Please help me help the 100 million Chronic Pain Patients, who are now losing their doctors, their strong medications, such as Oxycontin, which is the last resort for their pain. The DEA/FDA and some politicians are oppressing us, our doctors and our pharmacies, because we have to take certain medications to help us live a more humane life.. Thanks to the DEA/FDA and some Politicians, Chronic Pain Patients, who live their lives, in constant, extreme pain, from non-curable illnesses, injuries, or bad surgeries and serving our country, are being treated as if we are all drug junkies, abusers. We are not! We follow our doctor's prescriptions, carefully. We are closely monitored, by our doctors, our pharmacies, to see if we are taking our medications, as prescribe, which we all do, for our medications are precious to us. We do not abuse our medications, sell them, or go from doctor to doctor in order to get them for recreational use .But, the DEA/FDA and some others are using the excuse we are accidentally overdosing ourselves, killing ourselves which is untrue. We are very careful with our medications, because we want to live. Our families and loved ones want us to live a full life, if possible. But, more and more of Chronic Pain Patients are now resorting to suicide, to get away from the extreme pain, they are suffering, because of no help, losing our doctors, thanks to the oppression of the DEA/FDA and others.
WE are not part of a cartel, smuggle drugs, or use them to get "High!" We do bounce from doctor to doctor to get our "fix" as junkies do. But, we are losing our doctors, we've seen for years, because they are afraid, so they just disappear or stop seeing us.
Our medications are precious to us, they allow us to live a more humane life, to care for loved ones, be part of our community and stay in our homes. We are able to have friends, go to family gatherings and such, with our medications, able to do the things non-sufferers do. We have the right to live a long, happy life, as many do, who don't have chronic pain.
But, thanks to the DEA and others, 100 million Chronic Pain Patients are losing our doctors, our medications, (the only thing that works for us, after trying everything else) and our pharmacies are being forced to no longer carry these medications. Doctors are afraid to help us, because of fear of losing their licenses, or worse, go to jail. They can't continue their sacred oath to help the sick and the suffering.
Because of this, some Chronic Pain Patients, are now committing suicide, to get away from their intense pain, which is keeping them in beds, in a fetal position. We are not overdosing, but wanting to end our lives, because our pain is so intense, we are unable to breathe, eat or just exist. We are treated less humanely than animals, who are treated with care, being given medications to ease their pain, or putting them to sleep, when all else fails. We do not want to be put to sleep, we want to live a normal life, as much as possible. We are human beings, we deserve help and care.
Chronic Pain Patients are now home bound, unable to leave our homes, or care for ourselves. Some of us are put into hospitals, hospices or homes, which are not our own. We have nothing but our extreme pain, everyday, to look forward to.
Please help me, help these Chronic Pain Patients. Our rights are being taken away from us, including our Veterans, to live a normal, happy life. There will be more Chronic Pain Patients, dying from their horrible pain, their lives, thanks to the DEA/FDA and some politicians', "War on Drugs". They have no medical backgrounds to "judge" us and are not concentrating on the abusers/junkies, the smugglers and the cartels, the biggest problem in our country. Yet they are targeting honest, doctors, honest, suffering patients, pharmacies and some honest manufacturers, supplying the pharmacies, too! If the DEA/FDA and some politicians, who have no idea of suffering, nor have any loved ones, in intense pain, are not stopped, what will they do next? Stop people from even getting medications from over the counter, when ill? Or prevent medications for heart patients, lung patients, and more, just because they don't have cancer?
Please, go to my petition site, sign it and help me get the word out, to help Chronic Pain Patients. Help me make everyone aware of our oppression, our suffering. For someday, you may become a chronic pain patient, perhaps from a serious accident, from serving in wars, or having non-curable illnesses. You may suffer horribly without a doctor's help or necessary medication to live a somewhat normal life. You may never be able to be with family gatherings, have friends, or just be happy, because of this oppression.
You can read some of these, many horrible stories, of Chronic Pain Patients, on sites like: MedsChat.com or by "Googling" Chronic Pain Patients, to see for yourself this horrible stories that are taking place.
