Hi I was wondering why a topic was blocked?
 
We had an an interesting forum on pain medication and the DEA's role in making it hard to obtain proper treatment. I am curious as to why it was blocked. Did we break a rule?
 
No biggie just interested. I wanted to say Hi to Pam and talk about "Slaughterhouse 5" A great book that made me a Vonnegut fan.

Someone probably decided it was not PC enough and had it yanked. There are a few here that are rather sensitive to anything that might bring any bad light upon this forum.

It sucks but the world has become so darn politically correct that adults sharing opinions in intelligent ways are not always able to do so because someone somewhere has to watch out for the cookoo bird that will get offended by it.

Feel free to e-mail me though. I love Vonnegut as well!

Thanks Rose

I feel bad that something I posted offended someone. I guess it was controversy and that is not allowed.

The fact remains that we do have a vested interest in knowing if we will have adequate care. I do apologize to those offended as I did not want to hurt anyone just open up the idea of change.

I believe the topic was blocked because there was a mention of illegal drugs and that goes against the forum rules, but I could be wrong.

I'm not sure what happened to that particular thread, but in the past either one of the moderators can answer the question, or you can e-mail the administrator directly (the admnistrator is also the founder of Healing Well, makes tne rules, and I assume pays all associated costs). If you read through the rules there is one pertaining to discussions of certain issues. I think the point is that the founder wants this to be for support purposes. i don't see it as a PC issue. Since I don't pay the bills to maintain the forum, i don't have a problem keeping to the rules that have been established. Don't know if that makes me odd, but if it does that's cool with me! LOL

I just noticed the thread was locked not deleted. I'm not sure but I think the admin. usually does that.

It always tickles me when controversial topics are locked.  We sure wouldn't want controversy in our lives, now would we?!  I'm not talking specifically about HW, either - it happens across forums all over the internet.   It's kind of like turning the radio up to cover that sound coming from your car engine.   redface

Hello Bionicwoman

That's a funny analogy. I don't understand why it was blocked and not deleted.
The mention of an ilegal drug was not about using it, it was about the lenghts one would go to to get relief.

I did not specifically say to use any thing-Just what I'd use to gain control of pain. Seems resonable a response in a "pain forum".

I thought this topic would be deleted or locked (whatever that is)

For that reason, I tried to print out information for furture study. My computer
bogged down and would not print the post I was mostly interested in.

I'm not surprised that we weren't allowed to speak. However, I'm very sad.
Chronic pain is
so hard to deal with. If our pain suddenly turned into Cancer, we'd get relief &
understanding. (I hope this post goes through)

the swan: Would you please send me the post that I want. You know what it is.

I wish all the best in the New Year.

We gotta do something, guys. We're living so much longer due to new procedures.
Unfortunatley, our pain medication has not kept pace.

I'm worried that it was something that I said. Oh, dagnabit. ***!

What interests me most is why a moderator hasn't jumped in and answered your questions! 10 people have posted in regards to it so this will also likely be blocked. I'm not paranoid, have nothing to be paranoid about, something just not quite right about this site. skull

Jim

Really? Come on now. Let it go. Your input to this forum is valuable. If someone gets their nickers in a twist over a vague reference then fluff on them. Smile, nod and keep being yourself. Life is too short to let the opinions of another dictate who you are and what you do.

ekkorose,

I don't see where "Jim" has spoken on this particular thread.

We have for years and years let the opinions of others dictate whether or
not we can have relief from Chronic Pain. It's impossible to just "Let Go"
of the idea.

I have pain in my neck. Don't know if I can make it to Christmas Eve
lunch. That's our only family celebration and it starts it two hours!
Let's see how Baclofin does.

Gee this is getting to be fun!

Don't worry noting is going to change by our rantings here online.

"Illegal"? Is'nt that a sick bird?

Merry Christmas! I don't know what post it is you speak of Pam Sorry but I am not even sure how to send things around this post.

You're right Glenn.

I got paranoid and came on to delete my last post. I see that you have posted
so now it's impossible for me to delete. Oh woe ...

My neck is a little better. I'm dressed, powdered and perfumed. The car is
loaded with food and gifts. I gotta go. Gotta. Gotta go.

Happy Holiday.

PALady is correct. The forum administrator [owner of Healing Well] is the only one that can lock threads. He didn't delete it, just locked it so no one can add any further posts. I do not know his reasoning but can take a guess. The topic seems somewhat off-topic. Yes, I understand that those with chronic pain take narcotic meds and therefore have an interest in government oversight. However, there were quite a bit of political overtones in the thread and that is likely the reason it was locked.

the swan - Glen - I do not believe you offended anyone nor were the reason the thread was closed.

Happy Holidays to everyone! ~~ Ides

I think maybe i gave advice on dosage. That is, I believe, against the law. I may
have said, "I think you need more medication." Yes, it could have been me that
got this locked up. Oh, I'm sorry. I suffer for this and am wishing this too would
hurry up and pass. I did not have criminal intent.

As I understand it, you can suggest that someone take more (or less) of a medication
that is otc like Philip's Milk of Magnesia, aspirin, Tylenol ... stuff like that. Nothing
else. Not ever.

Christmas has been survived here on the left coast. Woo hoo.

Hi Folks

I drove 80 miles and back from NYC to Poughkeepsie and due partly to my elevated mood, The sciatica was not too bad. I dread driving too long as it cause's my knee to be folded up and it hurts like heck when I sit too long.

Hope everyone had a good holiday-I had a wonderful time with family. My dad even made it over from the nursing home and I drove him back. He is now resigned to being there and that makes me very happy as well as easing my fears. He was stubborn and kept falling and hitting his head. Then the trips to the ER began over and over ad infinitum. He would end up at a home and then leave AMA, go home anf fall again! This went on for months. We got the call always at night on his neck he has a button to hit that is a life alert so the police and ambulance would come. Sorry to go on and on but this caused a lot of heartache. No one wants him to be in a home but he was going to split his head open one time too many. Anyway, Im happy he has the help he so very much needed.

And may I add that the reason that no moderator from this forum got to this right away is Lindalou and I were both down very ill. I couldn't hold down water for 4 days. So...thanks Ides for popping in and helping out.

I do agree...the purpose the owner had when setting up this forum is to have a place to support others who are suffering with disease issues as he does. It's no secret the he suffers from Crohns disease and is often just as sick as the rest of us. He wants this to be a family friendly sight, something you wouldn't mind your children reading. He has no problem with discussing political issues as they pertain to getting medications but that's not what he wants the focus of this forum to be. There are literally hundreds of other forums for that purpose and he asks that this forum please be more upbeat and supportive....not that he's PC or any other such things. When a topic starts to stray off topic or seems to be heating up he will lock the thread to avoid it getting worse. If it's blatantly against the forum rules then he'll delete it. But he obviously felt there was some merit to the discussion.

Hope that helps some more,
