What some have to suffer for the sake of others politicial gain

 

fundamentally transforming the war on drugsSRAcrystalball

The actions of our President and our AG Holder..  does not seem to be “color blind”

One of these two have “butted in” into several  local matters where a African American and a Caucasian have conflicted.. We have seen the reduced enforcement of “street vendors” of drugs on the street… while we have seen a increase enforcement on BIG BUSINESS registrants of the DEA ( wholesalers, pharmacies, prescribers).  We have a (white)  Marine (Andrew Tahmooressi)  that got lost and ended up in Mexico and has been jail for months.. http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/20/us/mexico-marine-andrew-tahmooressi-mental-state  Nothing being done by anyone in the administrations.. my money is that Tahmooressi will be release just before next month’s election.

On the 6th of Oct.. I posted the above statement. They just announced that this veteran was just released from the Mexican prison.. FOUR DAYS before the election.. HOW CONVENIENT ! What a bunch of friggin NARCISSISTS !

It has always been claimed that all it would take would be a phone call from our President to get this PTSD suffering veteran out of jail.. It has been reported that the family has spent over 100,000 on legal fees trying get him set free.

Too much care… denied care.. outcome the same ?

Va. Beach psychiatrist’s license to be suspended

http://hamptonroads.com/2014/10/va-beach-psychiatrists-license-be-suspended-sat#commentLink

From the article:

Virginia Beach psychiatrist Dr. Waldo Ellison informed the board he was retiring on that day. He appeared in an informal hearing in September on allegations that he violated his duty as a doctor by failing to properly diagnose attention deficit disorders and monitor patients’ use of Adderall, a stimulant that can become addictive if misused.

During a period from February 2010 to October 2011, Fee sought, and received, escalating amounts of Adderall even after his parents insisted to doctors that he was an honor student who had never shown signs of attention deficit disorder, and that he had become dangerously addicted to the stimulant.

Fee continued to get the prescriptions after he exhibited hallucinations, paranoia and violent tendencies that resulted in police calls and hospitalizations.

His prescriptions came to an abrupt end, instead of his being weaned off the drugs, and he committed suicide on Nov. 7, 2011, several weeks after his medication ran out.

Rick and Kathy Fee, Richard Fee’s parents, live in Virginia Beach and are trying to bring more attention to misdiagnosis of attention deficit disorders and overprescription of drugs such as Adderall.

They have filed a $2 million malpractice lawsuit against Ellison and Parker; trial is scheduled for July.

So how long do we have to wait before the survivors of a chronic pain pt that commits suicide because some Pharmacist …”did not feel comfortable” filling their controlled Rx takes someone to court over a wrongful death?

This is how the government protects & serves ?

Anthem canceling 30,000 individual health policies for Hoosiers

http://www.ibj.com/articles/50283-anthem-canceling-30000-individual-health-policies?utm_source=ibj-daily&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=2014-10-31

From the article:

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is canceling the policies of about 30,000 Hoosiers and asking them to switch over to new health plans that comply with Obamacare’s rules.

That change could cause some customers’ premiums to spike while at the same time limiting their choices of hospitals and doctors.

For the past few months, the Indianapolis-based health insurer has been sending out notices to holders of individual insurance policies who renewed their coverage before Dec. 31, 2013. Such early renewals allowed Anthem customers to continue coverage under pre-Obamacare rules.

The Obama administration has said these so-called transitional policies can continue until as late as 2016. But an Anthem spokesman said the insurer chose to end them now due to what it perceived as modest demand.

That will be 30,000 fewer people voting for Democrats in this election

Another “rare incident” makes the nightly news

Apparently the availability of Heroin in Indianapolis is not a problem..


Indiana’s Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s BITTER PILL PROGRAM

working at  its best..  THREE HEROIN OVERDOSES PER DAY

Here is how the chain drugs stores in Indianapolis are complicit in this program

Isn’t this what we call TORTURE.. if we did it to those terrorist who want to kill us ?

Indiana is also near the top for the number of pharmacy robberies and meth lab busts…

I’m not comfortable: Part three

GENOCIDE IN AMERICA ? update 10/30/2014

This page is going to contain posts made on other places on the web by those in chronic pain and how the war on drugs has turned into a war on pts. The number of people who are abusing some substance is not going down, but the number of chronic pain pts not being able to get their chronic pain adequately treated is rapidly increasing… as is the use/abuse of Heroin.