I am also writing letters, to the President, on his "Front Porch" website, where he wants to hear from us all. Please go there, if you are a Chronic Pain Patient or know someone who is suffering terribly. Make him aware of 100 million Chronic Pain Patients who are in serious sufferings. Tell him your story at:
Thank you, for helping me, help these suffering patients. May God Bless you all and may GOD keep you safe from this horrible oppression and intense suffering...

||I am a faithful, positive, happy person, who loves to make others smile. I care for the environment, the animals, children and the poor.
It is difficult, however, because I am ill, disabled and am considered low income, even though I used to be a upper middle class citizen.
I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, (Lupus, RA, Scleroderma, which is the hardening of organ walls, tightening of skin), plus Crest Syndrome, (other various illnesses), along with being born with Scoliosis of the spine, I have long term chronic pain, which will never go away. I was on medications that enables me to live and look like a normal person. I've been able to care for my fiance', who died of lung cancer, in my home. Currently, I am caring for my ex-husband, taking him off the streets, because he has no one else to help him. He is blind and destitute.
It is hard for me to live each day, without extreme pain. It is hard to eat, sometimes, brush my teeth and even to sleep. Yet, thanks to the DEA/FDA & some others, my first and second primary doctors have disappeared. I can't find another doctor who will care for a chronic pain patient, in my area.
I have lost my pain medications, which managed to control my extreme pain, helping me to care for others, shop, cook, taking care of us. I followed my prescriptions, by my doctors carefully, because they were precious to me, not abusing them, not getting a "High" from them, for the medications went directly towards relieving my pain. I am mentally aware, as everyone who is healthy is, able to pay my mortgage, my bills and and be able to do what I can to help others. However, without my pain medicatons, which are also preventing more injuries, to my body, such as my heart, I'm unable to keep my home, in good condition and my gardens looking nice. I can no longer travel, to go to the funerals of my mother and my youngest brother, (who died yesterday, from a rare brain disease, which punches holes in the brain, called "CJD" for short).
Yet, I remain hopeful, looking to find a new love, in my life, to grow old with. Someone to love me, as much as I would love and care for him. Who wants to be around someone from suffering in so much pain. Yet, with my medications, I was able to live a normal life. Now, my life is changing for the worse.
I also am trying to help all Chronic Pain Patients, some are Veterans, trying to make their suffering aware, to everyone. To stop the DEA/FDA & some politicians from oppressing our doctors, ourselves and our pharmacies, treating us like criminals, keeping our doctors and our medications from helping us, live a humane life. But, instead of focusing on the real problems, the junkies/abusers, the drug smugglers getting illegal drugs to our children and the dangerous cartels! The DEA/FDA are concentrating on honest doctors, patients, pharmacies, on their "War on Drugs". I live 15 miles, from the US/Mexico Borders and know the fight to stop the drug smugglers, is not enough. Our borders are very open to all crime coming from Mexico. I personally caught an escaped prisoner, from a Mexican prison. My fiance', before becoming ill with lung cancer and I assisted the Border Patrol in catching these smugglers/bandits and others. Of course, those days are over for us.
Yet, the Chronic Pain patients, our doctors and our pharmacies, are being oppressed, by the very organizations that are supposed to keep us safe, to help us. Please read my "Bulletin Board" to see more of this story. Thank you.

|Wild Fact About Me
||I love horses and motorcycles, antique and muscle cars, I trained a horse to the saddle, for a neighbor. I learned to shoot a gun, helping my fiance' keep a wealthy man's estate from drug smugglers and bandits from Mexico. My fiance' passed away.
||I am always a "Glass half full," type of woman. I have been accused of being a "Poly Anna," by many, lol! I try to make people smile and happy, all the time.
|What Gives Me Hope
||My faith, I pray everyday and am always interested in learning about and respecting other beliefs.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||Understanding and helping Chronic Pain Patients, keep their doctors, their medications and their homes. I would stop the judgement of all peoples, no matter their health, religion, color and race. I would stop the dishonesty in government. I would help the poor live a better life. I would stop discrimination of all peoples, skin colors, spiritual beliefs, the rich looking down on the poor, people judging other people, encourage others to be more kind, friendly and help those who can't help themselves. I would also save the animals and feed the children. Then see that everyone is taking care of our environment, cleaner air, stop greenhouse effect and stop people from trashing our beautiful land.
|What/who changed my life and why
