I feel so shamed and weak by the way I have been talked to by medical professionals whom I have gone to recently who have told me "calling more than 1x per week to ask questions "raises re flags" about addiction", "hospital director and DEA won't allow us to give pain meds for pre-existing conditions so I can't even exam or access you","my hands are tied by the law" ...(I was not whining or demanding)
I can't even continue thinking about this I feel so BAD or CRAZY!
Why do they judge us when they have no idea of some of the emotional/physical experiences we have survived? Some of the histories I read in here make me think that we are lightning rods to gather up many jolts in life to keep others from being hit.
Now my husband is starting to have some serious health problems and I can barely care for myself. I am afraid and feel so alone right now.
Turn down prescribing pain meds, if you must docs, but don't verbally grind me into the ground.
