    I am weary of being in pain every day. I have cervical and spinal stenosis, also have significant scoliosis, over 50% . My pain meds, are generic, and don't work well. I am grateful to have them. I can't sleep much. Think I will try to get some now.

    According to reports I've read online and my doctor, we (people on pain meds) are going to lose some of our meds in less than a year. We've already lost the soma, that helped with the muscle spasms. The Obama care system is limiting the doctors abilities to help the people who really need the help. We are being grouped in with those who abuse or sell their meds. We really need to stand together and be heard. Many people are considering street drugs which will reduce our effectiveness in societies eyes. Personally I've had spinal surgeries and I have seven, yes 7,spinal disorders my pain meds finally have me stable. My doctor has worked hard to have the ability to help us, now they want to tie his hands. These people who are trying to limit the doctors ability to help their patients are not in the medical profession. I would really like to let them deal with my spinal issues for one week, then see how "easy" it is to be in my body. Each of us are uniquely designed and no one else can tell us how or what we are feeling. 
     We need to band together and be heard. Our doctors can do very little without our help in this regard. Please start asking others to join in this issue and be heard. We can't afford to lose the good doctors out there. Let's all speak up together. Thanks for reading this to the end.
