I've just been reading the posts from intractible chronic pain
patients and I am having some very angry feelings.
We are treated almost like second rate citizens. It's almost like doctors don't like
us or care to deal with us. Some of us have better luck with doctors than others.
It seems to be a matter of luck!
Intractible chronic pain has been around a long time. A lot of diseases have been
cured or helped tremendously -- our life-altering problems have been overlooked
and misunderstood. It needs to change.
Chronic pain effects all members of the family. (Those who care to stay around)
In many cases our pain can be as dangerous as cancer.
