I live in Canada Ontario in particular,and the walk in clinic here is used as people's primary care due to Dr' shortage's hear the one by me has those sticker's also and although no artical's posted this place has a different Dr' every day I think they work their part time for the money and they do NOT no matter what perscribe any pain or narcotic med's period and that is the way it is comming up here Dr.s do not want to treat pain patient's because to treat it properly require's pain medication and I have personally been told NO and we do not seem to have those "Pain Clinic" you have in the state's at least I have never found them and the one;s that call themselve's these "Sports Medicine rehab" that are here do only shot's' Physical therapy, water therapy and anti inflamitories ned's that's it they say it is "up to you " to get better and control your own pain by the effort you put in really that is what I was told and I payed them out of my insurance to have a teenager PT tell me that.
Up here on A and E channel 31 their is a show called Intervention a show about peoples addictions and a attemp to gt them off it
Well last night their was this individual that crushe's up and inject's Oxycontin more than 17 time's per day they showed this person and his friend's do this activity on camera all of it I could NOT believe what I was seeing this person do with the medication that has given and saved my life completely flabergasted and just made me furious as this person was laughing and wanted sympathy and blamed the drug for this unbelievable he dose this over 17 time's per day him and his friend's and get's money for it from his mother and she know's all about what he dose
Now after putting this activity on prime time tv It sorta become's understandable why up here they are not perscribing Oxycontin and I am sorry to say I feel it is only the start and it is going to get alot worse I mean I had NO zero sympathy for this creep he made me furious doing this and I turned to my wife ant told her that is why people are not getting this drug who desperatly need it I know all about addiction's and alchole addiction being a disease and it is but this individual doing this 17 plus times every day just made me sick we saw him crushing and ingecting the exact same Mg pill's I take and he dose it 17 time's every day
Anyway I have at one point or another tried most of the common pain med's up here methadone included some at pretty high dose's over the year's and Oxycontin is the Only med that work's for me with stability and without ever increasing dose's and this med has really saved alot of peoples live's and to see it getting betten down to the point I am even ashamed to tell people I take it because of what it has been associated with not only make's me very very sad it also make's me furiou's and I fear I will not be able to obtain it anymore then my life will most likely be in jepordy without it
