  1. Nobody is learning anything but the pain crisis people.

    • I totally agree! I believe chronic pain patients know more about HOW the system SHOULD work than anybody. We see all the flaws. We are part of the flaws. We are the one’s that are taken advantage of and mistreated. These are the result of upper management. Not the poor people who attempt to keep corporate happy by working themselves beyond reasonable and having to listen to us cry and complain because of the abuse by the system. This is all part of the insurance companies trying to run the entire show. President Trump is in the process of taking care of these greedy insurance companies!
