This State of Confusion
March 16, 2019

It is so sad to see pain patients suffering for the lack of pain medication...

Ok, I am a pain patient. I used to use medication and I still do on occasion. I have a prescription for a powerful painkiller that must last me three months. I get 30 pills for a three month period. For every day, I use mmj, medical marijuana, and/or kratom.

For a lot of people I know, these things don't work. I know pain patients, both online and in person, who have tried herbs, acupuncture, meditation, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, nerve blocks, steroid injections, radio frequency ablation, all kinds of other procedures, stem cell transplant, platelet rich plasma injections, NSAIDs, nerve medications, muscle relaxants, antidepressants and a voodoo hippy...
