Chronic Pain, It is Real and We Need Your Support

Messages Sent So Far
Over 100 million people suffer from chronic pain in the U.S. and the number is growing. More and more physicians and practitioners are turning patients away, cutting back on their dosing, or stopping their pain medications all together. We are seeking your support to alleviate the stigma attached to chronic pain sufferers and our right to treatment without discrimination. We would like to see a bill enacted that would make it unlawful for physicians and practitioners to turn away patients who suffer with chronic pain.

Our pain is very real! We do not deserve to be discriminated against for having diseases, syndromes and conditions that cause chronic pain!!! It is absolutely rediculous as well as inhumane and a violation of our civil rights! What is happening? This has gone way too far...something needs to happen to help us!!! As if we don't suffer enough!!!

It is impossible to carry on a normal life in pain. The people/ Doctors making these rules must be lucky enough to not have chronic pain, well a little compassion goes a long way, I hope their family member never get turned down.
