There are a few people in the Fibro World that I trust implicitly, and as I have often said, Celeste Cooper is one of them. Yesterday she sent me the link to her latest article regarding the state of affairs for those requiring pain medication. As with anything she puts out, I need not add to it in any way. I do want to point out, however, that it is far more than just excellent information. It is actually a list of things you can do to help you with your situation. You could not purchase better advice from a more informed person. Here is the link: Guidelines for Pain Warriors
I do want to share my own feelings on this issue:
· I am appalled that pain management has essentially been set back by 20 years or more by the current rules.
· I am appalled that the practice of medicine has gone from the doctor’s office to the legislature’s unqualified opinions.
· I am appalled that Celeste has needed to create the list in her most recent post.
· And of course I am appalled, but also so very sorry and angry, that this is yet another burden that those with FMS—all with chronic pain actually—are having to take upon themselves.
Thank you Celeste Cooper for stepping up yet again, and personally sacrificing your time to put this together for those in need.
LIVE your fibroLIFE to the fullest!
