I agree with some of what you have to say. Chronic pain suffers who have no options should have unfettered access to narcotic pain relief. Heres the rub. CH sufferers have options. There are many affective treatments for CH minus the narcotics. Most CH sufferers who have gone the narcotic route, myself included, will tell you that the consequences of continued narcotic use are not worth the short lived affectiveness for CH pain relief. Your post motivations may be pure but you are in the wrong place carrying the wrong message. The message you carry is unneccesarily dangerous and potentially devastating to sufferers who have not yet found an affective combination of CH meds.
