I know we keep talking about
these same issues on the forum - and with good reason - but reading them listed so starkly makes me want to scream.
Maybe if we didn't have to expend so much energy responding like children to rules that favor only someone else's office, we'd have a little energy leftover for our lives. Or maybe to organize with one of the chronic pain organizations and fight this junk. Again, I think it's reasonable for a doctor to keep track of our meds, and whether we're taking them properly, but the rest of the junk is CRAZY. I am trying to figure out how to pay for my heat this winter. How to pay for my co-pays for meds. and doctor visits. And maybe, just maybe, whether I can ever work again. My doctors should be working WITH me in these efforts, not adding extra stress.
Ah, but I digress.
