Go and please sign the petition THEN post it on Facebook. With the post write about your pain story.

Then look into the future because as of January 1st the maximum morphine equivalent that was 120 units goes down to 90 units. Let people know what will happen to you with MORE pain.

I wonder if we can do a Wheels on Washington Event (most of us wouldn't be able to march).

I agree 100%. I have no life and problems with my back leg and knee. I also have a 14 yr old son and can't do nothing with life. It sucks.

Re: Tara (# 9)

Well said!! Everything you've said is so true! It's exactly what I've been through and still fighting. Sad thing is doctor's don't care. And in my case I have both pain issues and mental disorders from emotional and physical abuse I've endured as well as PTSD n depression from finding my brother passed away from sleep apnea in 2008, then lost both gma n papa. All 3 passed away within 10 days!! Then my dad tried committing suicide 3xs this last time 2yrs ago. He shot himself with a shot gun which blew half his face off for which I found and saved his life. I've been through so much and have struggled with pain then addiction n now taking Subutex for pain. I'm no longer an addict but to the system I'm labeled one due to only way of getting my medication since no longer wanting to take any pain meds due to past experiences but due to changes in laws in VA I have to travel every month for my script 5 hours round trip n sad thing is I went to a psychiatrist to get treated for my anxiety depression and PTSD and to my surprise was willing to help me and get me back on prev meds I've taken before until he saw I was taking the Subutex for which I explained why I was taking n still today can't get any help for my anxiety. He said and I quote you'll have to choose one or the other..? Really? What's happened to compassion? Not everyone is an addict and here I have to resort to other options as you had stated just because no one wishes to help me due to me taking the Subutex for my pain for which i have to go to a clinic for addiction recovery just to get this medication due to these stupid laws. When is this ever going to stop? This is why our system is screwed up and so many suicides happening bc no1 is willing to help all bc they're thinking you're seeking drugs for which I'm def not. I would just like to live a normal life, is that so much to ask for!! #DoneVenting #SupportUsHumansWhoRequireMeds

Did you just say “Let the junkies overdose if they so choose to do so?” Are you kidding me? You think an addict CHOOSES to die? Since you yourself NEEDS pain medication how does it feel to be without it? Well that’s the same feeling as your so called “junkie” and I resent this as my straight A nephew died at 22 because he had no help. A system that is broken. A first choice yes, as everyone has experimented in their lifetime, then after that they cannot get out. Shame on you.

Pain medications are always going to be available for those of us who really have severe or ongoing pain that no other treatments will help. Doctors, PA’s and Practicioners need to start being part of the solution to those who have a legitimate reason and need for opiate pain medications. Those who continue to abuse and overdose on these medications will either die or they will be in jail, there are no other options for them.

Re: CJMoore in CT (# 60)

Did you mean they're increasing the equivalent from 90 to 120? The neurologist I saw for over 15 years here in Texas no longer treats chronic pain patients, but when we visited a while back he said the crack down would be less severe in the not too distant future. (This weekend was one of those where Monday is too distant in my opinion) His reason behind the transition is the paperwork involved for a single practioner. The pain management group I'd been with for over 5 years has closed their doors. Here in Austin Texas it's been impossible to find another doctor so far. Starting all over again, even with my records, is like being a guinea pig again. Congratulations on your great news! Hopes and prayers being realized by any of us brings a smile to my face.

Re: Momo (# 8)

The side effects you mention may or may not be related to opioid use. You do not say what other meds you are on, or what disease is causing your pain.
All drugs have side effects. You don't tell us what dosages you have taken or the length of time. Alternative drug treatments are far more dangerous, and largely ineffective. These include anti-depressants, seizure drugs and others. Opioids taken in the lowest dosages possible, and taken as prescribed are relatively safe. It's important to let your doctor know about all meds you are taking, eat a healthy diet, exercise, and do everything possible to stay healthy within the parameters of your pain and disease process.

Trump helping us???!!!! He couldn't care less except that it is a great political grandstanding issue that gets a lot of publicity as long as you are against the use of any opioids.

Re: Bella (# 67)

Thx for your reply. As I used to be a so called junkie...before I started buprenorphine treatment in 2007. Yes I went to the doctor for pain medicine until my surgery could happen. And after. Yes that's when I chose to do so and picked up pain and take them...after a good amount of time I no longer chose to do so. I became addicted fast and in the long run had to take them just to keep from being dope sick. Addiction runs high in my family, but mostly alcohol. I would never wish the pain of addiction to anyone. Let alone die or overdose because of addiction or anything else. It's a shame some people just dont have the knowledge. I happen to notice on these groups that some people say, ...oh I never abused them or I never called them in early. I'll bet for more than half of them, you take their pill bottles away and let's see how many addicts are in these groups.

As I read pain management blogs, I noticed mentions of, oh I never filled my scripts early or, I only took the prescribed amount daily, never sold them either..and then continued to say they have taken them for years, and they so claimed that they are not addicted. So why don't you put your pills away and don't touch them for a week! In the end you will be running for your pill bottles & that's addiction. You all are addicted and don't even know it...you may be getting your prescription from your doctor and so you call yourself 'not a junkie' because your not getting them illegally. Many many, many years ago people didn't have pain medicine, they used natural plants to provide relief...and nowadays they have pills, but you cry damn I'm only allowed to take 4 a day and so... all you people crying about you can't get your pills... grow up and deal with the pain...I'm assuming addiction is all over in this group. That's what you write about, needs and wants of pain medicine.

Re: Emptybottleaddiction (# 78)

This blog is exactly what it’s for “Pain Management” & unless you had to deal with extreme debilitating pain, you have no idea what it’s like to live like this day in & day out. I, myself do not take opioids for my pain but I have been there before. My dr implanted a pump so I get relief through that. There will come a day when something happens to you. Then you can look for a natural relief. This blog is for people who have pain & were prescribed their meds for relief & now can no longer get them. When you have that kind of pain & you have trouble just to get up & go to the bathroom then you have a right to judge. Otherwise you don’t need to be in this chat room.
