I was just thinking about how much fun it would be to leave a daily message for the CDC. Something like…
Hey, CDC, my name is Johnna Stahl. I’ve suffered from intractable pain for 30 years. Your opioid rules may help a few people who could suffer from addiction in the future, but what are you going to do, right now, to help me and 40 million other chronic pain patients?
Hey, CDC, it’s me, Johnna from Albuquerque. I’m back again to remind you that everybody knows the drug war is a failure. Your opioid war is an even bigger failure. How many people have to suffer and die before you come to your senses?
Yes, it’s me again, Johnna from the Q. When will the CDC approve assisted suicide for chronic pain patients?
Hey, CDC, where did you find Kolodny from PFROP? Are all of your “experts” as ignorant as Mr. Kolodny about the treatment of pain?
Hey, CDC, how does it feel to ruin people’s lives? To make them feel like outcasts and drug addicts when they suffer from constant pain? What’s the CDC’s position on creating stigma? Seems like that should be against the law.
Does anybody want to join me in hounding the CDC? I don’t mind being the only one, but maybe I should wait until after payday (budday). I use too many swear words when I don’t have my bud. Just 3 more days…
