I hope that all those, legislators, cops, prosecutors, bureaucrats, etc, who make it difficult, dangerous, expensive or illegal for the suffering to obtain the palliative drugs that they need, will die screaming and burn in hell.
Those people are not confused or unwise or mistaken. They are evil.
Wait till they are in the hospital with pain. They will be the first to request morphine.
I for one refuse pain medication (if possible) while in the hospital because I value a clear mind. But I have seen others in severe pain that clearly benefited from morphine while in the hospital.
I was chatting with my older brother the other night and he told me he was doing a property insurance inspection at a liquor store that is near several large retirement communities near the NJ shore and while he was there he noticed quite a few elderly folks buying whiskey and brandy. The owner of the liquor store told him that business has definitely increased among the older folks, a lot more elderly folks coming than ever before. When my brother asked him why that was; the liquor store owner said that a number of them told him that they couldnt get their pain medications anymore so they pop several aspirins and wash it down with some booze in order to get some pain relief.
“Doctors used to be well acquainted with the patient and their reactions to different medications and would tailor them to the individual, but unfortunately most doctors dont bother anymore and its only going to get worse.
Those who dont fall into the average patient category will and are suffering as you shared your and your wifes experiences.”
My current Ortho pod/foot surgeon, listened to me and provided the alternatives, and he relayed my concerns and wishes to the Surgery Center Anesth. and the Rns.
