just curios, i believe that it would help the rest of us chronic pain people if someone who was or is famous would come out of the closet so to speak and chronicle the benefits of meds and pain drs. the only time it is mentioned is if someone gets arrested or dies due to narcotics. i find it curious that no one has come forward to state the benefits of them. i know that to some extent that this would be professional suicide to come out. i wish for once that some one who had the guts would be our advocate and go before congress. i have never heard of anyone famous that suffers from chronic pain and i don't mean the dufus jeff conway from taxi who is a drama play un to himself. we need a person who is respected, go before congress with tv and state that they would not be able to function if it was not for narcotic dispensed by a pain doctor.i personally believe if there were, this person would not come out due to the negative stigma associated with them. part of this is to blame from people who abuse and lie to get them. there is a tremendous amount of negative press about oxycontin,hillbillie heroin, due to the negative press about people who crush it up to get a "morphine high." this is ridiculous anyway because oxy is time release percodan not morphine. what do you think? is there any hope in the future? will a famous person become our advocate? does anyone know someone like this who will stick out their necks to help other chronic pain patients?
love and peace to all chronic pain people
