      As a person with intractible chronic pain, the bills now being passed in state legislatures to "fight the war on prescription drugs" on the streets and in pill mills is being fought in the offices of legitimate pain doctors, who are an easier bust. These doctors are now openly admitting that they FEAR prescribing medications to patients who desperately need them, leaving them to suffer with horrible pain, and no options. They say that opioids overdoses now kill more people than auto accidents. How many people are dying at their own hands because they can't take the pain anymore....or does the government even want to know that answer?

      I suffer from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. My doctor prescribes pain medications to treat the pain. (what a concept) However, I am frequently "policed," i.e. treated with derision and suspicion, by non medical professionals, simply because I am a chronic pain patient.

      I too have a petition to change the laws of prescribing. I am a pain sufferer and a pain patient advocate!
