Last I checked Chronic Pain Patients were Americans not marionettes. How has the 2016 CDC Opioid Guidelines for Chronic Pain affected you? Are you a Chronic Pain or Rare Disease Patient or an Opioid Use Disorder or Addicted Patient now? Has your doctor decided you must stop or decrease your pain medications because you are addicted or risk becoming addicted because a bureaucrat or statistic told him or her in some statistic? If so, it’s time to read the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the ADA of 1972 and 1990. You are an American with a disease not an addict because someone in an office told them you were.
