Hi, I am a chronic pain patient. I cannot tell you how important it is to validate chronic pain. Many times I gaslight myself, and get angry that I didn’t get a lot done because I was in pain. I take opioids to manage my pain, but it took me so long for someone to take a “chance” on me and do the first prescription. I firmly believe I wouldn’t be alive today if I hadn’t been given opioids. Thank you for what you do.

Also, for others reading this, maintaining an opioid prescription over a long term is HARD. monthly in person visits and pee tests and 20-page questionairres. It’s expensive too (not the drugs, the visits and labs.) not to mention the side effects.
