I am getting a kick out of all the buffoons that think they know something about me or my situation to make these disparaging remarks and judgment (al) calls. Most are wonderful and supportive. Always going to be those that are less than. I don't have enough information to call anyone here an alcoholic or drug addict. Love the people in UK that think they know more about US healthcare system than I do. Really seems hurtful to call people who take opiates for pain drug addicts. We get enough of that and think we should be supportive of one another on this site. UK deals with people in pain and drug addicted far better than we do. Our system is so corrupted by the money that a lot of medical facilities put profits over people. Plus being crippled presents more issues than health care. I would think some of you would be more supportive of me willing to take one for the team.
