Hi,

I just started a petition on Care2: Demand that chronic pain sufferers get their medications now!!. I'm hoping that if enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Right now I've got 10 signatures " will you help me collect more by adding your name, and then sharing it with others?

Here's a link to the petition: thepetitionsite.com/356/711/114/demand-that-chronic-pain-suffers-get-their-medications-now/?z00m=21004080

If there's anyone you know who might be able to help me spread the word, please let me know. Thanks so much -- I really appreciate your help!

Hi valerie,

Thank you for taking the time out to start a petition about this. For those who don't understand the battle that chronic pain sufferers are going through, there's a lot that has to be taken into account with things the way they are.

Lately, the focus of the media has been on addicts and how to impede their access to the same controlled substances that legitimate patients require for relief. The problem this creates is that everyone filling their Rx is now a suspicious candidate for being an addict, making prescribers less lenient and pharmacies more strict about filling what your doctor already gave you.

At some point though, we have to draw a line. This is where your signatures come into play.

Thank you all for showing your support!

I was so impressed with your petition. I followed the link to sign and it has been closed down. Were you aware that your petition was shut down. I was disappointed because I was so excited to see someone was trying to do something about a situation that is affecting so many chronic pain patients.

You know I'm with everyone else that's in chronic pain. What I am getting ready to say is pretty much the same song that everyone else is singing. It's just not fair! We all are in constant pain and they the freakin law makers just don't give a crap. If you say anything about the medications that just going to assume oh your an addict and then take all your pain meds away . Like some other people say if the people start taking to much and overdose that's their problem. Don't make the ones that need it for everyday chronic pain suffer for their stupidity. I also am in chronic pain from disc degenerative disease and bone spurs and my pain meds are the only way for me to function in life. My doctors have already been cutting me down on my meds. Thank the lord I had some saved up or I would be in more pain than I already in. I mean as you all probably know the meds don't take the pain away completely they just take the edge off where you can try and go on with your daily lives. If they take us off our meds heck we might as well not be living because we sure want feel like living anyways. I just wish the law makers would quit making our lives so miserable and leave the health issues up to the doctors.

Another 2014 petition. Why are the posts so old being sent to our emails to only be disappointed that it is old and also closed? Please delete or put them in the order they belong. This was 2014. If I could put a proper petition together I would. I am not very good at proper wording for it being so important. I am happy to share and share and reshare a petition.

Re: SHK (# 9)

You did an outstand job explaining out problems we need to hit everyone we can, to get help and stop the government from interfering with our meds and doctors who were doing their job with concern and care. I am in so much pain after they took almost all of my medications and completely took the one that allowed me to walk. I want to bring up another sic point. I am a senior citizen who needs a good PCP... well guess what they do not want to take me as they treat me like an addict as soon as I say Percocet.. they drop the questions and go into a I do not give pain med and I say I never ever consider asking for help for my chronic pain.. I am sick of being treated as an addict. They are all bias and not decent doctors wenh they turn on you like that.. Who else has the issue????
