A little ticked off

So I just finished watching the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy, which has been one of my favourite shows. I'm a little ticked off now though, and not sure I want to watch it anymore. There was a young teeenaged patient who had scoliosis and a tethered spine. When in surgery, McDreamy says "He would have ended up being a chronic pain patient and probably addicted to pain killers". What??!! That made me angry... gggrrrrr.... If only I could get the chance to sit down with that ignorant writer... and Patrick Dempsey, for actually agreeing to repeat that... But, I guess that's Hollywood's perception of chronic pain sufferers, no wonder...