History shows us other countries that have had a OVERT genocide… It would appear that our society has chosen to have a COVERT genocide. The rules/guidelines in place is like playing cards with a stacked deck  Just label it as a accident ?

And the whole process’ genesis was based on racism and bigotry War on Drugs GENESIS… BIGOTRY ?

As more and more chronic painers lose or have their therapy cut or they are more and more home bound and more and more INVISIBLE to our society.. They are emotionally, physically, mentally exhausted… many are losing or have lost the will and ability to “FIGHT” and having to deal with increased depression.

I am not encouraging or endorsing suicide.. I am trying to make those with chronic pain MORE VISIBLE to those in our society that are CLUELESS !


For 16 yrs I used pain meds with very little problems. I took higher doses then most. Some people think if u weight 100 lbs u shouldn’t need the same dose as a 200 lb man. I sometimes vacation from one med to another for a month or two then go back . This helped to keep doses from getting higher and higher. Worked for me. I took my meds every 4 hours. i lived a pretty good life. Could work clean house and care for the kids. Do my community service. Felt pretty good about myself. Then last yr around this time it all went down hill. Only allowed to use meds every 6 hrs and at half the dose. Then no one would fill my scripts because my drs office was 40 miles from my home. For one yr I got my meds by mail or fed ex. That really sucked waiting and waiting for my meds to come. Then Aug 21 2014 I got that letter from my dr. Dropping me as a patient after 16 yrs. now I have nothing. I suffer everyday every hour every min. I can’t sleep I can’t function. I wake up everyday wishing I hadnt. Why didn’t I just die? I never thought this would happen to me never never but it did. I almost did kill myself two weeks ago but I don’t want to do that to my son. The pain it would cause him. What is my future don’t know? I did get lucky a couple days ago and found an old pain patch from 2008. Worked great. Don’t want to hear anything about it being expired nor do I suggest this to anyone else. What did I have to lose? I got to be a person again for a few days.got some stuff done. Made me feel better about myself. I smiled and got some sleep. I know that my life has to have some kind of pain management or I will kill myself. I would like to have my old meds back but those days r gone now. Medical marijuana is now my only hope because the pill problem keeps getting worse. I need that hope. I don’t want to die but I can’t live with this nerve pain. At the city hall meeting for mmj those people against talked about pain meds and pot as one and the people that used them r just the scum of the earth.the looks I got. I am sick not an addict or a bad person. I am a good caring person and didnt deserve the looks I got. I hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else in this group. But I don’t see things getting better only worse in this state of FL. This group keeps growing more groups r popping up. Sorry to say but we r at war. I know how the Jews felt when Hitler came to town. People,here in FL Pam Bondi is way ahead in polls. Why she is a monster. I have new found hope from younger people voting and or getting involved in their government. But this too might take some time. Got to vote. Talked to over 50 kids yesterday at the mall about voting this coming election.they can make things better for us so u better treat these kids with respect. They r our future


WELL SHIT!!!! I JUST GOT OUT OF ICU FOR TRYING TO KILL MYSELF BECAUSE IM SO TIRED OF HAVING UNMANAGED PAIN TO BEGIN WITH HERE IN LOVELY FLORIDA……GOOD THING I HAVE A BACK UP PLAN CAUSE IM NOT DRINKING CHARCOAL AGAIN!


http://www.news-press.com/story/news/crime/2014/09/08/death-investigation-at-groves-rv-park-in-fort-myers/15280035/

A husband and wife were found dead at their trailer Monday at the Groves RV Resort on John Morris Road, apparently the victims of a murder-suicide.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to unit #100 in the resort at 16175 John Morris Road at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

The sheriff’s office report said the response was in reference to a male caller advising the LCSO that he and his wife “could no longer stand the pain and that they were leaving.”


 We SHOULD BE spending our time trying to take care of our pain !!!  I don’t think heroin addict’s spend that much time running around looking for it on the streets !!!
I ALMOST HAD TO go that route … Because of WAY Too much pain …  With absolutely no pain relieving medication  Better off …going to the streets eh ???
No judgements or rationing on the streets !!!  No wonder we turn to the streets for our necessary/life saving medication !!! Is that their agenda ???
Or just wait till we kill our selves because the pain is too bad ???  Kinda like genocide by suicide ?!?! It’s just unacceptable !!!


