We can all thank the FDA and other Fed. depts. for punishing all that need certain meds that we don't abuse for the few idiots that use them for "recreational" use. Recreational, a really stupid description of certain meds that are one's that will only work for us/those who are living with chronic pain conditions, mine brought to me/you from wounds from the military in Nam that 2 surgeries have actually made worse for me.
I would like to take some SOB, that made it so difficult for us, out behind a barn and try to beat the stupid out of them. I too have chronic pain,but have been narcotic free for two years, my body and mind are as good as they can get, the drugs are horrible. Unfortunately I'll be back on them, someday.
Our issue now is how to travel when our Dr's won't refill our prescriptions without going back to Michigan for a visit.
