“It is a unfortunate situation where chronic pain patients have to suffer, literally, for a crisis they don’t own. 100 million people in the US have chronic pain, and some of them need opiates for effective pain management. Of course, many of them now no longer get that. I question whose conscious the rise in suicide rates in that population that should rest upon. I live in Canada and similar policies are coming here. One problem simply amplifying another. What a vile horror to leave people suffering like that, without alternative and effective pain management strategies in place before they do so. Trying to resolve the suffering of some does not justify causing the suffering in others. It just doesn’t. #Painmatters” Nikki Albert