Just can’t do this anymore


I am done. Fed up of pain. Fed up of drs and people screwing my life up. Making me live in agony for no reason when they have the power to help. I only ever go to hospital when there is no other choice, when I am in a full blown life threatening crisis. I only ever cry out for support when I am at the end of my rope. But now that rope has snapped. Can’t keep asking for help and support and being rejected by everyone again and again. It is in humane to be in this much pain, it is cruel. I don’t know how much everyone expects me to deal with all the time but I am DONE. I am not living like this anymore.


I’m about done with living. This isn’t living and I hate the quality of so called life I have. This whole thing has thrown me into a fibro flare on top of my back pain. I hurt so bad now I want to die.


 This is a debate question. Not a plan of action !!!!   When is it okay to give up?  When is it okay to want to stop this constant pain?  My wife says it’s selfish for anyone to contemplate taking their life but I think it’s selfish to make someone live like this Every day …..day after day after day.  Today is not a horrible day. Today is an okay day. This is a debate question. Not a plan of action !!!!


 Maybe I shouldn’t ask this, but I’m absolutely at my end. Feel free to message me if you don’t feel comfortable here. I need pain meds, BADLY. I can’t go on much longer this way. I contemplate suicide daily. I’m not a good mother. Or wife. Or friend (which I’ve lost most because the pain makes it unbearable to go out and be social). I can’t work much anymore, which is putting a huge financial and mental/emotional strain on my poor husband. I can barely keep up with my housework either. I feel like a 30 year old failure. My doctor took me off of the one thing that helped me, tramadol. Since then I’ve rapidly gone down hill.


 I bet no one would care if I died, so why not get it over and done with, I mean no one wants to help me. So why bother with life. I’m in agonizing pain daily. Im a looser now and always will be and I drive people away so dont bother being my friend because ill probably make u hate me like I do with everyone else.


 My wife has really been struggling in the last few months. This month has especially been difficult. She has stated many times that her fibro is getting worse. She has ran out of her pain meds and became very depressed. Yesterday she tried to kill herself. I found her face down on her bedroom floor. She had overdosed on other medications and was barely conscience. Ambulance took her to er, after 5 hours a private room. She finally became alert at 11pm enough to answer questions. She was transferred to an ICU last night and today at 5pm transferred to another hospital to deal with the depression.


 I know it is heartbreaking to miss these things and see the disappointment on their faces and people and family want to judge me because I have decided to end my pain on my dad’s bday and are making preparations to do so then I do not have to face begging doctors for enough ends that don’t even touch my pain and be treated like a criminal because I have multiple health issues. I give up


 http://www.infowars.com/i-am-sorry-that-it-has-come-to-this-a-soldiers-last-words/

This is what brought me to my actual final mission. Not suicide, but a mercy killing. I know how to kill, and I know how to do it so that there is no pain whatsoever. It was quick, and I did not suffer. And above all, now I am free. I feel no more pain. I have no more nightmares or flashbacks or hallucinations. I am no longer constantly depressed or afraid or worried

I am free. I ask that you be happy for me for that. It is perhaps the best break I could have hoped for. Please accept this and be glad for me.


 I have a family member who has been in excruciating pain for years, surgeries and injections made it worse. The only thing that gave him the slightest relief was methadone. Well, insurance changed their rules and would not pay anymore, so they have been paying out of pocket. Sunday night he snapped, couldn’t take it anymore and took his life. Why am I telling you? His family is falling apart.


You can keep your doctor… if you pay out of pocket

Over 214,000 Doctors Opt Out of Obamacare Exchanges

http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/barbara-boland/over-214000-doctors-opt-out-obamacare-exchanges

From the article:

Over 214,000 doctors won’t participate in the new plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA,) analysis of a new survey by Medical Group Management Association shows. That number of 214,524, estimated by American Action Forum, is through May 2014, but appears to be growing due to plans that force doctors to take on burdensome costs. It’s also about a quarter of the total number of 893,851 active professional physicians reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In January, an estimated 70% of California’s physicians were not participating in Covered California plans.
