Breast cancer has a pink Ribbon, Aids has a Red Ribbon, Autism has an insignia,,Wheres our public awareness of what we are living with? Tired of being told its in our heads and to go seek psychotherapy for Depression.

We wouldnt be depressed if we were able to get on with our lives and resume our careers. These doctors should experience ONE day in our shoes and maybe they would be more helpful. We are loosing our sanity , marriages, family and friends..If we have to live this way,,all I ask is to be comfortable and pain free,and if it means the use of medications then thats our decision. All other diseases are treated with medications,Why cant ours without the scroutiny from the doctors and prescribing the meds. Then why do they call themselves Pain Management Doctors if the wont manage our PAIN...

Do you find this discussion helpful?
