Greetings from New Jersey

Hi - I recently joined this forum after reading and watching it for years.  I have a 25 year history of back problems with the last 5 years spent in chronic pain.  I stay active, exercise, and work but my biggest complaint is the amount of money it costs to keep my opioid use infrequent even with very good insurance.  Between all the copays and costs of services not covered by insurance, I'm lucky that I can stay employed and afford these many treatments.

I've been active on the "Chronic Pain" sub on Reddit and actively reaching out to my elected officials to make sure we get the treatments we need to stay healthy.
