Hello, I am new to this group, an injury at work almost 20 y

Hello, I am new to this group, an injury at work almost 20 years ago left me with chronic pain in my spine, right shoulder and needing a knee replacement. Over the years I've had the opportunity to help start and facilitate many self help groups in the Bay Area after getting my certification in chemical abuse counselling which included classes in pharmacology. The chronic pain has gotten worse over the years and I have been seeking or maybe starting a chronic pain group in my area. Over the years I have been battling Workmans Comp. for proper care and seeking Doctors that have proper training in pain management, Unfortunately with the Governments war on drugs all Doctors refuse to treat people like us even those who have knowledge of chemical addiction with proper meds thinking we are all drug addicts when the problem is the need for surgery. My prayers are with us all as only we can have empathy for one and other.

I had the flu, was unable to take my pills for a few days and went into withdrawal. I was even unaware that these pills were addictive. They help with the pain, and at the same time I want the pills and don’t. Of course I don’t want to be addicted, but when you’re doubled over I’m pain it’s hard to tell what you want anymore. Sometimes our war against drugs is even unaware. Sometimes it’s so painful I can’t breathe, but I don’t want to be addicted

@DEEVAINTHEFIRSTSTATE Amen!! I have had chronic pain for almost forty years. If you don't know pain ( like the bureaucrats speaking out against pain meds ) you have no right to tell us what is good for us!
