Opioids for Chronic Pain – My new blog.
Just a quick post to let you know that I have finally accomplished a goal of mine which was to build another blog; this one dealing with Chronic pain and Opioids. Unless you live with chronic pain and rely on some form of opioid painkiller to make it possible for you to crawl out of bed in the morning, you have no idea how cruel and frightening we the sufferers find the new laws about opioid prescriptions. The intent of my blog is for fellow sufferers to share their fears, opinions, anger, and pain. I also hope that this blog will turn into an advocacy group, a group that will present our case to the “powers that be.” What boggles my mind is that the medical profession has no problem punishing 70-year-olds and older people who have legitimate chronic pain. They are punishing us because law enforcement does not have the ability to stop the trafficking and consumption of illegal drugs like fentanyl and Carfentanil. We are tarred with the same brush as all the drug pushers and drug dealers out there. (Carfentanil is an opioid that is used by veterinarians for very large animals like elephants. It is not for human use. It is approximately 100 times more toxic than fentanyl and 10,000 times more toxic than morphine. This means carfentanil can be deadly in extremely small amounts.)
