The Words of Confucius

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

  1. Reblogged this on No More Criminalizing Chronic Pain Patients and commented:
    I know that this is my first post. It’s not about being criminalized. It just is perfect for my first post.
    When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2004, I understood, but I didn’t want to know. As the disease progressed, I ran into doctors who saw, but didn’t believe. Now, 13 years later, millions of chronic pain patients are referred to “pain management”. There you sign a drug contract. A contract that states that you can only get a pain killer from this provider. With the threat of losing access to medicine. It reminds me of movie scenes, where the street dealers tell the customer, you only get fixed by me.
    Often times, the physician will try “alternative therapies”. Psychotropic drugs for pain.
    Which brings me back to Confucius.
    All it takes is a trip to a dentist, and have painful work done. Guess who has to approve the following pain relief. Pain management.

    1. I went to one of those pain management centers. Did they help you any? The one I went to did two injections on me. The last time he hit a tumor in my hip that he didn’t know was there. The man never did any X-rays, MRIs or even examined me. But since I screamed and said a few choice words, he figured out he had done something wrong. When I complained to him about my hip, I was told, “we aren’t treating your hip!” Now that doctor deserves the doctor of the year award, NOT! My hip has been screwed up every since then. I went back to my neurologist and he found the tumor plus a few other things. If the pain management center is helping you, I am extremely glad. Around here, it seems our center either turns everyone into dope addicts or tries to kill them. I would recommend a neurologist before a pain management center anytime. Thank you for your comment. It is wonderful to see you and I hope you find some relief from your pain.

      1. No they wanted to burn nerve endings, or epidural injection. I told them to forget it. And you are so right about making druggies. I am refusing Lortabs because of terrible rebound pain. Percocets work, but soooo addictive. Tylenol w codeine works for the mild to moderate, but they want to push Lortabs. Pain management is for the bitds. I totally agree with you. It sad to be in pain, and your physician can’t prescribe as needed.
