There is no reason for people to suffer like this, especially people with cancer pain.
This War On Drugs has not worked out and look who pays the price the people of southern Uganda.
When liquid morphine cost just pennies to make no one should suffer their last days on this earth. Eventually these people with painful cancer and AIDS eventually die. When others with chronic pain have to live day after day in severe chronic pain.They said some would prefer suicide than go through the pain that they do.
Just as these people need food and water they need pain relief.
This liquid morphine should be available to places like Uganda because suffering every day is not living its just existing.
It took 10 years for doctors to diagnose as to why I was in so much pain.
Imagine to my surprise there was a medication that could keep my excruciating chronic pain under control because surgery is not a option for me.
I was able to return to a somewhat normal life. This is why I Advocate for others in chronic pain, when they have no idea what direction to go I try my best to place them with a Pain Specialist that can help them. They can be treated and get their chronic pain under control so they can once again return to a somewhat normal lifestyle and go back to work.
The Pain Specialist of America still have problems with the DEA and Medical Board when something happens to one of their patients.
When these patients don’t follow the doctors orders and drink alcohol with their pain medications it can cause death or mixing the prescribed pain medication with street drugs. Its not the doctor fault the pain patient did not follow protocol. Yet they pay the price and have to answer to the Medical Board as to why this patient died under the doctors care.
Much change is needed in the treatment of Chronic and Intractable pain in America.
And places like Uganda needs a program in place for the suffering, morphine can be easily distributed for those in need of pain relief.
With Regards to the suffering,
