I dream of a future where pain patients come together and create their own pain clinic. The one pictured in my mind is called Honeysuckle Haven.

Since it will be totally self-sufficient, health insurance will not be required for admittance.

Honeysuckle Haven is not like the Mayo Clinic’s Pain Rehabilitation Center — housed in a building made of concrete and steel, with doctors and tests to monitor your every move — or any other pain programs that currently exist.

And in my future, the drug war will be over, so the Haven will offer all available treatment options.

It will be a sprawling commune, nestled in fields of honeysuckle and bluebonnets, with large trees standing guard nearby. (The land will be a gift from the federal government as reparation for its cruel torture of pain patients in the opioid war, and in memory of those who didn’t survive.)

Each building will offer different treatments, like water therapy and massage. There will be a building for patients who want to fight their pain with vitamins, a farm for those who are currently choosing cannabis, and patches of land for garden therapy.

There will be a building where all sound is cushioned, and another one where patients celebrate loud music. There will be a building for those who like to pray, and bakery therapy for those who like to eat.

There will be grief counseling (and comedy therapy) for all.

Patients will move at their own pace, not dictated by schedules and appointments with professionals.

I also picture a building where the mastery of pain management is taught. Newly-defined experts will come from all over the world to share experiences and discuss the many different issues surrounding pain and the brain.

Patients will come and go; some staying for a day or two, and some for the rest of their lives. But everyone will be treated equally at Honeysuckle Haven (where eviction is against the law).

  1. Sounds like a great dream/idea…. I would so be there for water therapy and massage and the loud musik and working in the garden hell all of it and I prob would stay lol…
    Oh the vitamins for sure that brings me to that BITCH so called Dr I had asked her about IV vitamins and she doesn’t believe in it and then proceeded to say “well the insurance you have would probably not pay for it” also said ” usually only private insurance or private pay gets that option”…..Thanks a lot for the free or not so free put downs doc

    Anyways gurl like I said I would love if such a place was real… I am sick of taking any/all of my medications. I have been on and off many of times and everything I have tried for pain “that I am allowed to take” Lets just say I am still in bad pain that effects me everyday and what I can and can not do… I know you understand that gurl…
    Hugggggs to you my dear one

    • Stay tuned… I’m creating a pill made out of honeysuckle and bluebonnets. And then I’m going to hire Donald Trump to do a TV commercial for the new blue pill. 🙂

      (Warning: Side effects of the new blue pill include baldness and orange skin.)

  2. Sounds like a great dream.. Just how do you get it to be a reality? England is no better than the USA, with palliative care.. The amounts of horrid codeine based or morphine based things out there that make you feel for terrible.. And the plant based medicines that they could give you, but want it to be laboratory controlled.. Sucking out the essence of the plant/s and making them a chemical hybrid!

        • Imagination is one thing — fantasy is another. And fantasies (like religion) can be dangerous. Although I don’t suffer from depression, I do get awfully sad a lot. Nothing wrong with that. Sadness is just as important as happiness. 🙂

        • you are so right gurl they are two different things and they can be deadly…No nothing wrong with getting sad it’s just like you said about being happy ..just the opposite we have our good days and bad..it’s just hard when you can’t get out of that dark place with depression I have been there and it sux most of the time I can handle a lot and get through it but times oh boy…
