As a sufferer of chronic pain for my entire life I have had the extreme displeasure of seeing many ignorant doctors in regard to chronic pain and the pain medications used to treat it. I think it is just downright disgusting how people with chronic pain are treated by the medical profession. We are immediatly judged as drug addicts.
We arent even given the benefit of the doubt. And the more we try to get relief the harder it gets because we are then viewed as "drug seekers".
And we cant even complain to anyone because the more you complain the worse you look. We are stuck in a cycle of pain and unhappiness unless we have cancer. This is so unfair!!
