Ron has a on going post regarding the CDC "guidelines" which is very helpful. I wanted to start a new one this one is in hopes of getting as many people as possible to tell their story to the CDC. I have communicated with the CDC and I am hoping to get others to not send bashing letters but letters that tell all about your story and how it has impacted your family in this Chronic Pain world. Tell them how pain medication is part of your "blend" if it is plus other things you have done to address your pain. You know just how you or others have been impacted by changes in being prescribed pain medications. Anything that may change things you never know give them thought to look closer at things and ways to decrease the problem without hurting those who need it.
If you go to their web-site there is the e-mail address: Email CDC-INFO
they have been good to reply to my communication with them but not giving me any answers mostly just refer me somewhere else.
The reason this came up is a response I got like I was the only one feeling this way and that I did not really understand what was going on.
You know they need to look closer at what is the reality maybe this will help motivate them it couldn't hurt.
