I am not sure if this link is allowed - I am hoping it is. This is a video from anew channel about American's and Pain meds.http://video.foxnews.com/v/967040650001/group-installs-flags-for-troops-killed-in-action#/v/967823936001/america-painkiller-nation/?playlist_id=87485
I feel two ways about this subject.
1. I acknowledge that this IS a problem. That many people are abusing pain meds.
2. As a patient who NEEDS pain meds in order to have any type of a life. I would be curled up in a corner in a very dark place without pain control.
3. This topic is becoming more and more common in the news and on TV shows and other medias. However I am only hearing about the problem. I am not hearing any solutions that (in my opinion) are truly reasonable.
Like this link I posted above. The person says how horrible pain med are abused in the USA compared to other nations. However the options are not being shared with us.
I am not opening this to debate with anyone. I just want to share what is being voiced by the media
