Opioid Prescribing Has Not Changed

Bull-fucking-shit. I don’t know a single person who is being prescribed their medication, unless they exhausted other options first, most of which involved unnecessary surgeries. 😦 It’s an absolute travesty, what they have done to legitimate patients who are suffering.

The longer pain goes untreated, the sooner the body deteriorates internally. I have gone with no pain treatment for six years, despite being diagnosed with multiple pain disorders and permanent Central Nervous System damage. In that time, my body has shown stress and inflammation in my blood work. It has manifested problems that aren’t serious, yet my doctor jumped on one issue like a dog with a bone and made me INSANE for nearly six months straight, to the point where I was barely eating (I’m still not eating a whole hell of a lot, but that’s a different story, entirely.). I can only hope that things will change immensely, and/or that my treatment at another facility will be better.
