my message.
