Chronic Pain by Debbie EllisI was hurt three years ago at work, only to find out that my employer did not have workman's comp, which has caused problems in my treatment, I have had three operations and still deal with daily pain Sometimes I feel I don't want to live like this-- actually I know I don't. I take Flexeril and Vicodin, and wear a morphine patch. I hate all of it. No doubt I am a walking zombie, as my family will tell you. So I try to quit my meds, but oh God, how I suffer from withdrawals.. I have tried herb, and it helps tremendously, but I also live in the state of I Illinois, an seems they don't care about us, the ones in pain. All my prescription drugs have bad side effects, but I have not heard anything bad about marijuana, only all good. As I begin my day in pain, I wonder will it ever be about what is right for the people. I pray someday the freedom that so many fought for will truly be, and all doctors can treat their patients with out fear of being prosecuted. I pray for us all, Amen.
