most societies/communities have 1 or more agitators, disruptors, false prophets, scammers, traitors, saboteurs and cult leaders

Some believe our country is on the verge of a Civil War, they may be right, but it won’t be a bilateral war like our last Civil War..  Our society has voluntarily divided itself in – for lack of a better description – TRIBES.

The chronic pain community is not all that different from our country of as a whole.

Recently a fellow chronic pain pt who had been advocating for end stage pediatric pts in a large hospital system that has a “no opiate” policy.  All of a sudden the advocated was told that he was no longer permitted to advocate for these end of life pediatric cancer pts.  I suppose that this major hospital system will return to treating these pediatric pts with NSAIDS and Acetaminophen and let them live the rest of their lives in a torturous level of pain.

There are rumors as to who said what and to whom… I am not going to elaborate. However, they know who they are and what was said to cause this to happen.  One can only imagine the deprived mental status of those who have been involved in this.

Some have told me that this tribe of malcontents have monetized chronic pain pts’- personal information  and several other covert processes. I started my blog in 2012 and have tried to motivate and educate chronic pain pts in some ways that they can navigate their way to getting their pain management back.  Some chronic painers have told me that I should charge for my advice.  My Pharmacy degree, license and career has provided for Barb and myself a comfortable retirement.

After this issue with these end of life pediatric pts,  Going forward… I am going to ASK of people that want my advice to make a contribution to one of the four national charities listed below, these are all about THE KIDS… and charities we support.  Maybe in some small way, my advice can help more than just one person/family.
